  • Meghan Dad Father letter

Kensington Palace confirmed Thomas Markle's non-attendance at the wedding via a statement the day before, which left many wondering who would take his place and how his daughter, Meghan, would be feeling. Every time it gets cold like this, I take them to the guard stations.

In the letter the duchess pleaded with him to stop "lying" to the press writing, "If you love me, as you tell the press you do, please stop".

He reportedly showed the Daily Mail text messages sent between him, Prince Harry and Meghan, and text messages that were left without responses.

George Clooney has spoken out against the way Meghan Markle has been treated since she joined the royal family past year - comparing her to Princess Diana.

She begged her father, who lives in Mexico, to stop giving interviews and communicating with the press, and to leave her and Harry "in peace". "I still believe he should have flown to L.A.to see me, first to ask for my daughter's hand and later to sort out the problems between us".

However, once the wedding was over, a rumoured rift emerged between father and daughter over his absence at the wedding and also his eagerness to talk to the media about his daughter. This week the American actress, now married to Prince Harry, sent a letter to her dad to explain her feelings about his behaviour since she officially joined the Royal Family which he subsequently leaked to the press.

Meghan said that he did not call to tell her that he could not make it to the wedding and that he was spreading lies in saying that she had not helped him financially.

In an exclusive reveal with Daily Mail, he revealed the letter dated August 2018, three months after the wedding. "This you know. No texts, no missed calls, no outreach from you - just more global interviews you're being paid to do to say harmful and hurtful things that are untrue".

Speaking to Sky News, businesswoman Michelle Dewberry claimed Mr Markle's behaviour is "disgusting".

He added: "I'm the father of twins, I have enough sh- to deal with - literally!"

"Just before he died he wrote me this really long letter about how he really was in turmoil with what he had done".

Thomas Markle published the five-page letter from the Duchess of Sussex at the weekend after close pals of Meghan gave interviews to a United States magazine.

A source previously told the United Kingdom magazine that Kensington Palace staff was spending "a lot of hours" managing the negative comments directed at Middleton and Markle.
