"I would like my relationship with Meghan to be like father and daughter like we've always been", he said. "I know that she was eager to live closer to her daughter", a source - described as "a close friend in L.A." - tells the Express.
"Sadly, Ms Markle has a tendency to dispense with people as she clambers up the social ladder and finds something "better", as her poor old father is now discovering".
Mr Markle, 74, announced days before the Windsor wedding that he had suffered a heart attack and would not be attending. "He said, 'They will eat you alive.' He was right", Thomas Markle said.
"Meghan asked me to tell Samantha to stop talking about her and then asked me to stop talking to Samantha", he claimed.
According to Markle, Prince Harry said: "If you had listened to me this would never have happened'".
Extended travelling during the first twelve weeks of pregnancy could leave women experiencing nausea and extreme tiredness - and it is also during this time that the risk of miscarriage is greater.
Mr Markle said that he had been so upset at being berated while he recovered in hospital from a heart attack that he put the phone down on the prince. Instead, he told the prince he was being "measured for a hoodie". So - which is it Mr. Markle?
As the source explains, Ragland "fell in love with England and told me when she got back that it's somewhere she believes she too could happily live". "Right now Meghan absolutely has no plans to see her father and [Meghan and Harry] are about to head off to Balmoral for a short summer break".
'The Palace, who usually takes a firm policy of not commenting on personal matters, is considering a more aggressive strategy to deal with this situation with both her father and her sister.
Harry is on a private working visit to Botswana with his charity Rhino Conservation, Kensington Palace confirmed last week.
On top of all the controversy with Thomas, Meghan's outspoken half-sister, Samantha Grant, is reportedly set to join the U.K.'s upcoming season of Celebrity Big Brother, where she'll likely air out even more drama, the source adds.
