Royal family's alleged plan to silence Thomas Markle is not working

Though they have never met, Harry and Mr Markle had enjoyed a series of "warm and chatty" phone conversations after Meghan told him of her romance with the Royal.

Thomas Markle, who lives in Mexico, also acknowledged he has had no contact with Harry and Meghan, now the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, since before their wedding.

"At first I thought, 'That's OK, because I'm part of the wedding, ' but I would have loved to have had an invitation to put in a frame", he tells the publication.

"I felt like I was being blamed for my mistakes when I was in my hospital bed recovering from a heart attack", Thomas Sr tells The Sun.

It came after the revelation that he had worked with the paparazzi to stage photos which appeared to show him preparing for the wedding.

"The things were being said that hurt me. I just want to re-establish the relationship with my daughter".

He admitted how he believes his interviews have "locked the door, pulled the windows down and closed the shades" between him and the Royal Family.

However, despite locking horns with Harry, 33, over the pictures, Thomas was expecting the couple to visit him in the USA after their honeymoon - particularly as he had just undergone extensive surgery on his heart - but his wish never came true.

"I love you. I miss you", Markle said in a July television interview.

Kensington Palace declined to comment on all the interviews given by the Markles, as well as on reports that it was trying to stop Markle from speaking to the press.

The same aide suggested that "the Palace should have invited the whole Markle family, as even if they hadn't all come, it would have reduced the fallout from disgruntled relatives".

Mr Markle, 74, announced days before the Windsor wedding that he had suffered a heart attack and would not be attending.

Meghan Markle doesn't have a big family, and as we all know, her father probably won't be in the running for world's best parent any time soon.

UK's Express added Ragland was "deeply impressed by the royal family, including the Queen" during and after Markle's wedding to Britain's Prince Harry, who is sixth in line to the throne. "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".
