Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expected to fly to Mexico to meet Thomas Markle
Thomas Markle missed the royal wedding due to his surgery but expects and hopes his daughter Meghan and Prince Harry will consent to pay him a visit in Mexico
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry got married on May 19 and became the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. While everyone was there to witness this beautiful moment, there was one person who wasn't and it was Meghan's father, Thomas Markle. Even though he wasn't present to his daughter say 'I do', it is believed that the newlyweds will be flying to Mexico to meet him.
According to The Sun, ever since Thomas had heart surgery, the pair has been in contact with him and checking on his health. “Meghan and Thomas are both devastated he wasn’t able to attend the wedding and have discussed seeing each other soon," the source told the tabloid. “They have been speaking all week, mostly by text. She has been worried about him and checking how he is regularly."
It so happens that Thomas himself wants to meet the newlyweds. “Thomas has told other family members he hopes and expects Meghan and Harry to come to see him," the source added. This comes after Meghan confirmed that her father will not be attending the wedding due to his health issues.
Thomas was previously accused of staging photos for the paparazzi. Shortly after this came to light, he suffered chest pains and was admitted to a hospital. Even though he wasn't present at the wedding, he did not miss the chance to see his beautiful daughter get married to a Prince.
Talking to TMZ, Thomas recalled how he watched the wedding on TV. "I wish I were there and I wish them all my love and all happiness," he said.
The service was beautiful and it's history. I will always regret not being able to be there and not being able to hold my daughter's hand." Thomas went on to proclaim his love for his daughter.
"My baby girl is a duchess and I love her so much... When you watch your child get married, every thought goes through your mind, every memory from the first day she was born, the first time I held her," he added.
"Now I pray that Harry and Meghan can go on a nice honeymoon and rest and relax, and all of my relatives will just shut up about everything," he continued. He also revealed that right before the wedding he sent Meghan a text saying he loves her.
Thomas was set to walk his daughter down the aisle but soon after the fake photos expose and the heart attack, he was forced to withdraw. He had hoped that Doria Ragland, Meghan's mum would have stepped up in his place, but as it turns out, it was Prince Charles who had the honor of doing so.
The royal wedding had been in the news months before because of the bitter relations between Meghan and her family. Step-sister Samantha Markle and some other family members made noise that they were not invited to the couple's wedding.
Samantha, in fact, went on as much as to accept that she was the one behind getting her dad to stage those fake photos. Meghan's family had been making it difficult for her in the days closer to the wedding and maybe that is why Thomas hopes that his family will no longer meddle in his daughter's married life.
