Thomas Markle has recently been using media as a source to communicate his messages to his daughter Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, but it looks like she does not approve of the tricks he has used. A close friend of Meghan states that the Duchess will only talk to her father if he contacts her in a "respectful manner" and stops going to the media.

Meghan has reportedly not spoken to Thomas ever since she got married to Prince Harry. Meghan's close friend states that Thomas always has a way of contacting his daughter and it is none other than his ex-wife, Doria Ragland. Doria and Thomas split when Meghan was six years old but even after years, the two are in touch. The close friend suggests that going to the media is not the only solution in Thomas' hand. 

"The only reason Meghan hasn't spoken to her father yet is that she's yet to hear from him in a respectful manner," the source told Daily Mail. "Thomas is speaking to the press more than he's reached out and spoken to his own daughter. Despite Thomas' claim that he has no way to reach Meghan, he knows that her mother Doria is in touch with her and Thomas knows how to reach Doria. If Thomas truly wanted to speak with Meghan, he could easily have sent a letter to her mother and asked her to pass it along."

The friend added, "Unfortunately that wouldn't sell papers or fit into his fabricated and salacious narrative." Meghan and Thomas have had a fallout ever since it was reported that he staged the paparazzi pictures. He recently opened up about not being happy about the phone call he received from Harry regarding the pictures.

Meghan's dad said that he was "upset" to receive such a call while he was recovering from a heart attack and called it "rude". "Harry told me that I should never go to the press. That it would end in tears. He said, 'They will eat you alive'. He was right," Thomas recalled. Instead of taking Harry's advice, Thomas decided to do what he thought was right and got himself involved in the idea of staging photographs for a little money. After Harry came to know about the photos, he immediately called Thomas to set the record straight. 

Thomas alleges that Prince Harry said, "If you had listened to me, this would never have happened." Thomas says that he told Harry "Maybe it would be better for you guys if I was dead… then you could pretend to be sad," before hanging up the call. He also added that he was upset to see that he did not get the same treatment as Doria did during the wedding. Meanwhile, he revealed that he was planning to give a speech at their wedding but when he asked Meghan, she reportedly told him that was no space for his speech at the wedding. 

"I was going to recount the funny story about how she broke the news to me about dating Harry: 'Daddy, I've met a man… Daddy, he's English… Daddy, he's a prince,' she said. I thought it was a cute story. Like any father, I wanted to say a few words. I was going to thank the royal family for welcoming my beautiful daughter. But it was a speech that I was never going to be allowed to give. That hurt," he recalled.
