Thomas Markle plans on flying to London to meet daughter Meghan Markle
Thomas Markle is not happy with how he ended things with daughter and now he plans to take matters in his own hands
Thomas Markle and Meghan Markle's relationship went crumbling down ever since he questioned the royal family and it does not look like things are going to get better any time soon. However, he is not giving up just yet! Thomas's relationship with Meghan and the royals ended after it was reported that he had been posing for paparazzi. While the royals still hold that against him, Thomas seems to have moved past his past mistakes.
Speaking to The Sun, Thomas revealed that he is considering heading to London in order to meet the Duchess of Sussex. “If I chose in a month, or a couple of months, to go to England — I want to see my daughter. I’m thinking about it,” he said.
“I don’t care whether she is p---- off at me or not," he added. Thomas hinted that he might have planned how he will take things forward and it does not include any big gestures. Thomas plans on booking a hotel room and will try to contact Meghan. “It’s sad that it’s got to this point. I’m sorry it’s come to this. Yes, some of it is my fault. But I’ve already made it clear that I’m paying for this for the rest of my life,” he said.
Thomas also pleaded his daughter to pick up his call as he suggested that the two have not spoken to each other ever since she got married to Prince Harry on May 19, nearly two months have passed since then. "It is probably the longest time I have gone without speaking to her ever,” he said. "I just want to clear the air and tell her how proud I am of her."
Even though Thomas previously called the royal family "outdated", Thomas said that he would love to meet Queen Elizabeth. “If she’ll meet Donald Trump, why not me?” he questioned. “I’d like to be treated by the royal family like Meghan’s father,” he continued. “I should be regarded with the respect of any other father of the bride. This comes after Thomas said that he believes Meghan is terrified of her new role in the royal family.
“My thing about my daughter right now is that I think she is terrified. I see it in her eyes, I see it in her face and I see it in her smile,” he said. “I’ve seen her smile for years. I know her smile. I don’t like the one I’m seeing now. This one isn’t even a stage smile — this is a pained smile,” he continued. Thomas further added that it “might be just having a couple bad days,” but he worries “she’s under too much pressure.”
"There’s a high price to pay to be married to that family,” he remarked. Thomas was set to walk Meghan down the aisle but after the scandal broke loose, it seemed close to impossible that he would be performing the duty. Unfortunately, Thomas had to undergo a heart surgery immediately after the news about his photos came to light which made him take the decision of not attending the wedding.
