AceShowbiz - Meghan Markle's dad apparently can't stand the silent treatment he receives from his daughter. The 74-year-old former TV lighting director, whose relationship with the expecting Duchess of Sussex gets strained after he gave multiple unauthorized interviews about the royal family members, reveals in a new interview that he has done so many things to reach out to Meghan.
"I've sent several texts. Her number hasn't changed and they haven't bounced back," Thomas tells the Daily Mail. It seems like he insinuates that Meghan has seen the messages but opt not to reply.
But that's not stopping him from trying, as he adds, "I've pleaded with her to pick up the phone. I wrote her a two-page letter and sent it by certified mail via her representative in Los Angeles." Thomas, who currently lives in Mexico, continues, "I asked her why she was believing the lies."
Since it seems like Meghan, who reportedly didn't tell his father about her pregnancy, is not planning to reconnect to him anytime soon, Thomas goes to his ex-wife Doria Ragland. "I even hand-delivered a letter to Doria asking her why our daughter won't speak to me," he shares.
"Everyone says, why don't I just shut the f**k up? That Meghan can't speak to me because I'll give away secrets. But that's bulls**t," he adds. "I've been accused of every terrible thing you can think of. In one magazine they had an awful story about Prince Charles right beside one about me. But no one is shunning Prince Charles."
Thomas goes on saying that all the attempt "has been met with a stony silence." According to him, the royal couple's silence to speak to him "means people continue to attack me and write lies about me."
"If she would just speak to me, things could be different," he speaks of Meghan, whose childhood nickname was Bean. "I love Meghan very much. I want her and Harry to have a beautiful, healthy baby and a great life. But I want them to stop believing the lies."
Another source, meanwhile, claims that Meghan "made it clear that they could only have a relationship if he kept his silence." The source continues, "She told him that he couldn't speak to the press, plain and simple. But he keeps doing that, and so she feels that she cannot trust him."
"[Meghan] has also said if they are to have a relationship, then he has to cut off contact with the rest of his family, including Samantha, who Meghan blames for a lot of the problems with her father," the source also says. "The thing is, whatever Samantha has done, she is still Thomas' daughter, so that's a hard call. And as for speaking to the press, he says he doesn't know how else to get Meghan's attention."
