Meghan Markle’s Dad Has Been Desperately Trying to Contact Her Since She Moved to LA
Fame can be a challenging thing for anyone to manage, especially when it comes to the family members who are adjacent to a famous person. Meghan, Duchess of Sussex was relatively well known prior to marrying Prince Harry and becoming a member of the British royal family.
However, following their engagement and subsequent marriage, the former actor has become one of the most well-known women on the planet. Unfortunately, this amount of attention was too much for Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle to handle.
The 75-year-old was lured by cash payouts from the media which subsequently led him to become estranged from his daughter. Now, two years later, Meghan and Prince Harry have welcomed their first child, Archie and they’ve left the royal fold. It seems that Markle is desperate to get back in touch with his daughter.

It’s disappointing because she actually got every girl’s dream. Every young girl wanted to become a princess and she got that and now she’s tossing that away, for, it looks like she’s tossing that away for money. It’s kind of embarrassing to me. I think both of them are turning into lost souls at this point. I don’t know what they’re looking for.
