Meghan Markle's Father Shares Alleged Letter From the Duchess

"The week of the wedding to hear about you having a heart attack through a tabloid was horrifying". Since then, he has spoken critically of Meghan to several tabloids.

Mr Markle told the newspaper that contrary to claims made by Meghan's friends to the media, the letter was not an attempt to resolve their rift. I begged you to accept help-we sent someone to you home.and instead of speaking to you me to accept this or any help, you stopped answering your phone and chose to only speak to tabloids.you haven't reached out to me since the week of our wedding, and while you claim that you have no way of contacting me my phone number has remained the same.

In the handwritten note, Meghan is said to have accused Thomas Markle of "unwarranted pain" and "making the choice to not tell the truth".

Meghan pictured with her father Thomas Markle in happier times. Reportedly the Duchess of Sussex has revealed her excitement at waiting to find out the gender of her firstborn with Prince Harry.

"Daddy, it is with a heavy heart that I write this, not understanding why you have chosen to take this path, turning a blind eye to the pain you are causing", the letter read, in extracts obtained by The Daily Mail.

"If you love me... allow us to live our lives in peace. Please stop lying, please stop creating so much pain, please stop exploiting my relationship with my husband", Meghan continued.

It seems, by releasing the letter, Thomas Markle has not internalised his daughter's pleas.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Mr Markle said that the letter wasn't the "olive branch" that he had hoped for. "I was expecting something that would be a pathway to reconciliation. I was so devastated I couldn't show it to anyone and never would have had it not been for the events of last week".

The letter's existence emerged last week, after close friends of the duchess gave a series of anonymous interviews to People magazine.

The former Hollywood lighting director, who now lives in Mexico, said that he never meant to make the handwritten letter public "out of respect for Meghan" - but says he has been forced to do so now because its contents have been falsely portrayed.
