Meghan Markle is getting ready to return to the United States. The Duchess of Sussex is reportedly planning on a trip to Los Angeles in the near future. While the former actress will only be a few hours away from her father, Thomas Markle, she is not planning on seeing him under any circumstance.
Meghan has not talked to her father since marrying Prince Harry in May. Over the past few months, Thomas has bashed the royal family in multiple interviews with the press. Thomas claims that the royal family is shunning him and refusing to answer his calls. In his most recent interview, Thomas compared the royal family to a cult and challenged Meghan to break her silence and contact him.
So when Thomas Markle said last week “this is the last story I’ll sell, I mean tell” what he meant was until the next offer comes alongs? Why can’t he just leave his daughter alone? I’m angry, I can’t imagine how Meghan must feel. KD https://t.co/OtsYzw4J9Q

According to The Sun, Meghan has zero plans of reaching out to her father and meeting him during her upcoming trip to Los Angeles. Even though the Suits alum will be less than 150 miles away, she is not going to talk to Thomas.
She is, however, going to spend some quality time with her mom, Doria Ragland. As fans will recall, Ragland was the only person from Meghan’s side of the family to go to her wedding.
Part of the reason why Meghan wants nothing to do with her father is because she wants to protect the royal family. Markle and Harry believe that Thomas will leak any conversations they have with the press and are not willing to take that chance. Given his recent interactions with the media, it is probably a good idea to give him some space until the media frenzy cools off.
Thomas was not present for Markle’s wedding because of health issues. He reportedly had a heart attack a few days before the nuptials. At the time, Thomas was involved in a major controversy after having staged photographs for paparazzi, a move he later admitted was wrong.

In fact, Thomas recently revealed that Harry warned him against talking with the press and told him it was a bad idea.
“And he’s completely right. I made a terrible mistake which I have paid for ever since,” Thomas shared.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have not responded to Thomas’ controversial comments to the media. So far, the royal family has remained silent on the issue and are apparently hoping the drama will go away before it gets any worse. Thomas Markle, meanwhile, is showing no signs of stopping.
