It doesn’t look like there is going to be an end to the Markle family drama any time soon. Meghan Markle’s half-brother, Thomas Jr., wrote a letter to Queen Elizabeth earlier this month, and in it, he begged the British monarch to give their father, Thomas Sr. a royal title – and to let him see his daughter.
According to Radar Online, Thomas Jr. told Queen Elizabeth in a handwritten note that he believes Thomas Sr. and Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, deserved royal titles. He added that he thought the gesture would make his dad proud.
“Possibly this could happen if Meghan were to bring Tom SNR to the palace sooner than later because my father deserved to be treated like Royalty like he treated Meghan her whole life. She owes him that,” Thomas Jr. wrote.

The estranged father and daughter have not spoken since he started making controversial comments to the press last month after missing Meghan’s wedding on May 19th because of heart surgery. The unauthorized interviews have resulted in the palace banning Thomas Sr. from having any contact with the royal family.
Sources say that the Royals were “shocked and blindsided” by Thomas Sr.’s comments during his interview with Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain. The former Hollywood lighting director told the journalist about his phone chats with Prince Harry that covered politics and other topics.
He also gave The Sun a tell-all interview where he revealed that he believes Meghan is under a tremendous amount of stress after marrying Prince Harry, and she is smiling through the pain.
In Thomas Jr.’s letter, he didn’t mention his father’s comments to the media, but he did ask for the Queen’s help in convincing Meghan to bring Thomas Sr. to the palace so he could meet the royal family and give them the chance to spend some time together. He added that he recently went to see his dad after his heart surgery, and “his health is not that good.”
@TMZ Tell your fat friend Thomas Markle, his “threats” just explain why he’s cut off
The grifting slob lost any public sympathy
They’re not giving miserable Daddy any more quotes to sell. Much less a future grandchild to sell & profit from.#SCUM https://t.co/QvRuQl7cr9

Thomas Jr. fears that if the Duchess of Sussex waits too long, she will not be able to see her father again because it will be too late.
Thomas Sr. says that he will continue to talk to the media until the Royals talks to him. However, he firmly believes that his daughter is under too much pressure, and there is “a high price to pay to be married to that family.”
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have not yet commented on any of the remarks made by the members of the Markle family.
