The Markle family drama continues thanks to Meghan Markle’s dad, Thomas Sr., and his recent television interview with Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain. Reports have surfaced that the palace has banned Thomas from future Royal events or contact with the family; and since Meghan failed to send her dad a card for Father’s Day, her sister Samantha is calling the Duchess of Sussex out.
According to The Express, Meghan has cut ties with many people in her family over the years, and only her mother, Doria Ragland, was present at her wedding to Prince Harry last month. Her dad Thomas Sr. was supposed to give her away, but after admitting to staged paparazzi photos and suffering from a heart attack, he was unable to attend.

Meghan did not invite her half-siblings, Samantha and Thomas Jr., and neither of them has been shy about their dislike for their sister. As soon as the news broke of Meghan and Prince Harry’s relationship, Samantha immediately started to publicly attack the Duchess, and her most recent accusation is that Meghan ignored their dad on Father’s Day and she is not concerned about his well-being.
“Humanitarians do not ignore their fathers… Meg. Happy Father’s Day to all of the self-sacrificing fathers who gave us everything that we are. Maybe a Father’s Day visit after the PR stunt said a visit would happen, would be appropriate. Ya think? If you’re so worried about Dad, demonstrate it,” said Samantha.
Thomas Jr. has also spoken out his half-sister and her relationship with Prince Harry. He wrote a letter to the Prince last month that read, “Dear Prince Harry, It’s not too late. Meghan Markle is obviously not the right woman for you.”
He also called the wedding a “fake fairy tale.” But, since writing the letter, Thomas Jr. says he had a “moment of madness.”
It is pretty clear that Meghan doesn’t communicate much with her family – outside of her parents – and they have claimed she refuses to help her father financially. They also call her a “social-climber” who started treating them like strangers once she became famous.

But Thomas Sr. is reportedly “desperate” to bring the whole family together soon so they can make peace. He wants Meghan to fly to America, so she can reconcile with Samantha and Thomas Jr., and he wants to finally meet his daughter’s new husband.
A source claims that Thomas Sr. hopes something can happen within the next few months. They add that Meghan’s dad knows this won’t be easy, but thinks it is worth the try.
During his interview with Morgan, Thomas Sr. said that he did get to talk with Prince Harry on the phone before the wedding, and they talked about Brexit and President Trump.
Meghan Markle has not made a formal statement since her father’s infamous interview.
