It would be an understatement to say that this last year has been a life-changing one for Meghan Markle. In the past twelve months, royal fans have witnessed the former Suits actress get engaged to Prince Harry, marry him in a royal wedding, and announce a pregnancy just a few short months after walking down the aisle.
But, during this whirlwind of a year, Markle has cut her father, Thomas, out of her life, and he wants to get the broken family back together before his royal daughter gives birth. Could the Duchess of Sussex give her dad another chance before her baby arrives?

“Thomas is praying Meghan will give him one last chance this holiday season,” an insider recently revealed. “He’s clinging to the fact that Christmas was such a special time for them growing up, and hoping against hope that her heart will soften and she’ll at least pick up the phone and patch things up.”
According to Radar Online, Markle stopped talking to her dad shortly after her wedding when he made a series of embarrassing comments about the royal family during multiple paid interviews. Thomas also damaged his relationship with Meghan when he allegedly lied about his health after a staged photo scandal led to him to opt out of his daughter’s wedding.
Thomas has apologized repeatedly for what he did and says that he needs his daughter in his life. However, the insider says that Thomas is “growing impatient” with Meghan, and will start talking again soon if he doesn’t get any encouragement from his royal offspring.
The source added that when Samantha Markle (Meghan’s half-sister) starts to ramble, it means that Thomas isn’t far behind.
Royal biographer Robert Johnson traveled with Harry and Meghan on their recent royal tour down under. And, he revealed that when he asked the newlyweds if they had told Thomas about their pregnancy, they replied, “No comment.”

Today, The Duchess of Sussex introduced her friend and Michelin Starred Chef @chefclaresmyth to the women of the Hubb Community Kitchen to see how the proceeds from ‘Together: Our Community Cookbook’ are making a difference. Thanks to the funds raised by Together, the kitchen has been renovated with the women’s input, to capture the joyful spirit of the Hubb Community Kitchen and provide a safe and professional space to bring the community together over food. The women are now able to use the kitchen seven days a week, and have been empowered to start their own new projects to help others in their community. #CookTogether
Johnson isn’t sure why Meghan has rejected her father, but he does believe there is a deep reason for it. He says that the situation appears to be “very complicated” and families are difficult. So, it doesn’t look like this is going to go away anytime soon.
The royal biographer does not think that Meghan’s relationship with Samantha is repairable, but he believes that all Meghan needs to do is have an honest conversation with her father. He says that Thomas has been badly treated, and even though Meghan doesn’t want anything to do with her past, the fact remains that he is her dad.
Thomas Markle is holding on to the hope that Meghan Markle will let him back into her life before she welcomes her first child with Prince Harry. He wants a Christmas reprieve after being “frozen out in such a brutal fashion.” And, he is hoping for a call before the holiday.
