According to the Daily Mail, Thomas Markle said: I hope Meghan gets in contact but my dad needs to prepare himself for it never happening. She did not get in contact after his heart attack.
But what she needs to remember is that she is only in Buckingham Palace with Harry because of her dad. He paid for her education and fancy clothes. He helped her become the exceptional woman she is and I beg her to recognise that.
Meghans half-brother said that hes been in contact with their dad and apologised for publicly criticising the duchess.
He added: Ive had no business making things worse between him, Meghan and Harry, and I want us all, but especially them, to be a proper family and reconcile.
