Meghan Markle Will Always Feel 'Genuinely Devastated' About How Her Father Has 'Victimized' Her


Five of Meghan Markle‘s bestiez broke their silence about what it’s been like to have the rumor mill constantly churning about their BFF, especially when her father Thomas Markle doesn’t know how to keep a lid on it.
The patriarch has shared in more than a few interviews that his daughter doesn’t reach out to him, or that he doesn’t have a way of contacting her or Prince Harry, but Meghan’s closest friends say that’s just not true.

One of the Duchess’ longtime friends shared with People:

“He knows how to get in touch with her. Her telephone number hasn’t changed. He’s never called; he’s never texted. It’s super painful, because Meg was always so dutiful. I think she will always feel genuinely devastated by what he’s done. And at the same time, because she’s a daughter, she has a lot of sympathy for him.”

Despite the drama that led up to her wedding in May, the former Suits star was still focused on trying to get her dad across the pond:

“Meg and Harry were still so focused on getting [Tom] to London. At no point was there talk of ‘Now that we know he lied, he’s in trouble.’ Tom wouldn’t take her calls, wouldn’t take Harry’s calls. The next morning when the car got there [to take him to the airport], he wouldn’t get in. [Later] Meg heard he had a heart attack and she’s calling and texting, even up to the night before the wedding. It was like, ‘Please pick up. I love you, and I’m scared.’ It was endless.”

And even after he didn’t walk her down the aisle, Meghan wanted to make amends, without the media, but Thomas was still trying to get his 15 minutes of fame:

“After the wedding she wrote him a letter. She’s like, ‘Dad, I’m so heartbroken. I love you. I have one father. Please stop victimizing me through the media so we can repair our relationship.’ Because every time her team has to come to her and fact-check something [he has said], it’s an arrow to the heart. He writes her a really long letter in return, and he closes it by requesting a photo op with her. And she feels like, ‘That’s the opposite of what I’m saying. I’m telling you I don’t want to communicate through the media, and you’re asking me to communicate through the media. Did you hear anything I said?’ It’s almost like they’re ships passing.”

This is such a toxic and manipulative relationship for all involved — but we’re sure he’ll have more to say to the press after her baby is born…
