Meghan Markle‘s dad Thomas Markle is talking to the press again, spreading tales of woe that include his anger over never actually meeting her husband Prince Harry in person and being totally excised from her life since she joined the royal family, according to The Sun.

A source says that Thomas’ constant drama has forced her to cut ties with him. (Quick refresher: he reportedly posed for photographs for paparazzi in a bid to make himself look better in the lead-up to Harry and Meghan’s 2018 wedding, then skipped out on walking her down the aisle at the last minute, complaining bitterly the whole time about his treatment at the hands of Meghan and the royals).

An insider tells The Sun: “It’s a terribly sad situation but Meghan has made the very difficult decision that she doesn’t have an active relationship with her father any more. This was actually a decision she made some time ago and it is something she’s now coming to terms with. It’s obviously heart-breaking for her but she has to protect herself, her husband and her son. Thomas hasn’t met Harry and it’s unlikely he’ll meet Archie either.”

This gem dropped after Thomas dragged Meghan and Harry in a long interview in the Daily Mail. He said: “There was never any problem between Meghan and me until recently. I've stayed quiet because Meghan was pregnant with Archie but I'm speaking out now because they and their PR people are continuing to ghost me out of her life…Of course I'm disappointed not to see Archie. I had hoped becoming a mother would mellow Meghan and she would reach out.”
