Meghan Markle's father appeals to Queen Elizabeth to get his daughter back in touch
Meghan Markle's father directly appealed to Britain's Queen Elizabeth on Monday (December 17) to intervene and end his estrangement from his daughter, the wife of Prince Harry.
Former U.S. actress Meghan, now the Duchess of Sussex, married Harry, the queen's grandson and sixth-in-line to the throne, in a glittering ceremony at Windsor Castle in May.
But the immediate build-up to the wedding was overshadowed by her father, Thomas, a former lighting director for U.S. TV soaps and sitcoms, who pulled out days beforehand after undergoing heart surgery.
Meghan's father said he had not had contact with his daughter for months and repeated text messages to Meghan had gone unanswered.
When asked what message he had for Queen Elizabeth, 92, Thomas Markle said: "I would appreciate anything she can do and I would think that she would want to resolve the family problems." "All families, royal or otherwise, are the same and they should all be together, certainly around the holidays," Markle added.
