Thomas Markle continues to blab to the press about his daughter and the British blue-bloods, and until now, they have all been powerless to stop him.
A fresh wave of tabloid interviews from Markle over the weekend looks like proof this plan has gone nowhere. It has been revealed that the 61-year-old is moving to London to be near her daughter and Prince Harry.
Before the wedding, Prince Harry had warned Markle Sr.in a warm way - and from painful experience - the pitfalls of the paparazzi.
Over the weekend, Markle again gave a series of interviews to The Mail on Sunday which are at least as personal as revealing as what came before.
Mr Markle also admitted lying to Prince Harry, insisting the photos were not staged.
So much so, he said he told Harry "it would be better for you guys if I was dead..." before hanging up on their heated call.
I'm no expert, but not talking to the media is probably a good way to get that relationship with his daughter repaired.
Suits actress Meghan Markle got her happy ending both on and off the screen.
"Throughout our lives, dad always put Meg first, above me and my sister, but if what he is saying is true it appears she is abusing his love for her", Meghan's half-brother Thomas Jr. told The Mirror. "I just feel sorry for her father".
Samantha has previously tweeted about Meghan's failure to help their father financially.
Speaking about her mum, Meghan has said Doria is a "free-spirited" role model. And even before she became a member of 'the firm, ' Meghan had long used her She-Ra-worthy power to make a difference, from her position as an advocate for women's rights with the United Nations to her humanitarian work with World Vision Canada.
A source tells ET that there are now no plans in place for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to see Thomas, who has continued to do paid interviews with various outlets despite his daughter's frustrations.
Despite Meghan remaining quite on the matter, it's reportedly affecting her greatly, with the Duchess stress getting too much for the royal - so much so that she might be pulling out of her trip to Australia in October.
Last month he said that Meghan was not picking up his calls and that the liaison at Kensington Palace was not answering his messages.
