Thomas Markle, the estranged father of Meghan Markle, went on television Tuesday to beg his daughter to allow him to meet his grandchildren, Archie and Lilibet.
While appearing on “Good Morning Britain,” Thomas Markle implored that he is “very concerned” that he won’t live to meet Meghan and Prince Harry’s two children, Archie and Lilibet.
Young Archie is now 2 and sister Lilibet is just 4 months old. Meghan gave birth to Archie in 2019 and Lilibet back in June of this year.
“We’re at a point where I think both of us, we should grow up, talk, make up for the sake of the children,” Thomas said. “This is ridiculous. Almost four years. It’s crazy.”
“My message for the kids is that they have two loving families,” he added. “… I think it’s important for them to know that they have two families and eventually they’re going to grow up and they’re going to want to know more about them.”
Thomas went on to allege that “people” in California have told him he could pursue legal action to meet his grandchildren, and that he would win if he does so.
Despite this, he claims that he is not interested in going the legal route.
“People have suggested in California I could sue to see my grandkids,” he explained. “But I think if I did that I’d be doing the same thing Meghan and Harry are doing. I don’t want to include my grandchildren in this situation. I want to see my grandchildren with friendly parents and friendship all around. I don’t want hostile parents when seeing my grandchildren.”

She has been estranged from her father since he was caught staging photos for the paparazzi before her 2018 wedding to Harry.
Thomas alleges that Meghan wanted him to cut off contact with her half-siblings, Samantha and Thomas Jr., but he said that he “couldn’t” do it.
“Eventually sooner or later, she should start talking to me,” he said. “… Once she hooked up with Harry, she changed.”
Thomas Markle has frequently bashed Meghan and Harry in interviews over the past few years. So it’s unlikely that his daughter will relent and allow him to finally meet his grandchildren.
However, life is too short to hold grudges. Especially when it comes to family.
Maybe Meghan Markle will change her mind yet and give her father the chance to be a part of his grandchildren’s lives.
