Meghan Markle is torn between her loyalties to the royal family and her father.

According to an insider, Meghan hasn’t spoken to Thomas Markle Sr since the day after the royal wedding, and is struggling to maintain a relationship with him since he continually gives unauthorised interviews leaving the royal family “frustrated”.

“Thomas is walking a fine line,” a source told Us Weekly. “This blabbing needs to stop if he wants to maintain any relationship with Harry and Meghan.

The Duchess of Sussex’s silence has left Mr Markle ‘begging’ for his daughter to give him another chance, the insider said.

“Thomas adores his daughter and swears he never wanted attention from the interviews. All he’s ever cared about is protecting Meghan.

“He wants the royals to stand by his side, but of course so far they haven’t.”

The 73-year-old might want to stop giving unauthorized interviews, because, as the source said “This will definitely have an effect on whether Harry meets Thomas.”

Mr Markle was unable to walk his daughter down the aisle at the royal wedding, and is yet to meet her husband, Prince Harry.
