Meghan Markle’s father can’t stop talking to the press about his famous daughter.
Thomas Markle repeated his usual pleas for contact with the former actress in an interview with The Sun this week. He also added that he has a request for the Duchess of Sussex.
“The other thing is — this will sound a little greedy — but I took care of my mother for the last five years of her life,” he said in the interview published on Monday.
“My daughter said she’d take care of me in my declining years,″ he added. “I’m not talking money; I’m talking about taking care of me. That’s important to me.”
Thomas Markle also said he wants a “father-daughter relationship” with the actress.
“If that means Christmas cards, birthday cards and getting together for the holidays — that is what I want,” he said.
He’s also repeatedly said that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would be better off if he died, because then they could “pretend to be sad.”
Kensington Palace has yet to respond to either Thomas Markle or his other daughter, Samantha Grant, who has also spoken to the media, but sources say that the royals are planning a strategy to soon respond to the two.
