Thomas Markle has contacted the Archbishop of Canterbury in a bid for help healing his rift with Meghan and is allegedly considering a legal fight for access to his future grandchild.
The Mexico-based former lighting technician has reportedly renewed his appeals to Kensington Palace and wants to fly out to London to meet his daughter after she returns from the royal trip to the South Pacific.
The 74-year-old, who could not attend May’s royal wedding due to heart palpitations, is also said to be asserting his ‘rights’ to see the future grandchild.
‘Thomas says the Markle blood will be as much in the child’s veins as the “blue blood” of the royals and he has “rights”,’ a source told The Mirror. ‘He admits mistakes but with Meghan pregnant, he is desperate to heal the rift.
‘Thomas has reached out to Kensington Palace more so since news of Meghan’s pregnancy broke, hoping the baby will be what finally breaks their estrangement.’
Mr Markle has not spoken to his daughter since May and reportedly heard she was pregnant on the car radio. He hopes the child will be called Thomas if he is a boy, it is claimed.
