(Video) Meghan Markle's Dad Calls Her "Controlling" in new Interview


Meghan Markle has "ghosted" her father, according to Thomas Markle himself.
Appearing via satellite in San Diego, Calif., her 74-year-old father got up at an ungodly hour to make a public plea on ITV's Good Morning Britain in the hopes she will end their estrangement.
Speaking to Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid, Thomas acknowledged nothing has changed between him and Meghan since he last spoke to them a month after the royal wedding. "I'm disappointed by it. I'm not sure why it's happening. I've been trying to reach out for several weeks," Thomas told the co-hosts. "Every day I text her, but I haven't received anything back."
Thomas, who said he's also sent letters to Meghan, added he still has not met Prince Harry, either. He also said he hasn't received a holiday card from the couple. "I would appreciate a card or a phone call, or just some sign that she knows I'm here," he said. "She knows I love her."
Should Meghan watch the heavily publicized 18-minute interview on Good Morning Britain, Thomas wanted to send her a message. Looking directly into the camera, he said, "I love you very much. You're my daughter and I'd really like to hear from you. Whatever differences we have, we should be able to work them out. We're family. So, please reach out to me." Thomas added he wouldn't mind Queen Elizabeth II acting as a mediator, either. "I would appreciate anything she can do, and I would think she would want to resolve the family problems," he argued. "All families, royal or otherwise, are the same and should be together at the holidays."
Piers argued that since Meghan became engaged to Harry in late 2017, she has "jettisoned people who are no longer important to her." That didn't sit well with Thomas, who defended her reputation. "That's really not a character trait of hers. She's always been very polite and a very good, and uh, uh, uh...She's always been very polite to everyone. She's never been rude to anyone. I don't really know what's happening right now. I know we had differences at the beginning, some question about my heart attack and so forth. The unfortunate thing about my daughter and Harry is that they believe what they read in the papers. For the first year, they were telling me, 'Never believe those things.' But now they [think] I'm saying things I'm not saying," he said. "I think that might be one of the problems, but...I don't have the answer yet."
