The 36-year-old Meghan Markle’s estranged father has developed a penchant for speaking to press about his daughter and the royal family.
The Duchess of Sussex has not spoken to her father Thomas Markle in over two months and it seems that their relationship has gone beyond the point of repair.
The 36-year-old Meghan Markle’s estranged father has developed a penchant for speaking to the press about his daughter and the royal family, and Us Weekly reports that she's now terrified to talk to him out of fear that he'll leak their conversation to the media.
According to a source, Meghan doesn’t even know how to communicate with her dad without knowing he won’t exploit her.
“She lives in fear that he’ll leak their communication. If he’s spoken this much already, why wouldn’t he leak their conversation?” the source added.
Meghan was close to her father while growing up in Los Angeles, but their relationship was tested by his series of embarrassing incidents in the months leading up to her royal wedding.
The Duchess of Sussex's half-sister Samantha Markle has also been eager to take aim at Meghan in the press, most recently tweeting that if their father dies, it will be her fault.
However, the source told Us Weekly that Meghan isn't concerned about Samantha because she has seen or really spoke to her half-sister since she was a child.
