Meghan Markle faces a 'sad' situation over her estranged relationship with her dad, Thomas, a royal expert has claimed.

It's reported the duchess may be ignoring her dad's pleas to meet because of the risk of him going to the press afterward.

Andrew Morton, who wrote a famous biography about Princess Diana in the 1990s, said that the Duchess of Sussex will not "reach out" any time soon because of her father's track record on speaking to newspapers.

The pair are reported to have had no contact ever since Thomas arranged for paparazzi to photograph him days before his daughter's wedding to Prince Harry in 2018.

After weeks of speculation at the time, he decided not to fly to the royal ceremony in London from his home in Mexico after he suffered a heart attack and needed surgery. He later said that he was never offered an invite.

It is reported that he has never met his grandchildren Archie and Lilibet.

Mr Morton said to Fox News: "When it comes to Meghan, there’s just a complete lack of trust"

"She just doesn’t know that, if she were to reach out, if that will result in Thomas immediately going out and selling the story to tabloids. She can’t risk it. And it’s very sad because the reality is, Thomas isn’t getting any younger. And he has yet to meet his grandchildren."

Mr Morton added that finding a resolution that will make both of them happy may be difficult.

"The damage has been done," he continued. "So where do you go from here? How can you get that trust back, completely? It is a sad story from all sides."

Meghan’s dad told ITV's Good Morning Britain last week that he thought the situation between him and his daughter was “childish”, and that he was desperate to see his grandchildren.

Mr Markle said: "This is way too childish, it’s kind of silly. It’s time to talk to each other, those kids will grow up without knowing they have two families.”
