Meghan Markle text her father to reassure him over the photo controversy after trying to call him but failing to get through ahead of the Royal Wedding , according to reports.
TMZ’s Sean Mandell spoke to Good Morning Britain today to reveal more detail about the contact the future royal has had with her father since news of him allegedly dealing with paparazzi photographers and his heart attack broke.
The revelations have thrown plans for the wedding this Saturday into chaos – as Thomas Markle had been expected to walk his daughter down the aisle.
On what contact there has been between Meghan and her father, Sean said: “She has called him, she called him on Monday, after our first story broke.
“We believe that is the timeline of it, that it was afterwards.
“But he did not have his phone on him at the time. She then texted him saying that she loved him, she was concerned for his health, and that she bore him no ill will over the controversy surrounding the staged photos.”
Asked if there was a sense that Thomas would like to get to Britain sooner rather than later, Sean said: “I do get the sense that he does want to be reunited with Meghan, because he told us that he wanted to be there.
"He had a change of heart on Tuesday of this week actually, that after speaking with Meghan over text that he felt that he had prematurely maybe made the decision to pull out of the wedding."
He added: “And he had originally felt it would be better for him not to be at the wedding because it would cause further embarrassment, he thought, for the Royal family, and for Meghan, which is the last thing he wanted.
“But at the end of the day he realised, I’m a father, and I want to be there for my daughter, and I want to be part of history.
“But ultimately his health prevented him from being able to do that.”
Sean said from what he has heard, Meghan is an incredibly strong woman and ‘no stranger to having to deal with hard moments in her life’.
“She has spoken about having to deal with racism in her life," he said.
"She is holding up from what I’m told,"
He added that he understands it has still been trying for her at times.
"From what Thomas has told me there is just love being conveyed there and a gentle approach that happens between them when they speak.
"I have heard as well that in private Meghan was embarrassed and tearful when the controversial photos happened last weekend."
