The new Duke and Duchess of Sussex plan to visit Thomas Markle, 73, as he recovers from heart surgery

The royal newlyweds have been in regular contact with Thomas Markle, 73, after a heart attack stopped him giving away his daughter.

They are now discussing plans for a visit after their honeymoon.

A family source told The Sun: “Meghan and Thomas are both devastated he wasn’t able to attend the wedding and have discussed seeing each other soon.

“They have been speaking all week, mostly by text.

“She has been worried about him and checking how he is regularly.

“Thomas has told other family members he hopes and expects Meghan and Harry to come to see him.”

The former Hollywood lighting director was unable to attend the wedding after having three stents inserted to treat his heart trouble.

He said he watched the wedding on TV from bed in a California hideaway where he is recovering.

Thomas told US celebrity website TMZ: “I will always regret not being able to be there and not being able to hold my daughter’s hand.

“My baby girl is a duchess and I love her so much.

“My baby looks beautiful and she looks very happy.”
