The former "Suits" actress recounted in the letter that she and Prince Harry repeatedly reached out to Markle before the wedding, that she personally helped him financially, and that she only learned of his reported heart attack through the tabloids.

"Daddy, it is with a heavy heart that I write this, not understanding why you have chosen to take this path, turning a blind eye to the pain you are causing", Meghan, 37, wrote in August 2018. "I came by there one day, and she had ordered an incredible ice-cream and sorbet stand for the office", the insider revealed. He's never called; he's never texted.

It seems, by releasing the letter, Thomas Markle has not internalised his daughter's pleas. "I begged you to accept help-we sent someone to your home...and instead of speaking to me to accept this or any help, you stopped answering your phone and chose to only speak to tabloids".

In the letter the duchess pleaded with him to stop "lying" to the press writing, "If you love me, as you tell the press you do, please stop".

The duchess added: "I have only ever loved, protected, and defended you, offering whatever financial support I could, worrying about your health".

However, once the wedding was over, a rumoured rift emerged between father and daughter over his absence at the wedding and also his eagerness to talk to the media about his daughter.

Thomas Markle responded to the friends' claims in an interview with The Mail on Sunday and released the five-page letter on Sunday. He told Mail on Sunday that he choose to leak the letter because of what he viewed as his daughter's friends attack against him.

The Duchess also voiced her sadness at her dad in the letter for siding with her half-sister Samantha, who has repeatedly hit out at the Duchess, while she "silently suffered at the hand of her vicious lies".

"Nobody lied about her, she lied about everyone and there's plenty of proof out there in the world has seen her ghost everyone, this little letter does not fix what the world witnessed".

According to The Mirror, Meghan's half-brother Thomas Jnr, 52, is said to express sadness over the broken family ties: "There's no trust between them".

Kensington Palace confirmed Thomas Markle's non-attendance at the wedding via a statement the day before, which left many wondering who would take his place and how his daughter, Meghan, would be feeling.
