Claiming Meghan has no intention of contacting her dad in the near future as she no longer trusts him to keep their relationship private, the source hints Thomas' behaviour had a huge impact on the 37-year-old star growing up. Well apparently by restricting access to Meghan, with the Express's royal reporter Richard Palmer tweeting about how hard it is to get near the Duchess.
Meghan has made her feminist values clear from the offset with she and husband Harry choosing to focus their efforts on charities that empower women.
The public feud has led to the former "Suits" actress leaning on her sister-in-law Duchess Catherine - who was known as Kate Middleton before she married Prince William - for support because she's at her "wits' end" with her father.
"She has not spoken to her father in more than 10 weeks since her wedding and is still hurt by her father, who has both staged the photos and continues to give paid interviews. She's been down that road far too many times before".
'She'd be nothing without me, ' he said.
Meghan reportedly met the Queen for the first time at Balmoral.
In one tweet she snidely wished Meghan a happy birthday and asked that she please send their dad a belated card for his 74 birthday that took place on 18 July.
"'I have had moments in my career where I've caught up with Gwyneth [Paltrow] or Madonna and was like, "Can I dress you for that?" That's the one birthday gift she wanted from her father". "[Meghan] approached me and we worked on other things".
But that all might be about to change, according to her sister Samantha. They are equal, ' she said.
"Family-wise we're all there, so it's a lovely base for Granny and Grandpa to be - for us to come and see them up there where you just have room to breathe and run".
