thomas Markle: ‘I want Meghan back for Christmas’
With pregnant Meghan spending the festive period with her new family, Thomas is ‘devastated’ at the prospect of Christmas alone
For many, Christmas can be a difficult time – where fractured families endeavour to paper over cracks in their relationships.
But while the Duchess of Sussex will look back on 2018 as a year she’ll never forget – having married her Prince Charming, fallen pregnant and embarked on royal life – the same can’t be said for her father, Thomas Markle.
Meghan, 37, and Thomas have had a strained relationship for some time, but with Christmas around the corner and a grandchild on the way, the 74-year-old has never been more desperate to make amends, telling friends, ‘All I want for Christmas, is my daughter back.’
