This week the 74-year-old made news once again, as he leaked a personal letter that Meghan had sent him days after her wedding to the press, in which she begs for him to leave her in peace, something that according to The Mail on Sunday, Thomas called a ‘dagger to the heart’.
The leaking of the Duchess’ private letter is said to have left her ‘heartbroken’, with a source telling US Weekly of Meghan’s sadness.
‘Meghan really hoped Thomas wouldn’t leak the letter,’ a source told US Weekly. ‘She finds it absolutely heartbreaking that her own flesh and blood continues to profit from her.’
‘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’re causing,’ the five-page handwritten letter leaked by Thomas read.
‘Your actions have broken my heart into a million pieces – not simply because you have manufactured such unnecessary and unwarranted pain, but by making the choice to not tell the truth as you are puppeteered in this. Something I will never understand.
‘I have only ever loved, protected, and defended you, offering whatever financial support I could worrying about your health and always asking how I could help,’ she continued. ‘So the week of the wedding to hear about you having a heart attack through a tabloid was horrifying.
‘If you love me, as you tell the press you do, please stop. Please allow us to live our lives in peace. Please stop lying, please stop creating so much pain, please stop exploiting my relationship with my husband. I realise you are so far down this rabbit hole that you feel (or may feel) there’s no way out, but if you take a moment to pause I think you’ll see that being able to live with a clear conscience is more valuable than any payment in the world.’
‘For some reason you continue fabricating these stories, manufacturing this fictitious narrative, and entrenching yourself deeper into this web you’ve spun,’ she concluded her letter. ’The only thing that helps me sleep at night is the faith and knowing that a lie can’t live forever. I believed you, I trusted you, and told you I loved you.’
This is heartbreaking.
