Thomas Markle said that the number he had for the palace now isn't working and that efforts to speak to the Duchess of Sussex via palace employees have been futile.
Of course, the reason for this is that Meghan's father has been constantly speaking to the press about his daughter's private life and her relationship with Harry, not to mention staging paparazzi photos for money prior to their big day.
Despite caring for her dad - and releasing a statement when he reportedly had a heart attack from stress (which many are now saying he faked) - Meghan now "lives in fear" that if she does speak to him, Thomas will leak their conversation.
"Meghan is so upset over Thomas," a source told Us Weekly. "She’s upset for a couple of reasons. She doesn’t even know how to communicate with her dad without knowing he won’t exploit her. She lives in fear that he’ll leak their communication. If he’s spoken this much already, why wouldn’t he leak their conversation?"
"She would like to speak to him, but there is no trust there anymore. And it doesn’t seem like it could ever be rebuilt. The damage is done," the source continued.
"First, he faked this weird heart attack, which he hasn’t admitted was fake, and now he’s doing all these interviews. She has no other choice but to ignore him."
Thankfully, Meghan's mum, Doria Ragland, has been incredible throughout all the drama. "She’s a very elegant woman and Meghan really turns to her for everything."
