Why Duchess Meghan won't let her dad meet Archie
The Sussex family has had enough of Meghan’s fathers’ antics and have decided to cut all ties with him following her dad’s public betrayals.
This is according to insiders who are close to the Sussexes.
One insider told The Sun about Meghan’s heartbreaking decision.
“It’s a terribly sad situation but Meghan has made the very difficult decision that she doesn’t have an active relationship with her father anymore.
“This was actually a decision she made some time ago and it is something she’s now coming to terms with.
“It’s obviously heart-breaking for her but she has to protect herself, her husband and her son.
The news comes after Thomas Markle’s, 75, remarks about the Sussex’s recent adventures on private jets.
“I’ve still never met my son-in-law. Why couldn’t Prince Harry have got on a plane and flown to see me to ask for her hand?
"He obviously has no problem getting on private jets.”
“Everyone raves about how gracious and wonderful they are, but they are not wonderful to their own family.”
An insider confirmed that the royal couple have no intention of letting Thomas meet Archie, his four-month-old grandson.
"Thomas hasn’t met Harry and it’s unlikely he’ll meet Archie either.”
The Sussex family are choosing to rise above the issues but posted a “powerful quote” on their Instagram from Nelson Mandela.
The post reads:
“It is so easy to break down and destroy. The heroes are those who make peace and build.”
