I tend to believe that Prince Harry’s appearance with Duchess Kate at today’s Anzac Day service means that Meghan won’t be giving birth today. Obviously, she won’t know until she knows, but she was probably like “nah, I’m not feeling it today.” Doria Ragland has been in England for about a week as well, so even if Harry has to spend a few hours away, Meghan still has someone there for her. I feel like Doria is probably really good in any kind of crisis situation or emergency situation too. You know who’s terrible in an emergency? You know who is an agent of chaos just looking to cash in on any kind of emergency? Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle. Toxic Thomas has been suspiciously quiet for a few months now. But he just had to update TMZ on his plans for Meghan’s delivery.
Meghan Markle’s father won’t be around to spoil the joy of her firstborn … because he’s still iced out of the Royal Family. Sources close to Thomas Markle tell TMZ … he’s not traveling to London — or making any plans to do so — despite the fact his daughter is due to give birth to her and Prince Harry’s child any day now. Meghan’s mom, Doria Ragland, arrived this weekend.
We’re told, unlike last year — when health issues kept Thomas from attending the Royal Wedding and giving Meghan away — the reason he’s not visiting his daughter and meeting his new grandchild is because he’s squarely persona non grata. Our sources say Thomas has been unable to make inroads reconciling with Meghan because he believes she’s in a “cone of silence” … but he hopes their relationship can be repaired after she has a baby.
As you’ll recall … Thomas seemed to get shunned by the Royals shortly after the wedding for going to the media, a move perceived by many as self-serving. There’s been a lot of speculation about the father-daughter relationship since then, but it’s clear they haven’t been on speaking terms since August. Regardless, we’re told Thomas, of course, wishes Meghan and Harry the best and hopes for a safe delivery of a healthy baby … and he’s glad Doria’s made the trip to be by her side.
We learned in February that Meghan doesn’t exist in a cone of silence with regards to her father. She wrote him a letter in August of last year where she spelled out the things he needed to do if he ever wanted to see her again or have any kind of relationship. He failed to comply, and instead spent months lying about the existence of the letter. Then Meghan authorized her friends to spill the tea about the letter, after which Thomas sold a copy of the letter to the British tabloids. It was a smart strategy, because now if the British tabloids do any kind of interview with him, they can ask him why he lied about Meghan’s communication to him and more. While the palace courtiers were throwing her to the wolves, Meghan figured out a way to burn her father and effectively silence him. That being said, I’m expecting shenanigans from him and from Scammy Samantha as soon as the baby is here.
