"If Thomas continues to publicly speak out against his daughter without any remorse or understanding of how his actions may have hurt her, then it’s unlikely their relationship will be repaired."
"And I did everything I could to protect both of them in that media frenzy," she said. "But for over a year, the U.K. tabloids were trying to find my dad, offering people so much money to try to find his address."

Thomas even revealed he didn't recognize the Duchess of Sussex's behavior.
“There’s no excuse for treating me this way, no excuse to treat grandparents that way,” he continued. “Meghan lived with me from sixth grade to high school, and I never saw anything like that. I never saw the kind of woman she turned into. I am shocked. She is not the person I knew as my daughter.”

"Put the past behind us, let me see my grandkids," he begged. "In the state of California, I can actually sue to see them, but I don't want to do that. The other thing is that I’ve done nothing wrong. There is no excuse for her to treat me this way, no excuse to treat the King that way as well. It’s no excuse to treat grandparents that way."
Alderson spoke to the The Mirror.
