In the past, Thomas, 74, has claimed that he no longer has any way to get in contact with his daughter. A few close friends of Meghan's claimed that was not the case.

“He knows how to get in touch with her. Her telephone number hasn’t changed,” a friend told People. “He’s never called; he’s never texted. It’s super painful, because Meg was always so dutiful. I think she will always feel genuinely devastated by what he’s done. And at the same time, because she’s a daughter, she has a lot of sympathy for him.”

Thomas was supposed to walk the Duchess of Sussex down the aisle at the royal wedding. Among many reasons, the father-of-three was not able to attend due to a heart attack.

"Meg heard he had a heart attack and she’s calling and texting, even up to the night before the wedding. It was like, ‘Please pick up. I love you, and I’m scared.’ It was endless," a close friend shared.

Despite his absence from one of the biggest days of her life, Meghan still tried reaching out. “After the wedding she wrote him a letter. She’s like, ‘Dad, I’m so heartbroken. I love you. I have one father. Please stop victimizing me through the media so we can repair our relationship,'" the source said.

"It’s an arrow to the heart. He then wrote her a really long letter in return, and he closes it by requesting a photo op with her," they added.

"And she feels like, ‘That’s the opposite of what I’m saying. I’m telling you I don’t want to communicate through the media, and you’re asking me to communicate through the media. Did you hear anything I said?’ It’s almost like they’re ships passing,” the insider said.

Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, and Thomas were married for less than 10 years and separated when the royal was just 2 years old. Meghan's half-siblings, Samantha Markle — who is known for constantly badgering the Duchess in the media — and her brother Thomas Markle Jr. are from Thomas Sr.'s previous relationship.

Her half-siblings were teenagers when Meghan was born and “not a part of her life,” the friend shared.

“They’ve been made to appear as siblings who were very close and then they had this falling out, and that’s not the truth at all," the longtime friend explained.

“Fast way forward to Meghan dating Harry, and now Samantha is going by the last name Markle after using the last name Grant for most of her life and then she began this career capitalizing on Meg. Everyone who knows Meg knows that the two of them have no relationship," they concluded.
