Meghan Markle’s mum Doria Ragland is ‘moving to the UK’

Hannah Rogers | 13 August, 2018, 19:55

A royal aide told the Mail Online it is "probably too late" to get Mr Markle back on board unless Meghan herself "turned up on her father's doorstep - and even that might not work now".

A fresh wave of tabloid interviews from Markle over the weekend looks like proof this plan has gone nowhere.

"I felt like I was being blamed for my mistakes when I was in my hospital bed recovering from a heart attack", Thomas Sr tells The Sun.

It also emerged that he had staged photos with a paparazzi photographer which contributed to the furor around him ahead of the wedding.

Meghan Markle's father says Prince Harry hung up on him.

"We can just have so much fun together, and yet, I'll still find so much solace in her support", she wrote.

Thomas also claims Harry had warned him about the paparazzi in the past.

Instead of taking Harry's advice, Mr Markle made a secret arrangement to pose for a series of pictures - a decision he now bitterly regrets.

Harry called Mr Markle to ask if he had co-operated for shots which showed him, among other things, supposedly being fitted for a wedding suit.

Former lighting director Mr Markle, 74, said he did not expect to "see her or hear back from her", adding: "That's OK".

As the only immediate family member on Markle's side to have attended the May wedding, friends of the family say Ragland has "fell in love with England" and "hopes to move over as soon as next month".

The Express has claimed Doria is set to make her home in London, close to where the royal couple live in the grounds of Kensington Palace. "I would be encouraging her to say to him, 'Daddy, you are part of the family, come and meet everyone and we will put something in place for you'".

Mr Markle said he told Harry: 'Maybe it would be better for you guys if I was dead... then you could pretend to be sad'.

In hindsight, he admits Harry was "absolutely right" to criticise him.

"I also think the Palace should have invited the whole Markle family; they wouldn't all have come and it would made them feel included and less likely to make the negative comments they have been making". The trouble stemmed from well before the wedding when there must have been an opportunity for Harry and Meghan to pay a private visit to her father.
