Prince Harry & Meghan Markle's May 2018 Text Messages to Her Dad Released

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s text messages to her father, Thomas Markle, in the days leading up to their May 2018 wedding have been released.

The texts were included in legal documents obtained by TMZ as part of Meghan‘s lawsuit against an English tabloid. The lawsuit was filed in response to the tabloid publishing a private letter that Meghan wrote to her estranged father.

One text message was from Prince Harry and was sent 5 days before the wedding and just two days after Thomas was caught staging paparazzi photos – all after suffering an apparent heart attack.

Tom, it’s Harry and I’m going to call you right now. Please pick up, thank you,” one text read. Another text Harry sent before the wedding read, “Tom, Harry again! Really need to speak to u. U do not need to apologize, we understand the circumstances but ‘going public’ will only make the situation worse. If u love Meg and want to make it right please call me as there are two other options which don’t involve u having to speak to the media, who incidentally created this whole situation. So please call me so I can explain. Meg and I are not angry, we just need to speak to u. Thanks.”

Another text read, “Oh any speaking to the press WILL backfire, trust me Tom. Only we can help u, as we have been trying from day 1.”

After backing out of the wedding amid controversy, Thomas spoke to the press to tell them Meghan had texted him. These texts indicate the couple tried to get him to stop talking to the press, and start talking to them.

In another text, Duchess Meghan wrote to her dad, “I’ve been reaching out to you all weekend but you’re not taking any of our calls or replying to any texts… Very concerned about your health and safety and have taken every measure to protect you but not sure what more we can do if you don’t respond…Do you need help? Can we send the security team down again? I’m very sorry to hear you’re in the hospital but need you to please get in touch with us… What hospital are you at?”

The text continued saying that she and Prince Harry were “dispatching the same security guys you turned away this weekend to be a presence on the ground to make sure you’re safe.”

These texts were all submitted by the Duchess’ legal team.

Since Duchess Meghan‘s wedding, Thomas has spent a lot of time speaking about her in the press and has claimed she ghosted him despite her friend denying this claim.

Thomas Markle Slams Daughter Meghan Markle's Decision with Prince Harry: 'They're Turning It Into a Walmart with a Crown'

Thomas Markle, the father of Meghan Markle, is slamming his daughter and Prince Harry‘s decision to remove themselves from the royal family.

“With Meghan and Harry separating from the royals, it’s disappointing to me because she actually got every girl’s dream,” Thomas said in a clip from a documentary released by the Daily Mail. “Every young girl wanted to become a princess and she got that and now she’s tossing that away … it looks like she’s tossing that away for money.”

“I don’t know what they’re looking for,” he added. “I don’t think they know what they are looking for.”

“When they got married, they took on an obligation, and the obligation is to be part of the royals and to represent the royals. And it would be foolish for them not to. This is, like, one of the greatest, long-living institutions ever. They are destroying it, they’re cheapening it, they’re making it shabby. They’re turning it into a Walmart with a crown on it now. It’s something that’s ridiculous; they shouldn’t be doing this,” he added.

It could be that Thomas Markle and Meghan Markle come face to face soon in a situation that may not be pleasant.

Meghan Markle's Dad Might Testify Against Her in UK Court Case

Last year, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle filed a lawsuit against the Mail on Sunday for allegedly publishing a letter she wrote to her father, Thomas Markle, unlawfully.

Court documents that were filed on Tuesday (January 14) revealed that Thomas is actually part of the Mail on Sunday’s defense, the Daily Mail reports. The Mail on Sunday will argue that the publishing of the letter was lawful as there’s a “huge and legitimate” public interest the royals and their “personal relationships.” Thomas may be called to testify in the case as a result.

According to the documents, they believe Thomas “had a weighty right to tell his version of what had happened between himself and his daughter including the contents of the letter.”

Thomas and Duchess Meghan‘s relationship has been the focus of a ton of speculation after they had a public falling out.

Meghan Markle's Dad Confirms She Wrote Him 5 Page Letter After He Skipped Her Wedding - Read It Here

Duchess Meghan Markle‘s close friends claimed she wrote her dad, Thomas Markle, a personal letter after he skipped her royal wedding to Prince Harry, and her dad is now confirming everything.

Thomas had the five page note published and we have the text.

“Daddy, it is with a heavy heart that I write this, not understanding why you have chosen to take this path, turning a blind eye to the pain you are causing,” the 37-year-old Duchess wrote to her dad in the note published by the Daily Mail. “Your actions have broken my heart into a million pieces — not simply because you have manufactured such unnecessary and unwarranted pain, but by making the choice to not tell the truth as you are puppeteered in this. Something I will never understand.”

“If you love me, as you tell the press you do, please stop. Please allow us to live our lives in peace. Please stop lying, please stop creating so much pain, please stop exploiting my relationship with my husband,” Meghan continued. “I realize you are so far down this rabbit hole that you feel (or may feel) there’s no way out, but if you take a moment to pause I think you’ll see that being able to live with a clear conscience is more valuable than any payment in the world.”

“You’ve told the press that you called me to say you weren’t coming to the wedding — that didn’t happen because you never called,” she continued. “I have only ever loved, protected, and defended you, offering whatever financial support I could, worrying about your health. So the week of the wedding to hear about you having a heart attack through a tabloid was horrifying. I called and texted…I begged you to accept help — we sent someone to your home…and instead of speaking to me to accept this or any help, you stopped answering your phone and chose to only speak to tabloids.”

If you don’t know, Duchess Meghan‘s close friends recently called out Thomas for his behavior, from Thomas staging a fake photo shoot for the media, to him having a heart attack and missing the royal wedding.
