Meghan Markle’s dad Thomas has made the shocking claim that her life would be easier if he was to die.
Discussing his health after a heart attack stopped him from being able to attend his daughter’s wedding, he told The Mail on Sunday: “It’s lucky I’m still alive.
“The men in my family rarely live over 80 so I’d be surprised if I had another ten years. I could die tomorrow.”
He then added: “It wouldn’t be so bad. I have something of a Buddhist philosophy about death. Perhaps it would be easier for Meghan if I died.
“Everybody would be filled for sympathy for her. But I hope we reconcile. I’d hate to die without speaking to Meghan again.”
Meghan’s 74 year old father recently said his daughter seemed “terrified” of royal duties.

“My thing about my daughter right now is that I think she is terrified,” he told The Sun. “I see it in her eyes, I see it in her face and I see it in her smile. I’ve seen her smile for years. I know her smile. I don’t like the one I’m seeing now.”
Comments of his death come from the same interview in which he claims that Meghan is ignoring him and has even changed her phone numbers.
Thomas said: “I’m really hurt that she’s cut me off completely. I used to have a phone number and a text number for her personal aides at the Palace, but after I said a few critical words about the Royal Family changing Meghan, they cut me off.
“Those numbers were disconnected, they no longer work. I have no way of contacting my daughter.”
‘It’s her birthday on August 4 and I want to send her a card. But if I send a birthday card to Kensington Palace, or wherever she’s living now, it’ll just be one among thousands. She’ll probably never see it.
“I thought about sending it by Priority Mail Express, but the Palace would probably just soak it in water for three days to make sure it doesn’t explode.”
