Why Thomas Markle Hasn’t Given Up Hope for a Reconciliation With Meghan Markle

As far as statements go it was definitively benign. Even more so when you consider it came from Thomas Markle. 

When Meghan Markle's father sent his official congratulations on the May 6 arrival of her first child with husband Prince Harry, his sixth grandkid, his words were entirely devoid of the snark and shade he's often employed while speaking about the royal family. 

"I'm delighted to hear that mother and child are doing well," he told The Sun in a statement. 

"I am proud that my new grandson is born into the British royal family and I am sure that he will grow up to serve the crown and the people of Britain with grace, dignity, and honor.

His final remarks on the subject: "God bless the child, and I wish him health and happiness, and my congratulations to my lovely daughter Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry, and God save the Queen."

Referring to the monarch as a "dusty old crown" this was not. 

Having tried lashing out and along with straight up begging his daughter, 37, to heal the rift that has been steadily growing between them since he missed her May 2018 vows, the 74-year-old former lighting director is throwing out a Hail Mary: playing nice. 

Because for as many insults as he flung his little girl's way since she, as he claims, ghosted him after his initial interviews with the press, he never imagined he wouldn't be privy to this pivotal moment. 

"We've talked about this quite a bit over the past few weeks and this is actually a really scary subject for him," Thomas Markle, Jr. shared with The Sun of his father's slow realization that he may not get the chance to hold court with one Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. "If he were to think he'd never be a part of the baby's life that would be horrible for him, it would really hurt his feelings a lot. It's one of his biggest fears and he can't understand it if it goes that way. He's hoping for her to open up her arms and unite and obviously he wants to be part of the baby's life."
