A royal expert has claimed Meghan Markle may regret cutting contact with her father if something happens to him, branding it a ‘dangerous game’.
Robert Jobson, who recently released an unofficial biography on Prince Charlesentitled Charles at Seventy: Thoughts, Hopes and Dreams, urged the pregnant duchess to give into Thomas Markle’s pleas for contact.
Meghan, 37, and her father, 74, have reportedly not spoken since he missed her wedding to Prince Harry in May, after being exposed for setting up a paid photoshoot with paparazzi.
And now Robert has warned Meghan that if anything happened to her father, who has suffered with heart problems and made a tearful plea to his daughter on GMB on Monday, any emotions shown would be branded ‘crocodile tears’.
Speaking to the Express, he claimed: ‘I believe Meghan is playing a dangerous game.
‘When you still have both parents alive, you have no idea what it will be like living without one or both of them.
‘He is not in the best of health and I would urge Meghan to make contact with him and to try and build bridges.
‘Once he is gone, any tears that will flow will be seen as crocodile tears. She will regret not making contact if something happens to him.’
Meghan’s reported silence towards her father follows a string of incidents, including pulling out of walking her down the aisle after he set up staged paparazzi shots earlier this year.
He then continued his campaign by giving an array of interviews, accusing Meghan of being ‘controlling’ while pleading that she get in contact with him.
Meghan has had to endure regular public outbursts from her half sister Samantha Markle, and her father Thomas.
On Monday, Thomas directly appealed on television to Queen Elizabeth to intercede and end his estrangement from his daughter whom he has not seen since he missed her wedding in May to Harry, Elizabeth’s grandson.
Speaking from San Diego, he told Good Morning Britain: ‘I love you very much, you’re my daughter and I would really like to hear from you.
‘Whatever differences we have, we should be able to work them out.’
