She may appear composed and blissfully happy in public, but behind closed doors sources claim Meghan Markle is extremely upset about her father speaking out about her relationship with Prince Harry.
The 36-year-old former Suits actress, who looked chic and on-trend at Ascot yesterday in a Givenchy dress and Phillip Tracey hat, is said to also be embarrassed by Thomas Markle’s interview with ITV’s Good Morning Britain.
During the interview, Thomas spoke out about the moment Prince Harry asked him for permission to ask Meghan Markle to marry him and also how he was ‘jealous’ of Prince Charles getting to walk his daughter down the aisle.
However, now a royal expert has claimed that this would have infuriated Meghan and her new family.
“Harry and Meghan will undoubtedly be upset by this,” Richard Fitzwilliams told The Express.
“Thomas Markle is reclusive, his health is poor and he obviously feels under strain. It was an emotional interview.”
The Duchess of Sussex’s father famously pulled out of his daughter’s wedding just days before he was due to walk her up the aisle at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

He was admitted to hospital for heart surgery, where he reportedly had three stents placed in his blood vessels after suffering a heart attack.
Meghan’s father-in-law, Prince Charles, stepped in to take over Thomas’ duties and ended up walking Meghan up the aisle.
“I can’t think of a better replacement than someone like Prince Charles,” he told Good Morning Britain.
“He looked very handsome and my daughter looked beautiful with him.”
“I was jealous,” he added.
“I wish I had been there, I wish it had been me but thank god he was there and I thank him for that.”
Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, was the only member of her family in attendance on the day.
