Thomas Markle has been left furious after reading extracts of explosive new book Finding Freedom, which includes details about Meghan and Harry’s decision to leave the Royal Family and her relationship with her father.
Mr Markle is now planning to enjoy his retirement and is said to be travelling the world to distract himself from the heartbreak.
Meghan’s half-brother Tom Markle Jnr, who speaks to their dad every day, opened up about Thomas’ relationship with Meghan in an interview with The Sun.
He said: “As far as a reunion goes, he’s given up on Meghan and Harry completely.
“He doesn’t trust her and doesn’t want to know that person because of the lies, manipulation and deceit.
“He just had his 76th birthday – needless to say, he didn’t hear from Meghan.”
Tom Jnr, 53, says his dad denies the book’s claims he ignored floods of texts and calls telling him to come to Meghan and Harry’s wedding in 2018.
The couple have tried to distance themselves from the book, and have insisted they did not contribute to it, saying the unofficial biography was based on “independent reporting”.
Speaking about the book’s claims, Mr Tom Jnr said: “It says Harry spoke to our dad to say if he’d listened to him, Harry, there wouldn’t have been any problems.

“The Palace told Meghan and Harry to send help for my father so he could deal with the Press but they refused.
“Meghan herself said no.”
Tom Jnr also claimed the infamous letter Meghan sent their dad includes unrevealed contents he describes as “horrifying” and “very hurtful”.
However, despite reportedly giving up on his daughter, Mr Markle is still desperate to build a relationship with his 14-month-old grandson Archie.
Tom Jnr added: “He will fight and pursue the avenues needed to see Archie.
“They’re not the only ones who can launch a court case.
“He’d love to hold that little boy one time.”
Meghan’s half-brother went on to launch a scathing attack on Prince Harry, claiming he is being “told what to do” by Meghan.
He said Harry has gone “from the British Army and Royal Family to changing diapers at a multi-million dollar property thousands of miles from his family while being told what to say and do by Meghan.”
Thomas Markle Jr added: “Dad wants to die a happy man.
“He’s had enough BS.
“He’s better off enjoying his retirement and travelling – and forget Meghan altogether.”
