A Buckingham Palace source told The Mirror: "Meghan is deeply hurt by what is happening and everything is being done behind the scenes to make sure her welfare is at the top of the agenda".
Samantha Grant, 53, urged her half-sister Meghan to build bridges with her dad Thomas, whose health she claims has worsened over their apparent rift. Any thanks? She doesn't even speak to me now. The gorgeous piece, which is made out of vegan leather, will be the flawless addition to Meghan's growing roster of bags.
Kate has also offered some royal fashion pointers through London-based designers such as Emilia Wickstead.
"Harry and Meghan have tried ignoring the Markles, but it's not working".
MH370 search: Malaysia to hand down final report into missing airline
The final voice communication from the cockpit came less than an hour after takeoff: "Good night, Malaysian three seven zero". The Kuala Lumpur Air Traffic Control lost contact with the doomed flight at 1:19am Malaysia time.
It comes after retired lighting director Thomas, 74, told the Mail on Sunday he has not spoken to his "beloved Bean" Meghan for more than ten weeks.
They added: "Meghan would love to throw a huge strop and try and put her stamp on the royal family, but with her dad constantly embarrassing her, she knows she has no cards to play and has to shut up and take everything that's thrown at her".
Mr Markle, who has never met his son-in-law but has spoken to Harry on the phone, says the rift is "punishment" for him staging fake paparazzi pictures before the wedding.
They said that drug use was "part and parcel" of working in television where the hours were long.
By now I think we can safely say that Thomas Markle qualifies as a toxic parent because while Markle's mom Doria Ragland, has been regal and classy and hush-hush about her daughter and son-in-law's private lives, Thomas Markle can't stop whining. "I feel that the second you do that is when you start to binge on things", she said. I have no way of contacting my daughter. But if I send a birthday card to Kensington Palace, or wherever she's living now, it'll just be one among thousands.
Yikes! What a royal diss - but she should probably spell Chrissy's name correctly if she expects her to ever see it.
