Samantha Grant claims the royal family has adopted a “code of silence” towards her father and she begged Meghan, believed to be heading to her native US for an unofficial visit next month, to get in touch.
The 53-year-old told the Sunday Mirror there has been a marked decline in Thomas’s health since the row over staged paparazzi shots in the run-up to Harry and Meghan’s wedding in May.
“I’m desperate for Meghan to meet up with Dad when she’s back. If she doesn’t it would be really cruel and hurtful and would break his heart. “He’s very sensitive and I see his health suffering as a result of this. I hope they can meet in a quiet place, spend some quality time together and gain closure on what’s been an incredibly sad time for him. “If they don’t I’m worried he’ll die of sadness. I just want her to get in touch before it’s too late. Life’s short – neither of them deserves to be left with the consequences.”
Samantha claims Meghan, her half-sister, has not spoken to Thomas since he publicly talked about her and Prince Harry in a British TV interview and that she has also cut ties with Samantha and half-brother Thomas Jr, 51.
Samantha said her 74-year-old dad was thinking of traveling to the UK from his home in Rosita, Mexico, in a bid to see Meghan.
Meghan is thought to be heading to the US to see friends and family after celebrating her 37th birthday on Saturday.
