The Duchess of Sussex, who is quite busy with her royal duties, has ignored and not commented on any of the statements issued by her father against her and her in-laws. However, reportedly, she is now pretty fed up of the whole drama and wants to distance herself from her father for a while.

A source told The Sun:

“Royal officials have met and discussed how to deal with him complaining that she has cut him off. They know it is a problem. Meghan loves Thomas and does want to maintain a relationship with him in the long run. But at the moment she feels he needs a bit of space.

“She also wants to take a bit of time out. She is adjusting to married life and her new role in the spotlight. Meghan is hopeful that things will get better but it will take time.”

Thomas Markle, 74, is now left with no option than respect his daughters personal space. Thomas also told The Sun,  “I don’t expect to see her or hear back from her and that’s OK. All I was doing was saying things I wanted to say. I now want to go on vacation somewhere and try to get some peace.”

Thomas Markle faced severe criticism after he gave a number of interviews and staged a series of pictures with the paparazzi prior to the Royal Wedding; the pictures raked in £100,000.

This left the Royal Family furious. Thomas did not accompany his daughter on her wedding.
