VoiceMEGHAN MARKLE is “deeply hurt” by the explosive accusations her father Thomas Markle has made against her, to the point that her welfare has become top of the agenda in Buckingham Palace, with Her Majesty the Queen considering getting involved, sources have claimed.
The retired TV lighting director, 74, gave an interview to the Mail on Sunday, in which he claimed the Duchess of Sussex has shut him out of her life and accused her of having a “sense of superiority”
Meghan Markle so ‘DEEPLY HURT’ by father Thomas Markle the Queen might get involved
It has now been claimed Royal aides are plotting to silence Thomas Markle and that advisers have held at least three top-level crisis meetings on how to stop him distressing his daughter.
A source close to Buckingham Palace 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.“It’s an increasingly desperate ­situation and now it’s come down to three options being on the table.
“Firstly, Meghan could contact her father straight away and appeal to him directly to ask him to stop hurting her, but right now she’s decided to cut him off.
“There is a possibility an ­intermediary could meet with him and appeal to him to stop making such hurtful ­statements.
“The final option would be for Meghan to cut him off completely in the hope he will stop, but the ­situation is so precarious no one knows when that would be.”
Phil Dampier, who has been writing about the Royal family for 26 years also commented on the situation and claimed that “it is getting out of control”.
He added: “If this carries on I wouldn’t be surprised if the Queen herself gets involved and bangs a few heads together.”
In the wake of her estranged father’s explosive rants to the media, Meghan has been reportedly leaning on her sister-in-law Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, who has been a “pillar of support”.

A royal source said about Kate Middleton: “Kate’s well aware of what Meghan is going through.
“Her family has been dragged through the tabloids and she knows it’s not nice. She’s made a big effort to be kind to Meghan and look out for her."
Meghan has had to deal with a number of family dramas since her relationship with Prince Harry.
