Meghan Markle’s father Thomas to petition court to be part of his grandkids’ lives

Thomas Markle, father of Meghan Markle, could take the former actor to court over his right to see his grandchildren. 

While chatting with Fox News, the Duchess of Sussex’s father touched upon his strained ties with his daughter and her husband Prince Harry, because of which he hasn’t gotten a chance to know his grandchildren, Archie and Lilibet.

"We shouldn’t be punishing [Lili] for Meghan and Harry’s bad behavior,” he said.

"Archie and Lili are small children. They're not politics. They're not pawns. They're not part of the game. And they're also royal and entitled to the same rights as any other royal,” said Markle.

"… I will be petitioning the California courts for the rights to see my grandchildren in the very near future," the 77-year-old said.

Markle also lambasted his son-in-law Prince Harry for penning a memoir, saying: "Harry doesn’t have too much more to tell. After three sessions with the psychiatrists and Oprah Winfrey, I don’t know what more is there to tell."
