Meghan Markle's father may fly to the UK to repair relations with his daughter as he fears he has been frozen out of her new life, it has been reported.
Thomas Markle has faced a difficult relationship with the royal family since his daughter became engaged to Prince Harry, and did not attend the royal wedding in May.
But the 73-year-old, who lives in Mexico, said he wanted to see the Duchess and said he did not care if she was 'p***ed off' at him.
He said he was considering a trip to England to see Meghan whether or not he is invited by Kensington Palace.
Revealing he had not spoken to Meghan since shortly after the wedding, he said: 'If I chose in a month, or couple of months, to go to England — I want to see my daughter. I’m thinking about it.
'It's sad that it's got to this point. I'm sorry it's come to this.
'Yes, some of it is my fault. But I've already made it clear that I'm paying for this for the rest of my life.'
He also told the newspaper he would like to meet the Queen, saying that if Donald Trump could do so then he could too.
Earlier Mr Markle claimed he was worried for Meghan as she adjusted to life in the royal family and said she had a 'pained smile'.
He told the Sun on Sunday that the Duchess was trying to mask her stress as she attends public events and was 'terrified' of the expectations placed on her shoulders by an 'outdated' and 'asinine' Royal Family.
