People in glass houses…

Just hours after reports emerged that she would never see her father again, Meghan Markle has shared a post to Instagram calling for "peace".

Taking to the Sussex Royal page she shares with her husband Prince Harry, the couple uploaded an inspirational quote by Nelson Mandela.

It read: "It is so easy to break down and destroy. The heroes are those who make peace and build."

A source told The Sun that the duchess has "no intention" of introducing son Archie to her father either.

Seriously Meghan??? Make peace and build?? What about your father??? I’m shocked at the timing of this post.

They said: "It’s a terribly sad situation but Meghan has made the very difficult decision that she doesn’t have an active relationship with her father any more."

They added: "This was actually a decision she made some time ago and it is something she’s now coming to terms with."

The reports came after Thomas spoke out at the weekend, asking Harry and Meghan to send him a photograph of his grandson.

After uploading the quote calling for peace, Meghan and Harry's followers were quick to respond.

Another follower commented: "Seriously Meghan??? Make peace and build?? What about your father??? I’m shocked at the timing of this post."

Others did call the couple "inspirational", though, saying that "trolls and haters" wanted to destroy the good work the couple are doing for charity.

The stories come at the start of a big week for the Duchess of Sussex. It was reported that she will this week pay her first visit to the Queen's Balmoral estate with Harry and Archie.
