“But it sounds that her father is making a recovery albeit not enough to travel.

“It would be a good moment for them to make up but it is an impossible situation for her as she might feel he could use any potential meetings to his own advantage.”

It comes after news broke of Thomas’ stroke this week.

Samantha Markle, Meghan’s estranged half-sister, told Dan Wootton for Mail Online: “My father is recovering in hospital.

“We ask for privacy for the family, for his health and wellbeing. He just needs peace and rest. Godspeed. We are praying.

“He just needs some rest. It’s a travesty how much he’s been tortured and how much he’s had to go through thanks to my sister’s disregard the past few years. That is unforgivable.”

Thomas’ health scare comes after he had announced his plans to visit the UK during the Queen‘s Platinum Jubilee.

Her Majesty, 96, will celebrate her 70 years on the throne at the start of June.

“I’m going to make sure the Queen understands that my entire family respects the Queen and the royals.”

He also said he hoped to see Harry and Meghan’s two children – Archie, three, and Lilibet, 18 months.
