According to reports, Thomas, 77, suffered a stroke and was receiving urgent treatment in hospital.

His health scare comes just days before he was planning to fly to London for the Queen‘s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

Appearing on GB News yesterday (May 25), Samantha claimed Meghan has not been in touch with her family.

None of us have heard from Meghan – that’s negligence.

Speaking to host Dan Wooton, she explained: “He’s been through so much. Two heart attacks, a pandemic and now a stroke.

“None of us have heard from Meghan – that’s negligence.

“If she can’t find it in her heart or have the moral conscience to step forward then shame on her. He doesn’t have a lot of time. She’s going to have to live with that for the rest of her life.”

Meghan ‘hasn’t contacted’ father Thomas

In addition, Samantha said: “She sees all of this. I’m getting the feeling that I would be spinning my wheels to try and appeal to her heart now.

“She could have contacted him to work things out at any time and she hasn’t. How can she watch him suffer like this? Who does that?”

Samantha – along with brother Thomas Markle Jr – has supported her father throughout his recent health scare.

“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.
