Meghan Markle will be turning her back on her father once her daughter is born which means that he will reportedly not be seeing his grandchild in the flesh.

“He wasn’t much of a dad, so nobody expects him to step up for his grandchild,” an insider told Radar Online. “He’s doing whatever he can to catch a ride on the gravy train!”

Her father, Thomas, has sat down for several high profile interviews since the news of her engagement to Prince Harry, something which the Royal family has frowned upon.

She later banned her father from her wedding after he accepted money for a faked photo spread before her wedding to Prince Harry last year.

“Harry and the rest of the royals see him as nothing more than an opportunist,” a source said to Radar. “And while Meghan is torn, she’s turned her back on her father to save her storybook situation.”
