It’s fair to say a lot us have had to deal with our dads embarrassing us from time to time, but recently Meghan Markle has experienced this on an international scale.

Meghan’s relationship with her dad Thomas Markle first made headlines when he was unable to attend his daughter’s wedding to Prince Harry earlier this year due to heart surgery. Then followed the paparazzi photos of him ‘preparing for the royal wedding’ that were discovered as fake, with it emerging that the 74-year-old had been in cahoots with the photographers.

Since then, he has spoken to Good Morning Britain, TMZ and Mail Online in a series of increasingly cringe-worthy interviews in which he has openly criticised the royal family and accused Meghan of ignoring him.

Basically - he's pushed it.

But despite all the drama, it looks like Meghan is willing to forgive and forget.

It was reported last month that Harry and Meghan might be planning a trip to visit Thomas Markle, but now it seems that the now Duchess of Sussex is planning a solo visit to the US later this month.

'The possibility of a reunion has been discussed and Meghan looks set to incorporate it into her trip,' a source told The Mirror.

'Thomas is apparently keeping two dates free at the end of the month with a view to travelling from his home in Mexico to LA to meet his daughter. The location and exact dates will be top secret for both their sakes. It is a very sensitive time for them, but the intent seems to be to heal the rift.'

Either way we wish her luck – fingers crossed she can at least stop him from agreeing to any more interviews...
