Meghan Markle and Prince Harry just welcomed their newborn baby to the planet which means it’s prime time for Meghan’s dad to pop up. Thomas Markle’s first comments about Meghan Markle’s baby are surprisingly supportive after an intense history of dragging his daughter in the press, but maybe that’s the effect babies have on people. While one source reported to US Weekly the new grandfather is "devastated" to be left out of the birth, Thomas Markle himself told The Mirror he is "delighted" to hear Meghan and the baby are doing well and he’s "proud" his grandson was born into the royal family. Huh. Elite Daily reached out to Kensington Palace for comments on the report but did not hear back by the time of publication.

Baby Sussex made his debut in the early morning hours of Monday, May 6, 2019. 48 hours later, Meghan and Harry made their first appearance with the new born and spoke to reporters about how wonderful parenting has been so far. Meanwhile, somewhere, Thomas Markle must have been watching all of this from afar. He has an extensive history of speaking poorly about Meghan to the press, and routinely categorized her as neglectful and opportunistic. In one passionate statement, he said she was "ghosting" him.

In one particularly hurtful move, he leaked a private handwritten letter Meghan reportedly sent him asking him to stop speaking to the press and stating his actions were breaking her heart. It has all been very messy, very sad, and very stressful.

Clearly, now that Baby Sussex is here, Meghan’s attention is elsewhere. Still, Markle made his way to the press and to comment on the newborn and made the following statement:

That’s right, Thomas. God save the Queen.

In contrast to Thomas’ supportive comments, a friend of his reportedly told US Weekly he is really hurt to not be included in his grandson’s birth. "He’s as devastated as any grandfather would be who isn’t being given the chance to see his grandchild," the source said.
