Meghan's father, who is a well respected lighting director who worked on TV shows such as Married With Children and General Hospital, was married to Meghan's mother Doria Ragland for nine years until 1988. Thomas leads a quiet life in Mexico, while Doria lives in California working as a yoga instructor and therapist.
When the couple gave an interview after announcing their engagement in November, Harry called Meghan’s mother 'amazing.'
During the engagement interview, Meghan also revealed that her dad and her royal fiancé had yet to meet, but that they had spoken over the phone.
'Everybody was really happy. And he’s talked to my dad a few times, hasn’t been able to meet him just yet, but it’s all been, it’s all been worth every effort,' she said.
In December, Meghan’s half-sister, Samantha Markle, fired back at Prince Harry after he called the royals the family that Meghan’s 'never had.'
'She has a large family. She always did. Our dad is amazing and completely self-sacrificing,' Samantha tweeted in December. 'We made it so that she had two houses. How fun it was!'
