Royal heartbreak: Meghan and Harry's 'relief' as dad Thomas may 'fade away' with partner

Meghan’s dad has been dating his new American lover who is a mum-of-two and lives near his Rosarito neighbourhood in Mexico. An insider told the Sun: “Part of the problem with Thomas is that he has so much time on his hands.

“He has a lot of time to stew, to think and to get angry. Again and again that has led to him speaking out and giving interviews which have caused a lot of upset, particularly for Meghan.

“She hopes now he’s got someone else in his life he will fade away and not bother her. He’s caused enough problems already.”

Sources close to Meghan and Harry say the couple hope this news will finally put an end to his continuous interventions and constant criticisms of the way the pair live their life.

The relief has come just a day after Thomas Markle lashed at the Sussexes, stating his daughter and son-in-law had “insulted” the Queen over the recent Megxit drama.

Thomas spoke to TMZ near his home in Mexico, claiming: “I’m very upset with Harry and Meghan right now.

“[They] don’t have a right to speak to the Queen the way they’ve spoken to her. I think it’s an insult to the Queen and the British people.”

Earlier this week, the 75-year-old, warned Harry and Meghan that he would keep cashing in on interviews.

He argues his daughter has dragged him into the situation and now he needs to support himself.

But the couple is now looking forward to a “fresh start” amid the news Thomas has a girlfriend.

It was revealed this week that Thomas had bought flowers for his new lover on Valentine’s Day.

A source told the Sun: “Meghan and Harry are looking forward to a fresh start and hope that Thomas will give them the opportunity to do that without him interfering or causing any more distress.

“But they know only time will tell. And they are mindful whoever this new girlfriend is could also talk if Thomas decides to pour his heart out to her.

“The danger of Thomas making their lives difficult is never far away.”

The source also stated that Doria Ragland, Meghan’s mum and Thomas’ ex, would be “delighted” he had found someone new.

Thomas recently claimed he was willing to appear in court as a witness in the legal battle over a letter Meghan wrote to him detailing her heartbreak at their rife.

He further vowed that if he were to face his daughter in court then “everything will come out”.

But locals have claimed that Thomas is busy with his new girlfriend as they have been seen on cosy dates.

A neighbour claimed: “Thomas has been seeing a woman locally for the past few weeks, and they’re regularly making trips back to the States as she has family there.

“He’s staying with her for a few nights while he’s been getting the plumbing at his place fixed.

“Tom’s a really nice, low-key guy and hasn’t been making a song and dance of things. But he has definitely had a spring in his step.

“A few of us have also been joking that Meghan has a new step-mum!”

Thomas estranged from Meghan Markle after several public fall-outs and is said to have got himself a part-time job at a local film studio.
