This time around, he’s not playing. Thomas Markle has announced that he plans on taking his estranged daughter Meghan Markle and her husband Prince Harry to court so he can get access to his two grandchildren, Archie and Lilibet.
Even though the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been living in California for well over a year now, Thomas, who lives just across the border in Mexico, is yet to meet his royal grandchildren. Here’s what you need to know.
Thomas made the announcement to Fox News on Friday morning. He told the site, “I will be petitioning the California courts for the rights to see my grandchildren in the very near future.”

He also said that he doesn’t believe Queen Elizabeth or any other member of the royal family should “punish” Archie or Lilibet and treat them like pawns for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s controversial behavior.
“Archie and Lili are small children. They’re not politics. They’re not pawns. They’re not part of the game,” he said. “And they’re also royal and entitled to the same rights as any other royal.”
In a separate interview, Thomas said he regretted the staged photos that he took prior to Harry and Meghan’s royal wedding in 2018 and says that he’s also frustrated that he’s been ostracized for so many years.
He told ITV’s Good Morning Britain, “I wish I hadn’t done the whole thing but here’s the other side…It’s like no one took any time to protect any member of our family. We were attacked by the press every day – my oldest daughter, my son, myself, my grandchildren — all of us were attacked by the press. Nobody was there to care for us. No one looked after us.”
