"I would challenge her to take a lie detector test anywhere on the planet with investigators that are not paid by her to skew the results". On a daily basis you fixated and clicked on the lies they were writing about me, especially those manufactured by your other daughter, who I barely know, ' the letter read.

Thomas Markle, whose said in a number of interviews he's had no contact with Markle since she became a royal, told The Mail the letter was "a dagger to the heart". Please allow us to live our lives in peace.

Meghan Markle's father released a letter he received from the Duchess of Sussex a few months after the royal wedding, confirming the accounts of a number of Markle's close friends, who told People magazine Prince Harry's wife had indeed attempted to contact her estranged father after he failed to show up at her wedding previous year. He also responded to the letter with his own note. "I can't force you", he reportedly wrote. "Please stop lying, please stop creating so much pain, please stop exploiting my relationship with my husband". I'm telling you I don't want to communicate through the media, and you're asking me to communicate through the media.

"To me this is the ultimate betrayal, and what a tragedy", she said.

This is the same month that Meghan is due to give birth to her first child. I called and texted ...

Thomas Markle recently sold parts of that letter to Mail on Sunday.

Her handwritten letter seems to have only deepened the dispute between father and daughter.

"You've said I never helped you financially and you've never asked me for help which is also untrue; you sent me an email last October that said: "If I've depended too much on you for financial help then I'm sorry but please if you could help me more not as a bargaining chip for my loyalty", Meghan reminded her father in another excerpt".

She also accused her father of not reaching out to her after the wedding, and not letting her know that he wasn't attending. He said, "The letter was presented in a way that vilified me and wasn't true".

Meghan has taken the high road for now, declining to comment on the goings-on of the Markle clan and instead turning her attention to her growing family. However, Kensington Palace has not addressed the letter, and a royal insider says that the duchess has no plans to comment, fearing it could escalate an already hard situation. "It's wrong to put anyone under this level of emotional trauma, let alone when they're pregnant".
