Their relationship has steadily deteriorated over the past few months.
But despite everything, Thomas Markle is still determined to save a future with his estranged daughter, Meghan.
According to reports, the 74-year-old has begged the Duchess of Sussex for a final reunion to repair their damaged tire.
"First, he wants to apologize to both of them, for some of the ill-considered things he said and did," a friend told The Express.
"Then he wants to cuddle his daughter and tell her how proud he is of her and how much he loves her.
"He hates the world sees him and some of Meghan's other relatives as" trailer-garbage "folk trying to cash in on her luck," they added.
"But the only thing he really cares about is to let her know how much he loves her and to reopen the door that has been knocked in between them. & # 39;
Mr. Markle's plan for salvation comes after he took advantage of staged paparazzi recordings prior to the royal wedding of the couples.
He then missed the high-profile ceremony and later gave soul-baring interviews to Good Morning Britain.
Now, however, he hopes that the newlyweds will make a private appointment when they visit the west coast of America later this year.
That will follow their first official foreign tour through Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga in October.
While Stateside, the royal couple – who married Windsor Castle earlier this year – also expects friends.
These included Oprah Winfrey and George Clooney, who were famous at their wedding.
They are also expected to spend time with Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, 61, who divorced Markle in 1987.
