We all know that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will visit the United States as a part of their royal duty in 2019. The trip will focus on bilateral and economic ties between the two countries. However, there are reports that Meghan is planning a secret trip to meet her friends and family. The 36-year-old will reportedly visit LA and New York.

The Duchess of Sussex has not visited the US ever since her engagement to Prince Harry. It has been reported that the former actress wishes to see her family and friends before becoming a mother. Now, amidst the rumour, the big question here is will Meghan visit her ailing father Thomas Markle?

Meghan Markle's father is said to be in apparent distress due to his growing distance between the Duchess of Sussex. He hasn't met his daughter and son-in-law Harry ever since their royal wedding in May.

The former lighting director has requested Harry and Meghan to meet him at the earliest. The trouble began after his bombshell interview with the British media followed by criticism against Queen for agreeing to meet Trump. Meghan's sister Samantha even posted a furious rant saying she would hold her responsible if he dies due to this ongoing mental battle.

Markle Sr's lengthy interview with British media took a political turn when he decided to reveal about his conversation with Harry on phone. He said that Harry was willing to experiment with Berxit and give Donald Trump a chance. The British monarch, which is often considered to be apolitical usually stays away from public expression of their views and opinions. Days later, he triggered another controversy with yet another shocking interview. He blasted Queen Elizabeth for agreeing to meet US president Donald Trump despite oppositions.

Will Meghan meet her father is still a question on everyone's mind? Comment your thoughts!
