How Meghan Markle’s father is recovering from a stroke


Meghan Markle’s father has told a friend that “there is nothing I’m afraid of” after surviving a stroke last year.

The Duchess of Sussex split from Thomas Markle in May 2018 after he was caught staging paparazzi photos for cash days before her wedding to Prince Harry the same month. Her father missed the Windsor Castle ceremony after being admitted to hospital with heart problems and the couple have not spoken since.

The family announced in May 2022 that Thomas had been taken to hospital after a stroke that damaged the speech-producing part of his brain, interfering with his ability to speak.

Karl Larsen, a photographer who created a YouTube channel, “Remarkable Friendship”, with the 79-year-old, said Newsweek that Thomas’ health improved in the months following the stroke.

“I invited (Thomas) to come stay at my place during the hurricane we had here (in California). But he said he was going to be okay,” Larsen said. “He said, ‘After a stroke, I’m not afraid of anything. That’s literally what he told me. He got his voice back but he doesn’t want to be in the limelight right now.”

Newsweek contacted Thomas Markle via email for comment.

Meghan’s half-sister Samantha Markle told GB News in May 2022 after their father’s stroke: “I don’t think he saw it coming, I’m so thankful to God that I had it. called when I did because he was slurring his speech he couldn’t speak and I feel like if we hadn’t gotten emergency care right away it could have been fatal.

“I feel really blessed that he’s got some of his strength back and it’s going to take several, maybe six months, maybe a year to get his speech back,” she said. “He can work with a speech therapist, the stroke he had in the speech production part.”

Thomas Markle was a prolific critic of Harry and Meghan before the stroke and at one point pledged to give an interview every month until his daughter agreed to let him back into her life.

“I apologized for this thing, what happened, at least 100 times,” he said. Hello Brittany in March 2021. “At the end of the day, I’ve never heard from Meghan or Harry in any way. When they say I’m taking advantage of the press, well, basically, what I do, because I haven’t heard of them, I’ll do an article for the press.

“If I don’t hear from them in 30 days, I’ll do another piece for the press. And I haven’t heard from them yet. I’d like to hear from them,” he said. he declares. “When they decide to talk to me, I will stop talking to the press.”
