This isn’t the first health scare Thomas Markle has experienced. He previously suffered two heart attacks which caused him to miss his daughters 2018 Royal Wedding to Prince Harry, 37. Meghan Markle, 40, and her father have been estranged ever since he was caught allegedly staging paparazzi photos of himself just before the Sussexes exchanged wedding vows in London.

In March 2021, Thomas Markle opened up about the last time he spoke to Prince Harry.

“The last time we spoke — actually, we didn’t speak, we actually texted each other — I was laying in a hospital bed after having a heart attack. I had to tell them that I couldn’t come to the wedding [in May 2018]. At that point, we had pretty much said goodbye.”

Thomas Markle’s stroke comes days before he was set to to fly to London for the first time for Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee Celebrations.

Thomas’s other daughter Samantha Markle spoke out on her father’s current health status, seemingly blaming her estranged sister Meghan Markle.

“My father is recovering in hospital. We ask for privacy for the family, for his health and wellbeing. He just needs peace and rest. Godspeed. We are praying. He just needs some rest. It’s a travesty how much he’s been tortured and how much he’s had to go through thanks to my sister’s disregard the past few years. That is unforgivable.”
