He added: I’m sorry. You know I can’t talk.”

The 73-year-old has been silent since the news of his daughter’s engagement with Prince Harry – his ex-wife Doria Ragland has also kept quiet.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will marry at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle – the smitten couple will supposedly cement their love for each other on May 26.

Mr Markle’s son, Tom Jnr, previously stated that since the news of the royal wedding, the 73-year-old has become a “total recluse”.

He declared: “Dad never liked the limelight, but since the news came out about Meghan and Harry he’s become a total recluse.

“I haven’t seen him in years.

“He hates the attention Meghan’s romance has brought on to him.

“He loves her but hates the idea of being in the spotlight.

“Dad loves Meghan more than anything.

“Meghan has always been her Daddy’s princess and he will be there when she marries her real-life prince.”

Thomas was declared bankrupt in September 2016, with £24,000 debts.

Mr Markle moved from his home in Los Angeles to move to Mexico – he has apparently stabilised himself since the change.

A neighbour of Thomas claimed: “Tom’s had it tough but never once have we heard him complain. He has just got on with his life.

“Life’s certainly on the up for him and he is over the moon for his daughter.”
