Although Thomas says he would love the opportunity to meet Archie, he also admitted that he has no idea what the future holds for his relationship with Meghan.

TMZ revealed that the "pissed off" father had claimed that neither his daughter nor her husband, Prince Harry, had any right to speak to Queen Elizabeth they way that they had.

TMZ noted that Thomas was responding to Harry and Meghan's statement that the Queen didn't have any ownership of the word "royal" after she banned them from using it in their Sussex Royal brand. Fox News added that the 75-year-old had also said that:

"My daughter dumped me one day before she got married. She dumped my family. She's dumped Doria's family. She's dumped every family. And now she's dumping the British family."

Meghan and her father's relationship has remained tense since the former got hitched to her beau back in May 2018.

Thomas, who had missed the occasion, had suffered a heart attack after he staged paparazzi shoot, which he claimed that he now regrets.

Thomas' outburst came on the heels of his shocking 90-minute documentary that featured never-seen-before photos and videos of Meghan, according to Daily Mail.

During the documentary, the father-of-three revealed that he and his daughter had shared a close relationship before she dumped him for her husband and his supposedly "stiff" royal family.

The documentary, which had been watched by 1.2million people when it aired in January, featured more than a handful of Meghan's throwback pictures that highlighted her milestones.

The images even included one from the day she was born in August 1981 and another of family Christmas parties and summer picnics near their home in California.

ET Online further shared that Thomas's life had turned around when paparazzi began following him around soon after Harry and Meghan started dating.

The torn father explained that the criticism he got from the media about his dress sense, amongst other things, led him into alcoholism.

Due to the reported strain between the father-daughter duo, Thomas has been unable to see his grandchild, Archie.

Although Thomas says he would love the opportunity to meet Archie, he also admitted that he has no idea what the future holds for his relationship with Meghan.
