Days before heading to London for the first time for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, the Duchess of Sussex’s father, Thomas Markle, suffered a severe stroke which left him speechless.

He is currently receiving emergency medical treatment at a US hospital.

I am devastated to report this news, just seven days before Thomas will join me in London to celebrate the Queen’s 70th birthday on the throne for a TV special on my GB News show, fulfilling her long-held wish to visit Windsor Castle.

But, in a cruel twist of fate, he will no longer be able to make the trip as he recovers in hospital, just as he missed his daughter’s wedding to the Duke of Sussex after suffering a seizure cardiac.

Days before he was due to fly to London for the first time for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, the Duchess of Sussex's father, Thomas Markle, suffered a severe stroke which left him word.

I have known about the stroke since this morning and had agreed with Thomas and his distraught daughter Samantha not to report the news while he undergoes further tests to establish the severity of the stroke.

But a high-profile US website received information from inside the hospital meaning news of his stroke was about to break.

Samantha Markle told me: “My dad is recovering in hospital. We are asking for family privacy, for his health and well-being. He just needs some peace and rest. Good speed. We Let’s pray. He just needs some rest. It’s a travesty of how much he’s been tortured and how much he’s had to endure because of my sister’s contempt for the past few years. It’s unforgivable.

Family members have been concerned for Thomas in recent weeks as he has come under relentless attack from members of the so-called Sussex Squad of Twitter trolls who had been spreading rumors on the internet following his decision to launch a show on YouTube.

His blood pressure had become concerning before the stroke.

There is fury among the Markle family that Thomas was left behind to fund his own medical treatment.

Despite his continuing health issues, Thomas was determined to travel to the UK for the first time to pay his respects to the Queen.

It was going to be hosted by myself and former I’m A Celebrity star and Royal Society commentator Lady Colin Campbell during the visit, with a series of events planned to pay tribute to the Queen and her legacy. Scottish.

He had intended to visit Windsor Castle for the first time, the place where he was to walk his daughter down the aisle during her nuptials before suffering a heart attack that left him unable to travel.

Thomas also remained hopeful that his presence in London would finally see a reunion between him and his daughter – and a first meeting with his son-in-law, Prince Harry.

But yesterday his daughter Samantha grew increasingly worried when Thomas lost her speech during one of their daily phone calls.

She immediately alerted local friends who were able to take Thomas to Tijuana hospital, where he was photographed wearing an oxygen mask on a stretcher.

His condition was so serious that he was transferred overnight to a hospital across the border in the United States, a few hours drive from his daughter’s mansion in Montecito, Santa Barbara.
