After Meghan Markle’s friends revealed last week that she’d written a letter to her father, Thomas Markle, after her wedding to Prince Harry last year, Thomas shared exactly what that note entailed.

“Daddy, it is with a heavy heart that I write this, not understanding why you have chosen to take this path, turning a blind eye to the pain you are causing,” Meghan’s letter to her dad began, according to the Daily Mail.

Along with giving the letter to the outlet, Thomas also told them that he received it in August 2018, a few months after Meghan’s May royal wedding. He didn’t plan on making it public, but after the “Suits” alum’s friends spoke to People about it, he wanted to share the full story. Thomas revealed to Daily Mail not just the contents of Meghan’s letter, but also that of the one he sent her in return.

The Duchess of Sussex wrote to him about how much pain he’s causing her with all of his media interviews and how much pain he caused her in the past by not picking up her calls.

“Your actions have broken my heart into a million pieces — not simply because you have manufactured such unnecessary and unwarranted pain, but by making the choice to not tell the truth as you are puppeteered in this,” she said.

Meghan continued: “You’ve told the press that you called me to say you weren’t coming to the wedding — that didn’t happen because you never called.

“So the week of the wedding to hear about you having a heart attack through a tabloid was horrifying. I called and texted…I begged you to accept help — we sent someone to your home…and instead of speaking to me to accept this or any help, you stopped answering your phone and chose to only speak to tabloids.”

She also explained it’s “untrue” she’s never helped him financially when she’s actually done so much for him. The pregnant royal begged her dad to stop with all of the publicity and all of the media conversations about her.

“Please allow us to live our lives in peace. Please stop lying, please stop creating so much pain, please stop exploiting my relationship with my husband,” she wrote. “…I realize you are so far down this rabbit hole that you feel (or may feel) there’s no way out, but if you take a moment to pause I think you’ll see that being able to live with a clear conscience is more valuable than any payment in the world.”

In his response to his daughter, Thomas wrote, “You can hate me if you want. I can’t force you. I made a big mistake…I’m human and I’m sorry! How much longer must I say it?? I wish we could get together and take a photo for the whole world to see. If you and Harry don’t like it? Fake it for one photo.”

This part of his letter’s seemingly what Meghan’s friend was referring to in the interview with People, when the friend said, “He writes her a really long letter in return, and he closes it by requesting a photo op with her. And she feels like, ‘That’s the opposite of what I’m saying. I’m telling you I don’t want to communicate through the media, and you’re asking me to communicate through the media. Did you hear anything I said?’ It’s almost like they’re ships passing.”

Aside from dealing with the drama with her father, Meghan’s currently getting ready for the birth of her first baby, as well as the move into her new home, the Frogmore Cottage, with her husband, Prince Harry.
