As Meghan Markle’s lawsuit against Associated Newspapers Limited progresses, text messages she and Prince Harry sent to her father have been revealed. As CNN reports, the Duke and the Duchess of Sussex sent several texts to Thomas Markle ahead of their royal wedding.

According to court documents, both Harry and Meghan reached out to Thomas on May 14 not long before news broke that he would not be attending their Windsor ceremony on May 19.

"Tom, Harry again! Really need to speak to u,” the duke wrote his soon-to-be father-in-law. “U do not need to apologize, we understand the circumstances but 'going public' will only make the situation worse. If u love Meg and want to make it right please call me as there are two other options which don't involve u having to speak to the media, who incidentally created this whole situation. So please call me so I can explain. Meg and I are not angry, we just need to speak to u. Thanks."

Harry reached out again to Thomas with another warning about speaking with the media.

"Oh any speaking to the press WILL backfire, trust me Tom. Only we can help u, as we have been trying from day 1,” he added.

However, Thomas did not reply to Harry and instead told TMZ that he’d been in the hospital after experiencing a heart attack. That news led Meghan to reach out to her father on May 15.

"I've been reaching out to you all weekend but you're not taking any of our calls or replying to any texts ... Very concerned about your health and safety and have taken every measure to protect you but not sure what more we can do if you don't respond ... Do you need help? Can we send the security team down again? I'm very sorry to hear you're in the hospital but need you to please get in touch with us ... What hospital are you at?"

Around 10 minutes later the duchess sent another text to Thomas. According to CNN, this time she revealed that she and Harry had appointed a security team for him, “but it was refused.”

In the court documents, Meghan’s lawyers state that on the day of the wedding she missed a call at 4:57 a.m., but had not received any calls or texts from her father moving forward.

As previously reported, Meghan is suing Associated Newspapers Limited, the publisher of the Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday, over the publication of a handwritten letter she sent to Thomas following her wedding. The lawsuit is for breach of copyright, infringement of her privacy and breaches of the Data Protection Act.

According to the article, Meghan had told her father that his actions had "broken my heart into a million pieces," CNN reports. Furthermore, the Mail on Sunday writeup claimed that Thomas contacted the couple “multiple times” in an effort to mend things.

According to the duchess’ reply brief, the publication of parts of the letter invades her expectation of privacy. However, the company maintains that the public had a “huge and legitimate” interest in the royal family and their personal matters.

As previously reported, Meghan and Harry sent a letter out to The Sun, Daily Express, Daily Mirror and Daily Mail on Sunday night. In the letter, the couple promised to never work with those outlets again or allow them access to their events in the future.

A court hearing for the lawsuit will be held on Friday.
