Meghan Markle's father Thomas Markle has been rushed to hospital in Mexico.

It is currently not known what the cause of the Duchesses' estranged father's hospitalisation is.

Meghan has not seen her father in years – but he has given several critical TV interviews about her relationship with Prince Harry.

It is also understood that Thomas has not met his grandchildren, Archie and Lilibet.

The 77-year-old, who is separated from Meghan's mum Doria, was planning on travelling to the UK in the next few days for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations – despite having not spoken to his daughter in years.

Markle has a history of medical issues and was previously unable to attend Meghan and Harry's royal wedding in 2019 due to health problems.

He was due to walk the bride down the aisle, but she instead made the walk along before being joined by her father-in-law Charles for the last few steps.

Speaking recently in an interview with GB News, he had said he was hoping to spend time with the royals, and even singled out Prince Charles for special attention.

He said: "I'm looking forward to it. I'm going to show my respect for the Queen and I'm going to make sure the Queen understands my entire family respects the Queen and the royals and we admire them and we want them to know that is how we feel about them."

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are also flying to the UK for the celebrations, and bringing their children Archie and Lilibet to the delight of royal fans.

The couple are set to attend a service at St Paul's Cathedral, as well as some other minor charity events, though this is not yet confirmed.

The pair, who are now residents of Montecito, California, are also reported to be spending some time with Her Majesty at Windsor Castle in the coming weeks.

The service, on Friday June 3, will be a traditional service of thanksgiving and it is currently planned the Queen will attend.
