Speaking to Australian morning programme Sunrise, the American said:"I'm hoping that she will resolve things with our father, because it's only called for. That needs to be repaired."

Meghan has not spoken to Thomas since before her marriage to the Prince in May 2018 – with the 71-year-old today revealing he still had not met baby Archie after it was revealed Meghan was pregnant again.

He most recently said he would be willing to give evidence against his daughter after she launched – and won – a High Court privacy case after a British newspaper reprinted extracts a letter she sent him.

Thomas had passed her handwritten letter to The Mail on Sunday after it was claimed her pals referred to the correspondence in People magazine.

Meghan won the case without the need for a trial.

And Samantha today called on the 39-year-old to reach out to her family, saying: "I think the burden is on her – she's the one that isolated the entire family, and she's ignored my father since his heart attack.

"It's only humane to make that right, and no one can do that but her."

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex this week announced they were expecting their second child together with son Archie to become a big brother.

But when asked if she had known that Meghan was pregnant, Samantha replied: "of course not, we haven't heard from her."

Samantha Markle appeared on the Aussie show to promote her new book, The Diary Of Princess Pushy's Sister Part 1, which she insisted was not a tell-all about her famous sister but instead "more of a sociological journey".

She added: "There is nothing shocking or disparaging in the book."

Meghan and Harry are now expected to appear with Oprah in a tell-all interview to be aired next month.

CBS said in a statement: "Winfrey will speak with Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, in a wide-ranging interview, covering everything from stepping into life as a Royal, marriage, motherhood, philanthropic work to how she is handling life under intense public pressure.

"Later, the two are joined by Prince Harry as they speak about their move to the US and their future hopes and dreams for their expanding family."

The primetime special, titled Oprah with Meghan and Harry, will be broadcast on March 7 – with ITV reporting that the deal was signed over the weekend.

In the wake of the announcement, one royal insider has said there is "a great deal of nervousness" at the Palace.

One royal source told the Mirror: "One only has to look at the previous instalments of the tell-all interview to know these things never end up with a wholly positive experience for any party.

"Everyone will be watching with intense interest."

It could mean Meghan and Harry now have "no way back to official royal duties", royal sources claim.
