Days before he was due to travel to London for the first time to mark the Queen’s platinum jubilee, the father of the Duchess of Sussex, Thomas Markle, suffered a severe stroke that led him to lose his speech.

He is currently receiving urgent medical treatment in an American hospital.

I am shocked to report this news, just seven days before Thomas joined me in London to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Queen’s accession to the throne to attend a television special on my JB news programme, and fulfill his long-standing wish to visit Windsor Castle.

But, in a cruel twist of fate, he will now not be able to make the trip while recovering in hospital, just as he missed his daughter’s wedding to the Duke of Sussex after suffering a heart attack.

I have been aware of the stroke since this morning and have agreed with both Thomas and his distraught daughter Samantha not to report the news while he undergoes further tests to determine the severity of the stroke.

But a high-ranking American website received information from inside the hospital, which means that the news of his stroke was on the verge of collapse.

Samantha Markle told me: ‘My dad is recovering in hospital. We demand family privacy, for his health and wellness. He just needs peace and comfort. Good luck. We pray. He just needs some rest. It’s a farce how much torture he’s been through and how much he’s faced thanks to my sister’s disregard for the past few years. This is unforgivable.
