Meghan Markles dad Thomas rushed to hospital in oxygen mask sparking fresh health fears

Megan Markle's father Thomas was reportedly rushed to hospital on Monday 23 May after suffering a stroke.

According to Mail Online, the 77 year old was pictured arriving at a hospital as he wore an oxygen mask to help him breathe.

It's believed that the stroke caused Thomas to struggled to speak.

This isn't the first health scare for Thomas he suffered a heart attack in 2018 ahead of Meghan's wedding to Prince Harry, sparking him to pull out of his daughter's special day.

Thomas' recent hospital dash comes ahead of his plans to come to the UK for the Queen's jubilee next month, where he spoke of wanting to meet Prince Charles.

Chatting to Dan Wootton on GB News, he said: "I really would like to meet with Prince Charles and thank him for walking my daughter down the aisle and just to meet and talk with him."

Thomas shared that he thinks he and Charles have "a lot in common now" and added: "We’ve pretty much both been ghosted by our children."

He continued: “I’d really enjoy talking to him if that’s possible, that would be great.

"I want them to understand that we have no ill feelings about the royals at all. We have nothing but respect and admiration for them. The same feeling goes for all British people.

“I want to thank the British people because they’ve been reaching out to me now and extending their feelings for me and I really appreciate that.”

Dan has since spoken out and said that he's "devastated" that Meghan's estranged father won't be able to make it over to England.

"I am devastated to report this news, just seven days before Thomas would have joined me in London to celebrate the Queen's 70th year on the throne for a TV special on my GB News show, fulfilling his long-held wish to visit Windsor Castle," he said, as per Mail Online.

"But, in a cruel twist of fate, he will now be unable to make the trip as he recovers in hospital, just like he missed his daughter's wedding to the Duke of Sussex after suffering from a heart attack."

Samantha Markle reportedly told him that her father "needed to rest" as she confirmed his hospital admission.

She told Dan, while taking a swipe at her estranged sister Meghan: "My father is recovering in hospital. We ask for privacy for the family, for his health and wellbeing.

"He just needs peace and rest. Godspeed. We are praying. He just needs some rest. It's a travesty how much he's been tortured and how much he's had to go through thanks to my sister's disregard the past few years. That is unforgivable."
