It's been a tough few days for Meghan after her father Thomas Markle shared extracts from a heartbreaking five-page letter - which was allegedly written by the Duchess of Sussex herself - with the Mail on Sunday, showing the depths of his daughter's grief over their estrangement.
In the interviews, they said Meghan had been so upset by her father's public attacks on her and Harry that she penned the letter begging him to patch up their differences privately.
"I believed you, I trusted you, and told you I loved you".
She remembers how her and her late friend Princess Diana were often portrayed as rivals, adding: "Which is something neither of us ever really felt".
Tabloid newspapers have frequently carried alleged details of her family relationships, and several have also reported on a supposed rift between her and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, in recent months.
His intervention comes amid reports of a rift between Meghan, who is pregnant, and her father, Thomas Markle. You have manufactured such unnecessary and unwarranted pain, but by making the choice not to tell the truth as you are puppeteered in this.
Kensington Palace has not yet responded to CNN's request for comment.
Meghan laughed as a relative of one of the children showed her a photo on her phone, zooming in on the image to get a closer look.
Meghan addressed the letter to "Daddy", before telling him she "does not understand" why he has "chosen to take this path".
"I'm the father of twins, I have enough sh** to deal with-literally!" he said. He knows commentators will say this is "the price she has to pay" and that 'this is all part of the game.' He strongly disagrees.
"Quite frankly I had faith in her on and off to do the right thing by her dad but I'm sick of the bulls-t".
"To hear about the attacks you've made at Harry in [the] press, who was nothing but patient, kind and understanding with you is perhaps the most painful of all", Meghan wrote. "The guards are standing at their posts, and I don't want the guys to be cold".
