Meghan Markleâs estranged father, Thomas Markle, was reportedly hospitalized Monday night after believing heâd suffered a stroke.
The retired television lighting director, 77, was photographed being loaded into an ambulance in Tijuana, Mexico, with an oxygen mask strapped across his face, TMZ reported.
According to the outlet, Thomas was rushed across the border to a hospital in Chula Vista, Calif., around 9:30 p.m. local time. He reportedly could not speak to paramedics and had to write down his symptoms on a piece of paper.
âMy father is recovering in [the] hospital,â Thomasâ 57-year-old daughter, Samantha Markle, later told the Daily Mail in a statement.
âWe ask for privacy for the family, for his health and wellbeing. He just needs peace and rest,â she continued.
âItâs a travesty how much heâs been tortured and how much heâs had to go through thanks to my sisterâs disregard the past few years. That is unforgivable.â
Thomas previously made headlines for not attending Meghanâs royal wedding to Prince Harry in 2018 due to issues with his heart.
Meanwhile, Samantha has long blamed the Duchess of Sussex for their fatherâs waning health, once taking issue with Meghan honoring Nelson Mandela while at odds with their dad.
âHow about you pay tribute to your own father?!â Samantha tweeted in 2018. âEnough is enough. Act like a humanitarian, act like a woman. If our father dies, itâs on you, Meg!â
According to multiple outlets, Thomasâ latest health scare means he will not be attending Queen Elizabeth IIâs Platinum Jubilee in London next week, as he had reportedly planned.
