Samantha Markle, 53, denied reports the former Suits actress is attempting to re-kindle her relationship with Thomas Markle Snr, 74, in the wake of her 37th birthday on Saturday.

Samantha told The Sun: “I speak to him every day and it’s sad but, no, they have not contacted him.

“There is no meeting planned, that is PR spin.

“The PR machines can stop trying to make out she’s making an effort — she is not.”

She added: “This is a heartbreaking time for him and I’m very sad watching my sister ignore him.”
