Thomas Markle, who reportedly has not spoken to his daughter, Meghan Markle, or Prince Harry in over six years, could become a primary subject in the rebel Duke's Spare sequel.

"Before the engagement, it has never been explained why Harry has never met Thomas Markle," royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams dished. "That is something that perhaps will be explained in a future memoir, but this is all very sad business."

Thomas and Meghan Markle allegedly have not spoken since shortly before her wedding on May 19, 2018.

"It's not going to be resolved," he added. "The fact that Thomas is appealing to King Charles and so forth is not going to mean anything happens, I’m afraid. As far as the wider royal drift is concerned, the royal family have other priorities at the moment, putting it mildly."

Shortly after the release of Spare in January 2023, Prince Harry said he had enough content left over for more tell-all books, and it seems he could be ready to spill all again. The news has some major royal analysts concerned and surprised with the new reports.

As the former lighting director approaches his 80th birthday on July 18, the outspoken retired technician offered a bleak outlook on the rift that has "engulfed his life."

"Thomas Markle told the Mail on Sunday that his life has been overshadowed by 'what has happened in the last six years.'" Fitzwilliams continued.

Thomas Markle said he has not spoken to Prince Archie or Princess Lilibet Diana.

"He admitted he struggles to understand why he has never met his son-in-law," the commentator explained.

"When I reflect back on my life, as you do when you are approaching 80, that’s one of the questions I cannot find an answer for," Thomas told the outlet.

"Why didn't Harry ever come to meet me?" he asked. "He has the resources to fly around the world — and does — but why didn’t he come to see me, particularly when people in the royal household like Jason Knauf [Harry and Meghan’s former communications secretary] were urging him to do so? That has never made sense to me."

King Charles has 'theoretical rights of custody' over all of his grandchildren, including Archie and Lilibet.

The former Married... with Children crew member also revealed he would like to speak with King Charles III, who shares some similarities with Thomas as Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet's paternal grandfather.

The lighting director for the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles then pointedly revealed: "I'm not afraid of dying. It is what it is. I have so many questions I’d like to ask Meghan and Harry."

Thomas concluded: "The main one being, why have they treated not only me but the royal family and the King so badly."

The Duke of Sussex is already in the royal doghouse and "likely permanently banned from royal life in their [senior royals and courtiers] eyes," a palace insider revealed. "If he does follow through with writing yet another salacious book, that ban will extend to a personal bar from his family, meaning he won't just be excluded from royal events; he will be ignored as if he never existed."
