Prince Harry and Meghan Markel meet wellwishers as they visit Reprezent 107.3FM on January 9, in London. The public has warmed to this refreshingly real royal-to-be, who seems to be having a positive influence on Harry.

THOMAS Markle has revealed he is dreading his first Christmas without a card from Meghan - as he fumed: "I have been frozen out". The ex-Hollywood lighting director, 74, told how his daughter once wrote him touching letters every December - including one that said: "I love you with all my heart - now and forever." One of the affectionate letters - addressed to 'Daddy' - vows "all I want to do is make you proud... and I promise, no matter what, I'll do it."

He said: "I have been frozen out and I can’t stay silent. "I have made dozens of attempts to reach my daughter via text and letters, but she and Harry have put up a wall of silence.
