Since suffering a stroke over two months ago, Meghan Markle’s estranged father Thomas Markle has made his first public appearance.

In a video that was aired as part of an interview his son gave, Thomas Markle, 77, made a brief return to the public spotlight. In the interview, the son spoke candidly about his father’s progress.

Thomas Markle was shown writing on a whiteboard in the footage, which was featured on GB News during an interview with Thomas Markle Jr., to communicate after suffering a stroke that left him mostly unable to talk.

On Dan Wootton’s programme, he created a placard that stated, “Hi Dan, I appreciate your kind words and those of the British people.

On May 23, Thomas Markle experienced a stroke, and he was hospitalised for five days.

A blood clot in his right side of the brain was the root cause of the severe stroke.

He eventually recovered after being taken to the hospital in a hurry and was able to utter a few words, but it will be difficult for him to speak normally.

He reportedly said, “I feel hugely grateful and know how lucky I am to be alive” a few weeks ago, upon his discharge.

He continued, “I want to thank everyone, especially the wonderful doctors and nurses who saved my life. They are angels.

I have been deeply moved by loving messages I’ve received from all over the world. People have been so kind. I can’t speak right now, but I am working hard and will thank people properly when I can.”

He had intended to travel to the UK in June to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, but the stroke put a stop to his plans.
