MEGHAN Markle reportedly ignored her dad after he sent her flowers for her 40th birthday.
Thomas Markle wished the Duchess of Sussex a "brighter future" on Wednesday with a $287 (around £200) bouquet of red roses, exclusively revealed by The Sun.
He sent a dozen red roses with two yellow roses in the middle, which Thomas said symbolised Meghan and Harry's two children Archie and Lilibet.
Meghan's estranged dad told TMZ he wanted to incorporate his grandkids in the arrangement because he wants to be a part of their lives.
And he sent them with a small note seen by The Sun, which read: "Happy Birthday to my bean with much love and a brighter future. Dad."
But Thomas told TMZ he hasn't heard from his daughter since he sent the gift.
He reportedly said 'that's fine' and he's just 'hoping she likes the flowers'.

Photos exclusively obtained by The Sun showed a white van transporting the flowers to Meghan and Harry's home.
The truck was spotted driving through the front gates of the Royal couple's Montecito home in California.
And a photo of Thomas' receipt from the flower shop revealed the assortment of roses cost $250.
However, with a $14 delivery fee and $23.11 in taxes, Thomas spent a total of $287.11.
His gesture comes not long after Thomas blasted his daughter Meghan and Prince Harry as "bad parents" who have "made mistakes" in raising his grandchildren.
The Duchess of Sussex's estranged father criticized the couple's "bad behavior" and the effect it has had on raising their son Archie, 2, and newborn girl Lilibet.
In an explosive interview with Fox News in July, Thomas emotionally appealed to the Queen and the British public to not shun the youngsters due to the pair's actions.
Speaking from his home in Rosarito, Mexico, Thomas said: "I'm hoping Her Majesty the Queen and the people in England will stop and think about the mistakes and bad behavior of their parents.
"I will be petitioning the California courts for the right to see my grandchildren in the very near future."
The former Hollywood lighting director has yet to meet his two grandkids due to his fractious relationship with his ex-Royal daughter – who he hasn't seen since before her 2018 marriage to Harry, the Duke of Sussex.
It comes after The Times claimed that Meghan slammed the door on Kate Middleton when she took flowers to Nottingham Cottage – the Sussex's home at the time.
Kate was said to be apologising for a fallout they'd had about bridesmaid dresses in the build up to Meghan and Harry's wedding.
