And in one of these conversations Harry also offered his future father-in-law some advice, including a brutal warning.
He told him to be very, very careful about his relationship with the press.
Mr Markle told the Mail on Sunday : "Harry told me that I should never go to the press. That it would all end in tears.
"He said, "They will eat you alive". He was right."
Thomas completely ignored the prince’s advice.
He met with photographers secretly and and posed for a number of photos, including shots of him being fitted for a suit.
When he was caught and the story hit the headline, he had another phone conversation with Meghan and Harry.
He claims Harry told him: "If you had listened to me, this would never had happened."
He’s also done a number of TV and newspaper interviews, in which he has spoken about his daughter and her new husband.
