Meghan Markle's dad has announced he hopes to see his grandchildren one day, after his public falling out with the Duchess.
His comments come just days after Prince Harry and Meghan announced they are expecting their second child.
Thomas Markle said: "I wish Meghan and Harry a successful, healthy birth and I hope some day I get to see my grandchildren.
“They’re all royal grandchildren.”
The 71-year-old spoke to CBS TV's Inside Edition for the first time since the couple announced Meghan is pregnant.
In the interview, which was conducted remotely as he spoke from his home in Rosarito, Mexico, he revealed he fears he's close to death.
Thomas and Meghan had a falling out during the Royal Wedding after he was unable to attend.
He lives 250 miles away from the couple who later moved to the US after stepping down as senior members of the Royal Family.
However, he has still not met 21-month-old Archie or Harry, 36.
His appearance on the show comes as Meghan, 39, won a High Court privacy case against a British newspaper last week.
She filed a case after the newspaper reprinted extracts of a letter Meghan had sent to her dad.

Regarding the win, Thomas said: “I am disappointed about this decision from the judge.
“I don’t know how you can judge a case without getting testimony from witnesses," reports The Sun.
Harry and Meghan's pregnancy announcement came on Valentine's Day, shortly after it was revealed the couple had agreed to an interview with Oprah Winfrey.
The couple have been criticised over the interview by fans and high profile journalists.
Plans for the interview have reportedly come as a complete surprise to Buckingham Palace.
A senior palace source told the Daily Mirror: “The Duke and Duchess are no longer working members of the royal family. Therefore, any decisions they make with regard to media commitments are matters for them.
“As non-working members of the royal family, they are under no obligation to inform the Royal Household of such plans.”
