Thomas Markle wishes daughter Meghan a 'brighter future' on her 40th birthday with $287 bouquet of red roses

THOMAS Markle wished his daughter Meghan a "brighter future" on her 40th birthday with a $287 bouquet of red roses.

The beautiful bouquet of roses was delivered to Meghan Markle from her dad with the help of Kaleidoscope Flowers in Santa Barbara, California.

In addition to the flowers, Meghan — who turned 40 on August 4 — was sent a small note that read: "Happy Birthday to my bean with much love and a brighter future. Dad."

The sweet note was written in blue ink on stationary from the flower shop.

Photos exclusively obtained by The Sun show 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.

Thomas, who wishes to be closer to Meghan, told TMZ that he also sent Meghan a personalized card.

"Wishing you a happy birthday and brighter days," the card reportedly read.

He said the flower bouquet had two yellow roses in the center for Megan and Prince Harry's two children, Archie and Lilibet, TMZ reported.

But Thomas claimed to have not heard back from Meghan after sending the birthday roses, TMZ reported.

The kind 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.
