Prince Harry was spotted at the rugby today in his first public appearance since Meghan's 'devastating' letters revealed how she begged her father to stop his 'painful' attacks on her. 

Harry was seen arriving at Twickenham and shaking hands with Rugby fans before heading inside to watch England's Six Nations clash against France. 

A deeply personal letter sent by the duchess to her father was published this weekend, in which she accused him of breaking her heart 'into a million pieces' by giving interviews to the press, fabricating stories and attacking her new husband.

Thomas Markle has dismissed claims that he has not attempted to contact his daughter.

He revealed text messages that he claims prove he has tried to contact his estranged daughter.

Mr Markle was countering media reports that he has not reached out to her after an unnamed friend of the duchess told US magazine People: 'He's never called; he's never texted. It's super painful.'

Mr Markle said that contrary to claims made by Meghan's friends to the media, the letter was not an attempt to resolve their rift.

He said: 'I thought it would be an olive branch. Instead, it was a dagger to the heart.'

Kensington Palace declined to comment on the letter.

Five nameless friends of the duchess spoke to People in an effort to counter the 'global bullying' directed at her.

Mr Markle, who allegedly staged paparazzi photos of himself days before his daughter was due to marry the Duke of Cambridge, has previously claimed his relationship with his daughter has broken down.

He has made public appeals, including during an interview on Good Morning Britain, for his daughter to get in touch with him.

Meghan, who is currently pregnant, revealed in mid January her baby is due around the end of April or beginning of May.
