The 73-year-old 6 ft 3 inch former lighting director is still close to Meghan – he calls her 'Bean' – but he wants no part of the media circus surrounding the couple.

One relative revealed: "Tom adores his daughter but he wants the relationship with Harry to take its natural course and he has no interest in speaking publicly about the relationship."
