Meghan Markle’s father Thomas Markle has been seen in his hometown of Rosarito, Mexico, in recent days.
The 73-year-old award-winning photographer is the man who Meghan credits with exposing her to life on a film set and giving her the acting bug.
Mr Markle was seen picking up his dry cleaning in a white plastic bag. He wore a casual black t-shirt, loose-fitting denim jeans and grey Nike trainers.
His glasses were hanging from the neck of his shirt as the actress’s father got into his cherry red Ford Escape.
While Meghan Markle’s father appears to live a relatively low key life in comparison to his very Hollywood daughter Meghan, there is one sign that he might be preparing himself for royal life.
Mr Markle was seen carrying a box of British tea in his hands, which the Queen is said to be a fan of.
The cinematographer clutched a red box of Twinings tea. He also carried a bottle, which may have been champagne, in his left hand.
Perhaps Mr Markle feels he has something to celebrate? His daughter revealed her engagement to Prince Harry only last week.
An author of a book providing an intimate look into the Queen’s life, Brian Hoey, revealed Elizabeth II has Twinings every morning.
In his book At Home With The Queen, the author revealed the Queen is brought a tray of Twinings’ English breakfast tea, with milk and marie cookies at the start of each day.
Mr Markle might be preparing for May, when he is highly likely to take tea with the British royals at Meghan’s wedding to Prince Harry.
Prince Harry was pictured heading to an event in London this week without Meghan Markle at his side, prompting questions about there whereabouts of his fiancee.
However, it can now be revealed why Meghan Markle was not at the event with Prince Harry.
The Suits actress is visiting her mother, Doria Ragland, in her hometown of LA.
It is thought Meghan will join Harry back in the UK for Christmas, so it is no surprise she is getting in some quality time with her mother.
Doria is a yoga teacher and therapist, who introduced Meghan to the Eastern exercise fad of which she is a self-confessed fan.
