Meghan and Prince Harry welcomed their first child Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor on Monday.
The 37-year-old Duchess has reportedly not spoken to her father since before her wedding in May after repeatedly talking to the press about their relationship.
Ms. Markle spoke out to warn Meghan not to let him back into her life.
She said to the mirror: “He repeatedly showed Meghan that you can't trust him. She should know that now. I don't speak out of bitterness, my life developed many years ago, but out of concern.
& # 39; Archie deserves to be brought up in a happy home, not in the vengeful situation that was created. Tom was a terrible father. What makes him think he'd be a great-grandfather for Archie? & # 39;
She claims that at some point he left the family with his parents to live a single life in Chicago.
When he came back for them – after his parents asked him to do so – they reportedly moved back in, but nothing changed.
She claims that he will come home "smelling like women" and will even sleep with one of her relatives at some point while they are still married.

Thomas told Spiegel: “These allegations about my relationship with my first wife more than 40 years ago are not valid. None of them. If you have any questions, ask my children.
"Note that both Samantha and Tom Jr. left their mother and came to me because of their numerous bad habits and ill-treatment.
"I have never said a bad word about Roslyn until now, but I have to defend myself."
The news comes when Ms. Markle revealed that Thomas had never met two of his grandchildren, ages 34 and 32, despite welcoming Archie on Monday.

Roslyn told DailyMail.com: "Yes, [Baby Sussex] is his grandchild, but considering that he has five others he has no relationship with … He has never seen two of them.
“He never met Ashleigh and Christopher [Hale] and Noel [Rasmussen] with whom he doesn't speak. She really had no connection with him, apart from the few conversations they had. «
About the new baby, she added: “It's wonderful news. Babies are a joy. I wish Meghan and Harry all the best and look forward to seeing the pictures like the rest of the world. & # 39;
