While it's not exactly Kensington Palace, Villa del Mare gives the castle a run for its money.
Speaking of the Duke of Sussex's follow-up call after he had been informed of the scandal, Mr Markle said the prince told him: "If you had listened to me this would never have happened".
The move is hardly a surprise given how close Meghan and her mom are-in fact, Doria was the only member of Meghan's family to attend her wedding to Prince Harry, and also appears to be one of the only members of Meghan's family who isn't talking to the press.
But he told The Mail On Sunday it "hurt" the comments came so soon after he suffered a heart attack.
Looking back, Thomas admits his son-in-law was "absolutely right" to criticise him.
"He said, "They will eat you alive".
Ragland is "said to be deeply impressed by the Royal Family" after participating in her daughter's wedding, and is "beside herself with excitement" over the prospect of living near Meghan and Harry in London.
He then replied: "Maybe it would be better for you guys if I was dead. then you could pretend to be sad".
Mr Markle has also revealed he has not spoken to his daughter since the wedding and that he feels he had been "cut off" as a punishment for staging the fake paparazzi pictures.
Mr Markle said the royal had warned him about the dangers of colluding with the media.
The former lighting director, 74, claims the couple "disrespected" him, with Harry telling him ignoring their advice not to talk to the paparazzi had landed him in a hard position. "Following rumours that Meghan and Harry will start a family of their own in the near future, it makes sense that Ragland would want to be much nearer her daughter", Harper's Bazaar wrote. "What riles me is Meghan's sense of superiority".
He added: "I'm not mad at Harry".
"At first I thought, 'That's OK, because I'm part of the wedding, ' but I would have loved to have had an invitation to put in a frame", he tells the publication.
