Thomas Markle quizzed on his son’s comments on Meghan Markle
Thomas spoke about his desire to meet two-year-old Archie Harrison and Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana, born in June, and make up with his estranged sister Meghan. In an interview, the 55-year-old window fitter from Oregon said he had “made some horrible mistakes” and be ready to ask his sister for forgiveness.
Speaking to Australian magazine New Idea, Thomas said: “I don’t need a photo-op to go see my sister, and I don’t want a story behind it.
“I don’t want anything, I would just love to go over to their home and knock on the door, give her a big hug and kiss, and say I missed the hell out of her and apologise right to her face … maybe one day that will happen.
“I’d do anything to see Archie and Lilibet.”
Thomas wrote a letter addressed to Prince Harry in April 2018 in which he warned him against marrying Meghan.

During the interview, Thomas also said he hopes Meghan will watch him on Australia’s Big Brother so she can see “the real me”.
The 55-year-old, who shares with Meghan the same father, Thomas Markle Snr, recalled Meghan and Harry announcing their engagement in November 2017.
Explaining he didn’t know how to manage the new popularity he achieved as a relative of Meghan almost overnight, Thomas said: “I was thrown to the wolves with the popularity and the media with no experience.
“I was being backed into a corner, into a wall.

“I made some horrible mistakes and still regret them to this day.
“But filming Big Brother, I mean, my God, I mean, I got so much out of that personally, on a spiritual level, clearing the dust away, the bad clouds, the bad energy, and it turned into the most amazing, positive experience to undo all the bad.”
Thomas, who also has another sister named Samantha, is believed not to have seen or spoken to Meghan for years.
