Meghan Markle’s half brother, Thomas Markle Junior, has written a letter apologising for his behaviour.

The handwritten letter, which has been published by Australian magazine New Idea, see’s Thomas Junior apologising toMeghan, Harry, and his own father, Thomas Senior.

He claimed he has behaved like a “bad son and bad brother to Meg”.

“It is horrible to think that I may have played a role in the breakdown of your relationships.”

“And I am truly sorry for that.”

Thomas continued, writing:

“I’ve had no business making things worse between him, Meghan and Harry and I want us all but especially them to be a proper family and reconcile.”

“I hope Meghan gets in contact but my dad needs to prepare himself for it never happening.”

“But what she needs to remember is that she is only in Buckingham Palace with Harry because of her dad. He paid for her education and fancy clothes. He helped her become the exceptional woman she is and I beg her to recognise that.”

Back in 2018, Thomas Jr opened up to The Mirror about not being invited to his sister’s wedding.

He told the publication:

“I’m not bitter, just baffled.”

“It’s hurtful given how close we once were.”

“I’m confused and a little distraught because here is a person knowing the position she’s in and knowing the scrutiny she’s under and yet she has forgotten her flesh and blood.”
