Meghan Markle's estranged brother claims father disapproves of Prince Harry

Meghan Markle's estranged brother, Thomas Markle Jr, has made some pretty explosive revelations about their father's true feelings regarding Prince Harry.

Now that the brother of the Duchess of Sussex has a stint on the popular reality TV show Big Brother VIP, a lot has been revealed about his sister and their rifted relationship.

Disapproved by their father

During an episode of the show, Thomas Markle Jr explained that their father, Markle Sr, has never been fan of the Duke of Sussex. He claims their father does not approve of the royal despite never having even met him in person. According to Meghan Markle's older brother, their father once specifically said that Prince Harry could not be trusted:

My dad doesn't approve of him. My father says he couldn't even protect those chickens in their backyard if he needed to.

He further explained that the rift between the siblings first took place after he wrote a letter to the palace asking for help in stopping the paparazzi from invading his privacy. He went on to say:

And the correspondence I got back was [that I was] 'distant family and I don't know those people.' That came from Meghan.

Seeking reconciliation

Not only has the brother discredited Meghan Markle's experience with mental health struggles he has also made comments regarding how her place in the Royal Family. However, he has since come out with a public apology for criticising her so blatantly in the media.

He has gone as far as to say that he recognises 'the horrible mistakes' he has made and explained that going on the reality TV show is a way for him to reconcile with his sister. He said:

That's why I'm doing this, so she can see the real me. I want everybody watching to take away this side of me, the real me. I am lovable, nice, I'll give you the shirt off my back, I'm funny.
