Cape Town – Meghan’s estranged half-brother, Thomas Markle Jr, is pleading with her to heal the rift with their father before “it’s too late”.

In an interview with Daily Mail, Thomas Jr compared the treatment of his family by the royals, to that of Catherine’s family – the Middletons.

Referring to the Duchess of Cambridge’s uncle, Gary Goldsmith – who has been married four times and a convicted for domestic assault – Thomas said: “They have [brought outsiders in] before in the past like with the Middletons. I don't see why our family is any different…

“I think Uncle Gary and I would get along just fine. It would have been nice to at least get an invite to the wedding like he was.”

Thomas went on to say that Meghan and the royals should have handled things differently from the beginning.

“Kensington Palace could have got involved a long time ago – as soon as they announced their engagement.

“They've dealt with this kind of stuff for a long time and why they did it this way, that's the big question? Why? They could have looked after my dad and he would have been happy.”

Thomas Jr’s comments come after Thomas Snr’s recent interview, in which he revealed that he told Meghan and Harry they would probably be better off if he was dead.

WHERE IT ALL WENT WRONG

Speaking about Meghan’s relationship with their father, Thomas Jr says things started to go south after the Duchess of Sussex joined legal drama, Suits.

“Before she went to Suits, they were just in constant contact all the time and that's all he would ever talk about…” But afterwards, “she didn't need him like she needed him before – she was getting everything she wanted from being a star and being on that show.”

Thomas Jr added that the relationship then “became a lot more distant”.
