Thomas Markle has hand delivered a letter to Oprah Winfrey, asking her to interview him about his relationship with estranged daughter Meghan.
The 76-year-old drove up to the talk show host’s $117 million estate in Montecito, California, on Thursday and handed the note to a security guard outside.
It is reported that he hopes to tell his side of the story to Oprah after her explosive interview with Meghan, in which the Duchess spoke of her father’s “betrayal”.
A source told The Sun this weekend: “Thomas delivered a letter to Oprah asking her to contact him so he could tell his side of the story.
“This was not a note to Meghan and Harry, it was meant for Oprah.
“Thomas watched the interview she did with them and feels he deserves a chance to have his say.”
In January last year, Thomas revealed to The Sun he was thinking of sending a letter to Oprah.
Knowing she was friends with his daughter, he said: “I was going to write Oprah a letter asking her to let me have an opportunity to speak.”
Thomas had a falling out with his daughter in the lead up to their wedding in 2018, when he lied about posing for paparazzi pictures.
Meghan told Oprah: “When I said we won’t be able to protect our own kids one day and I said: ‘So I just need you to tell me and if you tell me the truth, we can help’.
“He wasn’t able to do that. And that for me has really resonated, especially now as a mother.
“I look at Archie, I think about this child, and I genuinely can’t imagine doing anything to intentionally cause pain to my child.”
