Thomas Markle has dropped off a handwritten request to Oprah Winfrey, asking to be given time to explain his side of the Sussexes’ story.
His plea comes days after his estranged daughter, Meghan, slammed him in a joint interview with Prince Harry.
Thomas recently told Good Morning Britain that he was talking to the media “because they’re [Harry and Meghan] not talking to me – when they decide to talk to me I’ll stop talking to the press”.
In regards to a question about being ‘shamed’ by Harry and Meghan on Oprah’s interview to “promote their own image”, he replied: “I’ve been pushed around and knocked down for one big mistake I made.
“I’ve apologised for it as many times as I possibly can. However, I love my daughter very much.”
His bid to speak to Oprah comes as Monaco’s Prince Albert slammed Harry and Meghan’s interview as “inappropriate”.
In an extraordinary put-down, the country’s ruler said the couple should have shared their “dissatisfaction” with royal life “within the intimate quarters of the family”.
