Thomas Markle Jr., the half-brother of Meghan Markle, pulls no punches when it comes to his thoughts on his estranged sibling. In a September preview of “Big Brother AU,” Thomas — whose only claim to fame on the show is being Meghan’s half-brother — is seen on camera once again reiterating his “shallow” comments, while also writing a letter to Meghan and Prince Harry. “You know I’m famous for writing letters,” Thomas prefaces his monologue before noting, “I’m gonna write a letter to Meghan.” “Dear Meghan and Harry… The first thing I want to say to both of you…” he says before leaving off on a cliffhanger. The words “What’s in the letter?” flashed on-screen afterward.
It’s a bold attempt to bite off Meghan’s fame, but this isn’t Thomas’ first rodeo. In 2018, In Touch published a letter penned by Thomas, which saw him plead for a last-minute invitation to Meghan’s wedding. In his letter, Thomas describes Meghan as a “loving, caring, amazing girl who had a great family growing up.” He then congratulates the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and notes, “I’m very proud of you and wish you the best,” with a resounding “Love, Tom Jr.” to top it off. Sounds like Thomas can’t make up his mind about Meghan, huh?
As it turns out, Meghan’s not the only one with skeletons in her closet. Keep reading to learn more about Thomas Markle’s past!
