Thomas Markle Jr has previously branded Meghan “shallow” and warned Prince Harry that the former Suits actress would “ruin his life”. The 55-year-old is currently appearing on the Australian reality show Big Brother VIP, where he was expected to dish the dirt on the former frontline royal.
Now in a stunning U-turn, the American window fitter has admitted that he has made some “horrible mistakes” which he profoundly regrets.
Mr Markle Jr said he hoped that the 40-year-old was watching the show so she could witness his apology first-hand.
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 loveable, nice, I’ll give you the shirt off my back, I’m funny.”
In an interview during the show, he claimed that he loved his sister and would do anything to meet his new niece Lilibet, who was just four months old, and his two-year-old nephew Archie.
He even claimed that he wouldn’t use the hypothetical meeting to get stories about his half-sister.
Mr Markle Jr also told Australia’s New Idea: “I don’t need a photo-op to go see my sister, and I don’t want a story behind it.

“I don’t want anything, I would just love to go over to their home and knock on the door, give her a big hug and kiss, and say I missed the hell out of her and apologise right to her face.”
While on the face of it his remarks seemed genuine, they fly in the face of comments he made to fellow housemates just a day earlier.
Discussing the former Hollywood actress, he said: “Last time [I saw her] was at my grandmother’s funeral in 2011, and she took off after that and went to Canada.
“We were close before. Money changed her, money and fame went to her head really bad.
“I guess when you are introduced to the one percent of society – that is most likely the reason that happened to her, when she didn’t have anything before.”
He went on to claim that Meghan treated her former husband Trevor Engelson “coldly”.
The Duchess was married to the Hollywood producer from 2011 to 2013.
Speaking on the show, he said: “The guy she was was married to the first time, Trevor, have you seen those Saw movies?
“This guy works for that production company. That guy just took care of her. She was adored by him.
“And she just walked all over him and dumped him, that fast. After being married, she sent him the ring in the post – is that cold or what?”
Thomas Jr claimed that growing up with Meghan had been a “great experience” and he insisted that they were “very close”.
But he said their relationship soured when Prince Harry came onto the scene in 2017.
