Meghan Markle’s brother breaks down on live TV as he pleads to meet her baby

Meghan Markle's estranged brother fought back tears as he made an emotional plea on live TV to meet the royal baby and heal the family rift.

Thomas Markle Jr, who has not seen the Duchess since 2011, sobbed: "Meghan if you are watching now, I love you very much. I always have loved you.

"I want us to be together as a family."

The 52-year-old, who made the comments during an interview on Non E La D'Urso in Italy, also showered the pregnant 37-year-old with praise and described her as an "extraordinary woman" who he was "very proud of".

He said: "I am all for Meghan and I want to be reunited as a family.

“Any new baby that comes into a family is a very big deal. I would love to meet the little prince or princess."

He also admitted that the scathing letter he wrote last year telling Harry to call off the wedding was "done out of frustration".

He said: “She went into the spotlight overnight and it's been very difficult for her and the family.

“I wrote that letter in a period of real frustration.

“I reached out to her for help to deal with the press but didn't get any response and it was all very frustrating for me. That's the reason I wrote that letter.

"She did reply and said I was only distant family and I felt very frustrated by it. I couldn't believe it, as we were so close growing up as kids."

As previously reported, the explosive letter blasted the wedding as a "fake fairytale" that would "make a joke of you [ Prince Harry ] and the royal family heritage".

He added that it would be the "biggest mistake in royal wedding history".

But now Thomas is desperate to make amends and believes the new little prince or princess could help heal the Markle family rift.

He added: “I am all for Meghan and I want to be reunited as a family.

“I love her very much and am very proud of her.

“I wish her an amazing life.

“She's absolutely not a danger to the Royal Family.

“She is a loving, warm intelligent person who loves her family. She's an extraordinary woman.

"The last time I spoke to Meghan was 2011. The big question is why she doesn't want to speak to me or her sister Samantha."

The TV interview comes weeks after Thomas Jr said Meghan's fractious relationship with her dad is “broken beyond repair” .

He said: “There’s no trust between them.

“Both of them have to shoulder the responsibility of how a once very loving father/daughter ­relationship is now so bad it is ­irretrievable. It will never be the same. I hope I’m wrong.

“Between them, they have made some abysmal choices.

“Dad has spoken out in public when he should have done it in private. But then for Meghan to sanction her friends to give details about their breakdown is, after all this time, very difficult to understand.

“Knowing dad as we do, she knows backing him into a corner only results in one thing – he lashes out. Meg was naive to think otherwise.”
