Thomas Markle Jr famously wrote a letter to Prince Harry telling him not to marry his half-sister in April 2018. The 55-year-old branded the Duchess of Sussex – who he has no relationship with – “very shallow” and warned Harry she would “ruin” his life shortly before their wedding.
Ahead of his appearance in the upcoming series of Channel Seven’s Big Brother VIP, Mr Markle has apparently decided to reach out to his estranged half-sister and Harry.
In an introductory clip for the hotly anticipated series, he can be seen sitting in the diary room announcing plans.
“You know I’m famous for writing letters,” he says, while seated alongside former Australian Survivor contestant Luke Toki.
“I’m gonna write a letter to Meghan,” he announces before he is seen putting ink to paper.

“Dear Meghan and Harry… The first thing I want to say to both of you…” he begins, trailing off.
Mr Markle Jr’s previous attempts to contact Harry came weeks before the Duke and Duchess of Sussex tied the knot at Windsor Castle – when they were still senior members of the Royal Family.
In the open letter, Mr Markle said: “Dear Prince Harry, It’s not too late, Meghan Markle is obviously not the right woman for you.
“As more time passes to your Royal Wedding, it becomes very clear that this is the biggest mistake in royal wedding history.

“I’m confused why you don’t see the real Meghan that the whole world now sees.
“Meghan’s attempt to act the part of a princess like a below C average Hollywood actress is getting old.”
He later penned a new open letter to Meghan at the beginning of May.
In it, he shared fond childhood memories and wished her well for the big day.

Shortly before the ceremony, Mr Markle again backtracked on his original letter – claiming it was written in a “moment of madness”.
He told the Mirror he is extremely proud of the former Suits actress, saying: “My sister’s going to be one of the best things ever to have happened to the royal family.
“She will be the perfect modern princess. I wish Meg and Harry nothing but a happy and healthy future together.”
Addressing his open letter, he said that he had been at “breaking point”.

Mr Markle went on to claim he suffered a “moment of madness” after trying to get help from Kensington Palace over the press attention he had received since news of Meghan’s relationship with Harry emerged.
US star Caitlyn Jenner is also appearing in the series.
The pair will star alongside Omarosa Manigault Newman, 47, a former adviser to Donald Trump, and several Australian personalities.
