Thomas Markle was photographed sending a letter to Oprah Winfrey’s home, requesting an interview with the US television host.
On Thursday, March 25, he pulled up to Oprah’s property in Montecito, California, which is close to his daughter Meghan Markle’s house, and gave the letter to a security guard.
The 76-year-old, who travelled from his home in Rosarito, Mexico, is said to want to share his side of the case.
A source told The Sun: “Thomas delivered a letter to Oprah asking her to contact him so he could tell his side of the story.
“This was not a note to Meghan and Harry, it was meant for Oprah.
“Thomas watched the interview she did with them and feels he deserves a chance to have his say.”
Meghan Markle and her dad have not spoken for four years.
During the interview with Oprah, Meghan discussed her strained relationship with her dad, saying, “I grieve a lot.”
She told Oprah: “I mean, I’ve lost my father. I lost a baby. I nearly lost my name. I mean, there’s the loss of identity. But I’m still standing, and my hope for people in the takeaway from this is to know that there’s another side.”
She said she found it difficult to describe his actions, adding: “I genuinely can’t imagine doing anything to intentionally cause pain to my child.”
