On Monday night’s episode of Big Brother VIP, all eyes were on Thomas Markle Jr as he penned a new letter to half-sister Meghan Markle.
The letter apologised for the explosive missive he previously sent Meghan and her then-fiance Prince Harry in 2018, weeks before the couple’s wedding.
Back then, Thomas told Harry: “It’s not too late, Meghan Markle is obviously not the right woman for you… it’s become very clear this will be the biggest mistake in Royal Wedding history”.

As part of a secret mission, Luke Toki convinced Thomas to grapple with his past and write a new letter, with the hope to heal the bad blood between the siblings.
Thomas instantly agreed and opened up to Luke about the difficulties of the sibling relationship.
“How in the hell would anybody in the entire world have to work or communicate on a relationship through the media,” he said.
In his letter, Thomas said that the previous letter he sent the pair “came from a very dark and hurt part of my heart”.
“The letter was definitely written out of me feeling really hurt and confused when I was informed of your response that I was distant family and that you did not know those people,” he told his half-sister in his new note.
“All I could do was put up a defence wall to protect my heart.”

Thomas continued: “I wish I could turn back the clock and do it all over. I would have never tried to communicate any of my feelings in the media.
“I feel like a complete a*** for what I have done.
“What I did to you is quite possibly the biggest mistake of my life”
Thomas concluded the letter by writing, “I hope you and Harry can find it in your hearts to accept my sincere apology because this is the real Tom Markle Jr.”
After Thomas read the letter out to Luke he admitted, “Big Brother VIP is the gift that keeps on giving.”
“I’ve grown exponentially since my stay here”.
Later in the episode, Thomas proved just how effective the letter was in allowing him to deal with his past relationship with Meghan.
At the VIP Gallery event, Thomas stool proudly beside a photo of the pair taken prior to Meghan finding fame.
Instead of criticising her and her choices as he did in previous episodes, Thomas said: “This is my awesome sister Meghan. Meghan, my god look at the smile on her face, look at the smile on my face!”
There’s pure joy and happiness there. I love my sister, she’s family, she’s blood and she always will be”.
