While appearing on the Italian TV program Live Non è La d’Urso, the 52-year old made a plea last week to his half-sister in yet another attempt from her estranged family to get their 15 minutes of fame.

Mr. Markle back-tracked on the letter he wrote to the Queen and Prince Harry ahead of the May 2018 wedding, where he claimed that the Suits alum was a “danger to the royal family,” and that the nuptials were “the biggest mistake in royal wedding history”:

“I wrote that letter in a period of real frustration. 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. No, no, 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.”

That’s a pretty big change of tune from someone who once referred to Miz Markle as a “jaded, shallow, conceited woman that will make a joke of you and the royal family heritage” who was “obviously not the right woman for” her future husband…

Ouch!!

The estranged bro continued:

“I reached out to her for help to deal with the press but didn’t get any and it was all very frustrating for me. That’s why I wrote that letter. Things have changed since I wrote that letter. I am all for Meghan and I want to be reunited as a family. I just want to say I love you very much and I want us to be together as a family.”

He also touched on when they last spoke and their relationship today:

“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. There is a lot of pressure on her. She went into the spotlight overnight and it’s been very difficult.”

While the Duchess of Sussex’s exact due date is unclear, this uncle-to-be says he’s looking forward to meeting the royal baby:

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