“We shouldn’t be punishing [Lili] for and Harry’s bad behavior,” he said. “Archie and Lili are small children. They’re not politics. They’re not pawns. They’re not part of the game. And they’re also royal and entitled to the same rights as any other royal.”

That wasn’t all Thomas had to say. He took issue with the news that Harry will be releasing a memoir.

The book is slated to come out in 2022 and will cover the “highs and lows, the mistakes, the lessons learned” of his life so far and the pairs departure from royal life, which has been dubbed as Megxit.

Thomas felt that “after three sessions with the psychiatrists and Oprah Winfrey” that his son-in-law would not “have too much more to tell.”

Meghan and her father’s relationship has been strained for some time. The “betrayal” of Meghan’s trust has largely been attributed to her father staging paparazzi photos with a British tabloid ahead of her wedding in 2018.

Thomas did not attend the couple’s wedding having suffering a heart attack, with Prince Charles walking her down the aisle instead.

I wish I hadn’t done the whole thing,” Thomas admitted on Good Morning Britain earlier this year but said he felt pressured into doing the staged photos as press constantly followed him. “So, yes, I went for this deal where this man was going to make me look better,” he explained. “Maybe I got sucked into it, but I believed him, and I thought it was going to work. It didn’t work. Of course.”

“Of course it hurts, there are axe murderers in prison and their family comes to see them,” Thomas said last month about not seeing Meghan and her children.

“I’m not an axe murder. I made one dumb mistake and I’ve been punished for it. This show they’ve been on, they talk about compassion, there’s no compassion for me, no compassion for my family, and no compassion for the world,” he explained and said he apologized for the photos. “If I had done something terribly wrong, that would be fine, but I haven’t.”

Thomas said that his daughter got her first taste of fame when she was around 12 and came with him on the red carpet when he won an Emmy award. “Meghan turned to me and said ‘Daddy, I want to be famous just like you one day,’” he claimed and said he told his daughter that family is what matters, not fame.
