Meghan Markle’s father is hoping Oprah Winfrey can help defuse the ongoing row between himself and Duchess of Sussex.
Thomas Markle wants the US TV legend to interview him in an effort to get his side of the story out.
Oprah’s broadcast with Meghan and Prince Harry made international headlines earlier this month, reports the Mirror.
And now 76-year-old Mr Markle has made his request in letter hand-delivered to Oprah’s home in California, it is alleged.

He also admitted they had fallen out after she was upset at him for speaking to the press in the run-up to her wedding in 2018.
