You may remember back when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced that they were engaged that while the rest of the world was over the moon, Meghan’s family wasn’t too thrilled about the pending nuptials.

One person in particular was Meghan’s half brother, Thomas Markle Jr, who actually put pen to paper and wrote a scathing letter to Prince Harry telling him not to marry his sister.

If that wasn’t bad enough, the letter was penned just weeks before Meghan and Harry’s big day was held.

In case you need a refresher, here’s some of what the letter said (according to The Sun):

“Dear Prince Harry, It’s not to late, Meghan Markle is obviously not the right woman for you.

“As more time passes to your Royal Wedding it becomes very clear that this is the biggest mistake in royal wedding history.

“I’m confused why you don’t see the real Meghan that the whole world now sees. Meghan’s attempt to act the part of princess like a below C average Hollywood actress is getting old.”

Ouch!

So what brought Thomas Markle Jr. to take such drastic measures to try and stop the royal wedding?

Speaking with Kyle and Jackie O this morning, Thomas told us that he wrote the letter in a moment of rage towards his sister for the way that she had treated their family, including not inviting them to the wedding.

“I’ve done a few things in the past, you know I wrote that letter to Prince Harry,” Thomas said this morning.

“That was out of some weird correspondence I got back from Meghan’s people about distant family and I don’t know those people.”

“Is that the one you wrote saying ‘Don’t marry her’?” Kyle asked.

“Yeah you know, I got a little upset being called distant family and I don’t know those people,” he continued.

“Me including the entire family being chased around and having our lives turned upside down, under a microscope by paparazzi got really old. Before I got in trouble beating them up in the street I just wanted to get some assistance.”

Thomas also opened up about Meghan’s strained relationship with her sister Samantha Markle and discussed whether he thinks Meghan will head back into a career in Hollywood.
