“Actually, on the Piers show I lied,” Thomas admitted in the Channel 5 documentary released on Wednesday, January 22. “I said [that] they called me back and they were really concerned about me and I said, ‘Go on your honeymoon, don’t worry about me, I’ll be fine.’ And that was all a lie.”
He added: “So I made their image appear a little bit better.”
In Thomas’ new Channel 5 documentary, the 75-year-old also admits to lying to Harry about his involvement in pictures which were staged and published in the run-up to the wedding.
“I denied it,” he said in the documentary about his conversation with Harry following the release of the images. “All Harry asked me was did I pose for measurements for a suit, and I said, ‘No, I wasn’t posing for a measurement for a suit, I was being measured for a new hoodie.’ That’s what I told them.”
He explained, “Of course that was a lie. I lied to him. I’m not proud of that, but I did.”
“I’m going to defend myself and I’m going to be paid for it,” he revealed in the documentary. “I don’t care. At this point, they owe me. The royals owe me. Harry owes me, Meghan owes me. What I’ve been through I should be rewarded for.”
