In a preview clip, Thomas said: "I don't think at this point they're thrilled to see me or want to talk to me. The last time they might see me is being lowered into the ground."

Defending the fact that he has been paid to take part in the 90-minute documentary, Thomas said that "the royals" owe him.

He said: "I don't care. At this point, they owe me. The royals owe me. Harry owes me, Meghan owes me."

Thomas continued: "What I've been through I should be rewarded for. My daughter told me that when I reach my senior years she'll take care of me. I'm in my senior years now, it's time to look after Daddy."

"Harry said to me: 'If you had listened to me, this wouldn't have happened to you.' I said to him: 'It's too bad I didn't die because then you guys could pretend you were sad,' and then I hung up on them. I was done," Thomas said.

Thomas is also set to reveal his thoughts on Meghan stepping down as a senior member of the royal family.
