The 77-year-old is so serious that he's speaking out to news outlets before taking action.

“I will be petitioning the California courts for the rights to see my grandchildren in the very near future,” Thomas told Fox News.

Giving his interview from the comfort of his home in Rosarito, Mexico, Meghan's estranged dad said he hoped Queen Elizabeth and the rest of the royal family wouldn't punish his grandchildren for their parents' mistakes.

Thomas is talking about the accusations Meghan and Harry made against the palace, claiming someone within the quarters spewed racism their way, and the fact the Duke of Sussex is working on a tell-all about his family.

“Archie and Lili are small children. They’re not politics. They’re not pawns. They’re not part of the game,” Meghan's dad said, adding that he believes "they’re also royal and entitled to the same rights as any other royal.”

Meghan has spoken out about her strained relationship with her father, revealing she wouldn't reconcile with him.

Not only did Thomas allegedly stage photos for the press before her royal wedding to Harry, but he also leaked a letter from her to the tabloids.

Thomas was not at Meghan and Harry's wedding -- but spoke all about it to media.

The Duchess seemed to reference her failed relationship with her dad when talking to Oprah Winfrey in March.

“I look at Archie, I think about this child, and I genuinely can’t imagine doing anything to intentionally cause pain to my child,” she told the legendary TV host. “I can’t imagine it, so it’s hard for me to reconcile that.”

Meghan's family dynamic isn't the only messy one.

The palace is said to be in "chaos" after it was revealed Harry has been working on a tell-all for the past year.

As Radar exclusively reported, Harry collected a $15 million advance for the book but dishing about his family's troubles is part of the deal.

We're also told Prince William and the palace are gearing up to combat any mistruths in Harry's book.

“Any statements or claim that is deemed to be misleading or false will no longer be met with silence,” a Palace source revealed. “It was a mistake to turn the other check after the Oprah interview, that will not happen again. Harry needs to know that he is entitled to his own feelings but not his own facts.”
