Potentially embarrassing comments made by Meghan Markle's dad about his own daughter and Prince Harry were reportedly edited out of a YouTube podcast he used to co-host.
Fellow presenter Karl Larsen told American media outlet Insider that he removed some parts of his discussions with Thomas Markle before they went live on their Remarkable Friendship channel.
He said his reason for doing so was because he felt his friend might later regret some of his thoughts.
Larsen – a celebrity photographer – would chat with 77-year-old Thomas during the videos about pop culture, the Royal Family, and his estranged daughter Meghan.
But he insisted that anything he felt Thomas had said that overstepped the mark was cut out, unlike when the Duchess' dad is seen on TV in this country.
"When he does interviews on networks, whether it's with Piers Morgan or Dan Wootton, they're always drilling him with questions and then he feels like he always has to answer it," Larsen pointed out. "He's got no filter.
"There are things that are said on my channel that I think are inappropriate, that I cut out. But people like Dan Wootton, he's not gonna cut out, 'Oh, Harry's an idiot?' We gotta keep that."
But Thomas' views have not always gone out censored on YouTube either.

In early April, he used the platform to criticise Harry for not attending Prince Philip's memorial service and, in March, he claimed that most people would hate the couple if it wasn't for their PR team.
Larsen said the YouTube channel had been created with the intention of showing people the real Thomas.
But Meghan's father has since told Insider that his relationship with Larsen has now been severed and their last YouTube video was uploaded on May 21.
Thomas' son, Thomas Markle Jr has also informed the outlet that he was unhappy with Larsen for speaking on his father's behalf.
A stroke hospitalised Thomas in May, meaning he missed the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations, which he had planned to attend.
Larsen, meanwhile, has also claimed that he is co-writing a memoir with Timothy Reinhardt called, "Don't Judge a Book by its Cover; My Story with Thomas Markle."
