Thomas said: "I was left out to dry. In spite of all that I’ve still apologised and I’m apologising today again.
"We all make mistakes… but I never played naked pool and I never dressed up as Hitler."
Thomas, 76, was referring to infamous nude pictures of Prince Harry taken in Las Vegas in 2012, as well as the time he was photographed wearing a Nazi uniform with a swastika armband in 2005.
Harry, 36, was snapped playing strip pool in his VIP suite while on holiday with friends in America.
And when he was just 20, he was pictured wearing a Nazi outfit at a colonial-themed fancy dress birthday party.
The Nazi costume was reportedly the beginning of a rift between Harry and his brother William.
Thomas made the same comments in a letter sent to his estranged daughter in 2018.
"The Royals haven't always been perfectly behaved. I've never played pool naked, nor have I dressed up as a Nazi," he wrote at the time.
Thomas also revealed today that he hung up on "snotty" Prince Harry when he called him about the royal wedding as he lay in hospital.
He said Harry phoned him when he was recovering after suffering a heart attack.
He said: "Harry had said to me 'if you had listened to me, this wouldn’t have happened to you'.
"Me, laying in a hospital bed after a having procedure, I had a stint put here and put here and that was kind of snotty so I hung up on him.”

In her candid interview with Oprah, the Duchess of Sussex opened up about her relationship with her dad and said she felt crushed when he lied to her.
Thomas today said they haven't spoken in four years – the last time was when he told them he couldn't fly to be at her wedding.
He added: "Like I said, this is actually the first time I've heard her speak in about four years.
"The last time we spoke, we actually texted, I was laying in hospital bed after a heart attack.
"I had to tell them that I couldn't fly for the wedding – at that point we pretty much said goodbye."
He added: "I'm very disappointed about it, I've apologised about this thing, at least 100 times.
"The bottom line is I've never heard back from Meghan and Harry in any way shape or form. I would love to hear from them."
Thomas went on to speak of his regret at staging paparazzi photographs ahead of his daughter's wedding.
