Meghan Markle’s uncle left ‘FURIOUS’ after NOT being invited to Royal Wedding
Meghan Markle’s uncle, Michael Markle, has been left furious after the royal-to-be snubbed yet another one of her family members as her wedding fast approaches.
None of Meghan Markle’s half-siblings, aunts or cousins had been invited to the event which will take place on May 19.
Ms Markle’s uncle accused her of deepening a family rift by failing to invite most of her family to the wedding.
Mr Markle, a retired US diplomat, said he was hurt by the snub, adding: “It’s uncalled for.”
Michael, the brother of Meghan’s father Tom, said he had helped his niece get her first job at the American embassy in Argentina in 2001 when she was just 20-years-old.
He said: “I knew the ambassador and I asked him if he could help, as her application was a little on the late side.
“That’s why I don’t understand why she has been so indifferent towards me.
“It’s uncalled for.
“I helped her out and I didn’t ask for anything in return.”
He went onto discuss how he was upset and surprised about not being invited to the Royal Wedding, adding “but if they don’t want me there, then I don’t want to go.”
He said: “This whole invitation thing has not been played out very well.
“I never did anything to embarrass Meghan.
“It seems to me they handled the arrangements poorly.”
In an interview with the Mail on Sunday, he continued: “It was not well thought-out because no Markles I know are going to the wedding, although you’d expect the bride’s father to be there.
“I’m disappointed, but I hope she has a good wedding.”
The comments came amid growing anxiety about the wedding plans and who is going to attend.
Michael’s daughter Trish Gallop, 58, said: “People usually invite their families to weddings, whether they are close or not.
“I would have loved to have given her my best wishes.
“We as a family are very saddened that we won’t be there to witness her beautiful celebration.”
According to a Palace source, the list of 600 guests does include several star names, including the celebrity vet who treated Meghan’s dog.
Among those expected to attend are former England football captain David Beckham and his wife Victoria, and tennis legend Serena Williams.
It is also believed the main cast members of Suits, the legal drama that gave Meghan a platform for fame, have been invited, a source close to the show said.
They said: “They are thrilled.
“Everyone is planning their outfits but we’re all sworn to secrecy.”
