Royal wedding: Meghan Markle ’embarrassed’ by her ‘fractured’ family, says half-brother

MEGHAN Markle has not invited most of her family members to the royal wedding because she is “embarrassed” by them, her half-brother has claimed.

Meghan Markle, 36, is due to marry Prince Harry at Windsor Castle on May 19 in front of a TV audience of millions worldwide.

Her father and mother are understood to have been invited to the royal wedding, but no other members of the Markle family are due to attend.

Now her half-brother Thomas Markle Jr has spoken out, claiming the Duchess-to-be could be “embarrassed” by media rumours involving her family.

Asked if he had been invited to the wedding, Mr Markle Jr said: “No. I don’t know. When do the invitations go out?

“Nobody has my address anyway. I’m pretty hard to get hold of.”

Speaking to Australia’s Channel 7, he added: “She’s probably embarrassed at some of the stories and accusations. I think my family’s always been fractured.

“I think now, more than ever, it should be the time for everybody to put their differences aside and just, you know, be a family.

“We have a small family. It may be broken up, but it’s still a family.”

The 50-year-old said he hoped that, if Prince Harry’s fiancee becomes pregnant, she would welcome him to get to know her future children.

He said: “I think an uncle is a pretty important role.

“I didn’t even know that we had a falling-out, so I would like to see her again. I want to give her a hug and tell her how proud I am of her.

“But, you know, I really have to travel a really long way to do that.”

Little is known about Ms Markle’s reclusive father Thomas Sr, who is reported to be living a solitary life in Mexico.

Speaking about their father, Mr Markle Jr said: “My dad just wants to be left alone. He doesn’t like spotlight. He doesn’t like anything, interviews.

“You know, and that’s why he moved down there, to just be alone. But he’s gotta come out now, though.

“I mean, he’s gotta step up to the plate and walk his daughter down that aisle.”
