Meghan Markle's Estranged Brother Is 'Looking Forward To' Royal Wedding Despite NOT Receiving An Invite!
No wonder she’s losing so much sleep!
But some of Markle’s family members have yet to receive an invite… including her half-brother Thomas Markle Jr.!
On Thursday, the Grants Pass, Oregon resident — who has not seen the Suits star since their grandmother’s funeral in 2011 — spoke to DailyMailTV about his royal wedding snub. Although he has yet to receive an invite, he expects to get one very soon.
“I haven’t got an invite yet but I do expect to get one. It would be really nice [to get an invitation] and it would mean a lot… I do expect one and I’m looking forward to going. I don’t see why not. It is what it is. I am family, estranged or not.”
After the couple announced their engagement in November, Thomas sent his “estranged” sister a congratulatory note, though she has yet to write him back.
“I sent a letter. Just basically [saying] I’m really happy for you, congratulations, you’re amazing, you’re going to do well and congratulations… No, I didn’t hear back but I’m sure she’s busy. She’s got a lot on her plate right now – she’s in a whirlwind. She’s becoming a princess… It’s probably really hard for her to think about anything else except for her wedding and everything like that.”
As we reported in January, the 51-year-old was arrested after he allegedly held a gun to his girlfriend Darlene Blount‘s head during a heated argument. His case was eventually dropped before it went to court.
In response to the controversy, he says:
“I’m a private citizen – just so happens, my sister’s marrying Prince Harry so all I do now is look round the corner to see if someone with a camera is following me around… I’m human and mistakes happen and drinking happens and fights happen and it is what it is. If she’s embarrassed about that, then I’m sorry… But that’s why I did reach out and say, hey, let’s do something about this because you should want to get along anyway.”
If Thomas ends up being left off the guest list, he says he won’t be too “heartbroken” explaining:
“I won’t be heartbroken, it’ll be OK… I won’t be upset. I’ve got my own wedding to plan. We haven’t set a date yet but it’s coming up pretty soon.”
Don’t hold your breath, dude!
