Meghan Markle's half-brother has shed some light on what her family is really like, as the royal wedding is set to take place is less than two weeks!
In an interview with Channel 7's Sunday Night, Thomas Markle Jr, told Melissa Doyle that he would like to one day be an uncle to her children.
He also revealed he has not been invited to the May 19 nuptials.
'I didn’t even know that we had a falling-out, so I would like to see her again, yeah. 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,' he said.
When asked if Meghan was 'embarrassed' by her family, Thomas replied yes.
'She’s probably embarrassed at some of the stories and accusations and, you know...' he told Melissa.
'I think my family’s always been fractured,' he added. '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.'
Royal biographer Andrew Morton also told Sunday Night that his concern was that their marriage may not last.
'There’s no doubt about it. They’re both birds with a broken wing. stable families, and...I find the one worrying thing about Meghan’s family is that on both sides, the marriages have lasted for two or three years, then they’ve split up,' he said.
'So marriage and abandonment are part of family lore, and with this family, she’s got to make a real go of it. There’s no walking away.'
It is yet to be confirmed whether Meghan's father Thomas will attend the royal wedding.
