Meghan Markle’s estranged brother begs to attend wedding in latest letter

'It's not too late to send me an invite'

Meghan Markle’s estranged brother has penned a letter begging to attend the royal wedding.

Thomas Markle Jr, 51, who shares the same father with the future royal, wrote the two-page letter asking to attend her May 19 wedding to Prince Harry.

“Meg I know that I’m not perfect, nor is anyone else in our family, as I’m sure you have read by now. But good, bad, or perfect, we’re the only family that you have,” he wrote in the letter, published by InTouch.


“It does hurt my feelings not getting invited to your wedding, along with the rest of the family. But it’s not too late to send me an invite along with your entire family.”

“That’s what families do,” he said. “Not to mention, how long it’s been since we all seen and have gotten together, that would be very nice.”

“I’m sorry for venting my frustrations about (how) he should call it off, but I was disappointed and confused about not getting invited,” Thomas Markle wrote in the May 3 letter. “I really only wish you the best.”

A Kensington Palace statement last week confirmed Meghan’s parents will be attending, there was no mention of any other family members who are invited from the U.S.
