The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan soon to meet her father?


Meghan Markle could meet her estranged father, Thomas Markle this very year. As she has been invited to the wedding of her half brother, Thomas Markle Jr, in March.

Not only the Duchess of Sussex, but her husband, Harry got an invite too.

The request comes despite Thomas Jr not being invited to Meghan and Harry’s wedding in May last year. The soon-to-be mother is not believed to have spoken to her estranged father since her marriage to Prince Harry. In fact, Meghan’s brother indicated his father had also been invited, raising the possibility of a face-to-face meeting with the Duchess.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Thomas Jr commented:-

“Absolutely I think our wedding will bring the family quite closer together. It’s hopeful that if Meghan and Harry came to the wedding, then my father and they could spend some time together”.

Thomas Jr, 52, is due to marry 38-year-old mother of one, Darlene Blount. Their wedding will be held in either Reno or Las Vegas, Nevada. Mr Markle, royal bride’s father, was due to walk his daughter down the isle at Windsor Castle during her wedding. However, he pulled out due to health complications.

Since then, he has launched a number of public criticisms at both his daughter and the other members of the royal family. In July, last year, he claimed Princess Diana would have loathed the way he was being treated. And, earlier this month, he told The Sun that Prince Harry is showing arrogance and really needs to man up.

Thomas Jr insisted his nuptials would be the perfect time for his father and half-sister to reconcile.

He said: “My wedding would be a perfect time for my sister and my father to get together and just put all the past behind everybody. My dad would really enjoy that. Possibly it would bring the family closer, especially if everyone shows up”.

Thomas Jr and Ms Blount had been dating for two years before announcing their engagement. However, their relationship has been troubled at times. As they both were arrested separately over alleged domestic violence incidents. A court case against Ms Blount, who allegedly left her fiance with a black eye, is due to be thrown out in February.

the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Meghan have yet to announce any plans to attend the wedding. However, the royal couple is expecting a baby in the spring of this year. And so, reports are that it might complicate any travel plans.
