We’re just weeks away from the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and royal insiders say the preparations are proceeding apace.
Of course, not everyone is pleased with the news updates coming out of Kensington Palace.
Harry and Meghan’s invitations were sent out last week, and while estimates on the size of the guest list have varied widely, sources concur that several members of Meghan’s immediate family were snubbed.
Meghan’s sketchy half-sister, Samantha Markle, has already complained that she didn’t receive an invitation.
Although we can’t imagine that came as much of a surprise, as Samantha has basically been making a career of trash-talking her sister ever since the world learned Meghan was dating Harry.
And unfortunately, she’s not the only sketchy Markle sibling.
Meghan has a half-brother named Thomas Markle Jr., and he’s also been throwing shade for anyone who cares to listen.
In fact, his assessments of Meg might be even more brutal than Samantha’s – but remarkably, Thomas still believes his invitation is in the mail.
“She’s clearly forgotten her roots. It’s torn my entire family apart,” Thomas recently told The Daily Mail.
“Meg likes to portray herself as a humanitarian, a people’s person and a charitable person but she is none of those things to her family.”
Thomas went on to claim that Meghan is a master con artist who has successfully pulled the wool over the Royal Family’s eyes:
“She is giving the greatest performance of her life. She is acting phony,” Thomas says.
“I’ve read that Meg wants to be like Diana. Diana was worshipped by everyone in the world. She was loved for the right reasons. That’s what Meg wants, but I don’t think that’s going to happen. She’s not genuine like Diana.”
At this stage, we’d like to remind you that despite repeatedly trashing his half-sister in the press, Thomas Markle still believes he’ll be rubbing elbows with royalty next month:
“I haven’t got an invite yet but I do expect to get one,” he said.
“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.’
Markle Jr’s ex-wife Tracey Dooley and son Tyler, 26, have already spoken with the press and revealed that they were snubbed.
They might want to have a talk with Thomas and help him manage his expectations.
