As of this week however, the 51-year-old has changed his stance on the royal. In fact, he is getting married, and he would love for Prince Harry and Meghan to attend.
Yes, really. Thomas Markle Junior wants to put water under the bridge and invite the royals to his March nuptials.
To be clear, his wedding to girlfriend Darlene Blount after two years together is also rumoured to see the groom sky dive into the ceremony dressed as Elvis so maybe they are setting their expectations a little high.
‘I think our wedding will bring the family closer together,’ Thomas told The Daily Mail, explaining that he had invited the Duchess of Sussex. ‘It’s hopeful that if Meghan and Harry came and my father, Meghan and Harry could spend some time together with him and that would be good.’
We think Thomas might be waiting a while for that RSVP, especially given the fact that the Duchess is estranged from the groom, with a source telling PEOPLE that she has ‘no relationship with her half-siblings, nor has she ever had one.’
Still, never say never.
