Thomas Markle, the estranged father of the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle has spoken out about not being invited to his grandson, Archie's christening.

Meghan's mother, his former wife Doria Ragland, was seen in the official photograph released and was obviously invited to the ceremony in addition to Prince Charles and wife Camilla Parker Bowles. Prince William and Kate Middleton were also in attendance, as well as Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Lady Jane Fellowes, the sisters of Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana. She also attended Meghan's wedding to Prince Harry and spent time with the family over Christmas.

"I have been asked if I would have liked to have gone to Britain to see my new grandson being christened," Mr. Markle told the Daily Mail.

"I was an altar boy at age 12, a confirmed member of the Queen's church at age 14, and Archie is my new grandson, so of course I would have enjoyed being there for the blessing, wishing Archie and his parents health and happiness."

Once again, we feel that Mr. Markle may get invited to more Royal events if he would just stop talking to the media.

Following the private ceremony, which took place at Windsor Castle, Meghan, 37, and husband Prince Harry, 34, released a few photos from the intimate affair on Instagram.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are so happy to share the joy of this day with members of the public who have been incredibly supportive since the birth of their son,” the caption stated.
