According to Meghan Markle’s stepsister, Samantha Markle, Meghan’s family are yet to get an invite to the royal wedding which will take place next month.
Even Meghan Markle’s dad Thomas Markle, who will reportedly walk Meghan down the aisle as she weds Prince Harry, still has not received an invite to the royal wedding. Samantha Markle says none of Meghan’s family from her father’s side have received an invite.

The invites and RSVPs for Harry and Meghan’s 19 May wedding were posted at the end of the last month, going to 600 guests and a further 2,640 members of the public. Many have since come forward to share their shock and excitement at their invitation. And while it was confirmed this week that no political or world leaders are getting a seat in the chapel, it appears none of her US family have either.
Samantha announced this on Twitter, writing: “The Markle family is looking forward to our wedding invites. No one has one yet. Still waiting. I hope London is wheelchair friendly. Excited!”
Samantha, who uses a wheelchair after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2008, also updated her Twitter profile picture to throwback photos of her and Meghan when they were both growing up.
She went on to reveal that she and other members of the family were preparing for the wedding, though they have not been invited.
She wrote: “Well everyone is making arrangements and it’s difficult to organize everything as you can imagine.”
