Meghan Markle’s brother has revealed that her royal wedding snub has “torn the family apart'”.
Thomas Jnr, 51, who is the American actress’ half-brother, claims the 36-year-old has forgotten her roots by refusing to invite close relatives as she prepare to tie the knot with Prince Harry.
He accused his sibling of turning her back on the family and said she is ‘falsely’ trying to portray herself as the new Princess Diana, according to the Daily Mail.
He told the Daily Mirror: “She’s clearly forgotten her roots. It’s torn my entire family apart. 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. She is acting phoney. I’ve read that Meg wants to be like Diana”.
Mr Markle has not seen his sister since 2011 when the pair – and Meghan’s film producer ex Trevor Engleson, 41 – attended the Los Angeles funeral of their grandmother, Doris.
But speaking exclusively to DailyMailTV last month, the 51-year-old said: “I haven’t got an invite yet but I do expect to get one. 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.”
