He hasn't seen the Duchess since before her wedding. He couldn't walk her down the aisle as he underwent surgery a week before the wedding.

The family has also been torn apart by Meghan's half-sister Samantha Markle, who keeps bad-mouthing Meghan in the media.
Apart from discussing Harry's political views in controversial interviews, he also sold staged photos to the media despite Harry's warning about the paparazzi.

"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."
The couple plans to hold the wedding in either Reno or Las Vegas and said his father would really enjoy seeing Meghan again.
