Meghan Markle's cousin sends a letter to Prince Harry, asking for a personal favor for her family
Meghan Markle’s relationship with her paternal family has never been good. It doesn’t mean they don’t want to be invited to the Royal wedding, though.
Since the ceremony will take place on May 19, 2018, and any member of the Markle family has received their invitation yet, one of her cousins, Trish Gallup, sent a letter to Prince Harry.
According to Express, Gallup’s letter had photos of the family celebrating the 65th birthday of their grandmother Doris in 2000 and an invitation request. The fact that Harry has not replied yet makes her and her family feel ‘saddened and hurt.’
Gallup added that it is not clear whether Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle, will walk her down the aisle for the wedding at Windsor Castle or if her mother will do it.
She added that she has done everything to try to reach Meghan or Harry, but it has been impossible. After the first letter, Gallup sent another one via FedEx to ‘make sure it arrived.’
A couple of days later, the company contacted her and told her that it had been turned away because the Palace was not allowed to accept unwarranted packages.
After all her attempts to talk to them, Gallup has finally accepted they will not be invited. She blamed Meghan’s sister, Samantha Grant, as she wrote and released a tell-all book about her life.
Gallup understands that the couple doesn’t want to be embarrassed in the most important day of their lives by inviting people who have been mean to them, but confessed that she would have liked to give Meghan her good wishes.
Even her 78-year-old uncle, Michael, shared his thoughts about the family feud. He considered that her father should be the one who walks her down the aisle and admitted he and Thomas had a conversation recently.
‘He’s very private, but I don’t see how you can be the father of the bride and be a shrinking violet. I think he has to step up and I think he’s willing to do that.’
