The Markle family has certainly gained a lot of media attention after Meghan became engaged to Prince Harry. Many still speculate about which members of the family will be attending the royal wedding, but we already know someone who's definitely not going.

Meghan Markle's half-brother on her dad's side of the family, Thomas Jr., is one with the worst reputation in the family. Last year, he was arrested for allegedly putting a gun to his girlfriend's head during an argument. Thomas Jr. announced he's sorry and will be getting help.

But Thomas Jr.'s problems with the law aren't the only reason he didn't receive an invitation. Reportedly, Meghan isn't a fan of him talking too much with the press. "If he would quit talking to the media, Meghan would probably be more into the idea of inviting him," a source said.

Royal wedding snub

So, guess what was Thomas Jr.'s response to nor being invited to the wedding for talking to much to the media? He talked to the media!

Thomas Markle Jr. gave an extended interview about how not being invited to Meghan's wedding affects his family.

He revealed that Meghan Markle has distanced herself from the family back when she started filming her hit TV show Suits. Thomas Jr. claimed that the last time he has seen her was when she moved to Toronto.

She is giving the greatest ­performance of her life. She is acting phoney. Once she got into Hollywood she turned into a different person. She’s clearly forgotten her roots and her family.

According to the actress' brother, she's different from how she wants the public to see her. He accused for trying to be the next Princess Diana, which he scoffs upon, because he doesn't believe it's possible.

I’ve read that Meg wants to be like Diana. Diana was worshipped by everyone in the world. She was loved for the right reasons. That’s what Meg wants, but I don’t think that’s going to happen. She’s not genuine like Diana.

It seems that not receiving a wedding invitation has hit the family really hard, as Thomas Jr. said he is 'baffled' by the fact. He claims that they used to be very close before Meghan found fame in Hollywood, and he's hurt by this situation.

Meghan's brother tried to reunite with her and even contacted the Buckingham Palace but heard nothing back.

In addition, Thomas Jr. pointed out that he defended Meghan when his sister Samantha Markle gave negative remarks about the future princess back in October. She claimed that Meghan had always pursued royal status, even before she met Harry. Thomas Jr. said this was the beginning of their family's end, and the arguments and disappointments tore them apart. And now, he's going down the same slippery slope.

By now, Meghan's half-brother mostly accepted not being invited to the wedding, but he urges Meghan to ask their dad to give her away. So far, there has been no solid confirmation that Thomas Markle will walk his daughter down the aisle.

More negative feedback

This week, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been attending the Commonwealth Youth Forum. They have been meeting delegates and socially active youth as part of the event. The palace has been actively promoting the couple's humanitarian work on Twitter, but it caught the wrong attention. Samantha Markle, Meghan's sister, wasn't thrilled about the news.

It seems that everything Meghan does will get a bitter response from her family. Oh well, you can't win them all, can you?
