Her half-sister and half-brother have already lashed out at the star for being shunned from her wedding and now Meghan Markle’s uncle has spoken out.

Michael Markle, who is the brother of Meghan Markle’s father, Thomas Markle, told the Express he couldn’t understand why his niece has decided to leave him off the guest list.

Michael said he helped Meghan out with an internship when she was an aspiring actress and ‘didn’t ask for anything in return’.

“I don’t understand why she has been so indifferent towards me,” Michael said.

“It’s uncalled for. I helped her out, and I didn’t ask for anything in return.

“I’m upset and surprised about not being selected, but if they don’t want me there, then I don’t want to go.”

Michael is just one in a string of relatives who have been royally shunned from Meghan Markle’s big day with Prince Harry on May 19th.

The former Suits actress’s half-sister, Samantha Markle, aksi dudn’t get an invite in the post.

“The Markle family is looking forward to our wedding invites,” she wrote on Twitterat the beginning of this month.

“No-one has one yet. Still waiting. I hope London is wheelchair friendly. Excited!”

“At issue is not a matter of closeness as more than 1000 complete strangers are invited. Family is family,” she said.

However, fans of the star were quick to point out that the sisters haven’t in fact spoken in years and wondered why Samantha was so sure she would be invited.

“Out of respect, tradition, and humanitarianism, the #Markles should be invited,” Samantha wrote.

“Our uncle who got her the internship, brother, me, best friend of 30 years Nikki Priddy, nephews. Fact.”

Not everyone has been excluded from the guest list, as Meghan’s beloved mother Doria will be present on the day.

It’s also expected that Meghan’s proud father will walk her down the aisle at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor.
