Speaking to the Daily Mail, Meghan's big brother - who is marrying his fiancée, Darlene Blount in America - revealed that he'd sent an official wedding invitation to Meghan, 37, and her husband, Prince Harry.

Thomas, 52, confirmed he hoped "our wedding will bring the family closer together".

He added: "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 window-fitter continued: "Starting out the New Year by bringing our family closer together is definitely on the to-do list — it's very important."

He continued that his big day "would be a perfect time for Meg to get together with my dad... and just put all the past behind everybody and move on and be a closer family again. My dad would really enjoy that."
