In an interview around the time of Meghan and Harry's wedding, Mike expressed his disappointment over not being invited to the wedding.

Despite suffering from Parkinson's Disease and a frail heart, Mike told the paper he "absolutely" would have travelled to England to walk his niece down the aisle when Thomas announced he himself wasn't fit to make the trip.

He said: "I thought I would [get an invitation], but anyhow, I didn't hear from her."
