Who is Meghan Markle's Uncle Mike?

Mike Markle, from Florida, is Meghan's dad Thomas's brother.

He and his brother Fred have given up hope that they will have the relationship with their niece she married Harry.

He told the Daily Mail: "I don't understand her, the way she's treated her family. I'm not very fond of it."

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."

Discussing his brother, Mike added: "I talk to Fred once a month. Our relationship is strong, he never changes. We don't talk about things to do with Meghan anymore."

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