Meghan Markle's half brother Thomas Markle Jr. doesn't want this two sons to attend her wedding to Prince Harry because he doesn't consider them to be "Markle's"

The former 'Suits' star is set to tie the knot with the 33-year-old royal at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle in England in May, but her estranged sibling doesn't believe his sons Thomas, 26, and Tyler, 25, should have anything to do with the couple's big day as he claims Meghan hasn't seen his boys since they were babies.

He also alleges that Thomas and Tyler's mother Tracy Dooley - who he got divorced from in 18 years ago - didn't want to use the family's surname before now.

He told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: "Tracy [Thomas and Tyler's mother] and me stopped living as man and wife three months into the marriage because the relationship was such a disaster.

"She never wanted the Markle name when we were married and now suddenly she acts like she's still part of the family.

"I don't want her to have anything to do with us and the boys shouldn't go along with it. They shouldn't be at the wedding either.

"Both boys were always Dooleys as kids. I got sick of making the name an issue with Tracy and ultimately she had her way. They're Dooleys. You cannot pick and choose when you're a Markle."

On the fact he doesn't consider his own sons and their mother to be worthy of sharing his name, he added: "It's got to stop. The boys were babies when they met Meghan last and Tracy has never even met Meghan, ever.

"I don't believe Tracy or my sons have the right to call themselves Markles. If this embarrasses Meghan then I am sorry, but Tracy can't go on claiming to be a Markle."
