Thomas Markle was disappointed he was not invited to his grandsons christening.

The 74-year-old said he would have liked it if his daughter Meghan Markle had asked him to come to the private ceremony at Windsor Castle today.

Mr Markle, speaking from Rosarito Beach, Mexico, where he lives, told The Mail on Sunday: I have been asked if I would have liked to have gone to Britain to see my new grandson being christened.

I was an altar boy at age 12, a confirmed member of the Queens church at age 14, and Archie is my new grandson, so of course I would have enjoyed being there for the blessing, wishing Archie and his parents health and happiness.

It was unlikely he would have got an invite after falling out with his daughter following her wedding to Prince Harry last year.

Retired Hollywood lighting director Mr Markle, who missed the nuptials after having two heart attacks, angered Meghan when he posed for paparazzi pictures.
