How sweet! Meghan Markle has reportedly invited her father, Thomas Markle Sr., to her upcoming royal wedding with Prince Harry. And even though he’s never been to England (and as far as we know has yet to meet his future son-in-law), he’s allegedly “overjoyed” that he was invited.

“Thomas Markle Sr. is overjoyed to be beside his little girl on the day she becomes a princess — even if he has to battle his demons to get there,” a source recently told The Sun. “He’s not exactly thrilled at facing the world’s glare. But nothing will stop him from having Meghan on his arm for the big day.” The publication also reported that Meghan’s dad “lives a reclusive life in Mexico.”

It was previously reported that Thomas and Meghan’s mom, Doria Ragland, would be traveling to the UK to attend their daughter’s baptism in early March, however, neither of them seemingly attended the religious event.

There’s also been a lot of drama with Meghan’s half-sister, Samantha Grant (she’s reportedly not even invited to the wedding). In a previous social media rant, she claimed that their dad will walk Meghan down the aisle contrary to reports that her mother would be the one. “Muck about Doria walking Meg down the aisle is NOT true. Our father will walk her down the aisle,” she wrote on Twitter.

Sweetly enough, Meghan wants her dad to be the one to walk her down the aisle anyway. “She’s told Harry that she wants her dad to walk her down the aisle. Harry is totally supportive and will go along with whatever Meghan wants, even if the palace might not like it,” a source told Life & Style. We can’t wait to see pics of Meghan at her dad from the royal wedding!
