Why Meghan Markle’s family isn’t invited to her wedding
The royal family is marked by its enormous wealth, even if the queen appeared to be burning through funds in 2014, and the Duchess of York had some $6 million in unpaid debts looming over her head. If that situation with the duchess “deeply concerned” the queen, Meghan’s family situation may be considered a full-on national emergency.
Though Meghan supposedly has a net worth of about $5 million, her family’s financial status is not nearly as healthy. According to the New Zealand Herald, Meghan’s father, Thomas Wayne Markle, had about $216 in his savings when he filed for bankruptcy in 2017, and Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, filed for bankruptcy in 2002, right around the time her daughter launched her acting career. Ragland reportedly had about $58,000 in credit card debt at the time. Meghan’s half-brother, Thomas Markle Jr., supposively had about 10 bucks to his name and roughly $97,000 in debts when he filed for bankruptcy in 2013. Meghan’s half-sister, Samantha Grant, filed for bankruptcy in 2003, along with her second ex-husband.
You get the idea.
