Meghan Markle remains estranged from her paternal family, even after the birth and christening of her and Prince Harry's son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

Thomas Markle revealed to The Daily Mail that he wasn't invited to Archie's private christening this weekend, though Duchess Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, was in attendance.

"I have been asked if I would have liked to have gone to Britain to see my new grandson being christened," Thomas, 74, said in an interview published Sunday. "I was an altar boy at age 12, a confirmed member of the Queen's 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."

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle Celebrate Canada Day With Instagram Post It’s Canada Day and as such, it’s the perfect time to remind all royal watchers in this fair Commonwealth country that Meghan and Harry love and miss Canadians, and that baby varsity jackets will never not be adorable. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex shared a message on their Instagram account early Monday, just in time for Canadians to rise, shine and celebrate the country’s 152nd birthday — and to “like” Harry and Meghan’s post: View this post

The Daily Mail reports that though Thomas was raised Anglican, Duchess Meghan wasn't baptized as a child because Ragland didn't share Thomas' religious beliefs. Thomas and Ragland wed at the Self-Realization Fellowship Temple in Los Angeles.

The Temple reportedly follows the teachings of guru Paramahansa Yogananda, who endorses yoga and deep breathing to achieve spiritual enlightenment.

Duchess Meghan, 37, was baptized in the Church of England before her royal wedding to Prince Harry.

This morning, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was christened in the Private Chapel at Windsor Castle at an intimate service officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are so happy to share the joy of this day with members of the public who have been incredibly supportive since the birth of their son. They thank you for your kindness in welcoming their first born and celebrating this special moment. Their Royal Highnesses feel fortunate to have enjoyed this day with family and the godparents of Archie. Their son, Archie, was baptised wearing the handmade replica of the royal christening gown which has been worn by royal infants for the last 11 years. The original Royal Christening Robe, made of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin, was commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1841 and first worn by her eldest daughter. It was subsequently worn for generations of Royal christenings, including The Queen, her children and her grandchildren until 2004, when The Queen commissioned this handmade replica, in order for the fragile historic outfit to be preserved, and for the tradition to continue.

Duchess Meghan has been estranged from her father since he missed her and Prince Harry's wedding and repeatedly spoke about the Sussexes to the press. Thomas reportedly claimed he hasn't been able to reach Duchess Meghan, alleging that she is in a "cone of silence" among the royals.
