When you’re not invited to a party, the expected thing to do would be to sweep it under the rug and avoid all sorts of attention. That’s not the case for Meghan Markle’s nephew and his mom, who decided to make an appearance on “Good Morning Britain” to express their feelings through broadcast TV.
In the world’s most awkward interview, Tyler and Tracy Dooley confirmed that they are not among the 600 guests of the royal wedding.

Both tried to be as positive as possible, with Tyler saying “You never know” with regards to the wedding invitation, and with both claiming that they supported Markle and that they were extremely happy for her. Dooley claimed that he and his mom had “been here from the very beginning, I mean, her whole life, just always rooting her on, and supporting her.” That’s totally not passive aggressive at all.
According to Mashable, it was revealed later on the show that Tyler hasn’t spoken to Markle in three years, and that Tracy hasn’t had contact with her in over 20 years. The host was shocked when he heard this, claiming that they couldn’t really expect to be invited to a wedding if they hadn’t had any recent contact with Markle. Yup, that’s what logic would say. Still, someone has to take advantage of those 15 minutes of fame.
