Meghan Markle's estranged father has spoken of his desire to have been at Archie's christening as he wished his grandson nothing but 'health and happiness'.

Thomas Markle, 74, has never met his son-in-law Prince Harry and was not invited to today's christening at Windsor Castle.

He said he would have enjoyed being at the celebration because he has been a member of the Anglican Church since childhood, describing it as the 'Queen's church'.

His former wife Doria Ragland, Meghan's mother, was pictured in the official photograph released today as one of the select few guests invited to the ceremony.

Speaking from his home in Rosarito Beach, Mexico, the retired Hollywood lighting director 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.

Mr Markle missed last year's Royal Wedding after suffering two heart attacks. He also fell out with his daughter and Harry when he admitted posing for paparazzi pictures in a misguided attempt to change his 'schlubby' image.

Mr Markle claimed he only allowed the photographs to be taken because he was left unable to fend for himself against an onslaught of global media attention.

Since then, he has repeatedly apologised for the pictures but the hoped-for rapprochement with his daughter has failed to materialise. Mr Markle has continued to attempt to heal the rift but without success, and has criticised the couple for van phong pham refusing to speak to him or return his telephone calls.
