When Meghan Markle married Prince Harry last month, her father was not in attendance.

It’s still not entirely clear why Thomas Markle chose to stay home rather than watch his daughter become freakin’ royalty, but not surprisingly, it seems he now regrets the decision.

It seems Thomas has been shut out by the royals, and he’s not happy about it.

Of course, that could have something to do with his decision to live-chat with TMZ during his daughter’s nuptials.

Apparently, he’s particularly pissed after learning that Queen Elizabeth II will be sitting down for bunless Big Macs with our wacky commander-in-chief, Donald Trump.

“If the Queen is willing to meet our arrogant, ignorant, and insensitive president, she has no excuse not to meet me.” Thomas recently told TMZ.

“I’m nowhere near as bad.” 

But, bruh … you totally had a chance to meet her, and you decided to stay home and Skype with Harvey Levin instead.

Plus, if your argument is that you’re “not as bad” as Donald John Trump, you’re already starting from a losing position.

And as repugnant as Donnie might be, you’ve got to admit that he’s a tad more accomplished than you are, Tom.

Your main point is along the lines of “I didn’t kill nearly as many people as Stalin, but he gets to be in the history books while I’m just frightening people on this public bus?! Absurd, I say!”

Anyway, Thomas says the reason he’s being shut out is that he gave a TV interview Good Morning Britain, best known on this side of the pond as the show that keeps Piers Morgan semi-relevant.

In the interview, Thomas maintained that it was his health that kept him at home.

“The doctors said,’ This is what doctors call the widow maker,'” he said about his heart condition.

“It would have killed me.”

There are those who doubt Thomas’ version of events and feel that he actually remained in the States as a result of his embarrassment over a bizarre mini-scandal involving the sale of paparazzi photos.

Whatever the case, it seems that if given the chance, Thomas would do things very differently.

“I’m a footnote in one of the greatest moments in history rather than the dad walking her down the aisle…So, that upsets me somewhat,” he noted.

“I regretted it because I really wanted to walk my daughter down the aisle…I wanted that moment. But I’m thankful for everything the way it went.”

The English are said to be particularly upset about the snub due to the fact that they named their muffins after him.

Folks, we’ll be here all week.
