“He was always happy to be asked about Meghan, but whenever he spoke to anyone he mainly wanted to talk about his late wife – he loved her so much.”
A source said Mike was “very proud” of Meghan, but wish he had the chance to meet Harry.
They said: “He was quite well known in his community for being Meghan’s uncle, and he would always stop for a chat to say how proud he was of her even though he didn’t often agree with how she went about things.
“He would usually just chuckle and say, ‘It’s not every day you have a prince in the family, though, I suppose!'”
When Meghan and her father became estranged Mike lost contact with Meghan over the years after the royal wedding.
A source said Mike “wasn’t a fan how they’d iced out her dad.”
The source continued: “I know he was disappointed not to be invited to the wedding – he knew that a lot of the family wouldn’t be, but he held out hope that since he shaped her formative years by getting her that internship in Buenos Aires at the embassy, she might see fit to invite him.
“He wasn’t well enough to travel even back then, but it would have been nice for him to know he was loved and appreciated by the niece he helped so much when she was just starting out.”
It upset Mike when he wasn’t invited to attend the wedding…
He said: “I thought I would [get an invitation], but anyhow, I didn’t hear from her.”
Mike recently branded her a “prima donna” as he felt she ditched her family after becoming a royal.
He said: “Meghan has climbed socially and left us behind — that’s how I feel.
“I think that’s what happens when you’re ‘underclass’ and trying to rise above the reality of your situation.”
In Meghan’s earlier years, Mike helped secure her an internship as a junior press officer in the American embassy, as he worked as a U.S diplomat…
