Thomas Markle is speaking out about his Sussex grandchildren Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet Diana, whom he has never met, not being able to take part in their royal roots.

"It struck me as very sad that Meghan and Harry’s kids are being denied the right to know their cousins, who look like fantastic children, or take part in things like Trooping the Colour, which is their birthright," the former Married... with Children technician told an outlet.

"They are getting to the age where they will start to ask questions, as all kids do," he added. "I find myself wondering how Archie and Lilbet will feel in a few years' time when they realize all the things they have missed out on."

Archie left with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex during "Megxit" in early 2020, when he was yet 1-year-old. Princess Lilibet met with King Charles III (while Prince of Wales) and the late Queen Elizabeth II in June 2022, shortly after her first birthday and Archie's third. It is believed that neither child has been back in Britain since, and the Wales kids only know them through the media.

"They're first cousins, and he doesn't know them. I don't think Harry makes the final decision on that," veteran royal photographer Arthur Edwards dished. "I suspect he's probably in discussions with Meghan. I don't think she's ever going to come here again. If she does, I don't know when that's likely. Certainly, those children are grandchildren of the King. They've got royal titles now. One's a prince, the other's a princess."

King Charles III has reportedly 'barely seen' his Sussex grandchildren.

Archie and Lilibet automatically became styled as prince and princess within the instant moment King Charles acceded to the throne, which could have exposed the pair in a lie from their Oprah interview. They insinuated to the former chat show host in the 2021 sit-down that there was some palace coup in play to prevent their children from being titled. Neither could hold those titles during Elizabeth II's reign due to a 1917 Letters Patent.

Edwards continued: "They should be more respectful. Certainly, Harry should bring them to see the King whenever he can. So far, he comes alone and he goes quickly. He's no longer a member of the royal family. He's made it his intention that he doesn't want to be. I don't know how long that's going on for.”

Thomas Markle said he has not spoken to Prince Archie or Princess Lilibet Diana.

Although the world-famous King has only "rarely" glimpsed his Sussex grandchildren, other sources are quick to highlight how the California-raised prince and princess' maternal grandfather has "never once seen or spoken to them."
