Meghan Markle's Half-Brother Thomas Arrested for Drunk Driving

Meghan Markle’s half-brother Thomas arrested in Oregon

A report from Daily Mail says the top female officer - the first woman to ever work as a key security officer for the Royals - is leaving Scotland Yard.

Despite the warning letter, Thomas recently told DailyMail.com he planned to invite the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to his own wedding in March, when he plans to Wednesday Darlene Blount in Reno or Las Vegas.

The blond bodyguard gained some prominence in royal watchers' eyes during Markle and Prince Harry's trip to Australia, Fiji and Tonga, when the guard had to intervene due to crowd management concerns. "Even though [Meghan] was a famous actress, she could still do what she wanted in the way of getting around freely".

"But in her current role she can't go anywhere without her protection team, and that's a massive constraining force on an individual like her", the source added.

Meghan's personal assistant Melissa Touabti left her role after just six months, although the reasons for quitting are still unclear.

E! News can confirm the 52-year-old was arrested for a DUI in the wee hours of Friday morning in OR, as first reported by TMZ.

Meghan Markle's half-brother Thomas Markle Jr. is making headlines again, but this time it isn't for their family feud.

He was given a field sobriety test and blew "well over the legal limit" in a breath test.

Days before the wedding, Mr Markle urged Prince Harry to cancel his wedding, claiming it would be the "biggest mistake in royal wedding history".

And it seems she's gone to great lengths to welcome both Kate and Meghan into one of the world's best known families.
