He was described as being visibly intoxicated and well over the legal limit, the site claims.

Thomas Markle Jr. has been arrested for drunk driving - just days after announcing his recent engagement, PEOPLE confirms. He was taken into custody after failing a field sobriety test and blowing a.11.

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's brother famously wrote an open letter to Prince Harry before the royal wedding to tell him "It's not too late".

Meghan is not now in contact with her half-brother, father Thomas Markle Sr or half-sister Samantha Markle.

The duchess is reportedly estranged from her father's family. A second moaned: "Put his name in the headline and leave hers out of it, she has nothing to do with it".

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Meghan's big brother - who is marrying his fiancée, Darlene Blount in March - revealed that he'd sent an official wedding invitation to Meghan and Harry. "The fact that she's not doing that, I think, speaks volumes about how she really does feel about her family and how she wants to separate from them", Mollard said. "It's helpful that if Meghan and Harry came and my father".

Meghan Markle's half-sister, Samantha Markle, has been dubbed as an attention-seeking hanger-on by Australian royal commentators.
