Meghan Markle's half-brother Thomas has been arrested by police in the United States for drink driving.

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. "It's hopeful that if Meghan and Harry came and my father, Meghan and Harry could spend some time together with him and that would be good".

The Duchess of Sussex's dad, who has been hitting headlines for months now due to his comments about his daughter cutting him out of her life, told TMZ: "My son has a serious problem and he needs help, and I hope he gets it".

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