Ar­rested brother’s apol­ogy to Duchess

Daily Express - - News -

MEGHAN Markle’s half-brother has said sorry to the Duchess after a bust-up saw him held on sus­pi­cion of drink-driv­ing.

Thomas Markle Jnr, 52, who has the same fa­ther as the Duchess of Sus­sex, was caught be­hind the wheel of his truck at 1.33am on Fri­day.

Markle blamed fail­ing a road­side so­bri­ety test on med­i­ca­tion for leg pain. He can­not af­ford a doc­tor.

The job­less win­dow fit­ter re­vealed that a row with fi­ancee Dar­lene Blount, 38, over re­fus­ing to leave a fruit ma­chine in a bar made him flee their house in Grants Pass, Ore­gon. “I didn’t want things to es­ca­late… It was why I was on the road so late.”

The cou­ple have vowed to give up booze after sev­eral bust-ups.

“I am gen­uinely sorry for this shame this has brought on my fam­ily, and I hope they, as well as Meghan, can for­give me,” Markle said.
