MEGHAN MARKLE’s half brother Thomas Markle Jnr starred in a beer commercial that has mocked the Queen and the royal household, including the Duchess, in a way that could infuriate the Palace.
In the advert, filmed in the US, the Duchess of Sussex’ half-brother Thomas Markle Jnr. is caught sneaking into a mock up of Buckingham Palace to steal the Crown Jewels. The police instruct him: “In the name of the Queen, drop everything”. But, he refuses and replies, “I’d rather die than drop my [New York beer].”
He’s chased. The fake bobbies then guzzle down the remaining suds.
At the end of the advert an actress impersonates Meghan Markle, she is wearing a black suit, white coat, tiara and wig, and Meghan’s look-alike asks, “Got the crown?”
Racing into the back seat of a black Rolls Royce Mr Markle Jnr. says, “No, I got something better.”
They clink bottles and she tells the driver to go.
On the set, Thomas Markle Jnr. said: “Our father’s the one got Meghan to where she was in Hollywood.
“He was her career’s biggest supporter, but once she got on ‘Suits,’ she distanced herself from the entire family and acted like she’s better than any of us.”
This comes amid news that Meghan Markle’s half-brother has pleaded with the Duchess of Sussex to end her bitter feud with her family.
Thomas Markle Jnr, 53, claimed his sister is only living the royal life because their father Thomas Markle, 75, bankrolled her education and lavish lifestyle.
The window fitter from Oregon said Meghan did not even reach out to her father after his health-scare last December, and called on the 38-year-old to “put things right before it’s too late”.
Thomas Markle Jnr told the MailOnline: “I hope Meghan gets in contact but my dad needs to prepare himself for it never happening.
“But what she needs to remember is that she is only in Buckingham Palace with Harry because of her dad.
“He paid for her education and fancy clothes. He helped her become the exceptional woman she is and I beg her to recognise that.”
The 53-year-old who was also not invited to Meghan and Prince Harry’s wedding in May 2018, admitted he is also to blame for the breakdown of their relationship.
Thomas Markle Snr had two children with his wife of 11 years Roslyn Loveless; Thomas Markle Jnr and Samantha Markle now 54.
Thomas Markle Snr later married Doria Ragland in 1979, who gave birth to Meghan two years later in 1981.
Thomas Markle Jnr said: “I have been a bad son and a bad brother to Meg.
“I just want to put things right before it’s too late.
“I’ve had no business making things worse between him, Meghan and Harry, and I want us all, but especially them, to be a proper family and reconcile.”
Meghan’s father now lives alone in Rosarito, Mexico, and last month admitted he is yet to see his grandson Archie, who was born on May 6.
In a heartfelt interview, Meghan’s father said he wanted to see if Archie had the “famous Markle nose”.
The former lighting director said during Meghan’s childhood the pair were “so close” and called on his daughter to send a picture of Archie.
He said: “We were so close. I would come home from work and I would hold her against my chest and we would walk around for hours and hours.
