Meghan Markle’s Brother’s Fiancee Arrested For Allegedly Assaulting Him

Meghan Markle Future Sister In Law Arrested

Will Meghan Markle’s family be a royal pain for Prince Harry? As the former Suits star and Harry plan their May wedding, her troubled family caused embarrassment as it was revealed Meghan’s brother’s fiancée, Darlene Blount, was arrested on New Year’s eve in Oregon after an altercation with Thomas Markle.

As the Daily Mail reported, a law enforcement source with the Josephine County Jail said that Thomas’ fiancée “Darlene Blount was booked on January 1st. She was charged with fourth degree assault.”

Blount, 37, the woman who could be Meghan and Harry’s future sister-in-law, was reportedly arrested just before midnight on New Year and was booked around 4:20 am, after an alleged boozy altercation with Thomas, 51.

Meanwhile, Harry, 33, and Meghan, 36, celebrated the New Year with a getaway to the French Riviera! According to reports, Meghan and her Prince flew out of London on New Year’s Eve on a scheduled British Airways flight to Nice—with three bodyguards in tow.

It’s a far cry from the New Year’s meltdown involving Meghan’s brother Thomas, who hasn’t seen or spoken to his half-sister since 2011.

Thomas told the Daily Mail that he and Meghan are not estranged but lost touch after she moved to Toronto, Canada, to star on Suits.

“She got to the point where she got busier and busier so it was really hard to nail her down. It’s not really that we grew apart, it was she was out there [in Toronto] doing her job – it was the biggest deal she got on TV so she had no time,” he said.

While Thomas doesn’t expect to be invited to Meghan and Harry’s royal wedding, he recently said he’d love to attend. However, following his galpal’s arrest—and his own previous trouble with the law, (charges were dropped) an invite will likely NOT be forthcoming!

As Radar has reported, Thomas recently said that Meghan’s father Thomas Sr., 73, was “extremely hurt” over Prince Harry’s recent comments about the actress having a fantastic Christmas with the royal family.

Meghan Markle Looks Unrecognizable In Never-Before-Seen Holiday Photo

Meghan Markle has come a long way and as RadarOnline.com’s exclusive photo proves, like every woman, she had an awkward phase.

Prince Harry‘s future fiancée Markle is about 13 years old in the picture in which she stood in front of a relative’s Christmas tree.

Her life back then was vastly different from this year, when the 36-year-old former Suits star spent Christmas with Britain’s royal family!

But the photo, taken several years after her parents Doria Ragland and Thomas Markle Sr. divorced, shows that she always loved the camera.

Markle has said that she adores Christmas, which she previously spent in her native Los Angeles. “Christmas in my hometown of LA is just the ultimate,” she said back in 2015.

Her favorite festive customs included leaving Santa a glass of red wine and a beautiful handwritten note, and making blueberry cornmeal pancakes.

But the ex-actress pushed those rituals aside in order to adopt the long-standing traditions of the royals.

Markle, the first non-married partner to be invited to Sandringham estate, enjoyed a three-day celebration including a congregation at St. Mary Magdalene church, the exchange of gag gifts, games and a traditional turkey lunch.

With her wedding to Harry set for May 19, 2018, Markle’s Christmases to come will continue to revolve around the royal family.

“Meghan absolutely lives for Christmas, and has done ever since she was a child,” a family told Radar.

“She loves giving gifts, writing cards, cooking and being with the people she loves, so it’s no surprise that it’s a favorite holiday of hers. This year will be extra special. Not just because she’s spending it as part of the royal family, but because she’ll get to be with Harry!”

Meghan’s Estranged Sister Bashes Prince Harry After Royal Holiday: She Has A Family!

Meghan Markle Sister Bashes Prince Harry Family

Following the Christmas celebrations, Prince Harry told fans that the royals were like the family Meghan Markle never had – and now the actress’ estranged sister Samantha Grant is firing back!

“The family loved having [Meghan] there,” said Prince Harry, 33, to Radio 4 listeners after the Holidays. “There’s always that family part of Christmas (where) there’s always that work element there as well, and I think together we had an amazing time. We had great fun staying with my brother and sister-in-law and running round with the kids. Christmas was fantastic.”

Speaking of how nicely Meghan, 36, is getting along with the family and how well she’s already begun executing her new royal duties, Harry added: “She’s done an absolutely amazing job. She’s getting in there and it’s the family I suppose that she’s never had.”

After the Prince’s comments, Samantha became livid, blasting him for saying his fiancée didn’t have a family before him.

Actually she [Meghan] has a large family who were always there with her and for her,” she wrote on Twitter. “Our household was very normal and when dad and Doria divorced, we all made it so it was like she had two houses.”

“No one was estranged, she was just too busy,” Samantha said, following rumors that she and Meghan are not the closest of siblings.

“Meg’s family (our family) is complete with sister, brother, aunts, uncles, cousins, and the glue of our family, our amazing completely self-sacrificing father. She always had this family… Marrying merely extends it,” she fired at Harry.

“She has a large family. She always did. Our dad is amazing and completely self sacrificing. We made it so that she had two houses. How fun it was!” Samantha concluded.

Prince Harry Won’t Hunt Animals Because Meghan Markle Disapproves

Prince Harry Won't Hunt Meghan Markle Animal Rights

Prince Harry‘s fiancée Meghan Markle has had quite the influence on him already!

As The Sun reported, Harry is skipping the traditional Boxing Day, Dec. 26, hunting spree with the other royals so he doesn’t upset Markle, a noted animal lover.

A source told The Sun, “The Boxing Day shoot was always going to be a tricky issue [for Harry]. Meghan is a keen animal rights campaigner and doesn’t like hunting in any form.

“Harry loves it and has always been out there on Boxing Day. But if it means breaking with long-standing royal traditions to avoid upsetting her, so be it,” the source said.

If Markle was “not comfortable” with Harry taking part, he “wouldn’t want to upset her,” according to the insider.

Now, Prince Charles and Prince William will participate in the shoot on the royal’s Sandringham estate without Harry.

Harry, 33, and Meghan, 36, announced their engagement on Nov. 27. They have been thrilling the British public with appearances, but some have raised skepticism about Harry marrying a divorced American actress.

There was also a royal scandal when Princess Michael wore a racist brooch to a lunch with Markle — and then had to apologize. Markle is bi-racial.

The former Suits star loves animals and fights for their rights. She was recently devastated after her dog Guy, a beagle, suffered two broken legs.

She had to leave another beloved pet pooch behind in Toronto to marry Harry.

While Markle, as a royal fiancée, will spend Christmas Day at Sandringham with Queen Elizabeth and the rest of Harry’s family on Monday, the engaged couple will likely not even be seen at the hunt the next day! The other royals, however, should be keen to bag deer and other animals on Boxing Day as usual.

The break from the shoot could give the Prince and Markle some time alone to plan their May 19 wedding!
