The half-brother of Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, is facing a drunken-driving charge after an arrest in Oregon.

Police were said to have performed a field sobriety test and TMZ reports that the window fitter was "visibly intoxicated and well over the legal limit".

TMZ first reported that the 52-year-old was pulled over at 1:33 a.m. Friday and taken into custody in Oregon.

Last year Markle Jr sent Prince Harry a letter before he married the former Suits actress, telling him: 'It's not too late. Meghan has also become patron of Smart Works, a charity that works with unemployed and vulnerable women to help them regain the skills and confidence to return to work, and Mayhew, which supports animal rescue services.

Thomas was taken to the Grants Pass Sobering Center and his Chevy Silverado was impounded.

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

Days before the wedding, Mr Markle urged Prince Harry to cancel his wedding, claiming it would be the "biggest mistake in royal wedding history". "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". Thomas Jr.'s sister Samantha added that her brother's "drinking is not related to Meghan".
