As she specified she disliked 'men in suits' (oh irony) a female team at the Portland Hospital is suspected but not confirmed. And yes, it is in the public interest to know these things. In fact all births in the UK are a matter of public record.

    I wouldn’t like to have this amount of public scrutiny tbh.

    The Daily Mail continues with the inflammatory headlines that don't match the actual text of the article. The story says that they weren't friends and haven't spoken since 2007. Piers Morgan keeps whining that Harry is freezing out the royal reporters. His paper is the reason why.

    Seriously “Corporal of Horse O’Leary got to know Prince Harry as his radio operator in Afghanistan in 2007.”
    So he was “enlisted” where as Harry was an officer, and it was 12 years ago?
    Plus this guy is still a corporal after 12 years? There is something wrong there then immediately.

    Sure...he's going to look up to the uncle that was arrested for being drunk in public and domestic violence. Delusion runs deep in that toxic family.


    Meghan Markle's brother on boxing in A.C. and being a role model to baby Archie


    • By PAMELA DOLLAK
    • May 22, 2019 Updated May 22, 2019






    Thomas Markle Jr, right, brother of Prince Harry's wife Meghan Markle, will enter the ring with Henry "Nacho" Laun, left, from the television show 'The Wahlburger's' during Celebrity Boxing 68 on June 8 at Showboat. Markle is hoping this boxing match helps mend things with his estranged half-sister.
    Star Shooter / Provided


    When Celebrity Boxing 68 barrels into Showboat 7 p.m., June 8, it brings with it the usual ilk of pseudo-celebs like reality stars and DJs.

    This time around, though, there will be a tie-in to the British Royal Family.

    Thomas Markle Jr., half-brother to Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle, will get into the ring to fight Henry “Nacho” Laun of TV’s “The Wahlburgers.”

    Markle, who is currently and quite famously estranged from his half-sibling, does not have any boxing experience. But he left his home in Oregon to do some training outside of Philadelphia with Celebrity Boxing promoter and former boxer Damon Feldman, aka the “Jewish Rocky.”

    “He’s a natural,” says Feldman of Markle’s boxing skills. “We’re pretty impressed with his punching power. He’s better than we thought.”

    Training has been difficult for Markle, who does admit to having “some experience” with knocking people out, partly due to a persistent cold and partly due to a “transitional period” presently happening in his life.

    “I’m on the road of hard knocks,” Markle says. “(With) the media and Meghan Markle … I guess it’s due to what I’ve dealt with and have to deal with now. It’s just sort of a difficult period. It’s … going from a private life to having your life spotlighted in the media. It’s thrown quite a few curves. It’s an adjustment period.”


    He doesn’t exactly seem to shy away from any kind of affiliation with his royal in-laws, however. For the boxing match, Markle even dubbed himself the nickname “The Duke,” an obvious nod to his brother-in-law Prince Harry. He said the nickname “naturally fell into place and sort of stuck.”


    “It’s my little niche. It rings a bell. I don’t think that I’m a Duke. (But) ‘The Duke’ kind of sticks.”

    Markle has no intention of jetting over to England while on the East Coast to pop in on his sister, brother-in-law and new nephew Archie.

    “That ball is not in my court — that has to come from Meghan herself. She’s the one who has to break the silence and acknowledge her family … I mean, she would have to reach out to her family here in America,” says Markle, who claims that neither he, nor his father Thomas Markle Sr. or sister Samantha Markle, can pinpoint exactly what caused the rift between Meghan and them.

    This Celebrity Boxing match, though, is something that Markle hopes will help break the ice with his sister and potentially reunite them, as well as provide him a chance to meet little Archie.

    “A good point to this is … maybe the Celebrity Boxing match will open her eyes and let her know that we are still here,” Markle wishes. “If I dedicate the fight to her and baby Archie, maybe he can have a role model (in me) to look up to for the rest of this life.”

    Meghan Markle’s half brother reveals he’s homeless and at the 'lowest point' of his life

    The Duchess of Sussex’s half brother Thomas Markle Jr has revealed he’s at the “lowest point” of his life after losing his job and his home.

    The 52-year-old claims he has been living in a hotel room in Oregon with his fiancée Darlene, her son and their two dogs because he has been unable to find anywhere else to live.

    He said that his every move has been “put under the microscope,” since his half-sister Meghan got engaged to Prince Harry.

    He believes his name has become so notorious in his home town of Grant’s Pass that no one is willing to hire him or lease a house.

    Thomas Jr told The Sun: “This is the lowest point of my life.

    “Living in a small hotel room is really taking its toll on Darlene and her son – on all of us.

    “And it’s all because my life suddenly got catapulted into the spotlight – through no fault of my own.


    “My every move has been put under the microscope – not just for me but all my family.


    “Now there’s been so much said about me – both true and untrue – no one wants to lease me a house or give me a job.

    “It’s tough to accept – especially when I never asked for any this.”

    Thomas Jr claimed his problems began earlier this year when he was unable to work as a glazier, due to ill-health.

    He said he was forced to leave his home after he was issued an eviction notice by his landlord, who went on to claim that he had trashed the property and owed him money.

    Landlord Paul Walter reportedly branded Meghan’s half-sibling a “lowlife” in interviews, but Thomas Jr says he has photographs to prove he left the house in good condition.

    He added the false accusations had made it almost impossible for him to find an alternative home.

    Thomas Jr also revealed he is struggling to find work.

    “I’m still out of work – I’ve been applying to places but they hear my name and I don’t get it. I’ve even been applying to things I’m over qualified for. This has never happened to me before in my life,” he told the Sun.
    “The problem is I’m known as Thomas Markle, Meghan’s crazy brother now.

    “I’ve gone from being a private person to having everything I’ve ever done in my life out there for everybody.”

    Meghan reportedly has had no contact with her half-siblings Thomas Markle Jr and Samantha Markle (who she shares a father with) for years.

    The Duchess of Sussex, who gave birth to son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor earlier this month, is estranged from her dad Thomas Markle.

    The pair have not spoken since he failed to attend the royal wedding last May, due to health reasons.

    He did this to himself. He was quick to run to the press with his nonsense and now he has to deal with the notoriety. I highly doubt it's as bad as he says it is. He comes across just like his whiny father who has gone to the press again to complain about a Lifetime movie that just aired about Meghan and Harry.

    God, I cringe so much at my own family, then I read about Meghan's and realize I should probably stop. I feel bad for her.

    Meghan Markle made her first public appearance on Saturday since giving birth to her son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. The Duchess of Sussex attended the traditional Trooping the Colour with Prince Harry. The event is an official celebration of the Queen's birthday.

    Onlookers got their first glimpse of the royal couple as they exited Buckingham Palace in a horse-drawn carriage with Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall. Thousands of people gathered along the Mall in London to watch the spectacle, which featured more than 200 horses, 400 musicians and 1,400 officers.

    Aside from the appearance when the new parents introduced Prince Archie to the world, the Duchess has remained out of the public eye. She was all smiles during the event, wearing a navy Givenchy outfit by her wedding dress designer, Clare Waight Keller, and a matching navy hat by Noel Stewart.

    Trooping the Color is a ceremony deeply rooted in the history of the United Kingdom. It originated from traditional preparations for battle when flags, or colors, were "trooped" so soldiers in the ranks would be able to recognize them. The parade allows Queen Elizabeth II to review her army, as she is technically the head of Britain's armed forces.
