Meghan Markle’s family drama just won’t dissipate. The latest has Duchess of Sussex’s nephew Tyler Dooley, 25, cast in MTV’s The Royal World.
Tyler is the son of Meghan’s estranged half-brother, Thomas Markle Jr. The show is set to premiere on November 7th. The unscripted series follows the lives of young royals, aristocrats (and wannabes) as they come together to live in the English countryside and have their every moment filmed.
Tyler, the show admits: "isn’t royal, just your average kinda guy." In the trailer, Tyler admits his only connection is "my aunty Meghan."
Tyler doesn’t just leverage his "aunty" for reality TV fame, he has also uses the connection to highlight his marijuana dispensary in Oregon. It’s called Royally Grown, and he offers one strain called Meghan Sparkle, which his site describes as "extremely potent."
SAMANTHA DIGS IN
Meanwhile, her estranged half-sister Samantha isn’t taking "no" for an answer. Despite being denied entry at Kensington Palace, the 54-year-old tells the Daily Mail that she won’t give up on getting herself and her father Thomas royally recognized.
"I want her to do the right thing: Acknowledge my dad for primarily raising her and making her everything she is. She knows that he's awesome!"
She continued: "Let's just cut through all the crap. You're a woman. Life is short. I believe you have it in your heart to do the right thing here. You know dad loves you. You know he's been there for you more than anyone. So, don't believe this public monster and misperception that he's a 'sperm donor dad' trying to be involved all of a sudden."
On a positive note, Meghan seems to be getting along just fine with the family she married into. According to reports, Princess Eugenie turned to Meghan for help planning her October 12th wedding to Jack Brooksbank.
Earlier this week, the Palace shared some sweet intel on the royal wedding cake. "Princess Eugenie of York and Mr Brooksbank have asked London based cake designer Sophie Cabot to make their wedding cake," the palace said in a press release. "The red velvet and chocolate cake will be a traditional cake, with a modern feel. It will incorporate the rich colours sic of autumn in its design and will be covered with detailed sugar work including ivy."
Eugenie is expecting 850 guests, a bigger crew than the 600 Meghan and Prince Harry had. Like Meghan and Harry, Eugenie will get married at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor.
