Meghan Markle’s nephew has claimed the royal wedding ripped the Markle family apart in a new reality show.
Speaking on MTV’s new series, The Royal World, Tyler Dooley is set to spill the beans about the very public feud that has been playing out since Meghan Markle’s romance began with Prince Harry.
“When it hit the press that Meghan was dating [Prince] Harry, it’s been a really tough journey throughout,” the 26-year-old says, in a teaser clip from the show.
“My family has been torn apart. Had we had some guidance and assistance, perhaps from the royal family, we could have avoided a lot of this stuff. I just want to set the record straight.”
He stars in the programme, which follows a group of young royals and aristocrats living together in a mansion in the British countryside.
In another segment, Tyler explains: “Meghan was just a part of our normal American family, and I viewed her as sister. We were kind of similar in age. She was fun, we just love her.”
The marijuana farmer, who famously named a strain ‘Markle Sparkle’ after his aunt, is estranged from his father, Meghan’s half-brother Thomas Markle Jr.
He previously branded his dad a “vile human being” after he wrote to Harry and urged him to call off the wedding.
While Tyler also admitted that he doesn’t think comments from the likes of Meghan’s very vocal half-sister, Samantha Markle, should be made public.
