Mike Markle popular as Meghan Markle’s uncle, has died as per sources.
The Sun claims that Mike was 82-year-old was suffering from Parkinson’s disease and suffering several falls before he died.
The magazine stated that Mike had never met Prince Harry, but unlike her father, her uncle was “proud” of Meghan.
“He would always stop for a chat to say how proud he was of her even though he didn’t often agree with how she went about things,” they told the publication.
“He would usually just chuckle and say, ‘It’s not every day you have a prince in the family, though, I suppose!'”
The source continued: “Mike was a lovely, gentle, softly spoken old man.
“He was always happy to be asked about Meghan, but whenever he spoke to anyone he mainly wanted to talk about his late wife – he loved her so much.”
After the death of her wife, the 82-year-old had moved to live in a trailer park community. In Meghan’s early years, he helped her a little.
The source claimed, Megan wanted a career in international relations, so Mike gets her an internship as a junior press officer in the American embassy in Argentina.
Meghan’s relationship with her father Thomas and the wider family on his side isn’t straightforward. It can be observed that he was also estranged from Meghan.
Maike talked with The Express last year and sided with Thomas in the ongoing saga, clearing up that he desired his brother could meet Meghan and Harry’s son, Archie.
“Tom should be speaking to his daughter and his newest grandson,” he said at the time.
The death comes as Prince Harry has traveled to London, left his wife and their two children, Archie and newborn baby girl Lilibet, back in the US.
The new idea wrote, “it is unknown if the Duchess of Sussex will publicly comment on her uncle’s death. Given her privacy preference, we imagine the death will be mourned privately by the 39-year-old.”
