Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, accompanied by Juliet Hughes-Hallett, as they walk past racks of clothes at the Smart Works charity career centre in West London, Thursday Jan. 10, 2019.

The 52-year-old, who is the son of Meghan's father Thomas Sr., was driving by Oregon State Police, who stopped him and noted he was visibly intoxicated.

The troubled sibling of the royal was cuffed and taken into custody Friday at 1:33 a.m. after cops performed a field sobriety test and noted his impairment was obvious.

His Chevy Silverado was impounded and he was then taken to the Grants Pass Sobering Center.

The former Suits actress - who is now pregnant with her and Prince Harry's first child - is estranged from much of her family, including her brother, her dad, Thomas Snr, and her half-sister, Samantha.

It comes just weeks before Meghan and Prince Harry are due to move into Frogmore Cottage in the grounds of Windsor Castle ahead of the birth of their first child.

Authorities said his blood-alcohol content was 0.11%, above the legal limit of 0.08%.

Daily Star Online has approached Kensington Palace for comment.

Both the unnamed bodyguard and Ms Cohen worked for Ms Markle and her husband Prince Harry.

At the time of his arrest, Blount reportedly told officials she feared for her life, but she dropped the case the following month.

Meghan Markle's female bodyguard has quit after less than a year, it has been revealed.

The Queen has been captured on camera having some relaxed moments with both her grand daughters in law, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle.
