According to a report from Page Six, Meghan Markle has a nephew who happens to grow marijuana for a living. The 27-year-old man has one strain called, “Markle Sparkle,” which has earned him a substantial living.
Following the success of the first strain, Markle’s nephew began growing another which he called, “Archie Sparkle,” obviously in reference to Meghan and the Prince’s first child together.
Tyler Dooley, Markle’s nephew, said to reporters from The Daily Mail that he has always been the “black sheep of the family,” however, he’s working hard in a very competitive industry. The star said that his “Markle Sparkle” made a lot of headlines, and thus, a lot of money.

One last photo from The Duchess' event yesterday 🖤👜 . Oh my what a day it was yesterday! Meghan back from maternity leave in full force and I loved it! I have missed these events and the gathering of photographs and information to post! So much fun! It makes me look forward to the South Africa tour so much more now 👏🏻
In case you didn’t know, Dooley, 27, is Thomas Markle’s son, Meghan’s half-brother. Reportedly, Tyler and his side of the family are not well-liked among the royals and weren’t even invited to go to Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding in May of last year.
Dooley said to the outlet that he’s about to expand his farm where he grows the marijuana from 1,000 to 2,600 acres, more than doubling it since he first started. Moreover, Dooley claims the fact he used Meghan’s name in the product played a crucial role in the businesses’ $200 million in revenue.
Speaking on the reputation of his family, the star said he feels as though he’s been given a bad rap. According to Dooley, people consider his family to be like “hillbillies” and a “freakshow,” however, he’s out here working his hardest to make a good living.
As followers of the royal family know, Meghan’s relationship with her American family has been strained for years, but especially after she and Prince Harry got married.
Following the announcement they were going to tie the knot, the media began giving attention to some of Meghan’s family members who were previously never in the spotlight, including her father, Thomas, and her half-sister, Samantha. Putting the family/media drama aside, Meghan, the Prince, and their baby, Archibald, are one big happy family, although, there have been some hiccups along the way.
