Meghan Markle's Nephew Has Been Using Her Name To Build Cannabis Company
The self-proclaimed 'black sheep' of Meghan Markle's family has revealed how he's cashing in on his aunt's success with his very own drugs business - having launched a potent variety of cannabis called 'Markle Sparkle' - and is now working on another named after her son.
He launched 'Markle Sparkle' a while back with the tagline 'So strong it will blow your crown off', with the description on the company's website reading: "Noble families often inspire their country persons to craft and dedicate products to them.
"For a Royal baby, a royal cheddar. For a Royal wedding, a royal weed.
"Markle Sparkle is a cannabis strain dedicated to the soon-to-be British Royal Meghan Markle."
However, he has since revealed he's also growing a new hybrid strain of cannabis named after Meghan and Harry's son - his second cousin - named 'Archie Sparkie'.
Tyler, the son of Meghan's half-brother Tom Markle Jr, told the Daily Mail: "People have always called me the black sheep of the family but I've been working my **** off to make a living in a very competitive business.

"Markle Sparkle made headlines and made me a lot of money."
Tyler added: "People have labelled Meghan's American family as hillbillies and a freak show but I'm building a business the old-fashioned way with hard work and lots of sweat.
"The farm is organic and sustainable. It's ironic my aunt and Prince Harry go on about being such great eco-warriors and yet they carry on jetting around on private planes. I think we're doing more for the planet than my aunt Meghan is."

While Tyler refused to say exactly how much he is worth, he reckons his cannabis business Blue Line Hemp has an 'expected revenue' of up to $200 million (£160m) a year - which obviously isn't too shabby, even for the relative of a royal.
He also said he has been distancing himself from producing marijuana containing the mind-bending compound THC, and will instead be turning his attention to products containing cannabidiol (CBD).
Tyler added: "CBD products are where the future lies. We are selling our product to several of the leading importers into the UK. We're planning to flood the market."
