Meghan Markle's Bodyguard Is Resigning After Just Six Months of Service

The Duchess of Sussex had arrived at the market in Suva for a royal engagement, but left prematurely due to an alleged security scare.

Meghan Markle has lost yet another royal staffer since becoming the Duchess of Sussex.

State police said Thomas Wayne Markle Jr. was visibly intoxicated when he was pulled over at about 1:30 a.m. Friday in Josephine County, in southwestern Oregon.

The 52-year-old from Grants Pass was taken to a detox center.

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

Meghan's bodyguard, who is thought to hold the rank of inspector, had replaced Sgt Bill Renshaw, Harry's long-standing head of security.

Kensington Palace did not immediately return Fox News' request for comment on the staffing changes.

The female police officer has never been named for security reasons, but she was the bodyguard who was photographed leaping into action during a security scare in Fiji during the couple's royal tour previous year.

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

The Duchess of Cambridge, who turned 37 a few days ago, apparently enjoyed a low-key celebration with pals at her and William's Norfolk countryside pile, Anmer Hall.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Meghan's big brother - who is marrying his fiancée, Darlene Blount in March - revealed that he'd sent an official wedding invitation to Meghan and Harry. "Meghan Markle is obviously not the right woman for you".

He added: "It's hopeful that if Meghan and Harry came and my father - Meghan and Harry could spend some time together with him and that would be good".
