In a matter of weeks, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will welcome their first child - but who will they choose as godparents?

Regardless, cops booked him in jail at the Grants Pass Sobering Center, and impounded his Chevy Silverado.

Just before Christmas, Meghan's father Thomas Markle Sr, 74, told ITV's Good Morning Britain he had been texting her every day but she will not return any of his messages.

Last year, he was busted for allegedly threatening fiancée Darlene Blount with a gun during a drunken argument, but she later dropped the charges.

"What daughter doesn't go see their father after a heart attack!" her bitter brother claimed, adding troubled dad Thomas Sr.is "upset" that his relationship with his daughter was "completely over" after she "brushed him off".
