For Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, there’s no doubt that they have had their fair share of drama, plus more, in the last several years. There’s a new report that says the Duke of Sussex was forced to rush back home to California after the unveiling of a Princess Diana statue at Kensington Palace because of a family emergency.
And no, it had nothing to do with Meghan or their two children, Archie Harrison and Lilibet Diana. Instead, Harry and Meghan received the news that a family member had passed away. Here’s what you need to know.
According to reports, Meghan Markle’s estranged uncle, Mike Markle, had passed away. Prince Harry rushed back to California when he received the news.

Even though Meghan had not spoken to her Uncle in several years, sources say that he was awfully proud of his royal niece. The Daily Mail said that while Mike had never met Prince Harry, he had nothing but praise for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
“He was quite well known in his community for being Meghan’s uncle, and he would always stop for a chat to say how proud he was of her even though he didn’t often agree with how she went about things,” a source said, according to the Daily Mail. “He would usually just chuckle and say, ‘It’s not every day you have a prince in the family, though, I suppose!'”
The tipster added, “Mike was a lovely, gentle, softly spoken old man. He was always happy to be asked about Meghan, but whenever he spoke to anyone he mainly wanted to talk about his late wife—he loved her so much.”
As many royal fans know, Meghan is also estranged from her father, Thomas Markle Sr., who she hasn’t spoken to ever since he failed to show up to Prince Harry and Meghan’s royal wedding back in 2018.
So far Meghan herself has not made any comments about her uncle’s death.
