Meghan Markle’s estranged father, Thomas Markle Sr, said last month that wedding guests at his daughter’ first wedding in Jamaica were given an extra something. Now, it has been claimed that the Duchess of Sussex boasted to friends about serving illegal marijuana at her first wedding.
Leaked emails reveal that Meghan Markle had plans to put the marijuana in the party bags distributed to guests as she tied the knot with Trevor Engelson. In the email obtained by The SUn UK, Meghan was urged by a friend to buy a certain type of bag for the cannabis, which was to be served at her 2011 wedding.
According to the Sun, Meghan allegedly replied to the mail, saying:
Already ordered ’em. And teeny ones for the pot that say ‘shh’.
The future royal then signed off the email with a jokey smiley face.
Meghan’s estranged father Thomas revealed last month that wedding guests were given a bag of marijuana. He, however didn’t state if Meghan was aware or involved in this. Now, the emails claim to show for the first time that Meghan was involved too.
Sources told the Sun that Meghan’s groom, Trevor Engelson bought the marijuana through a member of staff at their hotel. They also claimed that Meghan helped roll the joints and insert the filter tip.
At the time of the wedding in 2011, any possession of cannabis was illegal in Jamaica. It wasn’t until 2015 that the laws were relaxed to make possession of small amounts a ‘petty offence’ and unlikely to lead to a criminal conviction.
