MEGHAN MARKLE’S EX-DIPLOMAT UNCLE MIKE DIES AT 82
Sources told The Sun that Markle, who was known as Mike, had been battling Parkinson’s disease and had suffered falls in recent years.
A source said: “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.”
After his wife’s passing, Markle is said to have moved from his home in Oregon to be closer to his daughter.
There, despite his illness, Markle managed to keep his independence while living in a trailer community, a source said.
Mike was “very proud” of Meghan, according to a source, and wished he had the opportunity to meet Harry.
