Meghan Markle's father, Thomas Markle, banned his son from smoking weed in front of his little princess, a new book by Andrew Morton claims. Thomas had to come up with a brutal way to get his son to stop the inappropriate behavior. Before Meghan was born, Thomas had given his son Thomas Jr the go-ahead to smoke up at home. 

However, once Meghan was born Thomas was insistent that all that change. It is reported that it was one particular incident which changed everything; Thomas Jr. and his friends were smoking up on the couch as Thomas went up to change baby Meghan's diaper. 

He came back down holding the nappy and whipped out a spoon and started to eat from it. The appalled boys took to leaving the house as an amused Thomas kept on eating. What Thomas Jr. and his friends did not know was that the nappy was actually full of chocolate pudding as reported by the Sun.

According to Morton's book 'Meghan: A Hollywood Princess', Thomas Jr said, "My dad was just blown away by Meghan. He spent every single minute he could with her. My dad was more in love with her than with anyone else in the world, and that included his wife Doria. She became his whole life, his little princess."

Thomas and Doria Ragland's marriage broke off when Meghan was only two years old. The book also claimed that Doria grew extremely sick of the responsibilities while her husband was very much focused on her job. A family friend told the author, "Doria is not a doormat. She spoke up for herself, protected herself and her daughter fiercely. Her head was on straight." 

Meghan stayed with her father at the weekend and attended the exclusive Little Red School House kindergarten. It is believed that teachers overlooked Meghan's star qualities and she was often described as having "an unkempt mane of blonde hair, thick glasses, and an awkward manner."
