MEGHAN Markles half-brother is cashing in on his royal connections by starring in an ad as a thief who steals the Crown Jewels, reports claim.
In the clip for a beer brand, Thomas Markle Jr. conspires with a Duchess of Sussex lookalike to break into Buckingham Palace.
Thomas Markle Jr., who was arrested in 2017 after allegedly holding a gun to his girlfriend’s head, will feature in a new ad
The Duchess of Sussex is also featured – but she is played by an actress
Markle Jr., who was accused of putting a gun to his girlfriend’s head during a row in 2017, grabs Queen Elizabeth IIs crown in the 30-second ad.
He then sees a cabinet of Classic New York Beer and takes the bottles too, according to the companys CEO, Billie Mitchell, who revealed the details to Page Six.

Markle Jr. lets go of the crown but keeps the beer.
He throws down one bottle of booze as an obstacle for the guard, who eagerly snatches it and gulps it down.
The Duchess of Sussex is also featured but by a lookalike actress, Renee Wood.
She sits in the backseat of a Rolls Royce getaway car, wearing a tiara and jewels, and anxiously awaits her co-conspirator brother.
When Markle Jr. opens the cars door and jumps in the backseat the duchess character asks whether he was able to grab the jewels.
He says he grabbed something even better and pulls out two bottles of Classic New York Beer.
Priceless! the Meghan character says as the pair clink the bottles.
Markle Jr., who was busted drink driving earlier this year, has already stirred up controversy, once branding his estranged half-sister a phony.
Last April, he wrote a letter warning Prince Harry that his then-upcoming marriage to Meghan would be the biggest mistake in royal wedding history.
He wasnt invited to the nuptials.
Markle Jr. also called on the queen to heal the rift between Meghan and her dads side of the family.
He shares the same dad as the former Suits actress.
In January 2017, he was arrested following a drunken row with his girlfriend Darlene Blount, in which he allegedly threatened her with a gun.
Despite his bad blood with Meghan, Markle Jr. thinks the royal family may get a kick out of the advert.
I dont think anyone would be upset by it. Its not going to piss anyone off, he told Page Six.
Markle Jr. met Mitchell and the companys founder and president Sir Gary Kong at a celebrity boxing match in Atlantic City six months ago and they later reached out to him to pitch the satirical spot.
The ad, which was filmed in one day in Oceanside, New York, will be broadcast first in China and then New York.
Markle Jr. says it may be his way to mend ties with Meghan.
It would be great to get together and have a Classic New York Beer, he said. After all, in the ad, she said it was priceless.
