Markle made headlines when the royal wedding invitations were mailed out and much of her family did not receive an invite. Dooley and his mother, Tracy, who was married to Markle’s half-brother, Thomas, appeared on Good Morning Britain after they realized they had not received invitations. “I don’t think we’re getting invitations, but that is fine,” Tracy said on the show. “We’re so proud of her.” At least Dooley found another way to celebrate.

Dooley lives in Oregon, where he works as a cannabis farmer. He already helps grow millions of dollars’ worth of marijuana at the Oregon farm, according to news.com.au. Dooley admitted he hasn’t spoken to Markle in at least three years. But he did say that Markle used to babysit him when he was younger, which is why he wants to celebrate her big day in the best way possible: Growing a marijuana strain in her name.

He told The Daily Mail that “Markle Sparkle” is very potent with a scent like blueberries. “It is unique and classy like my aunt,” he said.

Dooley already helps grow millions of dollars in marijuana profits, but he wants to expand the business even more. He even applied for a patent on the strain. The Daily Mail reported that he also enlisted the help of his mother to start an umbrella of “Royally Grown” products, as they’re calling them. Dooley and his mother plan to market other “Markle Sparkle” products like edibles and oils.

Despite Dooley’s excitement behind his newest creation, it’s important to note the side effects of marijuana are still in question. Overuse of marijuana has been linked to a lower sperm count, lung irritation, and mental health disorders such as schizophrenia, among other things. And although patients who use marijuana for its medicinal purposes have praised the drug, the effects can occur over the long term, leaving uncertainty about how safe the drug actually is.
