It appears that Thomas Markle has chosen to ignore the ultimatum that his daughther, Meghan Markle has given him.
According to Vanity Fair, a source close to the Duchess said that Meghan has had one–and only one–conversation with her father since her royal wedding, and it was to give him a final offer of having any sort of relationship with her. Meghan said that the two could work on rebuilding their relationship, but he needed to stop speaking to the media. She also said that he needed to cut off contact with his other daughter Samantha Markle, who is to blame for much of the drama that has been stirred up in the family.
By continuing to speak to the press and most recently, releasing letters that Meghan has written him over the years, Thomas has clearly made his choice.
Samantha Markle has been suspiciously quiet lately and we now know why. Meghan Markle’s half-sister is working on a tell-all-book that will likely include things about Meghan. Samantha told the Daily Mail that the book—titled “In The Shadows Of The Duchess”—will cover “everything” and that she is “holding nothing back!” She also plans to release the book next April or May aka the same time that Meghan is due to have her baby.
The Markle family feud continues. Samantha Markle—who recently apologized to her half-sister and Prince Harry—is now calling Meghan a liar, for what she said in her speech at the University of the South Pacific in Fiji. Meghan addressed the crowd about the excitement of attending a university as well as the “challenges of being able to afford” that level of schooling. The Duchess said that through scholarships, financial aid and work-study, she was able to attend university. Samantha says this is not true; that their father Thomas Markle paid for all of Meghan’s university expenses. The spiteful sister tweeted that everyone needs to “stop the enabling” and “do not ever reward a lie.”
Samantha Markle just won’t stop talking. After saying that her father should have been included in the royal baby announcement and needs to be included in said baby’s life or else, she is apologizing…again. The Duchess’ half-sister wants to apologize to Meghan and Harry for “past tension”. She told DailyMailTV that “everybody really just needs to come together and realize this is really important and special for Meg, for Harry, for the child, for all of us.” Again, this is probably not the end of the Samantha Saga.
Samantha Markle has commented on the royal baby news. The royal family stalker told The Sun that she wants “Meghan to be happy and calm and have peace.” Nice right? Samantha followed up her feel-good sentiment with quite the jab at the wording of the baby announcement, saying: “I would hope that—for the sake of the baby, the family, the world and my dad—that leaving him out of the statement was not intentional. It is in the best interests of the baby for my dad to be included.” Um…what? This is just a hunch, but she probably shouldn’t expect a baby shower invite.
Samantha Markle quite possibly lives in some sort of alternate universe. She is back home in Florida after touring London, but is far from done talking about her half-sister, Meghan Markle. After publicly being turned away at the gates of Kensington Palace, Samantha is claiming that was not the case. In an interview with DailyMailTV, she said she is not the type to get “turned away”, that she was only there to hand deliver a letter to the Duchess. During the interview, she also had a message for her royal half-sister.
–QUOTABLE: “Let’s just cut through all the crap. You’re a woman. Life is short. I believe you have it in your heart to do the right thing here. You know dad loves you. You know he has been there for you more than anyone. So, don’t [believe] this public monster and misperception that he’s a sperm donor dad trying to be involved all of a sudden.”
Meghan Markle’s half-sister was denied access to Kensington Palace. Samantha Markle, who has been making her way around the London talk show circuit, was not able to get in direct contact with Meghan. Security turned her away at the gate, but not before she slipped them a letter to allegedly pass along to the Duchess. Satisfied with her half-hearted attempt, Samantha continued on her sightseeing adventure. The Mirror reported that paparazzi caught the whole exchange, so although she recently apologized, the visit may have just been another publicity stunt. No one can blame Meghan for the cold shoulder. She is probably not ready to forgive and forget being called “the duchASS” nor having her husband compared to a rodent.
Samantha Markle, who is in London, hoping for a sit down with half-sister Meghan—don’t hold thy breath—is now expressing her regret. Samantha sat down for an interview on the Jeremy Vine Show and issued a public—because she doesn’t do anything behind the scenes—apology to the Duchess. Samantha said everything “spun out of control” and that “everybody was hurt not being included or invited to the wedding”. She ended her speech with “I apologize and wish things could be different”. Not sure how sincere she is as it was only last month she referred to Meghan as a DuchASS. To be continued…
Samantha Markle can now add royal stalker to her crazy half-sister resume. Markle has been hanging out in Italy, with plans to fly to London, in hopes of getting a meeting with Duchess Megan; she shouldn’t hold her breath. A friend of Meghan’s told The Daily Mail that “there is not a chance in hell that Meghan is going to lower herself and meet with her half-sister”. According to Markle’s manager, she hopes to discuss their father’s failing health with the Duchess. What. A. Mess.
MEANWHILE — SAMANTHA GRANT who now goes by SAMANTHA MARKLE tweeted some birthday wishes at her royal half-sister over the weekend. They were not-so cleverly disguised as a dig at the duchess, once again referring to her feud with their dad but also hurling insults, calling Meghan “Cruella de Ville”.
