Meghan Markle is considering reaching out to her family following the birth of her child next month. According to the DailyMail.com, although the Duchess has been repeatedly dragged through the headlines by her estranged father and half-sister, she hopes the birth will mark the beginning of a new chapter. An insider told the site that “she plans to extend an olive branch to the family and invite them to visit after the baby is born – her sister Samantha Markle included.”
Kensington Palace has declined to comment on the report.
Samantha Markle has spoken out about her feud with half-sister Meghan Markle in a new documentary— “Meghan and the Markles: A Family at War.” In the interview, Sam said, “[Meg] doesn’t have a heart, or she would have been doing everything she could to make [dad] comfortable and reciprocate and be loving and gracious and make sure he’s comfortable in his old age. She can’t turn herself into the victim here.”
There has been no response from the royal family. Don’t hold your breath for one either, as they have remained mum on all the drama.
Thomas Markle Jr. has come to Meghan Markle’s defense. The Duchess’ estranged half-brother spoke out against sister Samantha Markle, saying she is “jealous and bitter” and he, as well as his dad Thomas Markle have begged her to stop “spreading lies.”
Thomas Jr. added that he would love nothing more than to reunite the family and be able to meet his future niece/nephew.
Following his outspoken daughter, Samantha Markle, Thomas Markle is now coming for George Clooney. While he agrees with the actor that the press is treating Meghan Markle “like crap,” he is upset about George discussing the letter drama.
While George never mentioned Thomas by name when slamming the situation, it is not hard to put two and two together. Meg’s dad is also upset with the friends who blasted him and believes he is getting a “raw deal” when it comes to the press.
Samantha Markle is clapping back at George Clooney. THE GEORGE CLOONEY! During a recent press panel, the actor defended his friend Meghan Markle, saying she is being “pursued and vilified,” just like Diana was. He added how terrible it was for Thomas Markle to blast the letter Meghan wrote him; cue Samantha.
She tweeted at George “Hey Looney Clooney! Your lawyer wife should have taught you not to make statements without full facts.”
She is probably just bitter because she will not be in the royal baby’s life, while George is rumored to be the godfather.
Per British tabloid, The Mirror, Samantha Markle is set to make $100k off the birth of the royal baby. The gossip mag reports that the dough will be accumulated through TV documentaries, chat show interviews, a book deal and other interviews.
A source came to Sam’s defense, saying “Samantha has every right to celebrate the birth of her niece or nephew in spring and will talk about her connection to Meghan, as they are family. She has never been given a penny by Meghan so she has every right to earn her own money in this way.”
Meghan Markle’s banana writing has caused some controversy. The Duchess and Prince Harry stopped by a charity, called One25, in Bristol the other day and while there Meghan decided to write words of encouragement on a bunch of bananas that were being handed out—as part of a whole meal—to sex workers. Cue the ridicule.
Piers Morgan started the criticism by writing “Giving a sex worker a banana is clearly exposing them to potential mockery.”
Of course, Meghan’s half-sister Samantha Markle jumped on the bandwagon and tweeted, “I was hoping my sister would give them each a beautiful bouquet of flowers, words of strength, and enough money to change their lives. That is what #humanitarians do. Bananas? WTF.”
Kensington Palace has had enough of Meghan Markle’s half sister Samantha Markle. According to The Daily Mail, protection officers for The Duchess, as well as Scotland Yard, have placed Samantha on a “fixated persons list.”
Naturally the outspoken non-royal had something to say about the news. She took to Twitter, writing, “This is ridiculous you don’t silence somebody by making an example out of them and sensationalizing circumstances by disparaging them.”
It is not clear what happens to someone whose name is on the list, but a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said, “We do not confirm the identity of any person who may or may not be of interest to police unless that person has been charged with an offense.”
Samantha Markle has something to say about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Christmas card…and really, why wouldn’t she?
Meghan and Harry’s card features a photo of the two of them standing side-by-side gazing at fireworks that went off during their wedding reception. The picture, which only shows the royals from behind, is what Samantha has taken offense to.
Samantha took to Twitter where she responded to Kensington Palace, writing, “Interesting that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have their backs turned. Is this towards the world or just the Ragland and Markle family? It’s a bit sad. Face the Christmas spirit.”
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”.
