Around the time of the Royal Wedding, there were a ton of reports surrounding the relationship between Meghan and her father, Thomas Markle. Many were interested to see if Meghan’s father would receive an invite to the wedding and, after everything, it turns out that he did not attend due to medical conditions. Prior to saying “I do,” Meghan issued a statement from Kensington Palace saying:
Sadly, my father will not be attending our wedding. I have always cared for my father and hope he can be given the space he needs to focus on his health.
Now, Thomas Markle has taken to media outlets saying that his daughter hasn’t spoken to him since the day after the Royal Wedding. Markle told The Sun that he believes his daughter is under too much pressure.
“I think she is terrified. I see it in her eyes, I see it in her face and I see it in her smile. I’ve seen her smile for years. I know her smile. I don’t like the one I’m seeing now. This one isn’t even a stage smile ― this is a pained smile.”
Now, Meghan’s half-sister decided to join the conversation on Twitter to call her out for “abandoning her own father.” In a series of now-deleted tweets, Samantha Markle called Meghan out for paying tribute to those in need while ignoring her own father. She also said that if Thomas Markle dies, she’s holding Meghan responsible. Clearly, this is uncalled for and dramatic–screaming of desperation and hunger for fame.
Meghan’s half-sister also responded to an interview their father had done earlier this week with TMZ. Thomas Markle had said:
“I was silent for a full year and the press beat me up every day saying I was a hermit hiding in Mexico, so I gave my story. Apparently, that interview put the royal family in their silence mode… so, I gave another interview to break the silence. All they have to do is speak to me.”
Both Samantha and Thomas Markle seem absolutely nothing but money-hungry and desperate to get a rise out of Meghan and the entire Royal Family. As many know, Markle’s father is paid for these interviews and, it’s a low blow to use your daughter as a pawn in a money scheme. As well, Samantha Markle’s disposition towards her half-sister has been nothing but salty and bitter, ever since reports of her engagement to Prince Harry hit the press.
It must suck to live in the shadows of someone as talented and happy as Meghan Markle, but how low will you let your bitterness drag you? Pretty damn low it seems.
