The Duchess of Sussex hasn’t exactly been on good terms with some members of her family. Both Meghan’s father and her half-sister have publicly talked about their bad relationship with Meghan and criticised her and the royal family. Samantha Markle has been especially outspoken, going as far as saying that if their father were to die, it would be Meghan’s fault, and calling her a “duchass”. Now, she’s travelled to England to apologise.
She does make sure to point the blame for the animosity back at Meghan and her husband, though.
After slamming Prince Harry on his birthday just a few weeks ago and calling Meghan “Cruella de Vil” among other bad names, Samantha Markle now wants to apologise for everything that’s happened. She travelled to England for that exact reason, she says, as she appears on British talk show Jeremy Vine. On the show, she talks about how much she regrets that things between her and her sister have deteriorated over the past year. She explains that she hopes they can move past this and that she has come to London in the hopes of speaking to Meghan. She said on the show: “I just think that families can be this way when there’s confusion and when people are hurt. So moving forward, I apologise, and I wish things could be different.”
Although Samantha does apologise, she also points the blame for the situation at Meghan and Harry. She said on the show: “So much has spun out of control that was never intended to. I think everybody was hurt at not being included or invited to the wedding, but I felt as though it could have all been nipped in the bud had everyone been included … and the hurt feelings wouldn’t have snowballed.” With ‘everyone’, she means Meghan’s family members, most of whom weren’t invited to the royal wedding.
When asked about all of the nasty things Samantha has said about her sister and Prince Harry, she claims that much of what was said in the tabloids was untrue. She also claims that the media have left out the “favourable things” she said about her sister, only wanting to focus on the negatives. Samantha hasn’t been able to get in touch with Meghan yet. She went to Buckingham Palace in the hopes to talk to her. That attempt was fruitless, though, since Meghan lives in Kensington Palace.
