Throughout this past year, the world has been charmed by Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex herself, particularly as she made her way into the royal family via this past May's Royal Wedding. But she has a tough critic: her own half-sister, Samantha Markle. The drama is reportedly because she hasn't spoken to her father, Thomas Markle, since she joined the British monarchy earlier this summer. Yes. It seems Thomas Markle isn't the only Markle beefing with the royal family.
Much like Meghan Markle's father, Samantha Markle is speaking out about it, and she's unafraid to be critical of how she has been neglecting to speak to her dad. Here's what Samantha Markle had to say about her famous sister, particularly how she has been treating her biological father since his tabloid controversy soon resulted in a health crisis that caused him to be unable to attend the heavily-viewed wedding.
Samantha Markle's quote comes from her recent conversation with Good Morning Britain. Some critics have been claiming that Samantha is attempting to exploit her sister's recent fame, which is a criticism that has also been directed towards Thomas Markle as well. But Samantha Markle believes she's perfectly allowed to speak out about how she is feeling, because it's her life and her stories. If people wish to hear about them, why would she hold back? That's the logic that seems to be in Samantha's train of thought at the moment. Here's what Samantha Markle had to say about it.
Whether or not Samantha Markle has a point, the royal family is reportedly very unhappy with how Meghan Markle's family has been so willing to gossip with the media since Markle joined the British royal family. While Thomas Markle and Samantha Markle aren't looking to win the family over, they are clearly not looking to make friends either. It should be noted that Meghan Markle and Buckingham Palace hasn't responded publicly to the claims and dismissals made by Samantha Markle at this time. Though, naturally if they do make any official comments, you'll be sure to hear about it here at CinemaBlend.
