Meghan Markle has been in the tabloids plenty over the last several months, thanks to a romance with Prince Harry followed by a beautiful wedding and Markle becoming a member of the royal family, with all of its duties and responsibilities. However, her family has also been in the paper plenty over the last several months. In particular, her half-sister Samantha Markle has been outspoken about Meghan Markle, at one point even comparing her sibling to Cruella de Vil. Regardless, now she's making a set of rounds on TV in the U.K. to make up for some of her previous comments. On Jeremy Vine, she apologized, saying:
I would just say that there's so much water under the bridge and so much has spun out of control that was never intended to. I think that everybody was hurt about 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 we all just agreed to move forward with positive resolve. The hurt feelings wouldn't have snowballed but believe it or not that doesn't mean we love you any less. I just think that families can be this way when there's confusion and people are hurt. So, moving forward, I apologize and I wish things could be different.
Previously, Samantha Markle, who also goes by Samantha Grant, has spoken out about her half-sister on various forums, including in some now-deleted tweets where she complained about Meghan Markle's treatment of their father. She also responded to some comments Prince Harry had made about Meghan Markle joining the royal family, noting that Meghan Markle already had a family, and a large one, at that. She later clarified why she kept speaking out about Meghan Markle, blatantly saying that she'd previously worked in media jobs and knew she could get money for speaking out about her half-sister, even saying, "money makes the world go round, so if you want to call that cashing in, that's fine."
Still, despite these previous reveals, during the program, Samantha Markle also told the talk show host she spent time standing outside and just staring at Buckingham Palace yesterday, also noting on Jeremy Vine,
Well, I was hoping that maybe we would have the chance to speak, that she would know I was here. But I don't think that's gonna happen.
Samantha Grant/Markle now seems to be singing a similar tune to her father, Thomas Markle, who also talked about visiting England in the hopes to make amends. In fact, she's even gone a step further and is actually in the U.K. It's hard to tell how this saga will eventually end up, but after months of her various family members repeatedly talking to the tabloids, Meghan Markle has chosen to stay mum and keep to herself and her new royal family duties. The only thing Samantha Markle can do is apologize. And wait.
