Samantha Markle, the estranged half-sister of Meghan Markle has called on the new Duchess of Sussex to “do the right thing” and reunite their family in the wake of the royal wedding.
Samantha says she was inspired by Bishop Michael Curry’s message of love at Meghan’s wedding inside St George’s Chapel.
I watched the bishop talk about love and unity and forgiveness and I hoped it would strike a chord within Meghan.I
feel a religious and moral obligation to be open to her and not be vindictive or isolating or hurt. This should ride on her conscience as a moral obligation to at some point communicate with me and be united rather than divided – as that was the whole message.
Samantha reportedly made money out of Meghan’s wedding by watching her half-sister wed from her home in Florida, alongside a television crew in a paid-for appearance. Her partner Mark Phillips, 60, suggested the appearance was earning her a five-figure sum.
A satellite truck was parked outside Samantha’s Floridia house during the wedding From outside his home, Mark told newsmen who tried to interview Samantha as she watched the royal wedding.
Samantha also took the chance to lash out at the Royal family, saying that their family dramas were far greater than the Markle’s. She said:
Well the royals had generations of scandal in their own family. You’ve got inbreeding, you’ve got substance abuse, you’ve got alcohol abuse, you’ve got infidelity.
She also attacked the royal family for their decision not to give her father a coat of arms – unlike the other fathers of commoners who marry into royalty.
