It was a fairytale wedding that turned a former TV star (“Suits”) into a princess (but in keeping with British protocol and etiquette Markle is actually now the Duchess of Sussex).
Nothing like becoming royalty to turn your family into a royal pain. According to ET Canada, Markle’s half-sister called her out on Twitter Tuesday night because the new duchess is ignoring their father who has been talking to tablids and tv shows and getting paid for those interviews.
According to Cosmo Magazine “A source already told Entertainment Tonightthat couple is “frustrated he keeps speaking to the tabloids and taking payment for interviews” and because of this, they “haven’t had any contact” with him. And um, Meghan’s sister Samantha Markle is pissed.”
Markle posted an article paying tribute to Nelson Mandela and her sister Samantha tweeted in response, “How about you pay tribute to your own father?! Enough is enough. Act like a humanitarian, act like a woman! If our father dies I’m holding you responsible, Meg!” Samantha added to the insults with, “Glad you have so much time to gallivant around paying tribute to others while ignoring your own father! How cold can you be and look in the mirror? Harry? I guess I was right.” Apparently, Daddy Markle has been making the rounds on TV talk shows about how he wants to reconnect with Meghan(apparently they were estranged before the wedding) and it seems the folks at Kensington Palace kind of frown upon that kind of negative publicity. Markle’s father Thomas claims his daughter has shut him out of her life since he did interviews about his daughter. He pleaded in a TV interview for the royals to “break the silence. All they have to do is my speak to me.” Sounds like sister Samantha is doing enough talking for everybody and dragging her sister not so much out of sibling rivalry as much simple jealousy.
