Although her father suffered publicized medical issues, Meghan has not reached out to her family about his condition. So alleges Meghan’s older sister, Samantha, who is unhappy with the California-living actress.

Meghan Markle’s father, Thomas Markle, was hospitalized on Monday night for a possible stroke in Tijuana. But according to Meghan’s sister Samantha, the Suits actress has been “negligent” and has not contacted the family to check on the ailing father.

She aired her grievances on a British show, where she said that Meghan had not contacted the family for quite a while. Samantha had some choice words for her half-sister, Meghan, while explaining her father’s health problems. Meghan’s sister Samantha, 57, said of their father, Thomas, “He’s been through so much.”

Meghan’s relationship with Harry’s family has been famously rocky, with the two stepping down from Royal duties in 2020. She also had relationship problems with her own family. 

Meghan Markle’s sister Samantha has words for the actress

Meghan’s sister Samantha appeared on Dan Wootton Tonight, where she explained the serious nature of her father’s health woes. 

Samantha said, “Two heart attacks, a pandemic, and now a stroke. None of us have heard from Meghan — that’s negligence.”

Meghan has had a notably frosty relationship with her father, but her sister’s words suggest the strain extends beyond that of the father-daughter relationship. Meghan has had strained relationships with her immediate family, including her sister Samantha, but Harry’s family also.

Samantha said their father did not have a lot of time and suggested that Meghan may have to live with the decision not to reach out for the rest of her life. 

TMZ reported that Thomas Markle went by ambulance from Tijuana to Chula Vista, California on Monday after having stroke-like symptoms. Thomas had health problems before– previously suffered a heart attack before Meghan’s wedding to Prince Harry.

Meghan and Thomas Markle’s strained relationship

Meghan and her father, Thomas Markle, have had a touchy relationship for years. 

Allegedly, Meghan had a problem with Thomas speaking to the press. Things seemed to come to a head when a letter sent to Thomas ended up in the hands of the British tabloid, the Mail on Sunday, 

Meghan sent Thomas a personal letter in August 2018, and the Mail on Sunday published extracts from the letter in February 2019. 

The letter was the subject of a lawsuit, as Meghan sued the newspaper for breach of copyright, infringement of privacy, and breaches of the Data Protection Act. Meghan was ultimately victorious with her lawsuit against the newspaper.

Meghan and Harry currently live in Montecito, California with their two children, Archie and Lilibet.

It’s time for her to put her complaints aside and come together with her family. She’ll be sorry later if she doesn’t stop this pettiness. Her children deserve to know their grandfather and other family members. They will certainly resent her later for depriving them of a relationship with her family. Only a small-minded person (which she has already proved to be over the past six years) would put her own selfish pettiness ahead of the future happiness of her children. It’s time to stop this, Megan. It’s time to STOP.

The father and sister created all this drama They wanted to jump on the Royal bandwagon. They have done nothing but make horrible comments, even filing suit! Troubled people and I don’t blame Meghan and Harry for steering clear of them. They only want fame and money from Meghan!

MM is a scheming, two-faced hypocrite. In a communication that was made public, she admitted she called him Daddy so she would look good if communications were made public. Her mindset is focused on “How can I work this to benefit ME? How can I use people to MY advantage?” The gold digger is the one who wants publicity, position, and money.
