Meghan Markle’s estranged half-sister believes the Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry are on the outs — and alleges her reluctant royal relative is trying to upstage King Charles III’s Saturday coronation.
Samantha Markle, 58, based her breakup claim on Meghan’s apparent rebuke of a kiss-camera smooch from Harry when the pair showed up at a Los Angeles Lakers game last month — spilling the gossip during an interview with GBNews released Tuesday.
It’s so different and so inconsistent with her character, Samantha told the outlet. Previously in all the photographs she was pining over him, putting her hands all over him, grabbing his hands, grabbing his back.
So what’s up with this? Is this a symbol of separation? This is different. This is seemingly a statement on her part that she’s not all that touchy-feely right now.
It’s kind of sad. It’s telling the rest of the world, all of us, that they are at an impasse and maybe they’re making decisions to part, said Samantha, who has not had a relationship with Markle, 41, since 2014, according to The Irish Mirror. The two share the same father, Thomas Markle.
The estranged half-sis suggested the royal couple need professional help.
They have to work that out, but in the meantime, they have to work out how they treat everybody around them, not only for the past, but moving forward, she advised. And so hopefully, maybe counseling intervention could help.
Samantha, who suddenly emerged with her father and half-brother Thomas Jr. to call for a family reunion last week, also suggested Meghan was using the upcoming coronation to get publicity for herself.
Meghan is skipping the coronation festivities, remaining home for son Archie’s birthday in California while Harry makes a rare trek home for his dad’s big day.
The former “Suits” actress has signed with a Hollywood agency amid speculation she reportedly wants to host a talk show.
It seems like a PR opportunity near the coronation, Samantha noted amid her own media blitz ahead of King Charles’ crowning.
[Meghan and Harry] need to just step back. Keep all of the drama aside and be considerate, be unselfish, be loving, be forgiving for whatever you hold in the way of a grudge and just move forward, she advised.
Meghan’s estranged family members told Australia’s 7NEWS Spotlight they believe she had cut ties with them because they aren’t “good enough” for royalty.
Samantha sued Meghan for $75,000, claiming the duchess defamed her by telling Oprah Winfrey in 2021 she grew up as an only child, subjecting Samantha to “humiliation and hatred.”
