What Would It Take for Meghan Markle and Her Father to Make Peace?

Unless you are completely out of the circle, you know all too well about the drama Meghan Markle is currently experiencing with her family. Most of the drama comes from Meghan’s half-sister, Samantha Markle, who bashes the duchess in interviews and on social media.

Many Meghan fans have speculated in recent months that Samantha is just looking for attention, and Meghan is refusing to dive in.

In addition to the drama caused by Samantha, Meghan has been alienated from her father, Thomas Markle, since her marriage to Prince Harry. She even went so far as to send him a letter to which he did not respond. Chances are: Meghan is extremely wounded and fans wonder what it will mean for the duchess and her father to make peace?

Still love you

Although he originally intended to walk his daughter down the aisle, Thomas Markle walked back at the last minute. Meghan did not publicly share her disappointment, but it could not have been easy not to let her father participate in one of the most important events in her life. Prince Charles gracefully guided Meghan down the aisle to her waiting prince. Meghan will always wish Thomas could have been there.

Her father shared her private letter with the world

When Meghan sent a letter to her father expressing her hurt feelings, he did not stop there. Instead, he shared it with the whole world, much to Meghan’s disappointment.

She wrote the letter to try to put an end to the pain she felt, and instead her father chose to break her trust by letting millions in what Meghan only intended for him to read.

Thomas hasn’t made any known attempt to stop the drama Samantha is causing

Samantha Markle is Thomas’ oldest daughter and she has told news managers that she is close to her father. He is well aware of the intense drama that Samantha is causing for her younger sister, but he has made no known attempt to talk to her and stop her.

This probably makes Meghan feel as if her father is not worried about her feelings, something that makes the emotional pain much worse.

What will it take for Meghan and her father to make peace?

👑Thomas Markle Shares Private Photos, Letters From Daughter Meghan & I've Had Enough👑 *Trigger warning: This is a critical, candid assessment of Thomas Markle. To avoid nonpositive content, read no further.* Over the last year, Thomas Markle has told a story of neglect by his daughter. Meghan's only public statement was a supportive one when he was ill. Neither before nor after meeting Harry has Meghan discounted her father. He was to walk her down the aisle. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thomas's latest attempt to drum up sympathy actually proves how much Meghan loved & trusted him—& why she no longer can. He told The Mail on Sunday, “Everyone says Meghan can’t speak to me because I’ll give away secrets. But that’s bull****.” Yet, in a spectacular display of cognitive dissonance, Markle almost immediately blurted out that Meghan & her fiancé Trevor gave wedding guests marijuana. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Next, he tried to stress the unfairness of his negative press by disparaging his son-in-law: “I’ve never played pool naked, nor have I dressed up as a Nazi.” He forgot to mention that Prince Harry was navigating an incredibly difficult situation under a microscope without the guidance of the mother tragically taken from him. Thomas also shared Meghan's wedding invitation, private photos & handwritten cards. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "But she lied about him paying for school! Why shouldn't he fight back?" There is nothing to fight. Markle paid for her to attend a private high school; she thanks him frequently in the material published by The Mail. There is nothing to suggest he paid for Northwestern. Like every other unprovable rumor, this red herring obscures fact. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sticking to the facts paints an unflattering picture of Markle: he continually accepts money for making public his daughter's treasured childhood artifacts & personal details, thus directly contravening Meghan's pleas for privacy. He call himself a victim, but his own actions have brought him here. Though I believe he loves his daughter as much as he can, these are not the actions of a man desperate to salvage a relationship, but a man eager to take advantage.

Because of all the ongoing drama, fans have wondered what it will cost Meghan and her father to finally bury the hatchet and make peace. As everyone knows, Meghan is going through an extremely exciting time in her life, expecting her first child with Prince Harry.

Because she is the compassionate, reasonable person she is, Meghan would certainly want nothing more than to let her father share in her joy. If the drama continues, Thomas will hurt his chances of ever having a relationship with his grandchild.

What needs to happen?

Most likely Meghan is probably looking for a sincere apology. She probably wants to have a personal conversation with her father, and let him say his word that if he progresses, he will hold private affairs between them and not talk to the media.

Meghan is probably looking for Thomas to process his mistakes, such as taking paparazzos and expressing his sincere remorse for his actions. It would be great for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex if Meghan’s father can be a part of their life, as well as the life of baby Sussex!
