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?
Thomas Markle did not come to the wedding
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?
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!
