The Duchess of Sussex and her family have been the topic of gossip for some time now. Meghan Markle is experiencing unnecessary drama from her father, brother, and her sister, Samantha Grant. Her family is giving her a hard time every time they can through social media, interviews, and even by using staged paparazzi photographs.
Nevertheless, neither Meghan nor Prince Harry seems to be paying too much attention and they are dealing with this challenging situation privately. There haven’t been any public comments about this matter from the royal family so far. However, actual pictures of Meghan with her family from the past can be seen, which leads to people wondering whether it has always been rough for them or they used to have a close relationship. Well, let’s take a closer look into Meghan’s family drama.
The Family Drama
The Markle family is causing an unnecessary and rather petty drama for the Duchess of Sussex. The most vocal person from the family has been her half-sister, Samantha Grant, who lives in Ocala, Florida. Samantha has given a number of interviews to the news media and in each one of them, she claims that her famous younger sister is selfish, fake, and heartless. Moreover, Meghan’s half-brother wrote Prince Harry a letter prior to their wedding advising him not to marry Meghan.
The Reasons Behind All This Drama
You must be wondering that are the reasons Meghan’s family members are doing this. Well, there are a number of reasons according to fans, but the most probable one is attention. The Markle family is looking for attention and are probably trying to cash in on Meghan’s new role. Her sister admitted that she is being paid a substantial amount of money for the interviews, as well as, the new tell-all book about Meghan. It has been reported that Samantha Grant has earned more than 100,000 euros from this drama.
When Did the Markle Family Drama Start?
The family drama which is causing plenty of trouble for the Duchess of Sussex began as soon as Meghan and Harry announced their engagement. So, first Samantha started criticizing her half-sister and talking negative things about the engagement photos. She also claimed that Meghan wasn’t a good daughter to their father. The drama escalated when Meghan’s siblings weren’t invited to the wedding and when the couple announced that they are about to have their first child.
Samantha Went to London
Yes, you have read that right. Soon after the wedding, Samantha made a trip to London and went to the Kensington Palace with an aim to speak with her sister. There were photos of her trying to enter the palace. Nevertheless, she wasn’t allowed to come in and Meghan hasn’t tried to contact her half-brother or half-sister since she became part of the royal family.
Prince Harry’s Feelings
In spite of the fact that none of the royal family has made a public comment regarding this drama, it is believed that Prince Harry is pretty angry. He is very protective of his wife, but it’s not known whether he contacted and tried to settle things down with the Markle family. Moreover, even though the Markle family have never met Prince Harry, they have made negative comments about him as well.
Is the Damage Irreparable?
The Duchess of Sussex is very hurt and disappointed from all the drama her family has caused her. Thus, it is very possible that the damage is already done and that there is no going back. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex want to keep their lives private and focus on their child which is soon to be born. We are all hoping that the Markle family drama will end as soon as the baby is born and that Prince Harry and Meghan can enjoy their parenthood without any additional stress.
