Meghan Markle criticized her estranged half-sister Samantha Markle in the Netflix docuseries “Harry & Meghan,” accusing Samantha Markle of misrepresenting their relationship in light of Meghan’s royal prominence.
“Suddenly, it felt like she was everywhere,” the “Suits” alum remarked, revealing that she hadn’t seen the 58-year-old in “over a decade” and “just for a day” prior to Samantha making headlines.
“I am unaware of your middle name. I do not know your birthdate,” the 41-year-old former actress continued. “Are you telling these folks that you reared me and gave me the nickname Princess Pushy?
Meghan said, “We had never had a disagreement.” “We were not close enough to be able to have it. I desired a sister!”
Meghan Markle and her mother, Doria Ragland, moved out of her father Thomas Markle’s home when she was 2 years old. The Duchess of Sussex stated that she did not recall seeing Samantha there.
In the “Harry & Meghan” documentary series, Meghan Markle addressed Samantha Markle’s assertions that they dated.
“The last time I recall seeing her was when I was in my early 20s,” the former “Deal or No Deal” contestant stated.
The statement read: “Samantha Markle maintains that she and Meghan had a close relationship until 2018 and that the media falsified her alleged quotes.”
Ashleigh Hale, Samantha’s daughter, stated in her own confessional that Samantha felt “resentment” toward Meghan as her connection with Prince Harry “seemed to get harsher and greater”
She stated, “We ceased speaking. There are those people with whom you simply cannot reason.”
Hale was adopted by her paternal grandparents as an infant, but in 2007 she “reconnected” with Samantha, which led to her developing a relationship with Meghan through Thomas.
Samantha has made news for disparaging her estranged half-sister over the years.
“We began exchanging lengthy emails, followed by text messages and phone calls,” Hale remembered. “After awhile, I guess we were talking on some level multiple days a week.”
Meghan agreed with Hale’s description of her as a “maternal” figure, a “sister,” and a “best friend.”
Meghan claims they were never “close” enough to have a “breakup.”
The “Archetypes” podcast host and Hale “hit it off” because “we both sought the same thing,” he claimed. “I desired a sister, and she was comparable to one.”
From her “tell-all” biography, “The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister Part 1,” to her comments accusing Meghan of putting “money before family” in 2020 and of having “narcissistic personality disorder” in 2021, Hale’s mother has repeatedly attacked Meghan over the years.
Samantha sued Meghan in March of the following year for allegedly “false and malicious remarks” made in her and Harry’s explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.
In June court documents, the co-creator of Archewell’s attorney labeled the defamation claim “meritless,” stating, “Courts are not competent to assess the legitimacy of a person’s feelings regarding their childhood and relationships.” They should not be.”
