When we found out the wonderful news that Meghan had accepted a marriage proposal from Harry, we also began hearing less than positive things from her sister, Samantha. She began bashing Meghan on social media, calling her unflattering and insulting nicknames, and even saying that she would blame the duchess if their father were to pass away. Samantha even tried to visit her sister at Kensington Palace, although security would not allow her access.

Does Meghan Markle still have family drama?

Samantha was hoping for an invite to the royal wedding and did not hide her disappointment when she did not receive one. However, this gave her even more ammunition to stay in the spotlight and speaking to the media. Samantha continued to give interviews whenever the opportunity arose and made sure to keep up with the hurtful social media posts. 

Have things changed with Baby Archie’s arrival?

Within a few months of the wedding, it was announced that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were expecting their first child. Samantha seemed to embrace the opportunity to create even more drama, this time expressing her beliefs that the Markle family should be included in the baby’s life. Fans, as well as the news media, speculated as to whether Samantha would travel to England upon the birth of the baby. Ultimately, she did not, although she certainly did not keep quiet when Archie Harrison finally arrived.

Ever since Baby Archie arrived, Samantha has managed to keep herself in the media spotlight. She continues to talk to the media on a regular basis, stating that she still has love for her younger sister and that she still considers her to be family. Samantha is making an effort to reach out to her sister, and encourage her to introduce the new royal baby to their father, Thomas Markle. As usual, neither Meghan nor Harry have made any public comments regarding the issue, leaving many fans to assume that she has no intention of reconciling with her estranged family members.
