Is Samantha Markle’s Apology to Half-Sister Meghan Markle Sincere?
After months of publicly bashing Meghan Markle her half-sister, Samantha Markle, has finally decided to apologize to the duchess but many are wondering why now and if she’s being sincere.
The former actress’ estranged sibling, who also goes by Samantha Grant, announced that she was traveling to London in late September to speak to Prince Harry’s wife face to face. That obviously didn’t happen so of course, Samantha decided to spend her time there appearing on British TV to talk about Meghan, however, she was singing a different tune than normal.
On Oct. 1, during an appearance on Jeremy Vine’s talk show, the host asked Samantha if she had a message for the Duchess of Sussex.
“I would just say that there is so much water under the bridge and so much has spun out of control that was never intended to,” she replied. “And you know, I think everybody was hurt not being included or invited to the wedding, but I felt as though it could have all been nipped in the bud had everyone been included, and we all just agreed to move forward with positive resolve. The hurt feelings wouldn’t have snowballed, but believe it or not, it doesn’t mean that we love you any less, I just think that families can be this way when there’s confusion and people are hurt. So moving forward, I apologize and wish things could be different.”

While her apology may seem sincere not everyone is buying it especially since we’re so used to hearing her badmouth the former Suits star so often. Ever since Meghan and Prince Harry announced their engagement, Samantha has taken every opportunity and even admitted to trying to cash in on her half-sister’s fame. In addition to blabbing to the press every chance she was given, she also announced that she was writing a tell-all book titled The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister. And, it was just last month that Samantha was hurling elementary insults at Meghan via her personal Twitter account.
“I am not candy coating anything anymore! The DUCHASS should be humane to our father who has given her everything… and this media crap can stop! He was the one who was always there for her. Fake waves and smiles can stop. The duchASS can bow to the daddy,” Samantha wrote.
A few days later she decided to slam Harry on his birthday and compared him to a hamster. When Vine pressed her about that she claimed her tweet about the prince “was meant to be funny.”
Even if Samantha is truly sorry for her actions it seems unlikely that Meghan would pick up the phone and chat with her because the two have been estranged for more than a decade now. On top of that, it’s been reported that the two, who are 17 years apart, were never close. Samantha’s own mother, Roslyn, has even said that the half-sisters never got along great in the first place.
“I am very serious when I say she [Samantha] has dogged on Meghan forever. She has never liked Meghan and she’s always been jealous of her,” Roslyn admitted.
The duchess has also been estranged from her and Samantha’s father, Thomas Markle, for several months after he too decided to run to the press and gossip about his daughter and the royal family.
Markle has not responded to Thomas’ on-camera interviews or Samantha’s apology.
