Revealed: What Did Meghan Markle’s Sister Say About Her New York Trip?

It made headlines when Meghan Markle made a trip to New York City in order to attend a baby shower thrown by her close friends. The event seemed to be quite lavish, with deliveries such as extravagant floral arrangements and even a cotton candy machine.

Many high-profile guests attended the celebration, including Meghan’s former co-stars, as well as Amal Clooney, Serena Williams, and Jessica Mulroney. However, Meghan’s half-sister, Samantha Markle, publicly spoke out regarding Meghan’s trip to New York. This is not surprising, considering the many negative comments Samantha has posted to social media since her sister’s marriage to Prince Harry.

More details are coming out about Meghan Markle's baby shower in New York City yesterday, including direct testimony from one of Meghan's guests, CBS anchor Gayle King. King was on CBS This Morning, where she talked about what it was like to attend the party, along with the one thing Meghan held off doing during it for Prince Harry. While Meghan's guests filled a crib with gifts, and many were photographed carrying bags in, King explained that Meghan didn't open one single present there. "She didn’t open any of the gifts because she wants to do that when she and Harry are back together.” "A good time was had by all, that's what I'll say," King started when asked about the shower. Meghan is "a very private person," King prefaced it. "I think she should decide what wants to say about this, but I hope she won't mind me sharing this because I've never seen anything like this at a baby shower. They did flower decorations. They had flower arranging; they brought in someone to explain how to arrange flowers. We each all made an individual vase, and then Meghan at the very end got in touch with an organization I've never heard of but Repeat Roses, and all of those were donated to different charities. I thought that was a very sweet thing. It just speaks to who she is. She's very kind, she's very generous, and a really, really sweet person. I think her friends just wanted to celebrate her. Serena and her best friend who's been her best friend since she was 17, Genevieve [Hillis], and her friend Jessica Mulroney. Those were the three women who put it all together. It was a very, very small, private affair and just a very special time for her."

What did Samantha Markle say about Meghan Markle?

Rather than let her younger sister enjoy the happiness of being with her close friends and having a shower to celebrate the arrival of her first child, Samantha told news outlets that Meghan should take the opportunity to reach out to her estranged father while she is in the United States.

Unfortunately, it would appear that Samantha looks for just about any opportunity to talk to the media about Meghan, as well as take to social media to send messages to her sister. While Meghan did not publicly respond to what Samantha had to say, it is most likely causing additional stress for the pregnant Duchess, which is something that she certainly should not have to deal with at this time.

Did Thomas Markle respond?

So far, there has been no response from Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle Sr. He has given interviews as well, much to the disappointment of Meghan and the rest of the royal family. Fans can only wonder how Thomas would respond if Meghan did contact him, as he has publicly discussed how he feels that Meghan looks unhappy in her new role as a royal, and how she appears to be unnecessarily stressed by the pressure she is under on a daily basis.

Meghan certainly did not let her sister’s comments put a damper on the time that she spent with her close friends during her visit to New York. She was seen enjoying her days in the city, visiting upscale restaurants and bakeries, and even indulging in some shopping. Meghan was photographed looking extremely happy in the days leading up to her baby shower, so it is highly unlikely that her sister’s comments negatively affected her in any way!

Why is Samantha Markle causing so much drama?

Although Samantha has caused significant drama for both her sister and Prince Harry in recent months, it’s anyone’s guess as to why she chooses to do this. Some fans speculate that she is jealous of Meghan, while others feel she is just trying to attract some attention for herself and cash in on Meghan’s royal status.

In addition to commenting on social media and giving interviews, Samantha is in the process of releasing not one, but two tell-all books about her younger sister. This will likely make the situation between Meghan and her family even worse, causing more stress for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

What will happen next?

With the arrival of Meghan and Harry’s first child rapidly approaching, fans are hoping that the Markle family does not cause additional drama for the royal couple. Royal watchers are delighted that Meghan was able to visit New York City and have a wonderful time with close friends before the birth of the royal baby. This is an exciting time in Meghan and Harry’s lives, and everyone wants to see them enjoy it as much as possible!
