Why is Meghan Markle’s Estranged Half-Sister, Samantha Grant, Traveling to London?
If you follow the royal family, you’ve surely heard of Meghan Markle’s half-sister, Samantha Grant. Grant jumped into the spotlight last year when she began slamming the actress-turned-royal for being a social climber. She’s then gone back and forth between speaking ill of Meghan and then telling the press she’s an amazing person. Grant talks to any outlet that will give her a platform and was particularly vocal about not being invited to the royal wedding — despite not seeing Meghan for many many years.
Now, the Daily Mail is reporting Grant is making a trip across the pond. Does this mean she’s finally going to see Meghan face to face?
For starters, here’s why she’s going to London
Grant’s publicist, Rob Cooper, announced on Twitter that the purpose of Grant’s visit is to meet with her half-sister to discuss their father. “After making numerous attempts in private to arrange a one on one meeting with The Duchess of Sussex to discuss their 74-year-old father’s health, Kensington Palace has refused to respond,” he wrote. He continued to say the meeting “DOESN’T need to be public, we would prefer to keep this private.” (Is it just us, or is talking about the meeting on Twitter doesn’t not a very good way of keeping the matter private?)
This, of course, isn’t the first time Grant has tried reaching out to the Duchess of Sussex via social media regarding their father, Thomas Markle Sr. She has regularly slammed Meghan for allegedly being ungrateful to their father for helping her get her acting career off the ground.
The subject was brought up again in Grant’s most recent Twitter rampage, in which she slams both the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in a tweet on Prince Harry’s birthday. “The DUCHASS should be humane to our father who has given her everything, ” she chirped. “He was the one who was always there for her. Fake waves and smiles can stop. The duchASS can bow to the daddy.”
Doesn’t seem like the best way to convince someone to meet up and talk to you, does it?
Is there any chance she’ll meet up with Meghan?
Not surprisingly, chances Grant actually sees her royal half-sibling are slim to none.
According to a friend of Meghan’s, there’s “not a chance in hell” the two will see each other. “Samantha is kidding herself if she thinks there is any possibility of getting together with Meghan, or anyone from the royal family for that matter.”
She adds that the half-sisters “‘are not close in the slightest. They never have been and it’s doubtful they ever will be, especially after all of Samantha’s name-calling and bullying.”
Will Grant then go to extraordinary lengths to see her sister?
All that remains to be seen.
