Will Meghan Markle’s Family Cause More Drama When Baby Sussex Is Born?

It is no secret among fans of the royal family that Meghan Markle has been dealing with intense family drama since before her wedding to Prince Harry. It seems that her half-sister, Samantha Markle, as well as her half-brother and father are more than willing to talk to the media every chance they get and make hurtful comments about the Duchess of Sussex and her marriage.

Meghan has been handling the entire situation with grace and dignity, even after it was announced Samantha would be writing a tell-all book about her sister. However, with the arrival of Baby Sussex coming very soon, the question remains as to whether Meghan’s family will cause even more drama after the birth.

What has Meghan Markle’s family done so far?

Ever since Meghan and Harry announced their engagement, Meghan’s family has been cashing in on any opportunity they possibly can. Samantha Markle has appeared on several talk shows and has constantly been making hurtful comments about her estranged half-sister on social media. She has been known to make outrageous claims about Meghan, and even about Harry, who she has never met. Thomas Markle, Meghan’s father, famously staged paparazzi photos a few days before the royal wedding, bringing negative attention to himself as well as Harry’s family.

Did Markle’s family attend the wedding?

Although Samantha was in London at the time Meghan married Prince Harry, she did not receive an invite to the royal wedding, nor did Meghan’s brother. They both expressed their hurt at the situation, which did not seem to faze Meghan and Harry. They stayed true to what they believed in and did not comment on who they chose to invite or not invite to their nuptials.

Although Thomas Markle was planning to walk his daughter down the aisle, he was forced to cancel at the last minute due to health issues (and after he was caught staging paparazzi photos), leaving Meghan’s mother as the only family member in attendance.

Since Meghan and Harry announced they are expecting their first child, Meghan’s family has been going out of their way to create tension and drama for the expecting parents. The Duchess of Sussex has received letters from her brother, advising her that allowing the baby to have a relationship with her father and siblings is the best thing to do. While Meghan and Harry have not responded to these letters, it is certainly causing some unneeded stress for the couple.

How are they handling the situation?

It appears as if Meghan and Harry are handling the situation simply by keeping quiet. They are not expressing any sadness or anger regarding the behavior of Meghan’s family, nor have they released any statements. Although the Queen has suggested that she feels Meghan should repair her family relationships, the Duchess has not made an effort to do so. Harry is standing by Meghan’s side and supporting the decisions that she has made so far. Looks like the royal couple is doing what they think is best for their baby and not letting anyone influence their actions!

Who will be a part of the baby’s life?

The royal family, including Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Camilla, and Prince William and Kate Middleton are all eagerly anticipating the baby’s arrival! Doria Ragland, Meghan’s mother, is said to be beyond excited for the birth of her first grandchild. Whether or not Meghan reaches out to any of her other family members before or even after the baby is born remains to be seen, and royal fans are sure that she will make the decision that works best for herself and Harry.

Congratulations to Meghan and Harry on their upcoming arrival!
