Samantha Markle Continues To Lambast Meghan Markle During Interviews

Throughout the past couple of years, Samantha has sat down for a slew of interviews where she criticized Markle. Last month, the author of Princess Pushy’s Sister accused the Suits alum of negligence after their dad, Thomas Markle Sr., was rushed to a hospital due to a suspected stroke.

During her appearance on Dan Wooton Tonight, Samantha said that her dad has been through so much.

“Two heart attacks, a pandemic, and now a stroke. None of us have heard from Meghan — that’s negligence. If she can’t find it in her heart or have the moral conscience to step forward, then shame on her. She sees all of this. I’m getting the feeling that I would be spinning my wheels to try and appeal to her heart now. It’s a travesty how much he’s been tortured and how much he’s had to go through thanks to my sister’s disregard for the past few years. That’s unforgivable,” Samantha said (via Page Six).

However, there was also at least one occasion wherein Samantha apologized to Markle for her behavior. In 2018, Samantha told Jeremy Vine that she wishes things could be different.

“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. 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...The hurt feelings wouldn't have snowballed... 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,” she said (via USA Today).
