Meghan Markle’s sister, Samantha, has issued a weak apology to the Duchess of Sussex for constantly calling her out in media interviews.
“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,” Samantha, 53, said on the “Jeremy Vine” show on Monday.
“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.”
This is the first time Samantha is showing good will toward Ms Markle.
Samantha’s publicist Robert Cooper says she [Samantha] attempted to pay Meghan, 37, a visit at Kensington Palace but the Duchess – whom Samantha only recently referred to as “duchASS” – hasn’t responded to their requests to meet.
Last week, Cooper tweeted: “Samantha Markle is coming to the UK. 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 have refused to respond. I fear Meghan may not be made aware of these discreet attempts and therefore making this public is the only option we have left.
“I currently have Samantha in Europe with just one short flight away. This doesn’t need to be public, we would prefer to keep this private. Samantha is coming to the UK this week, like it or not,” said Mr Cooper.
Meghan has been estranged from Samantha and their father, Thomas Markle, ever since Thomas was busted staging paparazzi photos at Samantha’s request ahead of the royal wedding in May, 2018.
