Meghan thinks she's 'above' Markle family and won't talk to them again: Relative
During an interview, the anonymous insider lashed out at Meghan Markle for her treatment of her family
A relative of Meghan Markle has reportedly claimed that she "won't ever talk to her family again" because she believes she's in a "different social class" now and therefore "above them and where she came from".
During an interview with Fox News, the anonymous insider lashed out at the Duchess of Sussex, 39, for her treatment of her family, insisting that her relatives also did not wish to reconcile with her. "We're clearly in different social classes and we won't ever talk again," the source, who did not reveal their relation to the mother-of-two, said of Meghan. "You shouldn't have to be someone you're not, or a certain class to be accepted and loved," they added.
This comes just days after Meghan and her husband, Prince Harry, welcomed their second child to the world — a baby daughter named Lilibet 'Lili' Diana in honor of the Queen and the late Princess Diana.
It's worth noting that the Sussexes moved much closer to Meghan's family when they relocated to her home state of California last year. They currently live in a $14 million mansion in Montecito with their two-year-old son Archie and newborn daughter Lili. Meghan's relative offered congratulations to the couple on the birth of their second child. However, they admitted they don't believe there is ever going to be a playdate between Meghan's children and their Markle cousins despite their physical proximity. In fact, the source quipped that a meeting with Oprah Winfrey would be just as likely to take place.
The rift between Meghan and her family is "her choice" entirely, according to the Markle relative, who added that the family has no plans to mend the relationship because they do not want to "chase after someone that doesn't want to talk to" them.
Meghan is known to be extremely close to her mother, Doria Ragland, who is believed to be living with the Sussexes at the lavish Montecito property where she's reportedly helping them take care of Archie and his newborn sister. According to the Daily Mail, the duchess doesn't seem to have a tight bond with any other immediate family member.
Meanwhile, it can also be noted that this relative is barely the first of Meghan's family members to criticize her in public or accusing her of widening the rift between herself and them.
Meghan's estranged father Thomas Markle and her half-sister Samantha Markle have blasted the Sussexes on a number of occasions, most recently following their bombshell claims during a tell-all interview with Oprah in March. Both Thomas and Samantha slammed the couple following their TV sit-down, with the latter accusing the duchess of using her mental health struggles as "an excuse to treat people like dishrags."
During her primetime sit-down with Oprah, which aired on March 7, Meghan claimed she had had suicidal thoughts while pregnant with her son Archie and accused the palace of turning a blind eye to her mental health struggles.
