Meghan Markle's half-sister Samantha wants Prince Harry to "grow up" on his 34th birthday
Meghan Markle's estranged sister Samantha has written a birthday message to Prince Harry on his 34th birthday urging him to welcome Meghan's father Thomas Markle into their lives
September 15 is Prince Harry's birthday and, as wishes are pouring in, Meghan Markle's estranged half-sister Samantha Markle is leaving no stones unturned reach out to him and end the family feud.
It has been revealed that Samantha Markle has issued a desperate plea to the Duke of Sussex as he turns 34 on Saturday. The estranged half-sister pleads the Prince to “bury the hatchet” amid the furious family row between Meghan and their father Thomas.
She urges Harry to use this year to “grow up”, be a “role model to William and Kate’s children”, “do what Diana would want” and “be a man”.
53-year-old Samantha told Daily Star Online in her birthday message: “Harry, how old do you have to get before you realize it's time to bury the hatchet and be a gentleman and extend an olive branch to our dad?" she questions.
"A birthday is a time to reflect on life and what is really important. Seize the moment to do the right thing. Not to mention the fact that William and Kate's children will soon be reading about all of this. They will see every action and reaction. You'd be amazed what kids come across in cyberspace. Kids will be looking to their mom and dad for guidance on how to treat others. Ignore your whole family if you have a disagreement is not the lesson that should be promoted," she adds.
“I hope this year brings you one step closer to being a mature man with an open heart and demonstrating it by communicating with our father. They say that with age comes wisdom. Let's see.”
Samantha, who suffers from multiple sclerosis, also told Daily Star Online that Harry should “make his mum proud by fixing this.”
She adds: “Like so many people, my impression was that Diana was kind, loving and compassionate… I have a feeling she might say it's best to be a man and do the right thing to fix this before it's too late."
Further adding: “I think she would be proud of him for fixing this.”
Samantha’s message comes just days after she launched another scathing attack at her Duchess half-sister on social media. She slammed Meghan’s treatment of their dad, accusing her of "fake waves and smiles" and calling her a “DuchASS”.
In her new plea today, she begged Meghan to “do the right thing and be able to look in the mirror and be proud of yourself”.
She says: “My message to my sister would be that if you fix this and do the right thing you will look in the mirror and be proud of yourself because it is the mature and loving thing to do. And in doing so they will both become role model to children and even their own on how to resolve conflict in a loving way rather than through isolation."
“The eyes of the world are on them and they have a chance to demonstrate goodness. Do we act from ego or from the heart?” she questions.
Samantha’s plea also comes as Meghan and Thomas’s relationship reaches an all-time low following the staged paparazzi pictures. Meghan is said to have ignored her dad ever since the publicity stunt, sparking a series of furious outbursts from Thomas Senior.
He recently “reached his limit” and hit out at his royal daughter’s “sense of superiority”, letting rip: “You’d be nothing without me.”
He then admitted lying to Harry in a phone call over his staged pictures and said that he even hung up on the prince. And just weeks ago, he exploded yet again and likened the entire royal Family to Scientologists — accusing them of being “like a cult”.
