Meghan Markle's sister Samantha calls her 'rude, hurtful, heartless and lacking a soul' for ignoring their father
Asking her to make contact with their father Thomas Markle over the holidays 'before it is too late', Samantha Markle told Meghan Markle in a scathing tweet
Looks like Samantha Markle will not stop using her half-sister Meghan Markle to get publicity anytime soon. Days after she published a Christmas letter to the Duchess of Sussex asking her to make contact with their father Thomas Markle over the holidays, Samantha has now written a scathing tweet addressed to her sister Meghan.
On Christmas day, while Meghan was attending church service with members of the royal family at Sandringham in Norfolk, Samantha changed her tune and tweeted, "I’ve never seen anyone so rude and hurtful and heartless and absent a soul in my life."
She continued, "Shame on you for what you have done to our father. No PR machine can fix this. I retract the Merry Christmas, you don’t deserve it. How dare you walk into a church." She added "Forgiven, reunite, and have the #Christmas spirit #Markle #KensingtonPalace and a peaceful heart? Apparently, you’re not capable and I don’t know enough profane words to articulate how I feel. Wow."
This comes after Samantha's not-so-formal letter to Meghan on the occasion of Christmas, which she decided to share with British tabloids, making her gesture extremely questionable at best. The holiday card that she wrote to Meghan read: "This is not meant to be formal. The holidays are a time for family and are sentimental. As you know, dad has been trying to contact you and is very hurt because you are avoiding him."
She continued, "Life is short and you know dad is wonderful. Please give him joy in his last years by showing that you love him. The time is NOW. Please think about this." Samantha signed off the letter with the words: "Your sister, Samantha."
Samantha, who has a new book coming out approximately at the same time when the pregnant Duchess is due, also told tabloids later, "Dad could die before next Christmas. I’m hoping that won’t be the case, but it would be tragic and sad if he doesn’t get to be around to resolve this." She added, "I think Meg would harbor a lot of regret if this were his last Christmas alive and she didn’t reach out and make things right."
Previously, Meghan's half-sister had also made some extremely rude remarks about her and her husband Prince Harry's official holiday card. At the time, Samantha hit Twitter to respond to the photo posted by Kensington Palace writing, "Interesting that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have their backs turned. Is this towards the world or just the Ragland and Markle family? It’s a bit sad. Face the Christmas spirit."
"It’s incredibly rude to turn your back in a Christmas photo that is meant to share warmth and good wishes with the world," she wrote in another tweet. "Those that criticize me for pointing out the truth, need to get that brown stuff off their noses. I hear the worlds smallest violin playing."
