Samantha Markle says Harry is questioning marriage to Meghan: 'It will end in divorce unless they get counseling'
'Maybe he is already questioning it. He has to be. If he has a functioning frontal lobe. Come on. He is not 12,' Samantha Markle said after the Sussexes' bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey
Meghan Markle's estranged half-sister, Samantha, has gone on record to predict that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will get a divorce in the near future if the former 'Suits' actress does not get her act straight.
The backlash came during a TMZ interview, which was published days after the royal couple sat down to speak to Oprah Winfrey for two hours during which they made a number of controversial claims, including the insinuation that some of the members of the royal family were racist, that there were talks about how dark their son Archie's skin was going to be when he was born, that Meghan received no help when it came to coping with the pressures of adjusting to palace life and more. It was clear from Samantha's words that she did not believe most of the claims made by her half-sibling.
"I see it ending in divorce unless they get extensive counseling and can agree to work on being honest, to work on apologies to everyone... I mean nothing about any of this has been honest and the damage to the royals has been massive especially now. Maybe he is already questioning it. He has to be. If he has a functioning frontal lobe. Come on. He is not 12. He was in the military. He got to have a sense of, oh my god, everything you said to me has been a lie. What man would be happy or comfortable with that?" she said.
She added: "And the minute I believe he starts dissenting or pulling back from her, I think it can get nasty. Unless there's a really good lawyer, or they have really good counselors. I don't know what it's gonna take." When Samantha was asked what it would take for Meghan to patch things up with their father, the former did not waste any time in blaming her half-sister for the fallout between her and Thomas Markle.
"She would have to apologize. A public apology. God, I know would be like getting blood from Iraq. But she did a lot of public damage with her dishonesty and her manipulation, domination, and control. Really? I mean, I really feel like this thing was so orchestrated that she needs to unravel the damage. She did a lot of damage to a man who gave her an incredible life. So hurtful, so wrong. She would need to make the first move. And I mean, parents are always unconditionally loving but god she really hurt him," she said.
Last week, Samantha, who is known to have an opinion about everything her famous sibling does and says, made it clear that she shares no sympathy for a troubled Meghan. Samantha said that she had little sympathy for her and actually accused Meghan of using her mental health as "an excuse" for treating people "like dishrags." "Depression is not an excuse for treating people like dishrags and disposing of them," she countered.
