Meghan Markle‘s estranged family recently participated in a tell-all interview where they made shocking revelations and accused the Duchess of Sussex of continuously lying about them.
The interview, which took place just days before the coronation of King Charles III, was the family’s attempt to set the record straight and share their perspective.
Here are the five biggest bombshells from their interview:
1. A Broken Bond: Meghan Markle and Her Father’s Four-Year Silence
During the interview, Markle’s father, Thomas Markle, revealed that he and Meghan have not spoken since their public falling out in 2018.
This estrangement has continued even after Thomas suffered a stroke in 2022. Thomas expressed his disappointment, questioning why his health crisis didn’t prompt a reconciliation.
He made a heartfelt plea to his daughter, expressing his desire for reunification and stating that he is open to any kind of conversation.
Thomas also expressed his longing to meet his grandchildren, whom he has never had the opportunity to see.
2. Toxic Love: Samantha Markle’s Claims about Meghan and Prince Harry’s Relationship
Samantha Markle, Meghan’s half-sister, described the relationship between Prince Harry and Meghan as “toxic.”
She claimed that they are “very unhealthy for each other.”
Samantha’s remarks shed light on the dynamics within the couple’s relationship. Prince Harry and Meghan met in 2016 and had a secretive six-month courtship before going public.
They got engaged in November 2017 and married in May 2018. The couple has two children together, Archie and Lilibet.
3. Sibling Secrets: Samantha and Thomas Jr. Challenge Meghan’s Claims of Growing Up Alone
Both Samantha and Thomas Jr., Meghan’s half-sister and half-brother, disputed Meghan’s claim that she grew up as an only child.
They asserted that they were part of her childhood and were present during her upbringing.
Samantha and Thomas Jr. revealed their disappointment with Meghan’s statement, with Thomas Jr. even remarking that it was another lie.
This contradicts Meghan’s previous statements made during her interview with Oprah Winfrey and the Netflix docuseries “Harry & Meghan.”
4. Family Deception: Samantha Markle Accuses Meghan of Lying to the Royal Family
Samantha Markle accused Meghan of lying to the royal family when she met them.
According to Samantha, Meghan’s portrayal of her family to the royals was inconsistent with the truth.
Samantha believed that Meghan felt she needed to inflate her background and exclude her family in order to be accepted by the royals.
Samantha expressed her belief that Meghan did not think she or her family were good enough, despite their middle-class upbringing and her father’s sacrifices.
Samantha criticized Meghan for engaging in self-glorification and neglecting the contributions of her family.
5. Letter Leaked: Thomas Markle’s Decision to Share Part of Meghan’s Controversial Letter
Thomas Markle disclosed that he leaked part of a letter sent to him by Meghan after their initial falling out.
He claimed that Queen Elizabeth had suggested that Meghan write the letter to her father. Thomas characterized the letter as “horrible, insulting, and cruel.”
He explained that he released part of the letter to the Daily Mail to present his side of the story since Meghan had shared it with others who were speaking to the American press.
Thomas stated that he chose not to release the entirety of the letter out of consideration for Meghan.
He also expressed his willingness to refrain from doing further interviews if Meghan would reunite with her estranged family.
