Meghan Markle’s estranged family is pleading for reunification in a TV interview
Meghan Markle’s estranged family shared never-before-seen home videos and pleaded for family reunion in a stunning interview on Sunday.
Meghan’s father Thomas, her younger brother Thomas and her sister Samatha said they had not spoken to the Duchess of Sussex in five years but would welcome her and Harry with open arms and would never give media interviews again if they did. the family can be reunited.
The American trio’s interview with Australia’s 7News Spotlight comes ahead of the 41-year-old’s absentee coronation next week by Markle’s father-in-law, King Charles.
The reluctant duchess and royal asked the basher’s family members what they would do if Meghan offered to sit with them if they agreed never to be interviewed again.
The family agreed to meet Meghan and even Prince Harry, as long as it was “a real meeting” and not a publicity stunt.
“He would have been called if he had walked out the door,” joked Thomas Jr. “Harry would have been called too.”
Markle’s father, Thomas Markle, who suffered a stroke last year, has made a “deathbed” plea to reconcile with his daughter, who has left him since marrying Prince Harry in May 2018.
According to Thomas, Megan did not reach out after the stroke.
“I wish we could sit down and talk. I wish we could resolve our differences,” said the 78-year-old. “He loved me. I am his hero. Suddenly I was kicked out.”
Meghan and Thomas clashed when it was revealed she was working with the paparazzi to stage photos showing her being measured for a suit for her wedding to Prince Harry in 2018.
Thomas was originally supposed to walk Meghan down the aisle, but after news broke of his engagement with the paparazzi, the Palace announced he would no longer be attending.
Never-before-seen home videos shared by Meghan’s family show her first brush with royalty – as homecoming princess in high school – while other videos capture her fishing and dancing with her family.
Thomas admitted to watching the videos “now and again.”
“We’ve been close all his life. He lived with me since the sixth grade. And I graduated from high school. I got it through college,” Thomas said.
When asked why they thought Meghan would distance herself from them in public, the trio said they feared she was “not good enough” for the royal family.
“What he said to the royal family, what he said to Harry, was untrue,” Samantha said.
Meghan’s only family member is her mother, Doria Ragland.
