Meghan Markle's estranged sister has always been vocal about the strained relationship between them. This time, her reaction and request following the birth of the Royal baby are sending out shock waves.
The moment Prince Harry announced the birth of his unnamed son by Meghan Markle, it became top news, and since good tidings travel fast, it soon got to Samantha Markle, the Duchess' elder sister.
Samantha and her sister in the past nine years, especially since her marriage into the Royal family have barely spoken. The Virginia Beach resident lashed out several times at the former actress' decision to not include their father, Thomas Markle Sr., in her wedding, but things seem to be taking a new turn.
The birth of her nephew appears to have calmed the nerves of the senior Markle daughter, and now, she is sending out an olive branch to the new mum, with the hope of getting a chance to meet her nephew someday and be a part of his life.
In an exclusive interview with "DailyMail," Samantha revealed that she found out about her new aunt status from a friend, and is excited and happy for her sister.
The 54-year-old said she wants Meghan to know that her family shares in her joy and she believes the baby will grow up to become someone exceptional.
The mother-of-three equally used it as an opportunity to call on the former "Suits" star to mend fences with their father and allow him to see his grandson as life is too short.
The senior Markle also shared this view in his statement to "The Sun." The 74-year-old congratulated his daughter and Prince Harry and wished his grandson a happy and healthy life. He added that he knows the baby will grow up to serve the people of Britain with "grace, dignity, and honor."
The father-of-three made it known that he fears the fact that his 37-year-old daughter would not let him see his grandson or be a part of his life. However, he is hopeful that things will change and has refused to give any further comment.
Samantha has a history of falling out with her family and is close only to her father and children. The outspoken woman is a mental health counselor and currently resides with her boyfriend, Mark Phillips.
In 2008, she got diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and last year, it was reported that she was put on the watch list by the British government as someone obsessed with the Royal family. Samantha denied this claim and called it an attempt by the British media to silence her.
One thing that is for sure is that the outspoken Samantha will not keep quiet, and with social media as her friend, the world will still hear from her.
