Calling Meghan's humanitarian work into question, Samantha criticized Meghan and Harry's ITV documentary during their tour of Africa.

Samantha slammed the documentary saying the after all the focus on her humanitarian work, Meghan still managed to make it about herself in ending the documentary by talking about how hard her royal life was. Since jumping starting Meghan's career with a voiceover deal with Disney, Samantha argued:

"The Disney move would have been fine if initiated after leaving royal roles but seems inappropriate prematurely. And disrespectful of royal protocol."

The possibility of a reconciliation between Meghan and Samantha does not look like it will happen anytime soon. However, she has expressed her desire for Meghan to make amends with her father, Thomas Markle.

It is reported, her brother Thomas Markle Jr also hopes that she establishes contact with their ailing father, who hasn't spoken to Meghan since 2018.
