Samantha Markle SLAMS Meghan’s humanitarian credentials for ignoring dad on Father’s Day
MEGHAN Markle’s half-sister Samantha Markle has accused the Royal of ignoring their father on Father’s Day, and has insisted she is not concerned with his welfare in a shocking attack.
The Florida resident claimed the Duchess had abandoned her “PR” plans to visit Mr Markle following her wedding to Prince Harry at St George’s Chapel in Windsor last month.
In a direct attack on the Duchess’ humanitarian credentials, Samantha said: “Humanitarians do not ignore their fathers… Meg.”
She also accused Meghan of abandoning her previous plans to visit their father following her nuptials.
She said: “Happy Fathers Day to all of the self-sacrificing fathers who gave us everything that we are.
If you’re so worried about Dad, demonstrate it
“Maybe a Father’s Day visit after the PR stunt said a visit would happen, would be appropriate. Ya think?
“If you’re so worried about Dad, demonstrate it.”
The Duchess instead attended the wedding of Prince Harry’s cousin Celia McCorquodale at St. Andrew and St. Mary’s Church in Stoke Rochford, Lincolnshire on Father’s Day.
Ms McCorquodale is the daughter of Princess Diana’s sister Lady Sarah McCorquodale.
Kensington Palace has refused to state whether Meghan intends to visit her father in Mexico following his health scares in the run up to the Royal Wedding.
Meghan nevertheless released a statement prior to her nuptials expressing her sadness at the absence of her father.
She said: “Sadly my father will not be attending our wedding.
“I have always cared for my father and hope he can be given the space he needs to focus on his health.”
Samantha launched a series of attacks against the Duchess and her mother prior to the Royal Wedding, and appeared numerous times on UK television.
She claimed Doria Ragland, the Duchess’ mother, had “cashed in” on her daughter’s new status.
Writing on Twitter, she said: “Even Doria cashed in talking to Oprah and some of the first photos out there only she could have had”.
Samantha and other extended members of the Markle family were not invited to the Royal Wedding on May 19.
Meghan’s mother was the sole member of her family to attend the nuptials after her father pulled out last minute due to health problems.
