It’s no secret that Meghan Markle and her relatives have shared drama in the past. Now some of the ex-royal’s relatives are refusing to talk to her ever again.
Speaking on the condition of anonymity, the relative opened up in a new interview with Fox News that Markle, 39, developed the belief that she is above her estranged family after becoming a royal in 2018. On Wednesday, the family member spoke out against Meghan, telling Fox, “we’re clearly in different social classes, and we won’t ever talk again.”
Claiming the estrangement is Markle’s “choice,” the anonymous relative noted they have zero plans to chase after someone who “doesn’t want to talk” with them. The person who chose to remain anonymous said that they “couldn’t care less” if Meghan Markle chose to talk to them again, however that rarely seems the case since they chose to speak up about the situation in an interview.
While it’s unclear who the unnamed family member is, it’s no secret she has had issues with her father, Thomas Markle, in the past, and her strained family relationships have been well-documented. The rocky relationship between the two came into the spotlight in recent years. “Thomas infamously missed the chance to walk his daughter down the aisle after being caught apparently staging paparazzi photos just days before the royal wedding,” writes PageSix.
In addition to her father, Thomas, who has been critical of his daughter and son-in-law, the Duchess’ half-sister, Samantha Markle, has also repeatedly slammed her estranged sibling. Samantha has alleged that Meghan “spewed” lies about her.
The anonymous relative claims to want nothing but the best for Meghan Markle and her new family, “I’m happy for them,” the family member said. “Starting a family is the most rewarding thing, and I wish them the best.” The rocky relationship dates back to when Harry and Meghan first began their relationship. The relative also claimed that they are “not chasing after someone that doesn’t want to talk to me [them],” and seems as if they are trying to be above the family drama.
Family relationships take a lot of effort on both sides, and while Meghan may be holding back it doesn’t seem like this anonymous family member is willing to put in the work either. In their words they tell Fox that, “we’re clearly in different social classes and we won’t ever talk again.”
Talks of jealousy have always been on the table surrounding Meghan Markle’s relationship with the prince and her rise to stardom on Suits and induction into the British Royal Family. Jealousy also played a huge factor with Meghan’s half-sister, Samantha. Though Samantha claims, passive-aggressively, that she “was being honest from the beginning in hopes that it would appeal to her heart and her morality.”
While the identity of the anonymous relative may stay a secret, the feud between the Markles is quite public and well-known. It’s also clear that the relationship between Harry and his royal relatives is also strained. With both sides struggling with the couple it may feel like Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are isolated. But don’t worry. They have plenty of friends!
