Outspoken Samantha, 53, and father Thomas Markle, 74, have taken it in turns to make public digs at Meghan, Prince Harry and the Royal Family.Meghan, however, has kept a dignified silence – and reportedly not spoken to her father since her wedding four months ago.
Her silence has clearly irritated Samantha, who has tried to arrange a one-on-one meeting with her half-sister, according to her publicist Rob Cooper.
Rob tweeted on Monday: “Samantha Markle is coming to the UK. After making numerous attempts in private to arrange a one on one meeting with The Duchess of Sussex to discuss their 74 year old father’s health, Kensington Palace have refused to respond.
“I fear Meghan may not be made aware of these discreet attempts and therefore making this public is the only option we have left.
“I currently have Samantha in Europe with just one short flight away. This DOESN’T need to be public, we would prefer to keep this private. Samantha is coming to the UK this week, like it or not.”
