Meghan Markle rips into half-sister, Samantha, who she 'barely knows'

Meghan Markle and Thomas Markle

Over the past couple of months, Meghan Markle's father Thomas Markle has been in the news with several claims that he was not invited to the royal wedding between his daughter and Prince Harry.

Palace aides are understood to be considering whether to take a stand over the very public family disclosures, taking legal advice before the Duchess decides whether she wishes to take formal action.

The 33-year-old was responding to an article in Royal Central that criticised Meghan's estranged father, Thomas Markle Sr. and sister, Samantha Markle, for repeatedly selling stories and giving negative interviews about the royal.

She's been plagued by bad comments from members of the controversial Markle family since she started dating Prince Harry.

The letter shows how Meghan, 37, begged him to stop his "painful" attacks on her "kind and patient" husband.

Meghan also accuses her father of snubbing her and Prince Harry's offers to help when he pulled out of attending their wedding following two heart attacks and accuses him of being ungrateful for money she has given him.

In the interviews, they said Meghan had been so upset by her father's public attacks on her and Harry that she penned the letter begging him to patch up their differences privately. Your actions have broken my heart into a million pieces - not simply because you have manufactured such unnecessary and unwarranted pain, but by making the choice to not tell the truth as you are puppeteered in this.

Russian archipelago declares emergency after mass ‘invasion’ of polar bears
The move came after officials in the Novaya Zemlya archipelago, with a population of about 3,000 people, appealed for help. Novaya Zemlya, located off Russia's northeastern arctic coast, has been swarmed by dozens of polar bears since December.

The duchess also criticized her father for the lies of his "other daughter" ― Samantha Grant, who is the duchesses' half-sister.

News of the duchess's reported letter was brought to light last week when five of her close friends revealed its existence to People. "I came by there one day, and she had ordered an incredible ice-cream and sorbet stand for the office", the insider revealed. Please allow us to live our lives in peace.

Mr Markle was countering media reports that he has not reached out to her after an unnamed friend of the duchess told United States magazine People: 'He's never called; he's never texted.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Mr Markle said that the letter wasn't the "olive branch" that he had hoped for.

Another friend said that when she visited the Duchess' Nottingham Cottage she noticed some boxes in her house and when she asked Meghan what was in them, the former actress replied: "They're hand warmers".
