Samantha Markle rejected claims that her half-sister Meghan was subjected to racist media coverage, adding that the suggestions are a “trait”.
In a wide-ranging interview on ITV, this Friday morning, Markle said that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have “a lot of excuses to make” for their father’s “incredibly wrong and shocking” treatment, Thomas.
Prince Harry and Meghan made the bomb announcement last week that they would step back as senior members of the royal family and split between the UK and Canada.
Asked why he thinks Meghan didn’t like real life, Markle, speaking from Florida, said: “It seemed externally, that she liked it when she mentioned, there were the fabulous four … It was all apparently fantastic and wonderful then. “
He added that after the Duchess began to be criticized for “expenses and protocols that had been broken”, Meghan “reversed the script”.
“Rather shocking and painful that the issue of racism would never come up because I have never seen anything of a racist nature and therefore it seemed like a mistake of responsibility to avoid responsibility for many things,” he said.
“And I just thought it had been a serious violation of the duty, responsibility, honor and trust that had been entrusted to her. I thought it was an incredible trait. “
Ms. Markle also faced Meghan’s lawsuit against the Mail on Sunday, who are accused of illegally publishing a letter she wrote to her father.
It has since emerged that Markle is willing to testify against her daughter in court.
On why his father feels so strongly in this case, Markle said: “In view of the fact that that letter was apparently written for the purpose of being seen, it would appear to be part of a defamatory campaign.”
Asked if his father is still eager to meet Prince Harry, he said, “I can’t say soon. If he does, I really feel that Prince Harry and Megan have a lot of excuses to make. We’re not talking about teenagers. , we are talking about who I think knew exactly what they were doing and as far as my father was concerned it was incredibly wrong, unfair and shocking. “
Markle said he believed it was likely that Meghan had decided to step back as senior members of the royal family, saying that her sister was not happy with the criticisms that were taking place publicly.
At the end of the interview, he had a message for Meghan, saying: “I would say that life is very short and in the general view money and fame don’t really count.
“What really matters is personal integrity, honesty, family and so I hope it can come to terms with that, apologize and certainly for the benefit of Archie and the British royal family, go on with honesty and take care of the best interests of others. It’s so important and that’s all I can say. “
Her comments come after Meghan was photographed for charity by two women in Vancouver this week, days after the Queen sanctioned a “transition period” in which the couple split their time between the UK and Canada.
