Even though Meghan Markle and her father, Thomas Markle, aren’t on the best of terms these days, it seems like their relationship was much different when the Suits alum, 39, was growing up.
“It seemed like Meg’s world was very abundant in whatever she wanted and needed, and full of so much activity, that it was a wonder she could handle it all in the course of the day. Dad was very easy-going for the most part, and let her decide what she wanted, and how she wanted things to go … I don’t recall ever hearing Dad say ‘no’ to Meg, about anything,” Meghan’s estranged sister, Samantha Markle, wrote in her new tell-all, The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister Part 1.
Samantha, 56, even recalled a moment when Meghan acted entitled.
“I pointed out a ring that was about three hundred dollars. I thought it was reasonable. ‘This looks nice, it’s Tanzanite and 14 karat gold,’ I said… [Meg] turned pale, and I could see her forehead bead with perspiration, as she said in the tone of voice that could have burned a hole in the wall and without ever even bringing her lips together, ‘You’re not getting that ring, Babe!'” Samantha — who Meghan called “Babe” — claimed.
“Her response made it clear that she was feeling jealous by me picking out something slightly above what is considered moderately priced … It wasn’t just that she didn’t want me to have a nice ring, it seemed that she didn’t want Dad to get me a nice ring,” Samantha alleged. “I didn’t know what was going on, but I never saw Doria at Dad’s house. I tried not to talk about divorce-related issues in front of Meg.”
Ultimately, Samantha “couldn’t believe” Meghan “was so demanding of our father” — especially since he paid for her to attend Northwestern University.
“Instead of showing gratitude, she was being belittling and controlling,” Samantha claimed.
Samantha noted that Meghan allegedly made a video with her friends where she said she was “not getting along” with her father.
“To insult him in a video was horrific,” Samantha continued. “Dad had no idea that the whole thing was a snapshot of the future.”
The Royal Observer previously reported on Samantha's memoir, which also includes how Meghan allegedly told her father that Samantha and Thomas Markle Jr. didn't fit into his life.
"With a cold yet sorrowful pause, he continued reluctantly, 'She said, 'Dad, you don’t need [Samantha] and Tom. You don’t need them!'" Samantha claimed. "To which he replied, 'You’re asking me to disown my kids? I can’t do that! I love you all equally. I’m not disowning my kids. That’s crazy. I am not gonna do that. You can't ask me to do that!'"
"I have nothing more to say, we have nothing more to talk about," Meghan allegedly concluded while speaking with Thomas.
