Samantha Markle, who has often voiced her resentment towards the Royal Family, wants to make amends now that Meghan Markle has announced her first pregnancy.
Samantha told The Sun, “It just makes everything that happened over the last year disappear. I want Meghan to be happy and calm and have peace. Everybody needs to be positive.” She added, “A baby changes everything and softens everyone. I would only hope that there would be some adjustment or some way of including him.”
The Duchess’ sister also addressed that fact that Markle’s father is not mentioned in the pregnancy announcement, saying she hoped it was “not intentional” and that he is “included and at a proper time.” A source told the publication that Thomas Markle is “absolutely delighted” and “overjoyed”.
Samantha traveled to London recently to meet her sister and smooth over some of the tensions that exist between Meghan and her father since the Royal Wedding in May. Samantha was not able to meet her sister however, and is now vacationing in Ireland since being shunned.
Kensington Palace announced the news on social media, writing, “Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announced that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019. Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share the news with the public.”
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are currently on a tour of Australia.
