Meghan Markle’s tacky half-siblings are so mad they didn’t get wedding invitations

I keep thinking about Meghan Markle’s half-siblings and how awful they are. I can’t get it out of my head. I’m an only child, so I don’t have any intimate knowledge of the passive-aggression and general assholery of siblings and half-siblings. But I’d still like to think that if I had a half-sibling who was about to marry into the royal family, I would know how to f–king behave. Sure, I might give one or two interviews. But I wouldn’t set out to paint an actual blood relative as some kind of monster just for my own personal profit and fame. This whole thing is so tacky, I don’t even have the words. Meghan Markle’s half-brother and half-sister are still talking, in case you were wondering. They weren’t invited to the wedding, because of course they weren’t. They’re trash and they don’t belong around people.

Meghan Markle’s brother has revealed that her royal wedding snub has ‘torn the family apart’. Thomas Jnr, 51, who is the American actress’ half-brother, claims the 36-year-old has forgotten her roots by refusing to invite close relatives as she prepare to tie the knot with Prince Harry. Mr Markle, from Oregon, accused his sibling of turning her back on the family and said she is ‘falsely’ trying to portray herself as the new Princess Diana.

He told the Daily Mirror: ‘She’s clearly forgotten her roots. It’s torn my entire family apart. Meg likes to portray herself as a humanitarian, a people’s person and a charitable person but she is none of those things to her family. She is giving the greatest ­performance of her life. She is acting phoney. I’ve read that Meg wants to be like Diana. Diana was worshipped by everyone in the world. She was loved for the right reasons. That’s what Meg wants, but I don’t think that’s going to happen. She’s not genuine like Diana.’

Mr Markle has not seen his sister since 2011 when the pair – and Meghan’s film producer ex Trevor Engleson, 41 – attended the Los Angeles funeral of their grandmother, Doris. But speaking exclusively to DailyMailTV last month, the 51-year-old said: ‘I haven’t got an invite yet but I do expect to get one. It would be really nice [to get an invitation] and it would mean a lot. I do expect one and I’m looking forward to going. I don’t see why not. It is what it is. I am family, estranged or not.’

Of the letter mailed to Kensington Palace, Markle Jr added: ‘I sent a letter. Just basically [saying] I’m really happy for you, congratulations, you’re amazing, you’re going to do well and congratulations.

Half-sister Samantha Grant, 53, is not thought to have received an invitation while Markle Jr’s ex-wife Tracey Dooley and son Tyler, 26, have already admitted to being left out. Yesterday Ms Grant questioned Harry’s humanitarian work and accused him of being a hypocrite by ‘allowing Meg to ignore the Markles’. She wrote: ‘It’s time to ‘man up’ @HRHHenryWindsor. ‘Shout outs’ about humanitarianism, don’t work when you are allowing Meg to ignore the Markles. It is s (sic) contradiction. Someone must point out that the “Emperor is not wearing any clothes”.’

However the account she was directing the message at is not actually the Prince, but a fan account pretending to be him.

Can you even believe the pettiness, the trashiness, the tackiness from these people? Meghan was right to cut them out of her life long ago, and they can’t stop showing their asses now. I would love to know how much the British tabloids are paying Meghan’s estranged relatives for these interviews too. And why did these f–king people expect wedding invitations when they’ve spent months trashing her?? I’m aghast. I don’t come from the most high-class or discreet family, but I’d really like to believe that both sides of my family would know how to behave if I was marrying a prince. (Then again, my cousin married a woman who cheated on him throughout the engagement and then left him right after the wedding and we still talk sh-t about it, so maybe my relatives would talk sh-t about me, idk.)

    I don’t have any contact with my father’s side of the family either, and I’m sad to say that if I ever was in Meghan’s situation, I can be 100% sure they would be as tacky as these people are. Some people think that just because you’re related it gives them automatic rights to your life. Which it doesn’t of course. But try telling them that.

    • Jennifer says:

      The amount of people who truly believe that they are allowed to behave like Total Raging Butt Walruses and get away with it because of blood relation is astonishing.

    • SNAP says:

      Exactly. They may share some DNA but if they didn’t care about Megan until her engagement to Harry, it shows they just want to be associated with her now that she has that level of fame. I bet they couldn’t care less about having a relationship with her until now. And even then, her wedding, her choice famous or not. I think her halfsies are showing exactly why they are being snubbed.

      • Mrs. WelenMelon says:

        IMO, they have potential contract$$$ with the British tabloids for behind-the-scenes accounts. They can only ca$$$h in if they get through the gates. The strategy is to make it so MM sends an invite to shut them up. Keep your friends close and your enemies closer and all that.

        MM is much too smart. She knows they will always have potential contract$$$ if only they can squeeze through the palace gate.

      • Millenial says:

        Yeah I think it’s super gross that one of morning shows has paid for these family members to be flown to England to be “commentators” or whatever for the wedding. If her family can’t be classy, I had hoped the morning shows wouldn’t stoop so low.

      • Mantha says:

        @Mrs. WelenMelon, i agree, not to mention Samantha’s book “Diary Of Princess Pushy’s sister”,now renamed “Tale of Two Sisters”, LOL she probably wanted new details to add in it and make it more salacious, the bullying didn’t work out lmao

      • Masamf says:

        @Melenmelon, I doubt any network is stupid enough to draw up any contacts for this bunch and here are my reasons why:
        Vonnie with her disability requires mega bucks in insurance to be able to travel. So to get a tourist visa at the airport, immigration officer will want to see proof of insurance should she need it when in the UK. That’s a huge responsibility for any news nework to take on.
        Thomas Jr. Isa felon, disqualified and inadmissible to the UK
        Step nephews and Thierry mother: Drug dealers, disqualified and inadmissible to the UK
        Those would the the only ones close enough to do any network reporting.

  2. Cee says:

    The Markles really makes you appreciate the Middletons.

    Maybe Meghan is used to her half-siblings only paying attention to her when they believe she can do something for them, but this must hurt. To have people who barely knows you talk so much trash about you in the press.

    • LAK says:

      The Markles really make you appreciate uncle Gary. Not for his messiness, but for the fact that any interviews he gave were snarky, but kind. Nothing to scare the horses – ok that story about William’s breast size preferences on women was off, but still……

    • Noddles says:

      I get the impression that the Middleton’s are just a less complicated family. I read everywhere on here that everyone is jumping to Meghan’s defence but we don’t really know what’s gone down and are only assuming.

      My impression of her siblings is that they sure don’t know when to stop talking but also that they’re hurt.

      My half brothers and I can go a year or more and not even talk or text but they’ve come through for me when I needed them most and I’d do the same for them. I’ve been to the wedding of the one brother that married and I would invite them if I ever married without question. We’ve had our differences but moved on.

      My point is that you’re family no matter what and it doesn’t take much to show a little kindness and bring people together. They’ll still be siblings even if this marriage doesn’t work out.

      • Maureen says:

        Well, you said Noddles, you can go without talking to your half brothers for a long time, but you will all be there for each other no matter what. That is your experience, and I’m happy for you. But not all families are like yours. I applaud anyone who removes toxic people from their lives, and keeps moving forward.

  3. Toot says:

    Meghan just shows how smart she really is because she cut ties with them long ago.

    Both siblings are much older than Meghan, damn near adults when she was born, so I see why there isn’t any bond with them.

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      I think maybe that is something that people don’t appreciate is the age difference. I am adopted and when I joined the family my oldest brother and sisters were married with kids my age, it had been difficult to have a sibling relationship with some of them over the years, there is just not much common ground with a large age gap and the relationships take work in a way that closer aged siblings may not.

      • ValiantlyVarnished says:

        Also keep in mind that Samantha Markle is a racist who used to refer to Meghan’s mother as “the maid”. That may have a lot to do with it too.

      • Zapp Brannigan says:

        Wow had not read that! Yeah that would do it, for sure.

      • Cate says:

        Yes, that is a big age difference. My husband has two ~10 years older older half-siblings and while they are definitely on friendly terms, they are just NOT as close as I am with my two siblings who are 1.5 and 3 years younger than me. They just don’t have the same number of shared memories and experiences and so on. Especially as although they spent some time in the same household, the half-siblings were often at their other parent’s house. My husband did go to their weddings but he didn’t play a big part in either of them. One of the half-siblings is also now just living a very different lifestyle than ours and it makes it even harder to really have a relationship b/c he and his wife are just into stuff that we don’t really relate to, and vice versa.

      • MelG. says:

        Let’s not forget good ole Samantha referred to Meghan’s mother as the N word also.

      • Carrie1 says:

        Omg I hadn’t heard that before! Gross.

        I sincerely hope to never hear from these people in press after the wedding. This is horrible thing to do to her.

      • Meggles says:

        Even better, the story about Samantha racially abusing Meghan’s mum comes from SAM’S OWN MOTHER. Like, I’m going to assume the break up was amicable, but damn. How bad do you have to be that your own mum supports her ex’s new wife over you.

    • Meeee says:

      I was a “surprise” baby and my siblings were between 15-21, when I was born. The only one I have a real sibling relationship with, is my adopted sister, who’s a year younger than me. The others feel more like aunts and uncles, as opposed to brothers and sister.

  4. SilverUnicorn says:

    The gall of them.
    Bunch of users/scroungers. I wouldn’t be surprised if they tried to crash the wedding at this point lol

    • Chaine says:

      Yup, probably standing in the crowds at the roadside with a big sign reading LET ME IN

    • Kelsey says:

      Don’t be surprised if one of the sleazier British tabloids flies them over so they can give “commentary” or just so they can be in the crowd. Correct me if I’m wrong but isn’t someone flying the Dooleys over for “expert commentary” or some other crap like that (even though they have barely seen Meghan in the past decade).

      • Cate says:

        Yes, I am 100% expecting that some of these relatives will be in the UK and as close to the wedding as they can possibly manage, courtesy of some tabloid or another. It would just be too much of an attention getter for either party to pass on.

      • PrincessK says:

        I am expecting that Samantha will land in either London or Windsor. But I doubt if the television station bringing her over will risk bringing her to Windsor as that station could find itself blacklisted on the day.

  5. minx says:

    Good, I was hoping MM wouldn’t relent and invite them.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      I’m of the mind that the couple also consulted TQ, and TQ agreed with Meghan.

  6. OriginalLala says:

    yikes. with family like that who needs enemies.

  7. Kitty says:

    Her siblings are the worst. The brother says estranged or not he should still be invited. What world do they live in? Meghan must be so embarrassed

    • SNAP says:

      Maybe she might feel some second hand embarrasment for them but really, she is smart about not even acknowledging them. To me it is crystal clear why she cut them off long ago. The halfsies’ behavior and comments are self explanatory enough.

    • minx says:

      I hope she’s not embarrassed. It seems everyone has some cringeworthy relatives.

      • Honey says:

        And you have to constantly remind yourself of that in order not to be embarrassed or ashamed.

    • Christin says:

      They think “family” automatically gives them privileges that actually need to be earned.

      Some people are only in it for themselves, and are not interested in respecting others and having a genuine two-way relationship. “Family” is not a pass that makes up for estrangement or bad behavior.

    • RedOnTheHead says:

      I’m embarrassed for her. Well, more uncomfortable really. I have to think that even if she doesn’t really care about the trashy McTrashers it has to sting a little to have so called family talking crap about you publicly as you prepare for your wedding. On the damn world stage no less. It’s all so cringey I can’t believe she’s completely unconcerned with it.

      This is why we can’t have nice things. We have a trashy president, trashy politicians, trashy reality “stars”, trashy instagram models, trashy celebrities, and now the trashy McTrashers. Did I miss anyone?

    • KBB says:

      There were rumored Nazi sympathizers in the royal family, weren’t there? Prince Philip had Nazi relatives too, I think. It could always be worse!

  8. KeWest says:

    Family isn’t about the blood you share but the bonds you create.

    Glad Meghan has nothing to do with those people.

  9. Chaine says:

    There were relatives I did not invite to my wedding because of prior issues. I only wanted people to be there that would help make it a happy day. Six months later one of the not-invited people sent what can only be described as a poison pen Christmas card skewering me for not inviting her. I felt that she had just confirmed all the reasons she was not on the guest list… to her MY wedding was all about HER and her need for some kind of validation. That is exactly how these Markle siblings seem. Their actions show why they are not invited. Plus you know if they were there, they’d be selling tacky stories and surreptitious photos to the tabloids lickety split.

    • Shotcaller says:

      This! My father and half-siblings were not invited. You could say that my half-siblings had done nothing wrong, technically, as my issues were with my father but my day was about positive energy and love. My family was struggling with our mother’s cancer diagnosis and nothing was going to ruin my wedding day for her. It remains one of my most flawless memories. No regrets. I still hear pointed complaints but could care less. Family is so much more than blood.

    • Yup, Me says:

      Exactly. But I would have had to send that Christmas card right back to that cousin with a note added that said “B*tch, THIS is why you weren’t invited.” and then I would have laughed and laughed every time I thought of it.

  10. Lulu says:

    Imagine feeling so entitled to a family members good fortune that you talk trash about them and drag their name through the mud only to act surprised later when they cut you off.

  11. Eliza says:

    You’d bring surprised how many people assume invites to a wedding. My in laws had no spine and anyone who asked where their invite was, instead of saying I’m sorry, they gave an invite. They asked for invites to send abroad as courtesy, but handed them out. I had 40+ unexpected rsvps from his side, he had a 101% acceptance rate. Lesson learned, never trust MIL.

    In Meghans case, never trust a half-sib. Believe people when they show you who they are. These siblings will sell any scrap of detail for a dime.

    • Kitty says:

      One of the reasons I haven’t married my partner after 13 years is because his mother would literally have to invite everyone she knows. I love my mother in law and we have a great relationship, but she’s a very social, outgoing person and I’m sort of the opposite and so is my partner. If we ever do get hitched we will be eloping for sure

      • Adele Dazeem says:

        Elope kitty do it! I did and it was great, I don’t regret a thing. No debt no drama no family just fun!

      • Cate says:

        I eloped for just this reason, except the problem parents were MINE, lol. I love them but I knew they were going to want to invite a bunch of their friends, which is fine up to a point but I really dislike some of their friends and I knew they would not respect that–if I put my foot down I would be hearing about it up until the minute I walked down the aisle, and probably after. And I also knew that while my parents would make a big fuss about helping to pay for a wedding, ultimately they would pressure me to do a bunch of stuff that I didn’t care about (like invite their friends) that would cost more $$$, so in the end their “help” wouldn’t really help at all. We briefly thought about having a “we got married!” party but shut it down as soon as my mom started making noises about helping to find a caterer and a venue and so on. My younger brother got married about 6 months after I eloped and I saw him have to deal with some of the stuff I had been dreading so I feel completely validated in my decision to elope!!

      • Eliza says:

        Kitty, elope. I loved my MIL but this definitely was the start of a recurring boundary problem in our relationship. Of course if you ask her there’s no problem.

  12. Magdalin says:

    Poor Meghan, they are the worst.

    Amazing Meghan, for standing her ground and focusing on the positive in her life.

    I admit I am afraid of Markle-based wedding day shenanigans.

    One of her nephews even said he’s going to try to crash.

    And (based upon rumors) whatever tv channel hires Samantha Markle to commentate on the wedding day, if they dare, I will NEVER watch that station again.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      And how are they going to afford the air fare and hotel expenses? Crashing a wedding in another country ain’t cheap.

      • Magdalin says:

        Probably courtesy of the Daily Mail, or one of the other yellows.
        Credit cards?
        All the Markle’s pooling their money for one person to crash represent?

        Let’s hope not on all fronts, but I just wouldn’t be surprised anymore.

      • KBB says:

        Some tabloids are supposedly flying them out just to make a scene

    • Green Girl says:

      I am curious as to what the sister will say if she’s commenting on the wedding! They haven’t spoken in YEARS so will it just be the sister saying “She’s so tacky and she didn’t invite me” the entire time?!?

      • KBB says:

        She’ll just pretend she knows Meghan well like she has been doing. “Meghan is fake and superficial, a social climber who throws out people she has no use for anymore.” That kind of stuff that she knows some people seem to love to hear about Meghan.

        Of course this woman is also estranged from her mother, brother, and her own daughter. I would hope she is at least asked why it is that she can’t get along with anyone in her family.

    • PrincessK says:

      If sad Sam comes over, which I believe she will, they had better keep her in London. The TV station bringing her over is a total disgrace.

  13. Snap Happy says:

    OMG. These people! Humanitarianism is about helping those less fortunate not inviting a$$holes to your wedding.

  14. HadleyB says:

    Is she inviting anyone though? I have heard some “gossip” the only person she is inviting is her mother and I find that ..odd.

    Out of all her family and friends only one person from your past is invited?

    Any word on that ?

    • Merritt says:

      We won’t know until the day because the relatives invited won’t talk. Her mom will be there. People think her maternal uncle and his family will be there. And her father is likely going to be there.

    • ValiantlyVarnished says:

      Meghan actually does have friends and she has her mother’s side of the family. I highly doubt her mother would be the only person she has invited.

    • Menlisa says:

      I think the people from her past who are invited are discreet.
      My guess is we won’t know until the day.
      But that’s just me guessing.

    • AV says:

      I think I read that she is inviting her niece. She seems to have some fam who aren’t total jerks at least.I sympathize with MM so much over this situation. My family situation is better than it used to be, but I’m still planning to elope because I don’t want them there and don’t feel like dealing with their bs for the rest of my life if I only invited the peeps I want. My friends and fam who *actually* know me are totally supportive of that decision and of my reasons behind it, end of. “The blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb.”

    • Masamf says:

      IMO it doesn’t matter if she isn’t inviting anyone but her mother and her dog. It’s her wedding, shegets to do what makes her happy. Why invite abunchy of deplorable a just to satisfy other deplorables? If she wants nobody at her wedding, oh well it’s her wedding, period.

      • Veronica T says:

        Is her dog alive?? There has been no word on his fate after he went to the vet for two broken legs. I have read over and over the opinion that he was euthanized.

      • CairinaCat says:

        There goes Veronica again.
        Your utter hatred of someone you don’t know and never will know is really insane.
        Seriously, get some help.

    • Meggles says:

      Realistically we know zero about who is and is not invited, since no guest list has been released.

      It’s highly unlikely that her mother is the only one invited, as she has an uncle and a niece she is very close to, and by all accounts has a close relationship with her father too. We have no idea what other relatives she has whose existence is not public knowledge because they have stayed private and not run to the tabloids. The “rumours” that she’s only inviting her mum or that she’s estranged from her entire family are probably lies from either the tabloids or the Tumblr stans.

  15. Honey says:

    How in the h*ll do you tear a family apart that’s not together anyway or divide a family when it’s already fractured into tiny pieces?

    If Meghan were a janitor working for an anonymous school system and marrying a man who worked 3rd shift at a 24-hour McDonalds, would the half-sibs be this upset if they weren’t invited to the wedding? Particularly, a person that they even admit they haven’t seen or spoken to in years. Would the half-siblings truly give a damn about an invitation? If MH were regular people, meaning without acess to fame or fortune, would the half-siblings be writing tell-all books and up in arms over missing a free meal, a so-so DJ, and a cash bar? Before taking another check from the Daily Mail, et al., this is what the half-siblings should be asking themselves. Period.

    • Christin says:

      In the scenario you mention, the half-sibs would likely be whining about having to buy a present for someone they had not seen in years.

    • KBB says:

      MTE. The sister doesn’t speak to anyone in the family, right? She is at least estranged from her mother, daughter, and brother. And the brother’s arrest record and abuse of his partner seem a bit more detrimental to the health of the family structure than not being invited to a wedding.

      • Masamf says:

        Brother also has a history of alchohol and drug abuse. That’s enough to year the family apart without Meghan lifting a pinkie.

    • Notsoanonymous says:

      I’ve wondered this same thing the entire time – and were they at her first wedding, or invited?

    • Meggles says:

      Exactly. The half-siblings didn’t care that they were not invited to her first wedding, and didn’t lift a finger to try to make contact with her when she was a relatively anonymous actress living in Canada married to a regular person.

  16. Merritt says:

    They knew they wouldn’t be invited. They have been estranged for years.

    • ValiantlyVarnished says:

      Exactly. They knew they weren’t getting an invite. They are simply using this to play the victim and aell more interviews that attempt to paint Meghan as the bad guy. But the more they talk the more they show exactly why she wants nothing to do with them.

    • KNy says:

      Don’t underestimate a sense of entitlement.

      • DP says:

        This. Exactly this.
        My sister throws fits over ridiculous stuff, attacks me viciously and then stops talking to me for months, even years. Eventually she always comes back like nothing has happened (whenever she wants something). After one of her recent fits and during one these “breaks” where she wasn’t returning phone calls, etc… my husband had a surprise party for me and decided not to invite her. She got furious that she was “left out” and played the victim to anyone who would listen.
        I feel for Megan Markle!

      • Carisel says:

        @ do, I feel your pain.
        My brother and sister don’t get my bi polar disorder, and actually think I’m just lazy because work can be very difficult for me at times, (I have major episodes that can be seriously debilitating).
        I’ve stopped talking to them with the approval of my therapist. All they do is make me feel worse about myself, and anyone with a mental disorder can tell you, that’s the last thing we need.
        I will not have them at my wedding.

  17. Nicole says:

    They seriously cannot think they are invited right?! After all the press they courted to sling mud and they thought they still deserved to go?!? We really need to let go of this notion that we should hold onto toxic family members. Its so damaging.

  18. Menlisa says:

    Were they this upset when they didn’t get invited to her first wedding?
    I think not.
    She is better off without them.

  19. ValiantlyVarnished says:

    Ive been estranged from my father since I was 18. I’m 37 now. And it was the best decision I ever made. Blood relative or not some people are simply too toxic and dysfunctional to have in your life.

    • Christin says:

      It’s hard to distance / cut people out of our lives, but it is sometimes the only way to cope.

      When people show who they are, it’s not going to change. I kept thinking relatives would mellow and change with age, and it does not happen. In fact, age often magnifies the negative behavior.

    • DP says:

      I struggle with this in my own family. Estrangement is so painful, but sometimes it is the healthier option.

  20. Other Renee says:

    Surely she must have a plan in place to keep these losers out If they do try to crash the wedding. And I honestly believe they will try.

    • Montréalaise says:

      I’m sure there will be lots and lots of security – nobody who isn’t an invited guest will be allowed past a certain point.

    • Masamf says:

      Meghan need’nt worry. Her brother’s criminal record disqualifies him from being admissible to the UK. Vonnie disability requires mega insurance and I doubt what she has now will cover travel and medical in the UK.
      The half nephews are on record with their cannabis farm which is illegal in the UK, they too are inadmissible. There’ll be no wedding crashing by Meghan deplorable estranged family members.

  21. DenG says:

    I looked up the cliche “blood is thicker than water” and was enlightened. The water of the womb is not necessarily stronger than the bonds among those who are not “related”. Sounds like a bunch of hangers-on, mooches or leeches in that Family.

    • Meggles says:

      Exactly. The phrase “blood is thicker than water” literally means that ties that develop between people who aren’t related (ie from blood covenants and blood shed on the battlefield) are stronger than biological ties.

  22. Honey says:

    I like that dress a little better but still think it was to “summery-informal” to wear to that event, given her status.

  23. Amelie says:

    They really are exhausting. I do find it a bit odd after years of no communication they thought they would be getting invited. Meghan probably made nice for a long time and once she no longer had to deal with them on a regular basis decided to cut off contact. I can’t blame her considering how fame hungry her sister is.

    The only family member I have that I guess is problematic is this uncle who I think is getting a bit senile and a hardcore Republican who lives in SC who would post obscene stuff on his Facebook account back when Obama was still president. He has luckily deleted that account but unfortunately it gave me a lot of insight into his hateful views. Luckily I don’t have to see him much.

  24. lucy2 says:

    Wow, they are the worst. They have no relationship with her, admit they are estranged, and demand an invitation???

  25. Lainey says:

    If I were ever in a position like Meghan is, I can tell you right here and now which family members would speak to the press. And I’m not close to any of them, haven’t even seen them in years. Sadly all of this lot are going to be in England with some of the shows covering the wedding. They only care about the money.

    • KBB says:

      There is almost no way these people clean up well, so they’ll just make themselves look worse in the end.

    • Masamf says:

      Lainey I still maintain that said family members will not be admitted to UK. I guess we’ll just wait and see what happens.

      • PrincessK says:

        If they are not allowed in to the UK Meghan and the Palace will get the blame. Also apart from the criminals amongst them there are no reasons to bar them from entry.

  26. Wowsers says:

    He still thinks he’s getting an invitation, what is this guy smoking??
    There’s one in every family, poor Meghan certainly got her more than fair share.

  27. Tania says:

    While everyone was happy for me when I finally got married, when my sister got wind of it she posted, “I guess she finally got over me sleeping with her boyfriend and ruining her life” message. She’s a total class act.

    • DP says:

      I’ve got to know… did you marry the boyfriend she slept with?

    • Christin says:

      Weddings and funerals tend to bring out the “real” side of people. Really classy move on your sister’s part. All about her…

  28. Taxi says:

    The nasty half-sister was shading Meghan many months ago for not giving her money. I imagine when Meghan got “Suits,” that the old sis asked for a handout & didn’t get it.

  29. cora says:

    Everyetime this awful people talk, I like Meghan more and more. She hasn’t said a word but I bet she is crying from sheer embarrasment. I know I would.
    Meghan’s niece has said that they were racist towards her and her mum, I think that is why she stopped talking to them years ago….and now with her (2nd wedding, they were not invited either to the first one I think) wedding, they have spent months insulting her in public…..I am so happy for her, now they will never have access to her again.

  30. Mantha says:

    The brother sounds so bitter,it’s pitiful. The half-sister has always been jealous and envious of Meghan and did everything she could to sabotage her relationship with Harry from the moment she heard about it and she has the audacity to talk about humanitarianism when has has no qualms selling her half sister to the tabloids lol Where the humanitarianism when she used to call Doria “the maid” or the “n” word ? I’m glad Meghan is keeping quiet,no need to give validation to 2 stray cats that don’t deserve one…

  31. Lila says:

    Her Sister has been horrid about her to The Media since the Engagement. She has said some dreadful things about her. Why on Earth would she invite her to her Wedding? Why does the sister want to come? If they came I wouldn’t trust them. They probably sell their photos and story of the wedding to the highest bidder.

    • LAK says:

      Her sister was horrible BEFORE the engagement.

      As soon as the romance as outed, up popped Samantha to try to derail it. On and on she went. The brother was much more positive about the romance and didn’t start bad-mouthing MM until after it became clear that he was not going to be invited and she wasn’t going to acknowledge him….’i don’t know these people’ her lawyers claim was her response to a letter he sent her after the engagement.

      • bluhare says:

        She’s also shilling for her nephew’s weed farm, some makeup artist and a line of vegan bags on Twitter. She’s milking her 15 minute like it’s the last cow in the herd.

        I think it was Andrew Morton who said he didn’t interview her because she wanted too much money for it?

      • PrincessK says:

        Sad Sam also changed her name back to Markle as soon as Meghan’s relationship with Harry became public, she clearly is a very calculated and cunning person.

  32. KNy says:

    Her brother sounds like one of those “nice guys” who asks to take you out for drinks and when you politely say no, he calls you a f-in’ b-tch. He literally admitted to sending a letter to her when news broke about the engagement telling her she’s amazing. And now she’s an awful person because she doesn’t want to (most likely) foot the bill for him and his family to come see her get married after not seeing her for 7 years? Not even a brother who is making money selling stories about her to tabloids?

    I bet she’s going to invite her father – because he hasn’t said a word. Anyone who truly cares about her knows to keep their mouth shut.

  33. harla says:

    I completely agree with Meghan not inviting her relations but it might be safer to have them inside Windsor Castle then outside selling their tales to the local tv stations during the wedding. Keep your friends close, keep your enemies closer.

    • DP says:

      I think it’s better to keep toxic people out of your life.
      Some people say, Family is family, but if family tears you down and trashes you, I say move on.

    • KBB says:

      They’d be stealing silverware so they could hawk it later. They’d be trying to get book deals so they could write tell-alls about the wedding and the reception. The brother has a criminal background and a drinking problem, that’s not someone you’d want anywhere near the Queen. They’d be much more of a potential embarrassment if they were invited.

  34. DP says:

    The more her rogue relatives smear her, the worse and less credible THEY seem.
    So in a strange way, all these insults are making Megan look better. I know that sounds backwards, but most people reading these quotes are probably thinking… “Of course she is not going to invite these crazy people! Poor Megan!”

    • harla says:

      I’ve read several comments elsewhere along this same line. The more they bash and cry, the more some folks like Meghan.

  35. Lady D says:

    “it’s time to man up” In other words, act like a man and get your gd woman in line? Is she for real? Dragging Meghan isn’t enough for her anymore, she has to insult his manhood too. She still expects an invite?

  36. Anastasia says:

    All these ratchety people want is $$$$$$!

    I have two half-siblings who are MUCH younger than me. I was grown, married, and about to start my own family when they were little. We didn’t ever live in the same household and don’t have much of a relationship (never did), so I feel for MM here. If I were to suddenly come into a lot of money or getting connected to people with a lot of money, I can see both of them suddenly being VERY interested in me and my life. And suddenly having a lot to say.

    So shady.

  37. Rianic says:

    Do they think they can embarrass the royal family into getting an invitation? That The Queen or someone will make her invite them to shit them up? If so, they obviously don’t remember Charles wanting to be Camilla’s tampon.

  38. Jayna says:

    I try not to pay attention to them, actually. I never click on their articles on Daily Mail anymore because it’s perpetuating the cycle of articles coming through on DM. I don’t want to be part of why they get more and more space on DM, etc.

    Her half-siblings’ own mother is estranged from them. The half-sister’s daughter is estranged from her. The family is torn apart because of their own issues, not anything to do with Meghan. The dad I doubt says a word to them about anything they could sell, and that irks them.

  39. Montréalaise says:

    They really are horrible people. They`re not only estranged from Meghan, but from other family members as well – the half-sister is not on speaking terms with either her mother or her own children (one of her daughters gave an interview a few days ago where she said she is so embarrassed to see her mother bashing Meghan and wishes she would STFU) and the half-brother isn’t on speaking terms with his family either.

    • CairinaCat says:

      Seems like Meghan is from a broken family and none of the parents do anything about it. Well, she will fit in with the RF quite will.

  40. aquarius64 says:

    These losers are so awful Meghan’s critics on the Fail’s comment section sided with Meghan. Tom’s sons and ex-wife went to the Fail to interview about their Oregon pot farm and they plan to make a blend called Markle’s Sparkle. But I think Markles are on MI5’s radar and been assessed as security threats. I think their tabloid hosts know most people despise them and they are setting them up for public humiliation, captured on cameras

  41. What's Inside says:

    These people are the past and have nothing positive of value to contribute to the future. They are simply showing their true colors. I do not blame Meghan one bit.

  42. CK3 says:

    They’re the relatives that suddenly show up when you hit the lottery, but aren’t there at any other time.

    They feel that relation entitles them to something and it doesn’t.

    • Montréalaise says:

      Exactly. Every big lottery winner has said that as soon as their win became public, they heard from relatives they hadn’t seen or spoken to in years, sometimes decades, suddenly wanting to be ”family”.

  43. ocjulia says:

    I hope Meghan has a lovely, drama-free wedding. Of course I wish that for every bride, but not every bride has family being paid to talk crap about them.

  44. M.A.F. says:

    “I am family, estranged or not.’” Kind of tells me everything I need to know. Just because you are blood doesn’t mean you are a family and it doesn’t mean you get invited to family events. Estranged or not.

  45. Claire says:

    Her family is such an embarrassment for her. She must be mortified! But I do wonder why there are others who have come forward and said if she has no use for them anymore they are basically toast. It seems to be a common thread. Is there truth to that?

    • Tonya says:

      Claire, some have said that (ex- friend mainly). While others (like Cory, his mom, her maternal uncle & maternal nephew, paternal niece & nephews, ex-‘step mom’, etc.) have only said ‘good things’. Most of her inner circle don’t talk. Unless you know her personally, we don’t know for certain anything about Meghan except her name, age, gender, former occupation, etc. – the same stuff we only know about Harry…

      Do we really know the ‘truth’ when we are only privy to hearsay & innuendos???? From the half siblings (& much of the Paternal family side) their issue is that because they are relatives, they SHOULD be invited. That sounds more like them USING Meghan…

    • Meggles says:

      It’s literally three people who have said that, and two of them are grifters who have not even spoken to her since she was a small child (and the other appears to have some weird issues where she was over-invested in Meghan’s marriage and angry that Meghan got divorced).

      So basically she’s had one longterm friendship go south. Which is sad, but it happens, and none of us know the history.

      It’s scary that one person with an axe to grind can destroy your reputation, even if a million people say it’s not true. There are dozens of people who have only got praise and support for her (even her ex-partner, ex-partner’s mother, half-sister’s mother). But this gets little attention, because positivity doesn’t sell newspapers.

    • PrincessK says:

      You must realise that some people will do anything for money.

  46. Mj says:

    Why in the world would she ever invite these people to her wedding? I wouldn’t. Every time I read a story about them I think, thank god she is distancing herself from them.

  47. lobbit says:

    Meghan’s sister offends me on like a spiritual level lol. Back when the news came out about Meghan and Harry dating, SHE came out right after and did her level best to sabotage the relationship. And now she has the gall to demand an invitation to the wedding? Seriously? Unreal.

  48. ChillyWilly says:

    Wow. The phrase “jealous haters” was invented for these people. I wouldn’t invite them either after their awful behavior.

  49. Masamf says:

    I have a question for Brits on here. Should any network even entertain the idea of any of these people being commentators, wouldn’t that be considered work or employment? Would Americans work in the UK without a work permit?

  50. Fellow queer lady says:

    I’m disappointed. I wanted to see pictures of them at the wedding looking sour.

  51. Jayna says:

    These people don’t think they are getting an invitation. They get that the bridges are way past burned now. They just keep fanning the flames so they can sell their stories to the Daily Fail. It’s nothing more than another cash grab and trying to keep up the interest in themselves to make more money off of this.

  52. Nomnom says:

    Were they invited to her first wedding? I’m guessing not. Why would they be now?

  53. Izzy says:

    “Torn the family apart” LMAO no dude, you did that. Long before this.

    • CairinaCat says:

      Markle’s father did that when he decided to leave two of his children to spend his time exclusively with his 3rd child. When children dislike each other that much then do blame the parents at least partly. Because it is the parents responsibility to form a family and to solve conflicts.

      Ironically Markle is the one most likely to get an invite.

      • Peg says:

        Thomas divorced his first wife years before he met Doria. The children were 14 and 16 when Meghan was born.
        Doria left the marital home when Meghan was two and they were divorced when Meghan was six.
        So forget all the nonsense that Meghan grew up with her older siblings, they met at family celebrations, when her dad took her, notice not one of picture they’re hawing have Doria in it, so much for happy families.

      • PrincessK says:

        Carinacat…..that sounds like an exaggeration.

      • Masamf says:

        Cairinacat, it seems you haven’t been paying attention to any of the stories being put out there by the Markle siblings. According to Vonnie, Meghan’s is not the from rags to riches story the tabloids attempt to sell. Meghan did not grow up poor. Vonnie said “We were raised in a very beautiful upper middle-class home in the San Fernando Valley of southern California – nowhere near ‘gangland’. that is not a picture of a father that abandoned the older kids. Vonnie also stated that their father raised ALL of them and Meghan has said on numerous occasions that she grew up between both her parents, not with her father. Both parents raised her, so there’s not “Mr. Markle left his first older kids and spent all his time exclusively with his 3rd child” etc. The older siblings were raised by their father but they did not grow up with Meghan, they were too old for “were raised together with Meghan” when she was born. One is 16 years older while the other is 15 years older. You don’t grow up with people 15 years older than you. They were raised by the same father but at different times in their lives.

  54. Shannon says:

    I absolutely believe it. I have a half-sister who acts exactly the same way, and if I were marrying a prince I’d absolutely expect this from her. She’s trashy, petty, vile and basically nobody in the family talks to her anymore. I feel for Meghan; it’s like having this constant ‘mean girl’ in your life you can’t really get rid of. It’s not fun. I’m glad she left them off the list.

  55. Oliviajoy1995 says:

    Pretty sure her brother just proved exactly why he wasn’t invited.

  56. CairinaCat says:

    Basically I agree with the siblings. An invite would be an opportunity to mend their relationship.
    There are pics of them and Meghan and her half-sister grew up together. They did. And if Meghan invites THEIR dad but not her dad’s other children then that won’t improve the family relations either.
    Diana didn’t have much family outside the royal family either and that didn’t work out too well for her.

    It shouldn’t be that easy to discard family even if they are outspoken and petty. Sorry but that criteria would allow most people to discard most of their family.

    • Peg says:

      Stop rewriting history, Stated earlier, Doria left with the marriage when Meghan was two yrs old so how the heck did she grow up with them. Pictures at celebrations proves it, 👸🏽.
      Some things can’t be fixed and this family may be one of those things.
      Why not have a wedding and invite them, so they are not discarded.

    • PrincessK says:

      Meghan did not spend a lot of time with her half siblings, if she did they would have a lot more photos to sell instead of the some few they keep recycling of when Meghan paid visits.

      • Tonya says:

        I have half siblings on my paternal side. They know me & I know them. We are not close because we didn’t grow up together. Any time my father’s family had a gathering, we took pictures- that’s common.

        Was I offended when my half sister didn’t invite me to her high society wedding? No because we are not close…I congratulated her & kept it moving.

        Meghan’s half siblings see an opportunity to make money & embarrass her…Meghan should keep ignoring them…eventually the yellow journalism will move on to another…
