A family source said that Meghan Markle became physically closer to her family members when she and Prince Harry moved to California last year, but that doesn’t mean they can reconcile – as the source pointed out.
As a result of their decision to move to North America to pursue independent work, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex stunned fans with their decision to step down as senior royal members. Since the couple settled in Montecito, Calif., located in Santa Barbara County, it’s been almost a year since they purchased their first property together.
Despite Markle’s return to her native coast, a close relative of the actress who wishes to remain anonymous declined to consider a potential play date between her kids and those of her extended family following the birth of Lilibet Diana, the Sussexes’ second child. “Yep, after I set up a play date with the Winfrey family, too?” the family source jokingly stated.
Markle has long avoided in the media her relation to her father, Thomas Markle, because of their strained relationship. The family source added that the family division has crept up between Markle and her extended family. As the source reported, the new mother of two has made it clear she now believes she’s above her family and where she came from.
I value a real family, making a meaningful contribution to my life, continued the relative. But, an insider added, “You shouldn’t have to be someone you’re not to be accepted and loved.” Markle’s estrangement from her family is “her choice,” the insider said, adding they would not be reaching out to her because a reunion was unlikely. The person who doesn’t want to talk to me is not who I’m chasing after. A family source said, “I have a family, and we couldn’t be happier expressing the love that we have. So in short, I couldn’t give a damn about anything.”.
There may be some tension in Markle’s family, but it doesn’t mean her distant relatives do not wish her well. Markle and Harry’s second child, Lilibet Diana, was born on Friday, June 4. “I’m happy for them,” the relative said about Markle and Harry. I wish them success as they embark on their journey of raising a family.
Despite her paternal family’s best efforts, Markle has had a rocky relationship with them from the beginning of their relationship. Her outspoken half-sister Samantha Markle has made various claims about how the duchess spewed “lies” in interviews, to which the duchess has never responded.
It was revealed that her father would not attend the televised ceremony, causing Harry’s father, Prince Charles, to walk Meghan down the aisle, intensifying the drama during the week of her wedding. Over the past few months, Harry has revealed more details about how his relationship with the British royals, including his father and brother, Prince William, had broken down.
