Samantha Markle Sends Meghan A Christmas Card Begging She 'End The Rift' With Her Father
Samantha Markle has sent her sister the Duchess of Sussex a Christmas card begging her to 'end the rift' with her estranged father Thomas 'in his final years'.
Samantha, 53, a paternal half-sister of Meghan, wrote to the royal saying it was 'time' she reunited with father Thomas, the Sunday Mirror reported.
According to Mr Markle, the relationship reportedly broke down and the father and daughter have not spoken for more than six months.
In a picture of the card published by the Sunday Mirror, Samantha Markle wrote: 'Holidays are a time for family and are sentimental.
'Dad has been trying to contact you and is very hurt because you are avoiding him.
'Life is short and you know Dad is wonderful. Please give him joy in his last years by showing you love him. The time is now.'
The 74-year-old was caught up in controversy days before the wedding of Harry and Meghan after he allegedly staged paparazzi photographs of himself.
