Meghan Markle’s estranged sister is begging the former royal to stop “watching and doing nothing” as their father recovers from a possible stroke.
Samantha Markle went so far as to describe the Duchess of Sussex’s lack of involvement as “elder abuse,” as she seemingly hasn’t checked in on their unwell dad, Thomas Markle.
“He’s been through so much,” Samantha, 57, said of Thomas, 77, on “Dan Wootton Tonight.”
“Two heart attacks, a pandemic and now a stroke. None of us have heard from Meghan – that’s negligence.”
Samantha claimed their father “doesn’t have a lot of time,” so if Meghan, 40, doesn’t reach out now, she’d “have to live with that [decision] for the rest of her life.”
“If she can’t find it in her heart, or have the moral conscience to step forward, then shame on her,” Samantha added.
When Wootton asked Samantha if Meghan paying for medical costs would help, she responded, “‘She sees all of this. I’m getting the feeling that I would be spinning my wheels to try and appeal to her heart now.”
A rep for Meghan didn’t immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
Thomas was rushed from Tijuana, Mexico, Monday night to a hospital across the border in Chula Vista, Calif.
“It’s a travesty how much he’s been tortured and how much he’s had to go through thanks to my sister’s disregard the past few years,” Samantha said in a statement after the news of his health scare broke. “That is unforgivable.”
Thomas and Meghan’s estranged relationship has been the subject of many headlines over the years, including when a private letter she wrote to him got leaked.
“She’s like, ‘Dad, I’m so heartbroken. I love you. I have one father. Please stop victimizing me through the media so we can repair our relationship.’ Because every time her team has to come to her and fact-check something [he has said], it’s an arrow to the heart,” an insider explained.
Meghan ended up suing The Mail on Sunday over the leak and won, citing it as “unlawful.”
