EXCLUSIVE: Meghan Markle shows she 'hates the idea that her family is dysfunctional' with clear move

The Duchess of Sussex has been estranged from her father Thomas Markle for years. Now her half-sister Samantha is trying to drag her to court with a new appeal. The former Suits actress has made no secret of her closeness to her mother Doria Ragland, who has been her rock throughout her life and is often seen accompanying her to events.




Royal expert and author Tom Quinn spoke exclusively to The Mirror about Meghan’s family life. He said: “‌Megan hates the idea that her family is dysfunctional and that Harry is the only family she’s got – being seen with her mother at glamorous events is definitely an attempt to knock that idea on the head.”

It comes as Meghan Markle’s half-sister Samantha is launching an appeal against a judge’s decision to throw out a defamation case against Meghan’s half-sibling lost a battle against the former working royal after comments made during the couple’s explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey and their bombshell series on Netflix. A case was dismissed in March by a judge in Florida.

Samantha Markle wasn’t happy with comments made by Meghan during her sit-down with Oprah or in her TV doc debut with her husband Prince Harry. But the case was ultimately thrown out and dismissed by Judge Charlene Edwards Honeywell.

Now Samantha’s team has reportedly filed an appeal, which could overturn Honeywell’s decision. A court filing obtained by Newsweek states: “Notice is hereby given that the Plaintiff, Samantha M. Markle, by and through her undersigned counsel, appeals to the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit from the Order Granting Defendants, Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, Motion to Dismiss entered by the Honorable Charlene Edwards Honeywell on March 12, 2024.”

The Mirror has approached representatives for both Meghan and Samantha for comment.

Speaking of Samantha in her 2021 interview with Oprah, Meghan said: “I think it’d be very hard to tell all when you don’t know me. And I mean, this is a very different situation than my dad, right? When you talk about betrayal, betrayal comes from someone that you have a relationship with. Right? I don’t feel comfortable talking about people that I really don’t know.”
