Thomas Markle Claims He Plans to Petition Court to See Archie and Lili

Meghan acknowledged the tenacity of the tabloid media, while also accepting that her father had the chance to turn down staged photo opps and interviews, just as her mother Doria Ragland has. She stated, “Everyone has accountability. Look, they’ve hunted my mom down and you’ve never heard her say a word. She’s remained in silent dignity for four years watching me go through this.”

The Duchess went on to note that she hasn’t seen estranged sister Samantha Markle, who wrote a “tell-all” book about her sibling, in at least 10 years. She remarked, “I think it would be very hard to tell all when you don’t know me.”

The royal’s fraught relationship with her family is part of the reason why she was excited to welcome Lili this spring. “I grew up as an only child, which everyone who grew up around me knows,” she reflected. “And I wished I’d had siblings. I would have loved to have siblings. That’s why I’m so excited to be pregnant so that Archie has someone.”
