Samantha Markle’s Daughter: According to Meghan Markle, she was told she couldn’t invite Samantha Markle’s biological daughter to her 2018 wedding, although the two are close friends.
The duchess opened up about her relationship with her estranged sister Samantha and niece Ashleigh Hale in the third episode of the Netflix docuseries “Harry and Meghan,” which premiered on Thursday.
Samantha Markle, Meghan’s half-sister and an outspoken critic of the duchess since her 2016 romance with Prince Harry, is Hale’s mother. In February 2021, Samantha released a book about Meghan titled The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister.
“Suddenly, it seemed like she was in every room. Neither your middle name nor your birth date is known to me. You’re telling them that you reared me and that you gave me the nickname “Princess pushy?”” Meghan has heard about Samantha’s experiences with the press.
During the documentary, Samantha made a public statement claiming the “media invented remarks that have been ascribed to her.” Insider’s request for comment from Samantha Markle went unanswered for some time.
Hale, Samantha’s daughter, says in the docuseries that her paternal grandparents took care of her when she was two and raised her. She hadn’t seen Samantha since she was six years old, but in 2007 they got back in touch.
After Samantha and Hale got back in touch, Meghan said she emailed Hale. According to Meghan, they “hit it off,” became friends, and even took some holidays together.
“I feel like she plays a lot of different parts for me. Besides the obvious similarities to a sister, she’s also maternal, a best friend, “The statement by Hale.

According to Hale, she and Samantha stopped conversing after Samantha began complaining bitterly to her about Meghan once she started dating Harry.
After consulting with the palace’s press staff, Meghan ultimately decided not to invite Hale to the royal wedding in May 2018 because it would be too confusing for guests to understand why Hale was invited, but Samantha was not.

“While H and I were driving, I gave her a call and put her on speaker so we could explain the recommendations and evaluation to her. Yes, that hurts a lot, “As Meghan put it.
“I understand where it was coming from,” Hale added, “but I was hurt on some level.” “To learn that my biological mother was the cause of a change in a relationship means so much to me. It was difficult to think that it was all her fault that it had to be taken away.”
Insider’s request for a response to Buckingham Palace, Kensington Palace, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s representatives went unanswered.
