- Samantha Markle has offered an olive branch to bring the family back together
- She said Meghan’s decades long estrangement should ‘ride on her conscience’
- Also criticized the royal family for their decision not to bestow her father a coat of arms like others that marry into the crown
The Duchess of Sussex‘s estranged half-sister Samantha has released an extraordinary appeal inspired by Bishop Michael Curry’s wedding address.
Samantha, the daughter of Meghan’s father Thomas, says she was deeply affected by the preacher’s message of love inside St George’s Chapel.
After decades of separation she has offered an olive branch to bring the family back together, reports The Sun.

She called on the Duchess of Sussex to ‘do the morally and religiously right thing’, adding that their separation should ‘ride on her conscience’.
‘I watched the bishop talk about love and unity and forgiveness and I hoped it would strike a chord within Meghan.
‘I feel a religious and moral obligation to be open to her and not be vindictive or isolating or hurt.
‘This should ride on her conscience as a moral obligation to at some point communicate with me and be united rather than divided – as that was the whole message.
Samantha cashed in Meghan’s wedding by watching her half-sister wed from her home in Florida – alongside a television crew in a paid-for appearance.
Her partner Mark Phillips, 60, suggested the appearance was earning her a five-figure sum.

‘You can’t go in there,’ he said outside his home. ‘She is making big money with an exclusive TV interview.’
Samantha also took the chance to lash out at the crown, insisting their family dramas were far greater than the Markle’s.
‘Well the royals had generations of scandal in their own family.
‘You’ve got inbreeding, you’ve got substance abuse, you’ve got alcohol abuse, you’ve got infidelity.’
She also attacked the royal family for their decision not to give her father a coat of arms – unlike the other fathers of commoners who marry into royalty.
Samantha’s offer to build bridges with the Duchess is a huge U-turn for the wheelchair-bound Markle.
She also claimed Meghan’s mum Doria Ragland ‘hogged the limelight’ at her daughter’s wedding.

She has been accused of cashing in on her half-sister’s fame by writing a book about her entitled The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister.
She added Meghan has made her feel as if her family is not worthy by ‘excluding’ them, suggesting this was against the tenets of her baptismal vows.
She added if Meghan has been in the Queen’s church she should practice what she preaches.
She also revealed Meghan’s father Thomas, 73, who two weeks ago suffered a heart attack is now being secretly cared for in LA.
He is reportedly taking blood thinners.
She called on Prince Harry to fly Thomas over once he is back to full health in order that he is able to fulfill his lifelong dream of visiting Buckingham Palace.
