Cape Town – Like clockwork Meghan’s half-sister, Samantha Markle, has chimed in after Thomas Markle made a desperate plea for reconciliation with his royal daughter.

As previously reported, Thomas appeared on Monday’s episode of Good Morning Britain on ITV pleading for Meghan to make contact, saying the rift caused by her marriage to Prince Harry “can't continue forever”.

Following the interview, Samantha responded to tweets which claimed the Duchess of Sussex’s estranged father was only doing the interviews for money, E! News reports.

In a number of protected tweets, Samantha stated that Thomas was not paid for the televised interview and continued to badmouth her half-sister for not making contact with their father.

She further revealed that Thomas had turned down “$50 000 interviews” throughout the year.

Piers Morgan, host of GMB and who conducted the interview with Thomas, reiterated that he had not been paid for his appearance.


The controversial host added that he is giving Thomas a platform to speak because he feels sorry for him.
