Samantha Markle was turned away from Kensington Palace after travelling to the UK in the hope of repairing her relationship with the Duchess of Sussex, but the American native branded the trip as “mission accomplished” after she handed a letter to a guard outside the Royal residence.
Over the weekend, photos emerged showing the Duchess of Sussex’s estranged sister handing an envelope to a guard outside Kensington Palace.
Mrs Markle denied she was turned away and explained that she was extending “an olive branch” to her sister.
Speaking to DailyMailTV, she said: “I was very respectful and I went there to deliver a letter.
“Nobody was turned away, nobody was disrespectful and it was a wonderful experience.
“It was a nice experience and nobody was mean to me at all, I was quite surprised.”
She explained that while she could not say what she wrote exactly, she believed that she “accomplished” her goal and that “we’ll just have to wait and see how it is received”.
The Florida resident added: “I wanted to express some sentiments and set some records straight.
“I can’t give the details of that but I really wanted the world and really my sister and the British Royal family to know what happened and know the truth about a lot of things.”
Then, she addressed her sister Meghan directly and said: “Let’s just cut through all the cr*p, you’re a woman, life is short. I believe you have it in your heart to do the right thing here.
“You know dad loves you, you know he’s been there for you more than anyone, so don’t let this public monster and misperception that he’s like a sperm donor dad trying to be involved all of a sudden.
“You know that’s not true and so to let that happen, come on Meg, have a heart, I know you’re a woman, I know you have a heart in there.
“God, the Grinch grew a heart, albeit at the last minute. I’m not comparing you to the Grinch but I will say I know you have it in you to make this right.”
The elder sister is estranged from her brother Thomas Jr as well as their mother Roslyn, but she remains close to her father Thomas Sr.
She said she was outraged when she heard about the accusations that he had faked his ill-health in order to get out of going to the ceremony.
Samantha said: “I think the heart attack and all of that public speculation about a fake heart attack was just crazy.
“And that he had to endure that on his own while he was humiliated was sick and crazy. I think she needs to put him in the spotlight for being an amazing dad and I think she needs to be truthful about it.”
She also denied that the photos taken right before the wedding were “not a photo scandal” and stated that he had been forced into doing them because the media had been portraying him “like a fat, nasty slob”.
Samantha added that her step-mother Doria Ragland was made to look like the better parent.
She said: “My dad is amazing. If you could imagine a combination of Rob Reiner and Tom Hanks, that is my dad.
