What kind of selfish self-centred piece of work literally hijacks the lead up to his daughter’s wedding and makes it all about him, using TMZ as his mouthpiece ? [...] who insults the BFR as “Outdated” and “Asinine” yet still complains about the Queen meeting a fellow Head of State, before him.

And why concern himself with the knee length of skirts/dresses of female royals?? (“...Why do they have to cover their knees?”)

Thank you, I tried to find the info and it as usual escapes me on the internet as you know........*Exaggerating* that is the least of her character.....

Is there no way for BP or KP to use the Protection from Harassment Act 1997 to stop any of this nonsense? Or go to the Independent Press Standards Organisation?

I suspect the real reason behind using the media to coerce Meghan into contacting Sr. is because they don't have an establised access point. Sr. screwed that up IMHO when he leaked about the honeymoon destination(IMHO). The UK media are not just investing in the M.rkles acting as their dancing monkeys to embarass Meghan but also for current inside information. Since Sr. and half sibling daughter are working as a team. Anything Meghan tells Sr. is leaked down to the estranged half sibling. The media wants a return on their investment.

I do notice that there is something totally missing from the background of these people who are blatantly garnering headlines in the press because they *know* something. The truth of the matter is that they don't.

These are three people that perhaps could be summed up as seeing a royal family as something straight out of Disney. The palaces, the tiaras, the pomp and pageantry that the British are so well known for. Perhaps even throw in the photo ops of waving to a crowd and cutting a ribbon or three. Throw in coats of arms and titles that are impressive and we have the world view of the Markle trio when it comes to the British royals. You can buy tickets of Disneyland and you can buy tickets to tour Buckingham Palace and gaze and stare at the splendor but the realities of the British monarchy takes actual time to learn and one finds out its not Disney at all.

If these people had any kind of a genuine interest in Meghan's life or even had the least bit of a twinge to find out just what Meghan was getting herself into with marrying Harry, information abounds at their fingertips. They didn't bother. They didn't want to bother. Its like winning the lottery and a whole lot of green dollars. People come out of the woodwork wanting to be the new best friend.

With Samantha and Tom, Jr. being so much older when Meghan was born, it is only natural that there was some sort of sibling rivalry. Meghan was someone that took attention away from them with their father and other factors figure in that were never resolved. What we're seeing now is sibling envy and Psychology Today describes this as:

"Psychology Today agrees that rivalry can turn into envy in adult siblings, and adds that sibling envy may be a reflection of inner struggles with confidence. “If someone is envious of what you have accomplished, that says a lot about their own self-esteem and sense of accomplishment,” they explain."

Its not only the bleatings and mooing and cackling of the Markle trio that are making the rounds in the media but also the media taking an interest in just who these people are and its not making any of them look good or gives them any kind of credibility.

The moral of the story? It still remains to be written but I don't think any of the three Markles are going to have that "happily ever after" they're trying to worm in on or even destroy for Meghan. One reaps what they sow.

Psychology Today quote comes from this article which goes into more detail.

Dignifying these ghastly people with ANY response [legal or otherwise], would grant them an importance [in their heads, and the public's] they simply don't merit. They do no damage to the Institution, and the damage to the unfortunate Duchess is ALREADY done, and their relationship with her [and any potential one with her husband] is as dead as a Dodo.
BLANKING them completely is the wisest course of action.

I wouldn't be surprised if there's a team of lawyers that are amassing all the information, quotes, accusations and whatnot that are out there. They are not going to do anything without having ducks all nicely in a unbreakable cordon.

Once they make *any* kind of a move, the Markle trio may see it as finally getting a response and a rise out Meghan and her family that they've been working so hard to get. To do anything at all, Meghan's team would first and foremost want to be sure that whatever action they take would stick and solve the problem.

The problem with the Protection from Harrassment Act 1997 is that it only pertains to the UK. The Markle trio have their attack outposts in the US also.

This, right here, is the most valid reason why Meghan's contact number that Daddy had for her is no longer in service. Meghan was not only cutting off contact with her father but also ensuring that her direct line of communication couldn't be leaked to anyone.

The old expression "loose lips sinks ships" comes to mind.

I believe the only approach is the one Harry and Meghan have taken by cutting off all contact with them they have deprived any of their stories of oxygen and they don't 'take'.

Reminds me of the 1970 movie "Suppose They Gave A War And Nobody Came". That was a comedy too.

That's probably the real reason she wants Meghan to contact Markle Sr., so that he'll serve as a conduit for new information.
Ding, ding, ding, we have a winner.

This is exactly what is going on. As long as Meghan refuses to be drawn there is hope that eventually media interest will fizzle.

Okay, I am going to jump in here with a thought, before Meghan and Harry together came into Sam's life what did she have to dwell on ........from all that I have read she lived a pretty quiet life in Florida, right...well with all the attention she has been getting with bashing Meghan, all the interviews, all the *money* and now a TV show........I really do not think she would have accomplished any of this on her own now, right.......so who does she *OWE* all this glory to (the glory is in her mind only..) well her sister that she has not talked to in a decade now........Sam owes Meghan a huge Thank You for all the attention, the money, the TV show, and everything now, even a trip to London and I bet my last frozen Margarita that there will be a picture of her in front of either BP or KP when she is there filming the show before or after .....boy IMHO Sam should be very grateful to Meghan for her new found wealth.....

Somehow, some way, its all going to come down crashing on Samantha when her well runs dry. If one were to suggest that Samantha owes everything that she's presently milking for dear life to Meghan, she'd be aghast and angry that anyone could suggest such a thing! Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if this is what someone may throw at her in the CBB house.

Meghan is a bright shining light in the face of relentless bullying from a ghastly family. She is showing others who feel overwhelmed by mean people that you can achieve good things, great things and forge a decent path for yourself. Never lower yourself down to their level.
And surely you will find your Prince or princess. Even tho he or she doesn't have to be royal.

Exactly! In many ways what she is experiencing is anyone's worst nightmare, but however much they try to topple her, she maintains. Cannot be easy but likely she has learned over the years to be detached and stay focused on her own life. She does have family she can depend on. The rest is smoke and mirrors.

BTW I am one who believes the extent of the familial collapse was not anticipated by Meghan. For sure that side of the family she knew was dysfunctional but I don't think the scale of the catastrophe once the glamour of the cameras came into play could have been foreseen. Likely Mr Markel Sr's betrayal has been a serious personal blow, one that (like someone here indicated) the half-sister is reveling in. Nasty. But who among us cannot relate to such insidious familial secrets, whether near of distant?

With the above said, I have to say Samantha is remarkable in her own obscurely twisted way as she talks her talk: exceptionally strong in her own right, verbally proficient, intellectually quick, and a good-looking woman (still) despite her physical illness (though even in the two years since her grabbing headlines one can see the toll the illness is taking). She is an 'event' and is weirdly compelling like a train wreck is. Had she channeled her talents and energies in a more positive way in her life she might have achieved the fame she clearly craves, rather than the notoriety she is now involved in.

It's difficult to say how much the deterioration is due to her illness and how much is due to her unrelenting anger, hatred and jealousy. Those emotions tend to take a toll.

I'm glad that more media sources are abandoning trying to coerce Meghan to contact toxic family members. This article is really good: https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry...b0fd5c73c7c4a1

“Toxic people usually don’t change. Even their kindness can be a form of manipulation,” Campbell said. “I don’t think she’s cut ties with them to hurt them, but for the purposes of protecting herself. Meghan needs to remind herself that she deserves to be loved without games, manipulation and scapegoating.”

“Grieve for what you did not have, but then move on,” she said. “Fighting the natural urge to be close to your toxic family of origin, to try to work it out, is important. Detach. If others judge you because you did not invite these people to your home or wedding or you blocked the phone line, so be it.”

I wish more UK media would focus on the real issue and stop trying to bully Meghan into contacting toxic and bullying family members.

In all fairness, immediately after the wedding, I haven't seen any coverage of Meghan's sister or even father sprouting off against her. With the exception of people who actively seek out their latest shenanigans, or those whose social media or news feeds are tailored to show these kinds of news, they don't show up anywhere anymore. The news has been almost completely on her and Harry's engagements.

Sometimes if you give a person enough rope, they'll eventually hang themselves with it. It is very possible that Meghan won't have to do a darned thing to try and rein in her e(strange)d half sister.

This is a good op/ed article that I happened across and although I've stated before that this is what may happen, this article shows I'm not the only one to think along these lines.

This may be exactly what is being 'looked forward to' in a twisted kind of way:

Quote:
Of course, while the effect of Grant's exploitation of her sister's royal status may be to embarrass Meghan, it's likely she may very well end up only further embarrassing herself in the process. Perhaps one of those otherwise pleasant and down-to-earth British C-listers will take the opportunity to very publicly call Grant out on the show (we're sure the show's producers are counting on it).
Right there: the show's producers will be counting on someone calling Samantha out on her nastiness. Train-wreck.
Tell me when it's over. Good grief!
