The absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.
How gross is that, not only did Priddy sell her friendship with Meghan to the tabloids, but she actually sold pictures from Meghan's wedding. That is so sick and twisted imho, it just crossed so many lines of human decency.

Meghan’s uncle

I hope that Meghan’s father attends. And I also hope that his brother the diplomat is invited. It would be more enjoyable for Mr. Markle to have someone familiar to hang out with...

The diplomat brother was the one who alerted the press where Thomas lived in the first place.

I would give my own sister a break under the circumstances; perhaps Mr. Markle feels the same about his 79 year old brother.

Close friend reveals Meghan Markle's VERY strict mantras | Daily Mail Online

An article full of left handed compliments.
Quote:
It came as something of a surprise to her hosts, then, when Meghan wrote to say it simply would not do. It was in conflict with her personal beliefs. The owner, the Sultan of Brunei Hassanal Bolkiah – whose Dorchester Collection includes the Beverly Hills Hotel in LA and the Le Meurice in Paris – had recently suggested sharia punishments should be meted out to adulterers and those found to be homosexual. Women who had abortions would be flogged in public.

Gina said: 'Meghan emailed to say she would never stay at the Dorchester, or any hotels they are involved with. We understood and of course agreed.'

Her stance may well have softened since meeting Prince Harry. After all, she broke her boycott last May to watch her Prince play polo at the Sultan's vast Cosworth Park estate in Ascot.
Meghan’s representive booked a room at the Dorchester but she cancelled because it’s owned by the Sultan of Brunei.

She appears to have had a change of heart regarding the Sultan

Brunei is a member of the Commonwealth and the Sultan will probably be at the CHOGM

It is not unusual for older relatives to not know the contact details of younger ones, with the advent of facebook often young people no longer spread their phone and address.
It is also not unusual for family to live their own lives and not see each other for a while but still feel close as kin and be there for one another if ever they call. Families give each other space. I find it rude if Meghan has not invited her non criminal relatives. Even if they are a genuine threat the police checks will quietly intervene. To not invite quite close relatives is to have no faith nor hope in a future relationship. Your family is your family, embarrassing or not. To be ashamed or not welcoming is not to live a life of forgiveness and good manners. No other person has the power to make you mean spirited except yourself. Meghan's sister is mean. Does Meghan have to be mean back? Our royal family should be an example of kindness. ""


*Above is a qoute from another user, tried to "qoute" it but kept getting an error message*




I have to say I completely disagree with the above. Family members are the people who hurt others emotionaly (and physically) the most amd get away with it "because they are family". Many people have emotional issues and they continue to allow such abusive people into their lives because someone guilts them into forgiving family.
People need to cut off family members for their own emotional wellbeing. Always put yourself first and do whats best for you.

Also disagree on the royal family "being the example of kindness" by allowing such abusive and manipilative people to come to the wedding. A good example is to show thats its okay to do whats best for your emotional health. People also need understand that its acceptable to forgive people and still not allow them into your life

I am sure she just doing what needs to be done. No different than smiling in the presence of Trump if the time comes. And we all know her opinion of him. Well documented.

There's nothing to prove that this all happened as stated in the article. There's no proof, that Meghan had these ideals, and now has had a change of heart, because she's unable to speak out on her beliefs and thoughts.

You are reaching now. What possible angle could Priddy possibly push? And why? Meghan is known to speak well of both parents and in any case there was a batch of those photos online even before Priddy came on the scene with more. Fact is there are a load of different pictures of Meghan as an adult with her mother doing stuff together. But none of her as adult with her dad.

Another Point - if photos of her dad with her at the wedding existed or any pictures of her as an adult with her dad - they’d have resurfaced by now. The Markle clan aren’t renowned for being sellouts for nothing. They sell everything about Meghan. It’s what they live for since H&M.

I'm not the one making a claim about his absence or presence, Lady Reem. I'm simply saying that we do not know either way.

I'm not the one reaching.

More Markles crawling out of the woodwork.

Ye Gods! No one can choose the family they are born into, but wow, what an embarrassing nightmare these people are. Now we have a better inkling of why Harry said what he said on that radio show about Meghan finally having the family she never had!

I am sure everyone has skeletons in the family closet. And obviously anyone who suddenly becomes famous or who wins the lottery will end up being swamped by relatives they never knew they had or were formerly only acquainted with via holiday celebrations or family reunion gatherings. But this Markle circus, led by Samantha, is gobsmackingly unbelievable. Maybe we should keep in mind that Sam's original vicious aim was to slam Meghan in ways she cluelessly thought might lead to causing a breakup between H&M. Many in the media are unaware of the full extent of Sam's vicious rants on Internet outlets. Nothing Samantha says should be considered credible or genuine.

I don't understand anyone expressing sympathy for any of the lowdown Markle crew. Ms. Trish sounds delusional and obviously attention-seeking. Was she even aware that Meghan was on a very successful cable television series for 7 seasons! Did they send FedEx packages to the producers and USA network demanding guest passes to the studio over those long nights when Meghan and her castmates were filming?! Hopefully Trish and Sam will refrain from demanding a share of Meghan's per episode residuals.

At least Cory and his Mom appeared to offer genuine praise and a modicum of restraint, even if they too accepted money to be interviewed. Probably they were tired of being hassled for scuttlebutt and decided to end their silence in as kind a way as possible.

How do we know this was her motivation? I think Sam's a hot mess, but somehow I missed the disclosure of her motivation?

I think Sam says stuff to get attention. And it works; she get attention. Perhaps we could respond by not paying attention to, speculating or writing about her.

Well, it’s not that far fetched to think that when someone comes out by saying if Prince Harry and the royal family knew the real Meghan, he would no longer be dating her and then goes forward to say all kinds of nasty things about Meghan. Of course, once she realized how serious it was, she changed her tune.

Her initial tweets, when the relationship became public straight up said, that Harry would dump Meghan as soon as he would see the real social climbing person she is. Her clear motivation was to trash Meghan, and she did it a lot.

Because she said it herself. In the early stages of the romance she trashed Meghan constantly and posted stuff like "Harry should read my book and learn the truth." I mean you can't be any more clearer than that. She definitely posts stuff for attention but she also makes no secret of her true hate for Meghan. She just tries to hide it but is always comes out.

"Sticks and stones might hurt my bones but names will never hurt me" and the names are all noise that Ms Markle doesn't listen to. She is a happy camper and family will just have to back off and embarrass only themselves on the world stage [...]

I get your drift and I agree with you as far as Meghan is concerned.

IMO Samantha has been jealous of her sister her whole life and when she read Meghan was dating Prince Harry she lost it. Her tweets were nasty and it didn't take a Masters degree in psychology to figure she wanted to cause a break-up with her vile tweets.

But actually, I think she was also getting the reflection of the limelight and thoroughly enjoyed being bathed in it too. But I also think that like millions of other people, she didn't think this was a serious relationship . . . I mean please, a biracial divorce marrying a Prince? Not happening!

Suddenly, OMG it was happening and Samantha and a lot of other haters lost the plot and joined in the tweetstorm. Samantha kept it up right up until she realised there would be a televised royal wedding and she had to be nice to get an invitation. Unfortunately for her, that ship had already well and truly sailed.
