Meghan Markle's Sister Samantha Says She 'Doesn't Have a Heart' in New Documentary

Family members of Meghan, Duchess of Sussex (AKA Meghan Markle) are continuing to call her out.

In the documentary, Samantha takes on Meghan for writing a letter to their father Thomas Markle explaining that he’s broken her heart into “a million pieces” by doing interviews against her and Prince Harry.

“She doesn’t have a heart or she would been doing everything she could to make him comfortable, and reciprocate, and be loving and gracious, and make sure he’s comfortable in his old age. So broken heart? No, his heart’s broken. She can’t turn herself into the victim here,” Samantha said.

Meghan and her father have been estranged, as well as other members of her family, since her wedding in May of 2018.

    Under one of her many former names (Samantha Rassmussen she and her current partner had charges of physical child abuse substantiated involving her youngest daughter. She left the state before the investigation was complete and moved to Florida. She threw her daughter out after publicly calling her a demon and her estranged mother raised her. So why does anyone listen to comments on family.

    Meghan is trash, but by the time Harry realizes it – if he hasn’t already – his family will have suffered the humiliation of his mistake.

  • Nikki

    I don’t know very much about Meghan but if I were to call anyone out, it would be her family who can’t seem to keep their mouths shut. It says more about them that they keeping talking than it does about her.

  • Kat

    Omg Meghan is too good, I wouldn’t have married Harry because I would have made the news for assault. I would have knocked this bitch out wheelchair or not.
    I’m not gracious at all. She is in this case she takes a lot of shit from the demons she shares a DNA with.
    I have several demons siblings so I understand how infuriating it must be fot her.

  • Kat

    how is she trash ??? Are you ? We don’t know you either !

  • cuzjcacjo

    perhaps, but how she treats her father in particular will come back to haunt her. she’ll be like that as a parent (willing to cut a parent from her kid’s life). she is obviously not interested in having a strong relationship with her parents. good luck to the royals when they divorce.

  • KS_in_TP

    I still maintain that some’n ain’t right. Lots of people have toxic family. Lots of people have estranged relatives. But LOTS of those people don’t do what Samantha and her dad have done, and continue to do, even in the face of people all over the world hating them for it. Still, they persist. I’m not saying Meghan deserves this, but I am saying that Samantha and their dad didn’t just wake up one morning and start hating Meghan for no good reason. Something happened — maybe it was years ago and they wanted until her marriage to Harry to have their vengeance in a big way that would embarrass and humiliate her — whatever it was, Meghan has a part in this.

  • YaThink

    They are low-life scum!

    Low life people DO act like this!

    I believe Markle’s dad didn’t do the best as a father for all of his children. I believe he probably doted on Meghan, and Samantha was jealous from the beginning. I hate to say it, but I think the father is reaping what he sowed. Also, Meghan’s mother doesn’t seem to have any connection to him anymore. Usually a child will keep parents talking to one another. They come together for graduations, birthdays, marriages and births. He’s not married and he was out living by himself and seemed totally fine with it. But now his Meghan married royalty and money, and the evil Samantha is trying to get her revenge.

    If the father treated Meghan better, it’s not Meghan’s fault. She was just a child and that was her daddy. My guess is that Samantha is the one pulling all the strings with Meghan Markle’s father. He’s old, in bad health and vulnerable to manipulation.

  • YaThink

    Meghan Markle was probably living her life, traveling around and checking in with Dad now and then to say “Hi daddy,” and he was content. But now Meghan is married to a Prince. Then there’s also the WEALTH! I think the money is driving them all nuts. For Samantha, Meghan Markle is winning again, while she is poor, low life and bitter.

  • YaThink

    I can relate too. I was favored and I wasn’t bratty or rubbing it in. I didn’t understand all that stuff when I was a kid. I have whole siblings, but because of how my father favored me, it caused all kind of jealousy and resentment. I was always on the outside with them. My sister closest to me in age has forever complained about how our dad liked me better, but she never told him what that did to her or how he hurt her. She used to deliberately do mean things to me, and I kept saying to myself, “Why did she do that?” I knew I didn’t do anything to her.

    My dad is gone now, but my sister’s husband and kids all know that I was the favored one, and they say it like I am to blame. Now that I am an adult I remember it all and I understand why all that happened, but it’s a shame it got to that.

    Generally when all this jealousy stuff happens in families, the blame is on the parents. They have usually done something or showed favoritism to certain kids and then the kids sense it and have sibling rivalries.

  • YaThink

    I believe the father is to blame. I believe he neglected his first family. Later, he had Meghan. She was adorable and he probably showed her a lot of love and Samantha became resentful… and hateful.

    Also, with the father having a child with a black woman, you never know how that other side of the family felt about it. They probably were even angrier about that.

  • KS_in_TP

    I definitely believe Thomas and Samantha are the true villains in this story. I believe they are, in this order: jealous, bitter, and enraged. But I still have this strong sense that Meghan is just not innocent as a dove in all this. It was weird, from the very beginning, how fast it all escalated. This is the behavior of two people who feel scorned. I guess I just don’t believe people act out like this for no reason. Jealousy, bitterness, rage — that doesn’t just come from “You have more than me”. And I’m not saying that whatever Meghan did to piss them off was wrong — she may have been very justified in doing whatever she did, but I do believe she did something and I believe there’s more to this story. You know, people can be awful but they can still be right. I think Piers Morgan is an unpleasant man, but I believe him 100% when he says that Meghan was friends with him one day, and then the next day without warning she ghosted him and that this behavior coincided with her about to go public with her romance with Harry. I believe that, because I know people like that, who just have no more use for you when their status in life shifts, especially when their status in life shifts in such a profound way that they don’t have to fear burned bridges. Well, she has a right to be friends with whomever she wants. But I believe him that it went down like he said.

  • YaThink

    I believe that too, but Piers Morgan needs to get over it. He is part of the media, something Markle is trying to avoid. They have not been life-long friends. I don’t think it was that personal with Piers, but maybe he hoped it would be, because everybody wants a piece of this royal couple. Piers being on the inside would be great for him and his career or whatever he’s doing.

    I think Meghan is a good person and she did what she had to do regarding Piers Morgan.

    Tom Cruise cut off Jamie Foxx–just like that! I believe Jamie thought they were friends and I also think that may be why Jamie took up with Tom’s ex, like maybe a way to stay in Cruise’s world somehow. Unfortunately, it didn’t work.

    I believe that now that Meghan is royalty, Mr. Markle sees the money and he wants to be taken care of. I don’t think he’s jealous of his daughter. He just wants some of that life, like Meghan’s mom is getting. And with health problems, he may be looking at “the end” and figure, “I want this now. I want to be where my daughter is. I want to be with the grandchild and have someone around me to look after me.” That makes perfect sense… but with Samantha in the wings? Samantha would probably use their dad to get money from the royals. Yes, I think she is just that nasty of a woman and it’s sad.

  • YaThink

    Harry and Meghan are the main reason I come to this board. I’m just sending out prayers, best wishes and everything great for them. I want them to succeed in life and marriage. I want them to have a wonderful family and unending happiness. I really do like them together. :-)

  • cuzjcacjo

    ok, nice explanation, a one that i have not seen repeated before. willing to at least consider this as a possibility.

  • Catrìona

    Meghan Markle briefly met Piers Morgan in a pub for a drink after which she never contacted him again. He followed her on social media, but they were never friends.

    Morgan is known to be the ultimate bottom-feeder. Meghan clearly had no interest in pursuing a ‘friendship’ with this married man. Her rejection resulted in his acting like a scorned lover out for revenge. He believes that Meghan OWES him access to her life and to members of the RF.

    Only a fool believes anything Piers Morgan says, about anyone.

  • KS_in_TP

    Were you there? I wasn’t there. He claims they had a friendship. He could be lying. But unless you were there you really can’t know what happened.

  • Catrìona

    He is lying. PM makes no secret that he is a misogynist.

    Google ‘piers morgan misogynist’ and read what he says about women.

    Women have the right to set their own boundaries, something that appears to infuriate men like PM.

  • Catrìona

    Why should any adult child, male or female, be expected to tolerate a parent that goes out of his/her way to repeatedly hurt and humiliate their child ?

  • KS_in_TP

    Fair enough.

  • Catrìona

    Did you have an opportunity to see the entire interview on UK Channel 5 ?

    At 27:20 minutes into the documentary, Samantha says : “I definitely think they should have gone to see him promptly. Could they have postponed the wedding? Ummm, maybe not. But I would think that after the wedding that Meg and Harry would have gone to the hospital – at a minimal – and then taken him to Buckingham Palace after he recovered.”

    That is a very bizarre comment considering that Buckingham Palace is the home of HM, who is also the head of state.

    Going by direct quotes that the Markles have made since Harry and Meghan’s relationship was made public, the Markles have an absurd sense of entitlement.

    Keep in mind that prior to President Trump’s visit to the UK, Thomas Markle was furious that HM was going to meet the president of the US before she met him. Markle stated “If the Queen is willing to meet our arrogant, ignorant, and insensitive president she has no excuse not to meet me….”

    No reasonable person would blame Meghan and Harry for breaking off contact with the Markles.

  • YaThink

    You know, they’d better watch it. All that jealousy, anger and fury does a body BAD! If they would only change their approach, I’m sure Meghan would have been more than happy to have her father around, but he would embarrass her for sure.

  • YaThink

    Catriona, no I haven’t seen it. I’m going to look into, though. Thanks!

  • JenJamTX

    This is one I can “a bit” get. I have a toxic and jealous sister. My entire life I have always tried to make the “right” choices. Made good grades, went to college, married a super successful man and live a pretty fabulous life. She has serious resentment about that. No mater how gracious I try to be (and there are times when I want to slap her down) I can just never overcome her petty jealousy and resentment. It’s exhausting. Even her kids have told me to cut her out of my life because of what she says about me and my husband. Jealousy is an ugly beast.

  • KS_in_TP

    That’s awful. It sounds really obsessive. I guess that’s why Scotland Yard had Samantha put on a “fixated persons” list. She is literally fixated on Meghan.

  • Catrìona

    Sadly, there are some people that build their life-force on the anger and negativity that you mention. Strange as that seems to normal people, people like this actually get stronger. Given all that has happened, and the extensive entitlement that Thomas Markle has built into his relationship with Meghan, I very much doubt that Meghan or Harry can ever re-establish trust with that man.

    She’s a phony with all her names she was born Yvonne too.
