Weddings tend to bring out the worst in people. Sure, they’re about love and happiness and all things good.
But they’re also about disgruntled in-laws, demanding parents and random cousins that pop up out of the woodwork wanting an invite to the reception.
No one knows this better than Meghan Markle, who in the lead-up to the royal wedding to Prince Harry has no doubt spent several months listening to her many half-siblings and estranged family members talk crap about her.
Being the dignified soon-to-be royal that she is, the 36-year-old former Suits actress hasn’t really been able to give them a piece of her mind.
But British TV host Piers Morgan can. And boy, he did.
On Tuesday, Meghan’s half-sister Samantha Markle appeared on Good Morning Britain to ‘defend’ their father Thomas Markle, who reportedly staged paparazzi photos researching English things and was going to walk Meghan down the aisle but now isn’t.
“My father has really suffered at the hands of the media. I think a person has a right to say ‘Enough is enough,’” the 53-year-old told co-hosts Morgan and Susanna Reid.
It was at this point Morgan, who is known for making inflammatory comments, let rip.
Watch Piers Morgan question Samantha Markle below. Post continues after video.
“You say this is all the media’s fault, because the media has been treating him in a shabby way, many of our viewers may have watched your activities and think you have treated your sister Meghan in a very shabby way,” the 53-year-old said.
“You’ve spent the last two years criticising her, you called her a narcissist, selfish, that Hollywood changed her and that Prince Harry shouldn’t marry her, yet you have the gall to blame media vultures.
“There’s no bigger media vulture than you, is there, Ms. Markle? How much money have you made from trashing [her]?”
Surprisingly, this is probably the one and only time we’re on board with anything Morgan has to say. Because he’s right.
Samantha has made a nice little profit from sharing secrets from the Markle family. From her book The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister and accusing Meghan of cutting off their struggling family financially, Samantha’s spent the better part of two years speaking out against her younger half-sister.
It’s worth noting she hasn’t seen Meghan in 10 years, and the last time they spoke was in 2015.
So in honour of Meghan, let’s all agree to never complain about our family ever again, OK?
Did you have family drama during your wedding preparations? What advice would you give Meghan?
