‘Let her be happy.’ Meghan Markle’s family drama sparks reactions

“Sounds like she has a lot of jealous family members.” “Her family is one piece of work.” Fans and Newsroom readers support Meghan Markle as her family drama threatens to overshadow her upcoming royal wedding.

It’s been a tough week for Prince Harry’s future bride. Markle has her hands full with all the media attention surrounding her father and half-siblings. Her dad, Thomas Markle, may not attend the wedding, as he faces surgery following a heart attack he suffered last week. He also, with the encouragement of his daughter Samantha (Meghan’s half-sister), staged photos with the paparazzi.

Samantha’s been very vocal about her feelings towards Meghan, saying she’s “way out of her league to tell me that I can’t speak.” Meanwhile, her half-brother Thomas Markle Jr. wrote a letter to Prince Harry warning him against marrying Meghan.

Newsroom commenters are lending their support: “Hope she finds happiness with Prince Harry and his family.” Another reader added, “Sadly these types of family drama go on all the time. The only difference is Meghan is marrying into a high profile family, so the sister has an audience.”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tie the knot on Saturday, May 19.
