Meghan Markle's half-sister, Samantha, said there's "no planned meeting" between the duchess and her father Thomas Markle. Meghan Markle's half-sister, Samantha Markle, shot down reports that the Duchess of Sussex is planning to reconcile with Thomas Markle following a string of interviews where the estranged father slammed Meghan and the royal family for ignoring him. Samantha Markle told The Sun over the weekend that Meghan isn't making an effort to reach out to Thomas Markle after a source told the Daily Mail that Prince Harry's wife was making a trip to the United States to talk to the 74-year-old. "I speak to him [Thomas] every day and it's sad but, no, they have not contacted him," Markle said. "There is no meeting planned, that is PR spin."
