So much for a baby bringing people together.
Even a very famous baby with a very cute name and a couple of loving parents.
Just a few days after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced the birth of their first child, the latter’s cruel half-sister has broken her silence about the blessed development.
And if you think Samantha Markle used the occasion to say kind words about Meghan and/or to mend the rift that Samantha is entirely responsible for, well…
… you must also think Prince William has remained loyal to Kate Middleton throughout their marriage.
"I love it," Samantha told DailyMailTV late Wednesday when asked about Meghan having a son, adding:
"Family is family. What I think is incredible is that it’s a great moment historically and although the adults have a lot of water under the bridge, I would really like to see everyone reach out.
"We’ve extended the olive branch and now it is Meghan’s turn."
Yup, there it is again.
There is Samantha once more placing blame for her failed relationship with Meghan directly on the lovely shoulders of the Duchess.
For those unaware, Samantha and Meghan share the same father — and almost literally nothing else.
Samantha is 17 years old than Meghan and the two did NOT grow up in the same household.
They’ve scarcely been in touch over the years, yet Samantha has taken every opportunity possible ever since Meghan started dating Harry to trash the former actress, claiming she’s phony and fake and unappreciative of her family.
Meghan has somehow managed to take the high ground and never respond in public.
"We’re all welcoming the baby – Markles, Raglands, Sussexes, Windsors," continued Samantha in this interview.
"In terms of the gene pool, we’ve all made a contribution to this wonderful little boy who will probably grow up to be an exceptional man and we’d like to treat this as if we’re all a big family.
"It would be nice not to react to what we’ve heard in the news but to personally meet him and let him judge us for himself."
Samantha is likely speaking here for her dad as well, who chose not to attend the Royal Wedding last May and who issued his own weird statement in light of the Royal Baby’s birth this week.
Markle and Harry posed with their precious newborn yesterday, announcing his name a few hours later.
It is Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor and we actually think it’s rather adorable.
“It’s magic. It’s pretty amazing. I have the best two guys in the world, so I’m really happy," Meghan told the media on Wednesday, saying of her little one:
"He has the sweetest temperament. He’s really calm."
And Samantha did conclude her statement with a few nice words at least.
While also claiming that she was speaking for an entire nation.
"I want [Archie] to know he’s got a big family and he’s part of an amazing historical time and we’re excited for him," she said.
"We’re excited for Meg and Harry – I am really excited for her. I love her, she’s my baby sister and it doesn’t matter what we’ve all said back and forth but she’s got to do the right thing.
"I just want to say Meg, you’ve got a world here and family here [in the U.S.] that’s excited for you."
In the end, however, the woman who is exploiting this entire situation to write a memoir and gain publicity simply could not help but continue to hammer Markle for allegedly turning her back on her loved ones.
That’s just how Samantha Markle rolls.
This was how she wrapped up the interview, referencing Thomas Markle and making a very selfish, narrow-minded and biased plea:
"I want Meg to be part of his life, I want Meg to be able to share this beautiful time with him in whatever way she can.
"I think it’s important for her too. I hope something sticks with her – that she decided to do the right thing for my dad. Life is short and we’re family.
"I hope she decides to do the right thing this time."
