Meghan Markle is reportedly planning on extending an olive branch to her family following months of drama.
The Duchess’ father, Thomas and half-sister, Samantha have taken part in many interviews about Meghan’s relationship with them over the past year.
While Samantha has criticised the 37-year-old for not talking to their father, the mother-to-be is reportedly ready to reach out to her family and invite them to meet her baby with Prince Harry when it is born.
“Meghan understands the pressures of intense media scrutiny and she is saddened by what her family have had to endure,” a source told The Daily Mail.
“She plans to extend an olive branch to the family and invite them to visit after the baby is born – her sister included.”
The Duchess is reportedly hoping “that the baby will bring her family back together” which is due at the end of April/beginning of May.
Just last month Meghan’s father released extracts of a letter she sent him in August, in which the former actress said: “If you love me, as you tell the press you do, please stop. Please allow us live our lives in peace. Please stop lying, please stop creating so much pain, please stop exploiting my relationship with my husband.”
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Thomas said that he expected the letter “to be an olive branch” but he felt “it was a dagger to the heart.”
