Meghan Markle’s estranged half-sister Samantha has begged the duchess to let their father meet her baby, despite a well-publicised rift.

The desperate plea follows a stream of criticism towards the new mum from her family - something Samantha now claims should be left in the past.

“We've extended the olive branch and now it is Meghan's turn,” Samantha told Daily Mail TV adding, “I would really like to see everyone reach out.”

US-based Samantha also suggested her famous sister should be the one to patch things up with their father Thomas, who Meghan famously fell out with in the lead up to the royal wedding.

“I want Meg to be part of his life,” Samantha said in reference to Thomas.

“I hope something sticks with her – that she decides to do the right thing for my dad. I hope she decides to do the right thing this time.”

Her plea comes just days after the long-awaited birth of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s first child, a son.

However, since the pair’s relationship went public, the Markles - spearheaded by Samantha - have engaged in near-constant attempts to grab headlines at Meghan’s expense.

Just days before pulling out of the royal wedding last year, Thomas was nabbed selling stages photos of himself to the press.

Samantha’s own claims have included predictions her sister would ‘fill up’ her home with nannies along with several tries to label Meghan a ‘narcissist’.

On Monday, blue ‘It’s A Boy’ balloons were delivered to Thomas’ Mexico home, right in the eye of cameras, along with a massive bunch of congratulatory flowers.
