Meghan Markle's half-siblings hit back at Netflix series as 'horrible' and ... trends now

Meghan Markle's half-siblings have hit back at the first three episodes of the Duke and Duchess' Netflix series as 'horrible' and 'hurtful' towards their family.

Speaking on Talk TV, Thomas Markle Jr. called the documentary 'a little bit disturbing' that made 'ridiculous' claims.

In episode three of the couple's bombshell Netflix docuseries released today, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex reflected on events leading up to their royal wedding, resulting in a relationship breakdown with her father, 78.  

Mr Markle Jr. and his sister Samantha were both offended by the remark made by Prince Harry about Meghan's father.

The Duke of Sussex said that he blamed himself for Meghan's rift with her father Thomas Markle because 'if Meg wasn't with me then her Dad would still be her Dad'. 

He added: 'She had a Father before this and now she doesn't have a Father. And I shouldered that.'

Reacting to the comment that, Mr Markle Jr. said: 'I think it's horrible. The documentary is so far off on so many different levels, it's really a little bit disturbing.

'Saying that she doesn't have a family and she doesn't have a Father, and Harry saying that she has no Father now, that's just ridiculous.'

Ms Markle said that she didn't want her Father to watch the series.

'He's been through so much — two heart attacks and a stroke — and she enabled this, watched it, did nothing about it, and for Harry to say something like that is egregious,' she told GB News. 

Both siblings accused Meghan of lying in the documentary, with Mr Markle Jr. adding that the Netflix show prompted him to work on his own documentary.

He told Talk TV: 'She just basically brushed the entire family under the carpet like we don't exist, and then lied about not having a family, and lied about she doesn't have a family that she's always wanted.

'We've always been here. The documentary is way off. That's what's actually prompted me to work with my own production team and coming out in like 2023 our side of a documentary that's going to shed a lot of light that needs to be shed,' he said.

He added: 'The amount of unprecedented files, photos and videos and documentation that we're going to be including in our documentary — it's going to tell a whole different story.

'I think the general public in the UK and America knows that now the Markles aren't bad people, we're just like a normal family like everybody else.

'We do exist, and when one person tells lies, this is what happens — you end up looking ridiculous.'

Ms Markle said that there was a 'vicious cycle of wanting to set the record straight'.
