The British royal family should reach out to Meghan Markle’s clan to end the ongoing sore between the two families.

Dr. Anna Whitelock, a royal historian, and commentator described the relationship between Markle’s family and the British royal clan as an “ongoing sore.” She also said that the ongoing feud doesn’t help make the royal family look good.

“I think as soon as, or even before, the engagement was announced there should have been a kind of family liaison officer who would go to the Markle family and prepare and advise them. I think it’s just naivety that this family from America, which has no knowledge or experience of royal circles, would somehow be able to manage it all,” she told Express.

Dr. Whitelock then went on to compare the relationship of Prince William’s family to that of Kate Middleton’s clan.

“It was always going to be a different prospect for Kate Middleton. Her family was more typical for marrying into the royal family. I mean they were not aristocrats, but they were upper middle class and they knew how these things worked. They were not new to this in the way that the Markle family have been. It does not look like they have particularly handled that part of the relationship,” she explained.

The royal historian added that the royal family hopes to get their lives back on track amid Thomas Markle’s family members ongoing interviews. Dr. Whitelock also said that Markle built her own life and career even before marrying Prince Harry, and her platform was never dependent on her dad of half-siblings.

“She was a love match with Harry and her public profile was not because she was from a landed, well-recognized family, it was because she was her own celebrity. Meghan is a Duchess of a social media age,” she concluded.
