Samantha Markle Tells Meghan Markle That Her 2019 Resolution Should Be to "Appreciate People" and "Be Honest"

Meghan Markle's estranged half-sister, Samantha Markle, gave an interview in which she suggested new years resolutions for the duchess.

You know how Meghan Markle's family is just the worst? Well, that's still the case going into 2019, apparently. Meghan's estranged half-sister, Samantha Markle, decided to speak to Meghan via the British tabloid press (because, for obvious reasons, they're not on speaking or even, we assume, texting terms) and suggest some New Year's resolutions for the Duchess of Sussex.

In a lengthy quote via the Daily Star Online, Samantha said:

In case you need a refresher, Meghan and her dad, Thomas Markle, have been on shaky ground since her wedding to Prince Harry in May, when news broke that the 73-year-old had worked with a paparazzo to stage and sell pictures of himself preparing to travel to the UK for the big day. Since then, Meghan's family (on her dad's side, at least—her mother, Doria Ragland, has been nothing but lovely by all accounts) has taken to regularly granting interviews and dragging her in the press.

In a perfect illustration of this, Samantha added one final suggestion for Meghan's resolution list: "And of course I would add to eat more chocolate to sweeten your disposition for the new year."
