In an interview with TalkRADIO, Meghan Markle’s half-sister, Samantha, said she and the Duchess of Sussex’s father, Thomas Markle, are yet to meet baby Archie in person and do not know if they ever will. But the 56-years old said they have not given up hopes yet on meeting the son of the Duke and the Duchess of Sussex.

She said: “I wouldn’t say that he (Thomas Markle) has given up hope and I certainly haven’t either.

“But Archie has become somewhat of a phantom in the eyes of everybody.

“He must be walking now and he wasn’t present at the memorial.

“No one knows where he is and how Archie really is.”

She added: “We haven’t seen him and I don’t know that we will.” 

The estranged half-sister, however, also urged the Duchess to apologise after releasing – what she called – “inappropriate” photos on Remembrance Sunday.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited the Los Angeles National Cemetery to mark Remembrance Sunday and released photos of the moment.

Meghan and Harry were absent from the annual commemoration at the Cenotaph in London, having begun a new life in California after stepping down as working royals.

The couple laid flowers that Meghan picked from their garden at the gravesites of two Commonwealth soldiers, one who had served in the Royal Australian Air Force and one from the Royal Canadian Artillery.

Ms Markle said: “I think what is most glaring about any Remembrance Day is not only is important to remember those who have sacrificed but as a reminder that life is precious and short and we should certainly pay gratitude.

“Seize the day, seize the moment, apologise and make good with those who are alive who have given us so much because after all, we are finite.

“I only hope that she would wake up to that but that doesn’t seem to be the case.”

Speaking to Meghan’s sister, radio host Dan Wootton asked: “You would call on her to apologise?”

Ms Markle continued: “Absolutely. This has all been horrible and I think it should have been nipped in the bud.

“Any decent person would have, out of kindness and humanity, never allowed it to get this far.”

The royal couple had also placed a wreath at an obelisk in the cemetery that features a plaque inscribed “In Memory of the Men Who Offered Their Lives In Defence Of Their Country”.

Harry signed a message with the wreath saying: “To all of those who have served, and are serving. Thank you.”

Pictures released by the couple includes one of them standing in front of the wreath where Harry has his head bowed.

Harry, who spent 10 years in the armed forces, wore a navy suit with his service medals attached, while Meghan wore a long belted black coat.

A spokesman for the couple said: “It was important to the duke and duchess to be able to personally recognise Remembrance in their own way, to pay tribute to those who have served and to those who gave their lives.”
