MEGHAN Markle remains out of contact with her aunt nearly three months after her uncle died of heart failure, it is reported.
Joseph ‘JJ’ Johnson died on August 27 at the age of 72 – but his widow Pam said she received no condolences from Meghan.
Pam said the former Suits actress, 40, hasn’t spoken to her or her uncle since December 2017, when he shared photos of her with the press, including one Meghan’s previous photo when she was a five-year-old bridesmaid.
68 years old told Mirror: “We have no condolences from Meghan.
“I know that Meghan knew about his passing because her mother, Doria, knew. And she certainly told Meghan. There’s no way Meghan doesn’t know.
“Some of my family members are upset because she hasn’t communicated with each other.”
Pam says Joseph would “love to be reconciled” with Meghan before he dies – and she remains hopeful that Meghan will reach out now.
She said: “I understand that with her royal status, Meghan has a lot of work to do. But it’s still heartbreaking not to hear from her.”
Joseph used to spend time with Meghan when she was young, and his mother Jeanette – Meghan’s paternal grandmother – helped raise her while Doria was busy working.
But Pam, who lives in Fresno, California, said the pair were not invited to Meghan and Prince Harry’s £32 million wedding in 2018.
She said: “I don’t know why she is angry about releasing such beautiful pictures, showing so many families.
“I think it’s time to forgive – if there’s anything to forgive.”
Three days after Meghan appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres talk show in the US.
In an hour-long interview, she touted her children’s book The Bench and she also took part in funny jokes – including suck milk from baby’s cup in a market.
Family tensions have grown with Meghan and Harry’s decision to step back from the Royal Family, their move to the United States, and their gripping interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Harry and Meghan’s conversation with Oprah sent shockwaves through the Royal Family when it aired in March of this year.
The couple have made a series of bombshell allegations, including claims that an unnamed royal had expressed concern about baby Archie’s skin color.
Meghan also claimed Buckingham Palace refused to support her mental health, while Harry said Prince Charles stopped taking his calls after Megxit.
Meghan’s Dad, Thomas Markle, has also not spoken to his daughter since the day before her wedding when he withdrew from attending the ceremony after suffering a heart attack.
A 77-year-old retired lighting engineer in Hollywood and his daughter have been estranged for allegedly staging the photos in exchange for cash.
Meghan’s father never met his son-in-law and he was not invited to Archie’s christening at Windsor Castle.
Thomas also claimed that it was “unfortunate” that the Duke of Sussex’s relationship with his father had deteriorated.
In an interview with 60 Minutes, Thomas compared himself to Charles and suggested that they were both “ghosted” by Harry and Meghan.
In another interview, he said son-in-law has “abandoned”.
Back in June, he revealed that he no more his daughter’s number and labeled her daughter a “liar”, claiming she had “changed” since meeting Prince Harry.
The Sun has reached out to Harry and Meghan’s representatives for comment.
