Meghan Markle and her relatives have had a strained relationship since the actress found fame but her sister, Samantha, says any chances of a reunion have been shut down.
Samatha, 56, claims she hasn't spoken to her younger sister since she landed the role of Rachel Zane in the hit US legal drama Suits.
Meanwhile, Meghan's dad, Thomas, hasn't spoken to his daughter since before her wedding to Prince Harry in 2018.
However, Samantha has claimed that the family have tried to reach out to Prince Harry's wife but they have been met with mockery and what she claims to be public attacks.
Speaking exclusively to the Daily Star, Samantha said: "Our family have reached out with an olive branch on several occasions.
"Only to be met with being mocked and attacked by PR as if we had no right to talk, when really, we were saying early on that life is short.
"Now, with everything going on in the world and the possibility of World War Three, life could be short for everybody."
The former actress, who holds an MA in counselling, added: "Why not make things better by taking the first step and being the bigger person and saying 'Gosh, let's just stop this, let's make it right'.
"She could do that and I think as forerunners in the media and in the world, both Harry and Meghan talk about change, well, then do it, don't just talk the talk, walk the walk."
Samantha says the family "got really tired" of being mocked by Meghan's PR after claims the Markles were only interested in her finances.
"She has to apologise, whether the family would accept her olive branch or not, she has to apologise, that's what humanitarians do," added Samantha.
The mum-of-three believes that it would have taken Meghan "five minutes" to reach out and it would have put her in "a favourable public light".
However, Samantha believes that Meghan and Harry cannot make a full return to the UK, explaining: "I can't speak for the British people but from what I've heard, the pulse of the people is not likely.
"Their actions against The Royal Family and the racial mudslinging that took place in the media was so hurtful and egregious that you can't take back the spoken word.
"There are some things that you can, you can forgive but it seems to be an ongoing thing.
"You might be able to forgive but you don't forget and it makes that inability to forget makes things very awkward and they can never be as cosy as they once were."
Daily Star has approached Meghan Markle's representatives for comment.
