"Well, I love it," she began in a lengthy statement to the Daily Mail. "Family is family. What I think is incredible is that it’s a great moment historically and although the adults have a lot of water under the bridge, I would really like to see everyone reach out. We’ve extended the olive branch and now it is Meghan’s turn.
“We’re all welcoming the baby — Markles, Raglands, Sussexes, Windsors," her statement continued. "In terms of the gene pool, we’ve all made a contribution to this wonderful little boy who will probably grow up to be an exceptional man and we’d like to treat this as if we’re all a big family. It would be nice not to react to what we’ve heard in the news but to personally meet him and let him judge us for himself.”
Samantha continued: "I want him to know he’s got a big family and he’s part of an amazing historical time and we’re excited for him," she continued. "We’re excited for Meg and Harry — I am really excited for her. I love her, she’s my baby sister and it doesn’t matter what we’ve all said back and forth but she’s got to do the right thing. I just want to say Meg, you’ve got a world here and family here [in the U.S.] that’s excited for you."
