MEGHAN Markle’s half-sister Samantha is undoubtedly one of the most vocal members of the Markle clan.
Samantha spoke to Good Morning Britain about Meghan’s engagement to Prince Harry
What has Samantha Markle said about Meghan?
Samantha first hit out at her famous half-sister after her romance with Prince Harry was revealed.
She says Meghan had always fancied Harry because she was ambitious to become a princess – and had a “soft spot for gingers”.
Samantha said the star of US legal drama Suits is a “social climber” who has barely spoken to her sister since she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2008.
Samantha announced that she would release her memoirs and that her sister should prepare herself for some home truths.
It has been reported by the Daily Star that the working title for Samantha’s book is “The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister”.
Samantha also revealed exclusively to The Sun that she’s planning to star in a reality show which she thinks would make for incredible viewing.

Samantha had changed her tune by October when she appeared on Good Morning Britain to dismiss the rumoured rift – and even described her sister as “lovely”.
Samantha was quick to have her say on Meghan and Prince Harry’s engagement, speaking to Good Morning Britain the day after the announcement was made.
When asked if she had a message for Meghan, Samantha said: “I just want to say I love you, I’m incredibly happy for you. Cheers and to a wonderful life.
“If I had a glass of champagne I would toast, but it’s three in the morning and we don’t drink at three in the morning!”
Speaking from Florida she said: “Well, it is true that I’m writing a book and the title is accurate, what is not true (is) this unbelievable swell that’s been created that it’s some sort of slamming ‘tell-all’.”
During a stint as guest editor of the Today programme, Prince Harry told the show “it’s [the Royal Family] the family I suppose that she’s never had.”
Samantha then wrote on Twitter: “Actually she has a large family who were always there with her and for her.
“No one was estranged, she was just too busy. Meg’s family (our family) is complete with sister, brother, aunts, uncles, cousins and the glue of our family, our amazing completely self-sacrificing father.
“She always had this family, marrying merely extends it.”
Meghan Markle hasn’t seen her half-sister Samantha for years
After Meghan wore a £56,000 designer dress for her engagement photo, Samantha Markle, 53, said: “If you can spend $75,000 on a dress, you can spend $75,000 on your dad.”
Their dad is bankrupt.
However, when speaking of the wedding, she added that she was still hoping for an invitation, despite news about the book.
She said: “It would be pleasing for us to be there and be invited. But it’s entirely her decision.”
She blasted her half-sister on Twitter after claiming to have been snubbed from the wedding while members of the public have been invited.
Samantha tweeted: “Out of respect and humanitarianism, the Markles should be invited if 2,000 complete strangers are.
“Our uncle, brother, me, best friend of 30 years, nephews. Our issue is not a matter of closeness. Family is family.”
She also changed her Twitter pic to the two of them when they were younger.
A week later she turned her attention on the Prince tweeting that he needed to “Man up”.
She said: “It’s time to ‘man up’ @HRHHenryWindsor ‘Shout outs’ about humanitarianism, don’t work when you are allowing Meg to ignore the Markles.
“It is s [sic] contradiction.
“Someone must point out that the ‘Emperor is not wearing any clothes’.”

Taking to Twitter once again, Meghan Markle’s publicity-seeking sister labelled the new royal the “duchess of nonsense” and accused Prince Harry of being a “wuss” for allowing his wife to walk all over him.
In an astonishing social media rant, Samantha also said that Harry should have married Cressida Bonas because “she is much more like Diana.”
She tweeted: “Harry is a wuss to allow the Duchess of Nonense to mistreat everyone who has been close to her, especially her family.”
Samantha also claimed that Meghan’s supposed “embarrassment” of her family is “totally reciprocal” before adding her “fake British accent is also ridiculous.”
Meghan’s sister launched another tirade at Meghan after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited art in London dedicate to Nelson Mandela.
She posted a series of tweets slating Meghan for spending time “paying tribute” to others while “ignoring” their father.

“Act like a humanitarian act like a woman! If our father dies I’m holding you responsible, Meg!”
And she continued her tweets, saying: “Glad you have so much time to gallivant around paying tribute to others while ignoring your own father!
“How cold can you be and look in the mirror ? Harry? I guess I was right.”
Samantha launched another scathing attack on Meghan, comparing her half-sister to Cruella de Vil.
While sharing a story that claimed The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were “taking a step away from the media spotlight”, Samantha wrote:
“OK so Cruella Deville is retreating LOL.
“Let me know how that works out for you.”
Samantha added: “There are smoke and mirrors you try to hide things with, but you can’t hide from what you see in the mirror.”

Most recently, Samantha called Meghan “inhumane”, following an interview given by their father, Thomas.
“There would be no just reason for her not to want him in her life, as he was good enough to use to make her everything she is,” Samantha wrote.
“She should be grateful. Her diplomacy skills suck and are inhumane.
“Freezing people out is the best way of hiding the truth.”

On September 11, Samatha called Meghan a “Duchass” on Twitter and accused her of “fake waves and smiles”.
Then, on September 24, it was revealed that Samantha was on her way to the UK to have a showdown with her half-sister “like it or not”.
Samantha appeared on Jeremy Vine’s Channel 5 show on October 1 to apologise to her half sister – but defended her decision to criticise Meghan and said she wanted to “get a message across from my father”.
Samantha attacked Meghan as a “narcissist” after pals tried to stick up for the pregnant duchess.
Markle, who has regularly used social media to criticise her younger sibling, unleashed a string of tweets trashing claims Meghan had tried reaching out to their dad Thomas Sr.
Five close friends yesterday revealed Meghan, 37, wrote to Thomas Markle after her wedding – which he had missed – in an attempt to rebuild their relationship.
But the former actress was devastated when he responded by asking for a photo shoot with her and did not respond to text messages.
After the story was released, Samantha was quick to react, saying : “This article is total bulls*** there are plenty of text messages and receipts to prove otherwise. Stop the PR crap.”
The American – who said Meghan had “lie-abetes” also shared a message, saying: “When a narcissist has lost control over you, they try to control how others see you.”
She then added: “And if the narcissist is wealthy they pay very expensive PR teams to change the way people see you.”
Samantha Markle said the People article was ‘bulls***’
Samantha Markle said her sister is “jealous” of her sister-in-law Kate Middleton.
According to Samantha, Meghan has been using her designer wardrobe to remain “centre of attention” after constant comparisons between the royal wives’ wardrobes.
In Quest Red’s upcoming documentary Meghan and Harry: A Royal Baby Story, Samantha, who shares dad Thomas Markle with the Duchess of Sussex, hits out at her fashion choices.
The 54-year-old American says: “I believe that there is a jealous streak in Meg, she does like to be the centre of attention and I feel like that is what is going on now.”
According to Samantha, their father Thomas has been left in tears over Meghan’s treatment of him.
And Samantha fears her father’s health could crumble as a result of their fractured relationship.
Speaking to the Sunday Mirror, she said: “I’m worried all this could affect my dad’s health. And it’s terrible that this is happening when Prince Philip is in hospital.
“My dad could die at any time but it doesn’t seem to matter to Meghan. All that seems to matter to her is she gets her way. She’s like a bull in a china shop.”
Samantha added: “The way Meghan has treated my father is horrifying. He’s been on the phone to me in tears. He couldn’t understand it.”
She said the royal family had welcomed her sister in but now “she’s acting like they’re the problem.”
“They shouldn’t be surprised because my father gave Meg everything she has but she treated him exactly the same way,” she added.
But in her bombshell interview with Oprah, Meghan said she “grew up as an only child”, and that the last time she saw Samantha was around 19 years ago.
And speaking about Samantha, Meghan said: “She changed her last name back to Markle. And I think she was in her early 50s at that time, only when I started dating Harry.
“So I think that says enough.”
Was Samantha Markle invited to the Royal Wedding?
Samantha was not invited to the Royal Wedding.
In an interview with Channel Four show Meet The Markles she said: “There are some members of the family who have an air of entitlement about even a wedding invite, I don’t understand why we didn’t get one but I don’t expect or demand one.”
It has previously been reported that Samantha and Meghan have not spoken for the past decade.
