The criticisms and scrutiny that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are experiencing are not just coming from the British media, which has repeatedly attacked the couple in the last several weeks. It’s also originating from Markle’s estranged sister, Samantha. Just recently, Samantha Markle spoke with Inside Edition, telling them that the decision by Prince Harry and her sister to move to North America and relinquish their duties as senior members of the royal family was a ‘slap in the face’. Now, Samantha Markle is coming back with more condemnations and harsh words.
Honestly this woman makes me sick, who needs enemies when you have families like this!!! And they wonder why they’re aren’t close🤔 if she’s this nasty about her own sister publicly can you imagine what she’s like privately. This is hate disguised in concerns, #samanthamarkle https://t.co/XCrLelnzuc

When Samantha Markle sat down with Inside Edition to share her displeasure with her sister and Prince Harry, she didn’t mince her words. “It is a slap in the face,” Samantha said to the outlet. “I think what is shocking is the lack of consideration for the people involved, the British royal family, the promises that were originally made to honor royal duties and to lead by example.”
Meghan’s sister even claimed that Markle only had herself to blame for the predicament the royal couple has found themselves in. “They stepped into the spotlight knowing what the duties were, knowing what the media would be like for them,” she said. “If she wanted to be so private, she wouldn’t have sat at Wimbledon with 40 empty seats around her.”
Just wondering if and when #SamanthaMarkle will be done talking about the better sister Meghan… must suck to know you drew the short stick of the gene pool

The words for Meghan would only get more derogatory and aggressive as Samantha Markle sat down for a television interview with ITV according to The Daily Mail. This time around, though, she wasn’t holding back any punches. She spoke of the couple’s decision as a ‘gross breach of duty’. “Prince Harry and Meghan have quite a bit of apologizing to do,” she said. “We aren’t talking about teenagers, we are talking about adults who knew what they were doing and in regards to my father it was so incredibly wrong and shocking.”
The attacks by Samantha continued to become more personal, with Markle even being accused of developing a ‘contrived British accent’.
Shame shame on you #ThisMorning. Is this the best you can do. I can’t believe that @EamonnHolmes is still in a job. This #SamanthaMarkle interview is a absolute joke and part of the media smear campaign.

Samantha Markle also claimed that her sister loved the newfound attention when she first married Prince Harry, but now she doesn’t, providing the impetus for their move to North America.
“From my perception, I feel that she [Meghan] did enjoy it when there was the fab four and the photographs of her hair blowing in the wind and the smiling and the contrived British accent,” she claimed. “But when the public state to criticize the behavior and expenditure the tune changed and it became a bit more attribution error, avoiding accountability, flipping the script, and it’s quite hurtful.”
How is Meghan the embarrassment? The British public should be ashamed. You turned #SamanthaMarkle into a credible celebrity😂😆 I mean, the woman is 17 years older than Meghan, thirsty wannabe TV personality & the Brits made her that over sibling rivalry. 😆🤣😂

As for any racial undertones in the criticisms that Markle claims to have received since she became the Duchess of Sussex, Samantha believes that it’s simply not true and an excuse for why she doesn’t want to be in the United Kingdom anymore.
“I’ve never seen anything that was racist in nature so it seems a misplacement of blame to avoid accountability,” she said. “I just thought it was a gross breach of duty or honour and confidence that was placed on her.”
With Samantha Markle being given lots of attention, it’s likely this won’t be the last time we hear from her, especially as it pertains to criticizing her estranged sister.
