Royal Family News: Samantha Markle Claps Back at Meghan’s Spill-all Oprah interview
British royal family news reveals that Meghan Markle’s sister Samantha has pushed back on her younger sister’s claims made to Oprah Winfrey about all manner of things, saying, “’the truth was totally ignored and omitted,” while providing photos and documents to disprove each of the Meghan’s claims about her.
She admitted that at this point she has no sympathy for Meghan and asserted she used her, “depression as an excuse for treating people like dishrags.”
In footage from Prince Harry and Meghan’s explosive CBS interview, the pregnant Duchess of Sussex told Oprah that Samantha “doesn’t know”her, claiming she was raised as “’an only child” – but her sister has now insisted that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Royal Family News: Was Meghan Markle an Only Child?
According to Samantha, “I don’t know how she can say I don’t know her and she was an only child. We’ve got photographs over a lifespan of us together. So how can she not know me?’ She dished the truth to Inside Edition, while sharing images of the two women together at different stages throughout their lives – most recently in 2008, just 13 years ago.
And yet when Oprah had asked Meghan about Samantha’s tell-all book, The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister, the Duchess angrily replied, “I think it would be very hard to tell all when you don’t know me.”
Royal Family News: Samantha and Meghan Markle are Sisters
Adding to the confusion, Meghan claimed that she had grown up “an only child” and hadn’t seen her half-sister in nearly two decades. Not so fast Meghan!
Samantha provided photos that show them together throughout the years, including one of them at her college graduation in 2008. Oops.
Royal Family News: Samantha Markle isn’t Buying it
Meghan also accused Samantha of using the surname Markle after she began a thing with Harry. Her insinuation is that Samantha was out to cravenly exploit her sister’s social status for financial gain.
“She changed her last name back to Markle… only when I started dating Harry. So I think that says enough”, she said.
But again, Meghan’s claim was not airtight. Samantha Markle insisted that this claim was wholly inaccurate, and shared further evidence to refute it. “I was a Markle before she was. I thought that was kind of weird that she would say I only changed my name back when she met Harry. Markle has always been my name.”
When asked about her sister’s revelation that she struggled with suicidal thoughts, Samantha said, ‘Depression is not an excuse for treating people like dishrags and disposing of them,’ she said.
