Meghan Markle's half-sister Samantha 'turned away' by Kensington Palace security after arriving uninvited
Instead of getting to see Meghan, Samantha was met with absolute silence from her - that too after a rather embarrassing standoff with the palace security.
After months of their dramatic tryst, Samantha Markle - known as the extremely outspoken sister of the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle - has apparently been turned away from the Duchess' doorstep after arriving to visit her unannounced. The 53-year-old reportedly flew over to the UK to confront her half-sister, but sadly, things didn't work in her favor. Instead of getting to see Meghan, Samantha was met with absolute silence from her - that too after a rather embarrassing standoff with the palace security.
Samantha Markle is coming to the UK. After making numerous attempts in private to arrange a one on one meeting with The Duchess of Sussex to discuss their 74 year old father’s health, Kensington Palace have refused to respond.

By the end of her futile visit, Samantha ended up handing over a note to Kensington Palace security before proceeding to buy royal merchandise. Bizarre photos from her wandering about show her clutching a Prince Harry mask that she seemed to have bought from a souvenir shop, after refusing to leave the area. As per The Mirror's reports, Samantha flew in exactly weeks after the palace officials received a letter stating that her behavior would only 'escalate' if a meeting between her and the Duchess wasn't arranged.

Being the latest in a string of public feuds that Meghan's half-sister, and father, Thomas Markle, has been engaged in with the Royal family, a source also reported to The Mirror that the fact that Samantha was turned away 'speaks volumes'. The source said: "The ongoing feud between Meghan, her sister, and her father has so far been played out in public interviews and communication across the Atlantic via aides and representatives. This was a huge move on the part of Meghan's sister to try to see her face to face and the fact she was turned away speaks volumes. This is the closest Meghan has come physically to that side of her family since she married into the royal family but palace staff had clearly been instructed not to allow her access."
This is the closest that Samantha - despite being pushed around on a wheelchair, by her partner - has managed to get to Harry and Meghan since their ever so lavish Royal wedding back in the month of May this year. But sadly, this isn't going to prove to be beneficial for her. As reported earlier, the timeline of the Markles' embarrassing moves towards the Royal family is just going to amplify the negative sentiments of the Royals towards them, presumably. As of now, their silence is most likely to worry the palace in regards to what the Markles' next move will be.
Back in May, Meghan's father, Thomas, had managed to spark excessive media attention after he got exposed for selling pictures to the paparazzi right ahead of the royal wedding - following which he went on a tell-all interview with British TV. In an interview with Good Morning America, the 74-year-old revealed details of private conversations between himself and Meghan, and her husband, Harry, claiming that he felt 'frozen out.' Later on, Samantha herself lashed out at the royal couple, calling her 37-year-old half sister 'cold' for ignoring their father. She also dubbed her 'Duchass' and her husband, Harry, a 'wuss.' There had been further mocking comments from Samantha as well.
