Samantha Markle thinks sister Meghan’s Christmas card is 'sad', and accuses her of turning back on family
Meghan Markle's half sister Samantha Markle was not impressed by Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Christmas greeting card that showed them with their backs turned to the camera
Looks like Samantha Markle has some strong opinions about her half-sister Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Christmas card photograph. Samantha labeled the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's festive card "a bit sad."
The couple had posted an adorable picture from their wedding day which took place in May and are seen watching fireworks together at their private evening reception. Both Prince Harry and Meghan Markle seem very relaxed in the picture, with their backs to the camera and their arms wrapped tightly around each other. However, Samantha Markle is not impressed and she took to Twitter to share her thoughts on the greeting card.
She took to commenting on the couple's pose and the fact that they had their backs to the camera. She proceeddc to ask them whether they are turning their backs on the world or if they just turning their backs on her family. "Interesting that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have their backs turned. Is this towards the world or just the Ragland and Markle family? It's a bit sad. Face the Christmas spirit," Samantha wrote.
Unlike Samantha, royal fans were delighted to see the picture. The public is no stranger to Samantha's issues with her half-sister Meghan and Prince Harry given that her latest comment follows a series of unpleasant comments which Samantha has made about the royal family since Meghan wed Prince Harry. Samantha and Meghan share the same father, Thomas Markle.
Samantha has also often claimed that Meghan was always Thomas's favorite child and would always get the best presents. A royal biographer Andrew Morton claimed in his book 'Meghan Markle: A Hollywood Princess,' that she would always get exactly what she wanted for Christmas, no matter the cost. Andrew also describes how Samantha "often told the story of the time before Christmas when Meghan was looking at a jewelry catalog and picking out a ring, which Tom Senior promised as a gift."
The book further claimed that Meghan "teased her much older sister by saying that whatever her father bought [her half-sister Samantha], Meghan would receive the most expensive gift as she was the most favored child."
