Meghan Markle's sister Samantha blasts the bride-to-be for trying to stop her from speaking about her family
Samantha's latest comments come after it was reported by media outlets that Meghan was getting extremely upset over the string of interviews from her family
We are all aware of how much Thomas Markle loves chatting up with his friends at TMZ, and it seems that the apple doesn't really fall that far from the free.
Meghan Markle's half-sister Samantha Markle, who has previously spoken out loud about her grievances with the royal wedding, has struck again and called her sister "out of her league."

The clap back from Samantha came when it was reported by multiple media outlets that the royal bride-to-be was getting extremely upset over the string of interviews her family members have been giving to the paparazzi, instead of respecting her privacy.
"If it's about my life or my father's, there's something in this country known as freedom of speech. She doesn't have a copyright on that," Samantha said during an interview with TMZ. "She's way out of her league to tell me that I can't speak."

Although Meghan not wanting her family to talk to the media is not really an unreasonable request, her half-sister doesn't seem to see it that way.
As a matter of fact, Samantha mused that Meghan is "not going to tell me I can't speak about my life or my father's where it's a matter of public self-defense because the media is disparaging us. I'm not going to take it, she's not qualified to suggest that I don't."
Meghan's father's side of the family hasn't really been that cooperating throughout, right from the time she got engaged to Prince Harry until the last few days till her wedding. Just a few days ago, it was revealed that her father, Thomas Markle, planted fake paparazzi pictures of him getting ready to walk his daughter down the aisle at the royal wedding.
The whole thing was a huge mess, especially with all the CCTV footage which clearly circled out Thomas' guilt for the entire world to see.
And later, maybe in a bid to save her father some embarrassment, Samantha went on Twitter and in a now-deleted tweet, explained that it was all her idea in the first place to get their father get clicked by a celebrity photographer.
In her tweet, she said, "The bad press over my fathers doing staged photos is my fault. The media was unfairly making him look so bad so I suggested he do positive photos for his benefit and the benefit of the royal family. We had no idea he would be taken advantage of. It was not for money @KensingtonRoyal."
Even Meghan's her half-brother Thomas Jr. came forward and said that their father is "deeply embarrassed" about the entire issue.

Apart from her troublesome half-sister, Meghan and Harry have received some disturbing comments from the Markle family, and Thomas Jr. had even written an 'open letter' to Prince Harry some time ago asking him to change his mind about marrying Meghan.
The 51-year-old shared his letter with InTouch magazine, where he wrote: "As more time passes to your royal wedding, it became very clear that this is the biggest mistake in royal wedding history. Meghan Markle is obviously not the right woman for you."
In the letter, apart from calling out Meghan to be a "jaded, shallow, conceited woman that will make a joke of you and the royal family heritage," he went on to give some brotherly advice to Prince Harry, saying "it's not too late" to call off the upcoming royal wedding.
