Meghan Markle's birthday turns sour after sister Samantha lashes out at Duchess in vicious post
Samantha Markle is at her antics again, and this time her attacks have come on her half-sister Meghan Markle's birthday
Samantha Markle is at it again, and this time on her half-sister Meghan Markle's 37th birthday. In a new vitriolic tweet, Samantha asked the Duchess of Sussex to send a belated birthday card to her estranged father Thomas Markle since he turned 74 in Meghan's absence, reports The Sun.
In the vile tweet, Samantha wrote, "Happy Birthday Meg! It would be so lovely and appropriate of you to send DAD a BELATED birthday card for his July 18 th [birthday cake emoji] @KensingtonRoyal Cheers".
Samantha's vicious tweet comes only a day after she called the Duchess Cruella De Vil in another Twitter rant. She reportedly shared an article about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex shying away from the media eye by saying, "OK so Cruella de Vil is retreating LOL. Let me know how that works out for you." She later cryptically added: "There are smoke and mirrors you try to hide things with, but you can’t hide from what you see in the mirror."
Samantha's tweet comes after it was recently reported that Prince Harry and Meghan have decided to issue their own rule, which would be applicable to all close friends and family of the couple. As per reports, the royal couple is slowly retreating from the spotlight in order to protect themselves from the constant press vigilance.
“They (Meghan and Harry) spend a lot of time in the Cotswolds, more than people realize. They are in the country way more than they are in London and they are enjoying a low-key and very domesticated start to married life,” says one of their friends. “Harry’s not around that much anymore. Meghan likes him to keep his diary clear at the weekends so they can be together in the countryside,” they added.
“It’s very clear they want to be private and left alone,” said one local. “The property is in the middle of woodland, and you wouldn’t know it was there. It is very remote which is why they like it. It’s like a fortress. There’s a huge security presence, you can’t get close.”
Citing the same source, it was hinted that Prince Harry is trying his best to shield Meghan from too much exposure to the media. "He worries there is too much hysteria around Meghan and he wants to row back a bit," said the source. “Royal rota journalists are being kept further away from [Meghan] than we were before the wedding. That means we can’t hear what she is saying. If you can’t get direct quotes from members of the royal family that often makes for dull stories. You go up afterward and ask what she said.”
And in a bid to achieve ultimate privacy, the royal couple has told their friends to avoid speaking to the media, and the decision has let to the Prince clamping down on his friendship group, even telling his wife to follow suit. "They both expect a code of silence. If you talk to the press you’re out," the source revealed. "Harry didn’t use to care that much about what was written (in the press), he just said it was a load of sh**, but he’s very protective of Meghan and defensive these days."
