Meghan Markle’s sister calls her a liar
The family drama continues, this time, over the funding of the Duchess of Sussex’s education.
Looks like Meghan Markle’s half-sister, Samantha Markle, isn’t letting her enjoy her pregnancy – or her first royal tour as a married couple – in peace.
It was just a week ago that Samantha publicly apologised to Meghan and Prince Harry for any “past misunderstandings”. “Everybody just needs to shut the heck up and let this be a great thing for them, for the world, for the family and that's where I'm at," Samantha had said on Daily Mail TV.
"I'm so excited, I'm so happy for you and I really, really am sorry for any of the past tension and confusion and misunderstandings and asinine things I've said when I just didn't understand what was going on, and I wanted things to work out for my dad," she said.
But now, Samantha has accused the royal mum-to-be’s speech given at Fiji’s University of the South Pacific on Wednesday (Oct 24) to be full of lies, reported E! News.
In an excerpt on the entertainment news website, Meghan said: “I am also fully aware of the challenges of being able to afford this level of schooling for many people around the world – myself included. It was through scholarships, financial aid programmes and work-study where my earnings from a job on campus went directly towards my tuition – that I was able to attend university. And, without question, it was worth every effort."
Samantha tweeted on her protected Twitter account: “Our father paid for all of her education! This speech is not true.”
In another tweet, she wrote: "Stop the enabling! Do not ever reward a lie it does not matter how fluffy it is! It is wrong and there is no force on the planet that will take this away from my father. She should inspire women with the truth and with gratitude! Roll (sic) model thankfullness and truth, not lies."
