Samantha Markle branded her estranged half-sister Meghan a hypocrite after the duchess lamented that people rarely ask her if she’s okay while she struggles with intense public scrutiny.
Samantha took aim at Meghan after watching the ITV documentary ‘Harry and Meghan: An African Journey’ on Wednesday night, which featured an emotional interview where Meghan fought back tears as she said: ‘Not many people have asked if I’m okay.’
The 54-year-old from Virginia said she couldn’t believe Meghan would have the ‘audacity’ to make such a remark given that she hasn’t checked in on their father, Thomas Markle Sr, through his multiple health scares in recent years.
‘I thought: “Wow, did you ever ask dad if he was okay during two heart attacks?”‘ a incredulous Samantha told Inside Edition.
Samantha also slammed Meghan for complaining about the extensive negative press attention she’s faced since marrying Harry in May 2018.
‘She knew exactly what she was doing, so, hey you got what you wanted,’ she said.
‘I think it is really ludicrous that someone who is escorted around the world by millions of dollars worth of security on private jets as a millionaire could ever complain about anything.’
When asked about criticism she’s faced from people who think she is being unfair to Meghan, Samantha said: ‘Telling the truth is not being mean.’
Samantha did have one nice thing to say about her sister when she was asked about baby Archie.
‘He is adorable. He looks like Harry,’ she said, noting that the documentary was one of the first times she’d gotten to see her nephew.
Samantha hasn’t spoke directly with her half sister in over a decade, but has been one of the duchess’ staunchest critics in the media since Harry and Meghan’s May 2018 wedding.
