And it didn’t go very well

Meghan Markle has had a difficult time since becoming a Duchess, with her father’s family, the Markles, making headlines, from estranged nephew Tyler Dooley naming his cannabis business after her to her father Thomas Markle colluding with paparazzi.

The most noise however has come from Meghan’s estranged half-sister Samantha Markle, who it seems has never missed an opportunity to bash the former Suits actress, even claiming that when their father died, it would be Meghan’s fault.

Despite Meghan opting against publicly replying - even after her half-sister’s dramatic apology last week- Samantha doesn’t seem to have got the hint.

In fact, earlier this week, the 53-year-old is reported to have turned up to Kensington Palace unannounced - something which unsurprisingly didn’t go down well.

According to The Mirror, Samantha Markle turned up to Kensington Palace to see her estranged half-sister, but was denied entrance by security.

So what did Samantha do? Retreat gracefully and contact Meghan privately and genuinely? No. Instead Samantha handed a letter for Meghan over to the security team (in front of the paparazzi) and then went to the gift shop to browse souvenirs with Meghan’s face on.

Whatever next?
