Meghan Markle's half-sister Samantha has spoken about the recent documentary, Harry & Meghan: An African Journey in which the Duke and Duchess of Sussex gave honest and open interviews about everything from Harry's rumoured feud with Prince William to Meghan's struggle dealing with the pressure of being a newlywed and new mum under constant scrutiny from the media.

However, it hasn't gone down well with Meghan's estranged sister. Samantha recently gave an interview in which she said that she couldn't believe the Duchess would have the 'audacity' to say she hasn't been asked if she is okay, claiming that she hasn't asked their father, Thomas Markle, how he is doing despite various health issues.

She told US news organisation Inside Edition: 'I thought: "Wow, did you ever ask dad if he was okay during two heart attacks?"'

She added: '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 Meghan's experience with critics and negative press, Samantha said: 'She knew exactly what she was doing, so hey, you got what you wanted.'

It isn't the first time that Samantha has spoken out against her half-sister. She issued a stark warning to Meghan about seeing Anne Boleyn in the ‘tower’, slammed her for ‘excluding’ their father from her life, and made snide remarks about Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland.

However, when pressed about her comments and whether or not she was being intentionally nasty, she simply said: 'Telling the truth is not being mean.'

She also spoke about Meghan and Harry's son, Archie Harrison, adding: 'He is adorable. He looks like Harry.'

Harry and Meghan have not responded to the comments.
