She certainly didn’t hold back.

So, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have made the decision to pull back from the royal family.

And it seems as though Meghan’s half sister, Samantha Markle, has some thoughts.

Speaking on ITV’s This Morning today, she said:

“I am feeling as though it was her decision, because she wasn’t happy with the criticism that was taking place publicly.”

She was asked if she believed that her sister enjoys being part of the family.

“From my perception, as I have seen in the media, I feel and it appeared that she did enjoy it.”

“When there were the ‘Fab Four’ and photographs of her hair blowing in the wind, and her smiling and waving and the contrived British accent.”

“It was all seemingly wonderful then.”

She continued: “When the public started to criticise the expenditures, the protocol being broken, the tune changed.”

Samantha Markle also accused the whole thing of being a PR stunt…

She said: “In my opinion, she is someone else. And, you know, when I saw that, it felt like a PR stunt.

“My first question was: How many coats and pairs of boots were the women at this shelter given, what were the donations like?

“It still is my opinion that public events are helpful and raise awareness, but really people in desperate crisis and situations need help.

“In absence of that, it felt like PR oriented.”
