Meghan 'faked it' at Archie's christening, says family

Samantha Markle has yet again hit out at her famous sister, Meghan, on the Duchess of Sussex’s 38th birthday.

The 54-year-old has dredged up photos from her half-sister’s son, Archie Mountbatten Windsor’s, christening, saying the whole thing looked staged.

“For my sister to go into a church knowing what she has done to our father, ignoring him through every holiday, the wedding, two heart attacks the birth and the christening, is disrespectful,” Samantha said, according to the Daily Star.

“Everything about the christening look faked and photoshopped but more at issue is the fact that she has traded an entire family to be royal and shame on her.”

Meghan’s rogue family

Outspoken Samantha, who has taken every opportunity to slam her half-sister since she became a fully-fledged member of the royal family, wasn’t invited to Archie’s christening in July.

She also failed to get an invite to Meghan and Prince Harry’s May 19 wedding in 2018, despite begging her sister numerous times to let her and their 73-year-old dad, Thomas Markle, attend the big day.

Despite not having had any contact with the 38-year-old Duchess of Sussex since 2008, Samantha has called Meghan everything from a ‘pushy princess’ to a ‘social climber’ and ‘delusionally absurd’.

Samantha even showed up at the gates of Kensington Palace just before Meghan’s wedding and was turned away by security.

Stepping up her attacks

Just before Archie’s birth, Samantha claimed that Meghan would ‘fill up’ her home with nannies.

In an interview for new documentary Meghan and Harry: A Royal Baby Story, the 54-year-old did not hold back while predicting her estranged sister’s parenting style.

“How many rooms in Frogmore? I can see them all being filled up with nannies,” she said, adding there would likely be a ‘butting of heads’ between the staff and their mistress.

She did concede that Meghan could potentially ‘learn and grow’ from the hypothetical scenario.

Despite numerous attempts from Samantha to rile her sister up and speak to her through the media, Meghan has remained silent about her personal family matters.
