For those of you thought the war of words between Meghan Markle and her estranged family would die down after her wedding to Prince Harry in May, you were very wrong.

In the latest instalment of the public stoush between Meghan and her estranged family, the Duchess of Sussex’s half-sister Samantha has unleashed a new Twitter rant that’s taken things to a whole new level.

Fresh from their dad Thomas Markle going public with claims the phone number he was given to call Meghan no longer works, and the royal contact he was assigned has shut down all communication, Samantha claims the stress is getting too much for their dad.

Calling out Meghan’s behaviour on her Twitter account to her followers, Samantha even went so far to claim that if anything was to happen to Thomas – who pulled out of walking the Suits star down the aisle after reportedly suffering a heart attack – the finger of blame would be firmly pointed in her direction.

“How about you pay tribute to your own father?!” Samantha tweeted to her followers.

“Enough is enough. Act like a humanitarian act like a woman! If our father dies I’m holding you responsible, Meg!”

Clearly having a dig at the recent spate of Meghan’s public appearances, with her latest event seeing her pay tribute to Nelson Mandela at an exhibition in London, Samantha has slammed Meghan’s public persona compared to her private one.

“Glad you have so much time to gallivant around paying tribute to others while ignoring your own father!” Samantha tweeted.

“How cold can you be and look in the mirror? Harry? I guess I was right.”

“Act like a humanitarian act like a woman! If our father dies I’m holding you responsible, Meg.”

The 53-year-old’s Twitter outburst comes following shock claims that Thomas Markle actually faked his heart attack in May.

“The whole story about Meghan’s father undergoing heart surgery was made up,’ the source told the Daily Mail.

According to reports at the time, Thomas was admitted to the Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center, however when contacted by the Daily Mail to hospital said ‘no such name’ had ever checked in.

Apparently he wanted to take the attention off the staged paparazzi photos, which had caused much embarrassment for Meghan.

“He had to come up with a good enough reason not to attend her wedding and avoid any further embarrassment after those staged photos went public,” the source continued.

“Don’t feel sorry for him. If anything, feel sorry for Meghan.”
