For Meghan Markle, it was the straw that broke the camel’s back. Attacked for years by her half-sister, the Duchess of Sussex would have decided to act, tired of the criticism. According to information from the Daily Mail, Prince Harry’s wife took to Twitter to have Samantha Markle’s account closed. What the social network put in place this Monday, March 14, since according to him, she “bypassed a previous ban” by creating a new account after her first was closed. This decision came just days after the publication of a Buzzfeed investigation, in which we learned that Samantha Markle had violently criticized Meghan Markle through the social network. According to the media, she would have disseminated defamatory statements towards her half-sister.
Samantha Markle has allegedly used various Twitter accounts over the past four years to spread virulent messages against her half-sister. In these, she claimed that Meghan Markle had never been pregnant with her two children, Archie and Lilibet, and implied that she had lied about her miscarriage. “I believe the surrogate hasn’t delivered the baby yet. I think proof of delivery of my sister’s womb should be provided if the kids are to have a title and Archie shouldn’t because that I believe that they used a surrogate mother”, she wrote in particular. And to add: “There is no DNA proof that Archie is the son of Prince Harry and, in addition, there is no proof that Archie or Lilibet were born from the womb, this which is a requirement for securities in the UK”.
Meghan Markle: why is her half-sister asking her for $75,000?
This new case is the latest in a long list. At the beginning of March, Samantha Markle announced that she was suing Meghan Markle for defamation after her interview with Oprah Winfrey. “She implied that the complainant had no relationship with her sister Meghan, that they were practically strangers to each other and that the complainant had built a lucrative career selling false stories while knowing nothing of Meghan Markle’s childhood,” the complaint reads. Faced with justice, Samantha Markle claims 75,000 dollars from Prince Harry’s wife, who was quick to respond through her lawyer: “This baseless and absurd trial. It is only the continuation of a disturbing pattern of behavior. We’ll give it the minimum necessary attention, that’s all it deserves.”
