In cold with her father since her marriage to Prince Harry, Meghan Markle does not get along much better with her half-brother and half-sister. But if the first is content to simply throw a few hostilities at it in the media, the second has gone further after having indulged in the same exercise for several years. Samantha Markle has decided to sue the Duchess of Sussex. Explanations: If she seemed on the verge of winning her lawsuit against Associated Newspapers, parent company of the Mail on Sunday, for violating her privacy, the ex-actress was faced with disappointment.
Her former communications secretary Jason Knauf has revealed that she regularly provided private information via email as part of the writing of the Finding Freedom biography. Detail which could therefore work against it. In one of these emails, however, Meghan Markle allegedly made shocking comments about her half-sister, claiming that she “lost custody of her three children from different fathers.” False information that Samantha Markle strongly deplores by prosecuting Prince Harry’s wife for “libel and slander” and “invasion of privacy.” Also note that Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand’s book also reveals that Thomas Markle’s eldest daughter “dropped out of high school” and changed her name from Grant to Markle, selling stories to the press about his famous younger sister, from the beginnings of the Sussex idyll.
Samantha Markle: “it’s horrible”
Samantha Markle herself announced her decision in the columns of the British weekly newspaper The Sunday Times, this Sunday, November 14. “I’m talking to one lawyer in England and another in the United States because there are different statutory windows and different issues.” Meghan Markle’s half-sister is considering prosecution in the UK for “violation of the law on the protection of privacy and data confidentiality”, the legal window for defamation being only one year in across the Channel. Jason Knauf may even be called to testify. “The messages addressed to her are proof that she defamed and slandered me. Everything to keep the family silent (…) It’s horrible”, regrets Samantha Markle. The break is consumed.
