Meghan Markle was recently chastised for reportedly having a “unhealthy obsession” with Princess Diana, according to her half-sister Samantha Markle.
Samantha Markle, Meghan Markle’s estranged half-sister, appeared on GB News to remark on the speculations. Dan Wootton, the show’s host, inquired whether Meghan had an obsession on the late Princess Diana.
The estranged half-sibling told GB News: “In several interviews and publications it was made clear that she [Meghan] had gone to ‘Duchess School’.
“She had studied the royals, she had mimicked [Princess] Diana. She had looked at their lives. And so I don’t believe that she was naive and wasn’t unaware of what she was getting into.”
Ms. Markle added, “When this had all started, before the wedding, I looked at that and thought a lot of young girls fantasised about being princesses around the time of Princess Diana’s life.”
“I didn’t really pay attention to it, it wasn’t until much later when I saw all of the photographs, the mimicry of Diana, of the gestures, wearing the same clothes and looking at a lot of evidence that Meghan knew a lot about the royals. She studied their lives and that is apparently where she wanted to be.”
She said: “I think it was a little bit of an obsession for Meghan.
“A healthy one? In my opinion, no.
“I think that is kind of sad, I think it is kind of sad for Harry.
“I always told my friends who were male, if you wanted to see what a woman is made of and what she wants you for, drive up in a broken VW and see if she wants to go out with you anyway.
“But clearly Meghan had her sights on Harry because of who he is.
“That is kind of sad.”
Furthermore, Samantha blasted Meghan for calling her baby Lilibet – the Queen’s childhood nickname. She described it as a “tacky power play.”
She explained: “To use a clearly sentimental name that was associated with the recently deceased Prince Philip – so much sorrow and love there for Her Majesty…
“I just think it slides directly in the face of decency and humanity and kindness to just throw that in their faces and go above and beyond and just take it.
“As if they just want to take that part in history….without her consent or blessing.
“Definitely I feel it was a power play.”
When journalist Dan Wootton questioned Samantha if she loved her half-sister, Ms.Markle broke down and stated, “It’s so hard to love someone who has caused so much pain to so many people.”
“Especially with our dad having two heart attacks and watching her do this to the royals.
“I can’t say I can love somebody who is so unbelievably cruel.”
Meghan Markle turned 40 on Wednesday and had a celebration with her pals at her Los Angeles home with Prince Harry.
