MEGHAN Markle’s half-sister has been told to “shut her mouth” after Samantha Markle lashed out at the Duchess of Sussex once again, urging her to show more gratitude towards their father.
Meghan Markle was the subject of a scathing attack by Samantha, 54, as she prepared to celebrate New Year’s Eve. Just days after it was revealed she was on a police watchlist including people “fixated” on the royal family, she suggested Meghan adopt New Year’s resolutions that would bridge the gap with her estranged father, Thomas Markle Snr. However, as the dust settles on Samantha’s brazen attack, she has been told to “shut her mouth” by royal commentators.
In a plea to the Prince Harry’s wife, Samantha urged Meghan to “thank dad” and to “carry on the family legacy” in 2019.
She told Daily Star Online: “Your New Year’s resolution should be to be honest and pay tribute to those who have helped you the most, such as your dad.
“Thank him for your college education, your career and building every stage you set foot on. Really appreciate the people that care about you.”
In a final cheeky dig, Samantha added: “Of course, I would add to eat more chocolate to sweeten your disposition for the new year.”
However, her comments have not gone down well with royal commentators.
Speaking on their “Royally Obsessed” podcast, writers Kaitlin Menza and Lisa Ryan discussed their highs and lows of the festive period.
Ms Menza revealed that her low was reading about Samantha’s comments, saying: “My low was that Samantha Markle talked to the tabloids and announced her New Year’s resolutions for Meghan Markle.
“Basically it was like ‘be nicer to our dad and remember who paid for your college’.
“The first, second and third are ‘shut your mouth’ and the fourth is ‘leave room for magic’.”
