Meghan Markle’s half-sister Samantha attacked both her Royal sibling and the Duchess of Sussex’s mother Doria Ragland, only days after publicly apologising on British television.
Meghan Markle’s disgruntled half-sister appeared to take a swift U-turn after apologising to the Duchess of Sussex for her confrontational outbursts against her.
The attempt to justify her decision to “speak out” about her Royal sibling soon evolved into an open attack against her mother Doria Ragland.
Writing on Twitter, Samantha said: “The world does not know that our dad raised her most of the time without the input of her mother especially from age 12 through high school and he gave her everything she had and is. She was never raised as an only child. Truth kids! He is amazing and successful and magazines lie.
“Glad you love people you don’t even know. But everything that you think you know from tabloids is a lie. Dad pretty much raised her most of her life on his own and Doria was not around very much.”
Her tirade, which spanned several days and included at least five tweets attacking Doria, culminated in Samantha accusing the Duchess of Cambridge of “ghosting” her family and her best friend Ninaki Priddy.
Ms Priddy met Meghan when they began attending Little Res School House in Hollywood aged two and served as maid of honour to her first wedding to producer Trevor Engelson in 2011.
Samantha continued: “Doria might be her best friend now because she ghosted her best friend of 30 years. Nikki Priddy.
“And FYI she was very much born in our house ..Doria moved in with us when I was 14. Meg was born when I was 15. Normal family with baby and teenage siblings. I was not merely with her for ‘two weeks’, for all of you who like to create a separation, you are way off.”

Speaking on Jeremy Vine on 5, Ms Markle said she has travelled to the UK to end her feud with Meghan after she was not invited to her wedding to Prince Harry in May.
Ms Markle said: “I’m hoping that we can have a happy ending.”
Despite the ongoing clash with her half-sister, Meghan paid tribute to her mum during her first official visit to Sussex with Prince Harry.
As a crowd member asked the Duchess to tell Doria she loved her, Meghan quickly agreed adding: “Oh I will. We have that [love] in common, don’t we!”
Epitomising the close relationship between Meghan and her mum, the Duchess had Doria accompany her to Grenfell Tower for the launch of the charity cookbook she championed.
Although guests would have known who she was, Doria still felt the need to introduce herself – in an adorable way.
Meghan’s cookbook was her first solo endeavour since she married Prince Harry and became the Duchess of Sussex.
Meghan has been the driving force behind the book, suggesting the idea to a group of women who came together to cook at a Muslim cultural centre in North Kensington in the aftermath of the Grenfell blaze.
