Meghan Markle’s half-sister slams Mama Doria accusing her of “cashing in” on the royal wedding
Duchess of Sussex formally known as the actress Meghan Markle is still dealing with family drama from her wedding last weekend.
Markle’s half-sister is now slamming her mother, Doria Ragland, accusing her of “cashing in” on the royal wedding, reports Closer Weekly.
Ragland, a yoga instructor, was the only family member from Markle’s family to attend Saturday’s wedding. Markle’s father reportedly underwent heart surgery a few days leading up to the big day.
Rumors are now circulating that media mogul Oprah Winfrey is set to have the first sit down televised interview with Ragland. Winfrey, who was amongst the dozens of stars who attended the wedding, reportedly spent six hours with the Duchess’ mother to prepare for their talk.
Here comes Samantha Markle, the 53-year-old half-sister that keeps resurfacing and who was not invited to the star-studded royal wedding. It seems as if she has decided to take jabs at the family as a result.
Her partner, Mark Phillips told the DailyMail.com that Ragland earned “big money” from the exclusive interview with Winfrey, but declined to give a specific amount.
In a Twitter rant, Samantha Markle wrote, “Even Doria cashed in talking to Oprah and some of the first photos out there only she could have had.”
The sour sister went on to add, “Excuse me but I’m an American citizen with freedom of speech and I don’t take cues. We had a right to defend ourselves and speak out against nasty British media if no one likes it that’s just too bad.”
The older Markle, who suffers from multiple sclerosis, is set to release a tell-all book titled, The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister, which might be adapted into a movie or television series.
Over the past couple months, she has given numerous interviews criticizing her half-sister. The estranged sibling has been accused of attention seeking, especially after recently changing her last name from Grant back to Markle.
