How many of you aren’t cool with people just showing up unannounced at your house? It’s the height of rudeness.

One place you really can’t show up without calling first is Kensington Palace. It’s a lesson that Samantha Markle, the half-sister of the new Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle.

Samantha, Meghan’s white 53-year-old relative who is suffering from multiple sclerosis, reportedly tried to pull a surprise visit and ran into Palace security as she planned to confront the newly minted royal.

According to the Mirror, Samantha argued with police before handing over a letter for her sister.

Being pushed in a wheelchair, Markle refused to leave the area and went on to buy souvenirs including masks of Meghan and Harry. The acrimony stems from the ongoing beef over Meghan’s father Thomas not attending the Royal wedding and a number of her half-siblings being left off the guest list – including Samantha.

The elder Markle, who has previously called Meghan “cold” and “fake” had previously given palace officials an ‘ultimatum’ to arrange a meeting between her and the Duchess or else she would show up on the Palace grounds. She showed up and was promptly sent on her way

“She fully hoped they would let her in, but she was turned away,” a source told the Mirror.  “She handed a letter to one of the guards in the hope they would pass it on. It was a sad sight.”

During the same trip, Samantha also did a TV interview with London’s Channel 5 where she apologized to Meghan. She would still have been hurt by not being invited to wedding, but the situation says the shouldn’t have “snowballed”.

“I just think that families can be this way when there’s confusion and when people are hurt,” she said. “So moving forward I apologize and I wish things could be different.”

It was the latest in a line of outbursts from Meghan’s white side of the family. Samantha previously called her sister the “DuchASS” and Prince Harry a “wuss”.

Meghan’s half-brother, Thomas Jr., has also previously demanded for his sister to make amends with their dad and expressed anger at being left off the guest list.
