According to Meghan Markle’s half-sister, Samantha Grant, Meghan was treated poorly at Pippa Middleton’s wedding on May 20, 2017, at Englefield Estate in Berkshire, England. In an interview with Radar Online, Samantha discussed how her half sister was treated, even stating that Princess Diana would be “appalled” at the situation.
According to Samantha, Meghan was kept out of the church service and only appeared at the reception. Everyone was included in the wedding party, including James Middleton and his girlfriend, TV personality Donna Air. But Markle was kept away from all this.
In an exclusive interview with Radar Online, Samantha did not leave any detail out about how her half sister was treated this past week stating “for the royal family to exclude her from the wedding is in very poor taste.”
“To ignore Meghan at the ceremony and for photographs is pure snobbery. She should have been there. She’s classy, and her dress was designed as a one-off,” Samantha went on to say in defense of her sister.
Samantha went on to say that the late princess would never have treated her son’s girlfriend so poorly like the situation that occurred at the wedding.
“Diana would be appalled to see how Harry’s true love was treated,” Samantha stated about the whole matter.
Samantha clearly wanted to stand up for her sister and tell the world that what happened was not right and was no way to treat someone.
Samantha’s sudden release of emotion comes just a few months after it was disclosed that she was writing a tell-all book about her sister.
Samantha was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2008 and is currently in a wheelchair because of her condition.
Samantha and her sister have not always seen eye-to-eye. Although Samantha’s defense shows that maybe she cares for her half sister, her intentions are slightly questionable.
The media can’t seem to get enough of this couple. Meghan has been dating Prince Harry since 2016. Kensington Palace officially confirmed their relationship among rumors that had been swirling prior to the announcement.
On November 8, 2016, Kensington Palace released a rare statement confirming that the pair was a few months into their relationship.
The statement also revealed a special request from the Prince himself in which he asked the public to stop “abusing and harassing” Markle and her family.
The pair has been spotted in public several times ever since, and the wedding they attended together this past week confirms that they are still going strong.
Markle and Prince Harry might have looked happy when they arrived at the wedding reception together. But according to Markle’s half sister Samantha, it was the exact opposite.
