When fame hits, people start coming out of the woodwork, which is exactly what’s happening with Prince Harry‘s new girlfriend Meghan Markle. While the two have managed to keep their relationship private for the last few months, the cat is finally out of the bag, and now Markle is being publicly bashed by her half-sister Samantha Grant. Because what other way is there to get attention off the back of your famous siblings?
According to the Daily Mail, Grant is accusing the 35-year-old divorcee of failing to support her family after separating from her husband, and that if Harry knew the truth, he would be “appalled by what she’s done.” She also said that Markle has always wanted to be a princess and that she’s “narcissistic and selfish.”
“The Royal Family would be appalled by what she’s done to her own family,” she said. “The truth would kill her relationship with Prince Harry, he wouldn’t want to date her anymore because it puts her in a bad public light. I certainly don’t think Harry or his family would want to associate with her afterward.”
The two women share the same father, Thomas Markle, whom reportedly declared bankruptcy just a few weeks ago. After being one of the most successful lighting directors in Hollywood, Thomas filed for bankruptcy with debts of $30,000 and has since moved to Mexico without leaving an address or phone number. Meghan’s mother Doria also declared bankruptcy several years ago with credit card debts of $52,750. However, this was completely separate; the couple divorced when Meghan was only six years old.
According to Radar Online, Grant and her father have both been hurt by Meghan’s “lack of emotional and financial support” since she’s hit stardom. “Hollywood has changed her. I think her ambition is to become a princess,” she recently told The Sun. “It was something she dreamed of as a girl when we watched the royals on TV. She always preferred Harry — she has a soft spot for gingers.”
But the hate hasn’t stopped Meghan from celebrating her new relationship with the press. “My cup runneth over and I’m the luckiest girl in the world,” she told the Toronto Sun in her first interview since the relationship went public. According to sources, the couple is the “real deal” and Prince Harry is “head over heels and she feels the same way.”
