Lorraine slams Meghan Markles attention-seeking sister for Duchess lawsuit

Lorraine Kelly has hit out at Meghan Markle's half-sister Samantha for suing the Duchess of Sussex for defamation.

Following Meghan’s highly controversial interview with Oprah Winfrey last year, where she made a series of shock accusations, Samantha, 57, is taking her to court, according to reports.

The outspoken sibling of the royal is claiming Meghan, 40, made “demonstrably false and malicious statements" to "a worldwide audience" in her tell-all interview with Oprah.

Samantha also claimed Meghan "published and disseminated false and malicious statements" about her "in a New York Times best-selling book, Finding Freedom, and in many newspapers and media outlets worldwide”.

When discussing the upcoming case with Daily Mirror’s royal correspondent Russell Myers, Lorraine said: “She obviously wants the money or the attention.

“All you do at the end of the day is make lawyers rich.”

The 62-year-old added: “She’s had her moment, just leave it.

“She should just go away.”

Russell revealed that Samantha “may be facing off against her sister” and that she is “no stranger to the press”.

Among the falsehoods that Samantha is claiming Meghan spun is that she grew up as an only child and her “rags to riches” narrative.

Russell said: “She’s actually going to be suing Meghan in the courts in the United States for $75,000 for defamation saying this was a premeditated campaign to destroy her and her father’s reputation.

“Now, Meghan has just won a huge court case with the Mail on Sunday, very expensive lawyers, I am not sure about locking horns with Meghan at this time.”

The sisters have long had a fractious relationship. Samantha and Meghan share the same dad, Thomas Markle, but Meghan claims the two daughters were never close and barely saw each other – a statement that Smanatha strongly denies.

Meghan recently won a massive court case against the Mail on Sunday after the newspaper published excerpts of a “private letter” she had written to her dad.
