Meghan Markle’s estranged half-sister has blasted the bride-to-be for “inviting 2000 complete strangers to the Royal wedding and not her family.” Samantha Grant unleashed a furious rant claiming that none of the Markle family have been invited to the big day and criticised the couple for showing a lack of “respect”.
Prince Harry and his fiancee have decided to invite an additional 1200 members of the public to celebrate the event in the grounds of Windsor Castle on May 19.
But the Palace announced on Wednesday that world leaders and politicians would not be included on the list of those attending the wedding.
And Ms Grant has now suggested that her family, including her and Ms Markle’s father Thomas also did not make the cut.
Ms Grant wrote a post on Wednesday saying: “The Markle family is looking forward to our wedding invites. No-one has one yet. Still waiting. I hope London is wheelchair friendly. Excited!”
Samantha, who lives in Florida, USA, vented her fury on Twitter.
She tweeted: “Out of respect and humanitarianism, the Markles should be invited if 2,000 complete strangers are.
“Our uncle, brother, me, best friend of 30 years, nephews. Our issue is not a matter of closeness. Family is family.”
Prince Harry’s fiancée is still close to her dad Thomas Markle, even though the 73-year-old lives a quiet life near Rosarito in Mexico.
It’s not yet known if he’ll walk his daughter down the aisle.
On the same day Ms Grant, who uses a wheelchair after being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, changed her picture to a couple of photos of her and the former Suits actress from when they grew up together.
