Samantha Markle says it was Prince Harry who started the feud in Meghan's family.

Samantha Markle has once again added fuel to the never-ending fire that is the Markle family’s feud, and this time, she says it’s all Prince Harry’s fault. 

In a new documentary called Meghan And The Markles: A Family At War, she says all the tension started with one comment from the Duke of Sussex.

In 2017, Prince Harry spoke about Meghan’s first Christmas with the royal family, saying “she’s done an amazing job, you know it’s the family I suppose she’s never had.”

“…the family I suppose she’s never had.”

According to Samantha, they’re the words that sparked it all.

“I don’t think Harry has been given the full story,” she said.

“Then we questioned why…why would she be embarrassed about her family? Why would you need to stage that differently?” she told the documentary.

Her comments have shocked royal fans, who can’t believe she’s still… going. With all the family drama.

It’s not the first time Samantha has supposedly “cashed in” on her half-sister’s fame. When Meghan’s engagement was announced, she changed her surname from Grant back to Markle and gave several interviews criticising her.

She even turned up to the gates of Kensington Palace and demanded to be let in - resulting on her being put on the "fixated persons" list by security.

This documentary is the first of two she is set to appear in, and she's earning an estimated $180,000 from them and other press appearances lined up in coming months.

Samantha also claims in the documentary that the letter Meghan sent to her father asking him to stop speaking to the press, wasn't a "plea for privacy" but actually a "strategic and contrived attempt to make herself the victim".

Also on Samantha's long list of criticisms, is her disgust at Meghan not financially supporting their father.

"She doesn't have a heart or she would have been doing everything she could to make him comfortable and reciprocate, and be loving and gracious and make sure he is comfortable in his old age," she said.

And to top it off, Meghan is also apparently stealing all the limelight.

"Maybe in her mind she doesn't want to see us, because she wants to take centre stage," Samantha said.

It's the public feud that just keeps on giving.
