'So Many Lies'

 From Fox News:

Weeks after Prince Harry's highly-anticipated memoir "Spare" hit bookshelves globally, his wife's half-sister, Samantha Markle, is speaking out about what she claims are lies perpetuated by the royal couple. 

"It's been a weird journey for me, seeing the media try to create a disconnect between-- you know, this rift between a normal family, that was never really a rift until fake news came along," Samantha Markle said on Fox Nation's "Tucker Carlson Today."

"[Meghan] is, contrary to rumors, she's not my-- I'm not her stepsister. I'm not some disconnected sibling raised somewhere else, and then brought together later in life. We pretty much grew up as a normal family. My brother and I were older siblings. When she was born, she was brought home from the hospital to our house."

 Much of the drama surrounding the Markle family dates back to 2018. In April, Samantha and her brother, Thomas Markle Jr. revealed they were "baffled" when the royal couple snubbed them from the wedding guest list.

"At issue is not a matter of closeness as more than 1000 complete strangers are invited. Family is family," [Samantha Markle] tweeted after learning her sister was leaving her family out of the event. "I have an uncle I have only seen once but I would never say he is not family because we are not close. Humanitarians move forward with love and kindness especially to Family."

She added, "Smoke and mirrors cannot hide the elephant in the room. Out of respect, tradition, and humanitarianism, the #Markles should be invited if 2000 complete strangers are invited. Our uncle who got her the internship, brother, me, best friend of 30 years Nikki Priddy, nephews. Fact."

The Twitter account she'd used at the time has since been taken down. (Read more.)
