Meghan Markle’s sister Samantha took a swipe at the Sussexes’ Netflix trailer, saying they do not have the same understanding of what it means to protect one’s family. While Prince Harry claimed in the trailer he did everything in his power to look after his family, Samantha said the couple has done the exact opposite. She added the move may be the straw that broke the camel’s back in the already-strained relationship between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and the Royal Family.

Samatha Markle told GB News: “First of all, we’re in this era of totally contrary definitions. You know, so many things seem to be completely opposite of what they really are. We’re redefining everything. 

“I think the jaw-dropper for me was Harry saying that he had to do everything he could to protect his family and when I got out the dictionary, I couldn’t find the way they treated the Royal Family or our family anywhere in the dictionary under protection. 

“I thought: ‘what is he talking about?’ This is not protection. If we’re watching a series over here, what we’re seeing is a series of attacks one after the other.

“And it seems irreparable. When you contrast it with what’s going on in reality, it makes no sense whatsoever.”

Samantha Markle added: “So, the touchy-feely Netflix clip was a very bad slice-of-life commercial. It is the most atrocious decoy in my opinion. It’s quite sad.”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle released an emotionally-charged trailer for their forthcoming Netflix documentary in a move that has sent shockwaves throughout the Royal Family and beyond. 

In the 1 min and 12-second teaser, the Sussexes shared never-seen-before intimate pictures, some showing the Duchess apparently crying with one scene showing Harry with his head tilted back as his wife appears to wipe away her tears with both hands.

An unseen Netflix producer asked: “Why did you want to make this documentary?” as a montage of black and white photographs flashes up.

The trailer comes as Meghan and her sister remain engaged in a judicial battle over claims the Duchess made during her 2021 tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.

During the interview, the California native said: “I grieve a lot. I mean, I’ve lost my father. I lost a baby. I nearly lost my name. I mean, there’s the loss of identity.”

Samantha, who has previously been outspoken about Meghan’s conduct throughout her royal tenure, claimed in her March 2022 lawsuit that her younger sibling was not being honest when discussing her past or their father, Thomas Markle.

In court documents obtained by Us Weekly at the time, Samantha alleged that Meghan made up stories about growing up in “virtual poverty”.

Meghan appeared to ignore her sister during her CBS interview, saying: “I grew up as an only child, which everyone who grew up around me knows, and I wished I had siblings. I would have loved to have had siblings”, noting that she had not seen her half-sister in “at least 18, 19 years.”

The release of the Netflix trailer has also left royal commentators warning the Sussexes have put themselves at odds with Kate and Prince William. 

The Waleses are shedding light on environmental causes in Boston during their visit for the Earthshot Prize ceremony on Friday. On their last day in the US, the Princess of Wales will be spending time at Harvard University while Prince William will visit the John F Kennedy Presidential Library, where President Biden will formally greet him.

The day will culminate with the star-studded Earthshot ceremony, where five winners will win prizes of £1m to help further their work tackling the climate crisis.
