Meghan Markle's half-sister reportedly barred from Kensington Palace after trying to confront duchess at home
Meghan Markle’s half-sister reportedly clashed with security as she turned up at Kensington Palace to see the royal.
Pictures published in Britain’s Mirror newspaper appear to show Samantha Markle arriving uninvited at the home that the Duchess of Sussex shares with Prince Harry — then being turned away by security.
According to the newspaper, Markle, 53, argued with police guards at the palace gate before handing over a letter for her sibling.
Markle reportedly made a trip to the U.K. in order to confront Meghan. With her partner pushing her in a wheelchair, Markle was said to have refused to leave the palace area and went on to buy souvenirs, including masks of the duchess and Prince Harry.
According to the Mirror, Markle had given palace officials an “ultimatum,” saying she would simply show up if they did not arrange a meeting.
“She fully hoped they would let her in, but she was turned away,” a source told the paper. “She handed a letter to one of the guards in the hope they would pass it on. It was a sad sight.”
Markle has since posted a series of tweets about her trip to London, including a reference to her palace visit.
