Well, that's embarrassing! 

Meghan Markle’s half-sister Samantha Markle has turned up to Kensington Palace uninvited with the aim of confronting her famous sister.

Photos (which you can see here) show Samantha appearing to have a stand-off with Kensington Palace security. 

She appeared to hand a palace security guard a note for Meghan, before leaving to buy Royal merchandise with her sister and Prince Harry’s faces on it – now, that’s a change of heart!

Samantha’s arrival in the UK comes two weeks after palace officials received a letter saying her behaviour would “escalate” if they didn’t arrange a meeting with Meghan for her.

A source has told The Mirror that the fact Samantha was turned away “speaks volumes”:

“The ongoing feud between Meghan, her sister and her father has so far been played out in public interviews and communication across the Atlantic via aides and ­representatives. 

“This was a huge move on the part of Meghan's sister to try to see her face to face and the fact she was turned away speaks volumes.

“This is the closest Meghan has come physically to that side of her family since she married into the royal family but palace staff had clearly been instructed not to allow her access.”

Samantha first publicly slammed Meghan after her romance with Harry became public knowledge calling her a “social climber” who is “not fit to be a royal”. 

Unsurprisingly, she wasn’t invited to the Royal wedding.
