Meghan Markle is not on speaking terms with the members of the Markle family. She hasn’t spoken to her dad Thomas Markle Sr. and to her half-sister Samantha and half-brother Thomas Markle Jr. However, Samantha has vowed to sue her for defamation.

Meghan Markle sued a U.K. tabloid for publishing an intimate letter addressed to her dad. However, her half-sister wanted to sue her for defamation after the bombshell emails revealed she helped the Finding Freedom authors, Carolyn Durand and Omid Scobie.

Samantha wants to sue Markle for “defamation, libel and slander” and “breach of privacy,” Sunday People reported.

Samantha wasn’t happy after learning that Markle emailed her former aide Jason Knauf with some details about her. In the email, the duchess said Samatha “lost custody of all three of her children from different fathers.”

According to Samantha, she is speaking with a lawyer from England and another from the United States. She opted to speak with different lawyers because the two countries have different statutory windows and different issues.

“I’m looking at suing for defamation in the US. In the UK, I’m looking at a breach of privacy and data privacy act breach because the statutory window for defamation is only one year in the UK,” Samantha said. “Jason Knauf is subpoenable, and the messages to [him] are evidence she was libeling and slandering me. Anything to keep this family quiet was my sister’s motto. It’s horrible.”

Markle apologized to the court and admitted that Knauf provided information to the authors. However, the duchess said she wasn’t aware of the information Knauf shared with them. Also, she didn’t remember the exchanges between her and Knauf at the time. Markle said it wasn’t his intention to mislead the defendant or the court.
