Meghan Markle’s sister has taken another swipe at the Duchess of Sussex, hinting the Royal has ‘turned her back on her family’.
Samantha Markle took a swipe at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Christmas card, which is a photograph of the couple with their backs to the camera watching fireworks from their wedding day.
The 53-year-old sister of Meghan was not impressed with the candid photograph.

She said: ‘Interesting that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have their backs turned.
‘Is this towards the world or just the Ragland and Markle family? It’s a bit sad. Face the Christmas spirit.’
Prince Harry and Meghan shared the photograph on social media this week, while the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge shared a family photograph featuring George, Charlotte and Louis.
Samantha Markle has launched a series of verbal attacks on her sister since she was not invited to the Royal Wedding earlier this year.
Her father Thomas has not seen his daughter since she tied the knot to Prince Harry and was expected to walk her down the aisle, but pulled out due to ill health.

The only family member of Meghan’s to attend her wedding was her mother Doria Raglan, who is reportedly moving to the UK to help her daughter with the birth of her child with Prince Harry in spring 2019.
Despite rumours of a rift between the couples, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be joined by Prince William and Kate to celebrate the festive day with the Queen in Norfolk.
The news comes amid reports of a significant falling out between Kate and Meghan and a growing strain between the two couples.

Kensington Palace today confirmed the couples would be spending the day at the royal estate but could not confirm where they would spend the remainder of the festive period.
Last month rumours began to surface of a growing tension between Kate and Meghan after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced they were moving out of Kensington Palace to live in Frogmore House in Windsor.
There were also reports of a falling out between Meghan and Kate during Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress fitting before the royal wedding earlier this year.
