We’ve known for quite some time that Meghan Markle’s family is awful, but remarkably Prince Harry’s nightmare in-laws keep finding new ways to shock and amuse us.
Generally, it’s Meghan’s horrendous sister, Samantha Markle, leading the charge.
In fact, we can probably safely assume that were it not for Sam’s nefarious influence, Meghan’s father wouldn’t behave quite as repugnantly as he does.
But there are rare moments in life — such as when Bill Cosby goes to prison — in which we’re reminded that there is still some good in the world and justice occasionally prevails.
And the fact that Samantha’s efforts to destroy her sister have thus far fallen flat is one of those things that gives us a shred of faith in humanity.
So far, Samantha has written a tell-all about Meghan that one published; she’s sat for interviews no one watched; she even tried to score an invitation to the royal wedding, to no avail.
But you know the old saying — when all else fails, enter full-on stalker mode.
Yes, according to a statement from her publicist, Rob Cooper, Samantha is headed to London, where she hopes to hunt Meghan down.
“Samantha Markle is coming to the UK,” Cooper’s statement ominously begins.
“After making numerous attempts in private to arrange a one on one meeting with The Duchess of Sussex to discuss their 74-year-old father’s health, Kensington Palace have refused to respond.”
From there, Cooper basically confirms that Sam subscribes to her father’s batsh-t theory that the Royals are holding Meghan hostage and shielding her from vital information about her family.
“I fear Meghan may not be made aware of these discreet attempts and therefore making this public is the only option we have left,” he tweets.
“I currently have Samantha in Europe with just one short flight away.
“This DOESN’T need to be public, we would prefer to keep this private. Samantha is coming to the UK this week, like it or not.”
You almost have to admire the pettiness of posting multiple tweets on a given topic and then claiming you’d prefer to keep the whole thing private.
It’s anyone’s guess how Samantha plans to get in touch with Meghan, but don’t be surprised to see CNN broadcasting live footage of her scaling the palace walls.
Those guards might have to do something other than stand perfectly still and amuse tourists this week.
