    Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Named In Samantha Markle’s Defamation Lawsuit

    Samantha Markle‘s defamation lawsuit is gaining traction. She has brought a case against Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Samantha Markle is suing for “defamation and injurious falsehood” claims made against her by the couple in the 2021 interview with Oprah Winfrey.

    It was here when Meghan Markle exposed the behavior of the British family to the public. She has also been open about her struggling relationship with her family, discussing her father, Thomas Markle, and half-sister Samantha Markle on various occasions. But with the defamation case, we wonder if she exaggerated the truth to appear as a victim in the public eye.

    The Markle family drama is gone too far

    Samantha Markle, Meghan’s half-sister, is taking her sister and brother-in-law to court on charges of defamation and falsehood. Following Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s 2021 interview with Oprah Winfrey, Samantha Markle sued them in 2022. 

    Samantha Markle’s 2022 lawsuit claims that her half-sister made “demonstrably false and malicious statements….to a worldwide audience,” including the “roughly 50 million people in 17 countries” who watched the interview.

    Meghan Markle attempted to end these depositions by filing a motion. Judge Charlene Edwards Honeywell dismissed her motion. It was done since Meghan “does not show that unusual circumstances justify the requested stay, or that prejudice or an undue burden will result if the Court does not impose a stay.”

    The sympathy for the Royal outcasts is running out

    Under the lawsuit filed in 2022, Samantha Markle is seeking a $75,000 (£62,000) restitution from the couple. The filing says that Meghan exposed her to “humiliation, shame, and hatred on a worldwide scale” and misrepresented their relationship growing up, giving the impression they were “virtual strangers.”

    Samantha Markle also accused her half-sister of lying and giving the world a false sense of their relationship. According to Samantha, Meghan’s rags-to-riches narrative is a blatant lie. The former ‘Suits‘ actress destroyed her father and half-sister’s “reputation and credibility by claiming childhood hardship.”

    The fallout from Prince Harry’s memoir ‘Spare‘ has been out of control. It has made his relationship with the British royalty more difficult. As the outcast royals continue to fall from grace, this lawsuit might end the support they’ve enjoyed.
