    Meghan Markle has won the defamation suit filed against her by her half-sister Samantha Markle. A Florida judge dismissed the lawsuit stating that the comments made by the Duchess of Sussex are “not capable of being proved false“.

    Samantha had sued Meghan for spreading “malicious lies” during the infamous 2021 interview with Oprah Winfrey. In it, Meghan was accompanied by Prince Harry, and the two talked in detail about their lives.

    In the lawsuit, Samantha stated that Meghan gave “demonstrably false and malicious statements” to a “worldwide audience”. She also said that her half-sister defamed her to “cover-up” her “false rags to riches” story.

    While ruling out the verdict, the court stated: “As a reasonable listener would understand it, Defendant merely expresses an opinion about her childhood and her relationship with her half-siblings.”

    It further added, “Thus, the Court finds that Defendant’s statement is not objectively verifiable or subject to empirical proof…. Plaintiff cannot plausibly disprove Defendant’s opinion of her own childhood.

    Samantha’s lawyer said that Meghan lied about her education and that she got a scholarship. They said that Meghan’s educational fees were paid by her father. She stated that Meghan continues to deny all the good things her family has done for her. Recently, Meghan and Harry were evicted from the Frogmore Cottage by King Charles III.
