Meghan Markle’s sister’s fury after 2,000 ‘complete strangers’ invited to royal wedding

Meghan Markle’s sister has hit out at the royal bride-to-be and Prince Harry for inviting thousands of “complete strangers” to the royal wedding and accused the US actress of shunning her own family.

 

Prince Harry and Meghan have invited around 2,500 members of the public to their big day alongside 600 guests for the ceremony at Windsor Castle on May 19.

But Samantha Grant, 52, has blasted her half sister for inviting “no one” from her own family.

Venting on Twitter, she wrote: “Out of respect and humanitarianism, the Markles should be invited if 2,000 complete strangers are.

“Our uncle, brother, me, best friend of 30 years, nephews. At issue is not a matter of closeness. Family is family.”

Earlier in the day Ms Grant had changed her Twitter display picture to one of her and Meghan, and tweeted: “The Markle family is looking forward to our wedding invites. No-one has one yet.

“Still waiting. I hope London is wheelchair friendly. Excited!”

Meghan’s mum Doria is expected to attend the wedding. Harry said she was “amazing” in their engagement TV interview, and she joined the couple at the Invictus Games.

The Suits star is said to be close to her father Thomas, who lives in Mexico, but it is unclear whether he will attend and walk his daughter down the aisle.

Kensington Palace announced that 2,500 members of the public will be invited to stand in the grounds of Windsor Palace on the day.

600 people will be invited to the ceremony, with 200 of those invited to the day expected to attend the exclusive evening celebrations at Frogmore House.

According to Kensington Palace there will be no official UK or overseas guests at the wedding.

Harry and Meghan have decided not to invite any political leaders to their nuptials which means even British Prime Minister Theresa May will not attend the wedding.

Sources suggest as Prince Harry is not a direct heir to the throne there is no need for such formalities as inviting world leaders.

The invitations read: “His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales K.G., K.T. requests the pleasure of the company of …… at the Marriage of His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales with Ms Meghan Markle at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle on Saturday 19th May 2018 at 12 Noon followed by a reception at Windsor Castle.”

Ms Grant has been the most vocal member of the Markle family, frequently speaking out about her half-sister in the press, and it is believed she is writing a tell-all book about Meghan.

In a TLC documentary, Ms Grant claimed she never smeared her sister in the press.

She added: “I was quoted as calling her Princess Pushy. I never said those words,.

“The truth is, I never said any such thing and there’s no tape, no recording, nothing in the world that anybody could present to suggest that it was.”

In the past, Ms Grant claimed to have raised Meghan for 12 years when she was growing up in California.

But other sources say the pair had little to do with one another – and were raised completely separately.
