Meghan Markle’s half-sister has branded her and Prince Harry ‘selfish’ and ‘cruel’ and ‘disgusting’ in a tirade against the royal couple.
Samantha Markle, 55, ranted against the idea of the couple moving to California and stepping down as senior members of the royal family amid the coronavirus crisis.
‘They can throw stones all they want but they are the biggest hypocrites out there now,’ she said.
‘It’s a devastating pandemic, the idea of abandoning both families without so much of a phone call is just shocking.
‘And now to abandon the British people and Royal family at such a critical time it is almost, it takes me back to the Colosseum in Roman times, it just seems so horribly cruel.’

Her comments came after Harry and Meghan agreed to pay for the cost of their security in the US personally – which could cost them £4million a year.
A spokesman for the couple confirmed they had decided to fund the cost of their protection out of their own pockets after stepping down as senior working royals.
Their security personnel will reportedly consist of former SAS soldiers at a cost of £400 per operative per day.
The couple confirmed they would meet the cost after President Trump insisted the US taxpayer would not pay, a sentiment Samantha fully supports.
Samantha added: ‘The US people should not pay for their security. Harry and Meghan don’t seem to care about families or people around them. Their self-preservation is quite disgusting.

‘I totally support President Trump, he is remarkable under these circumstances.’
Harry, 35, and Meghan, 38, officially stepped down as senior working royals yesterday, and are said to have viewed a $20million mansion in the star-studded area of Malibu as they look to set up a permanent home in the US following Megxit.
The Sussexes want to be close to ‘their new team of Hollywood agents and PRs’ as well as Meghan’s friends and mother Doria, a source told The Sun. They are now believed to be in lockdown in the Hollywood area with ten-month-old baby Archie.
The source added that Archie, now 10 months, is ‘super smart’ and ‘is a strong baby’. Meghan and Harry are pictured in their first picture with Archie in May last year
Speaking to Us Weekly, an insider claimed the couple will be trying for a sibling for Archie soon, but want to give their firstborn as much attention as possible.
They told the publication: ‘They’re still enjoying these precious early days with him. They’re committed to having another baby, but don’t want to put too much pressure on the situation.’
The source added that Archie, now 10 months, is ‘super smart’ and ‘is a strong baby’.
They are also believed to be building a £3 million UK ‘bolthole’ near their favourite private members’ club Soho Farmhouse in Oxfordshire.
The area has special significance to the couple as they enjoyed romantic getaways to the £725-a-night club – often called ‘Butlins for toffs’ – at the beginning of their relationship.
Meghan held her two-night hen do there in 2018 where she enjoyed social media-free time with her closest friends.
