Royal fans have hit out at Meghan Markle's half-sister after she launched a stinging  attack on the bride-to-be saying that she has no right to try and censor her.   

Samantha Markle has given a bombshell interview to US media where she insisted she had 'freedom of speech' and has every right to speak out.

The mother-of-three, who has given a series of meddling media interviews in recent weeks laid into Meghan amid claims she is upset about her airing her views.

But after the astonishing clip emerged royal well-wishers blasted the 53-year-old telling her: 'The world can't wait for you to go away.'

Thomas Markle's daughter by his first marriage has been accused of abusing her connections to Meghan who she hasn't seen for ten years.

Yesterday she waded in to the faked paparazzi photos row as she defended her father when it emerged Mr Markle had staged the shots for money.  

Samantha, 53, told TMZ: 'If its about my life or my father's there is something in this country called freedom of speech.

'She doesn't have a copyright on that and she's not going to tell me that I can't speak about my life or my father's life where its a matter of public self-defence.

'The media is disparaging us. I'm not going to take it.

'She's not qualified to suggest that I don't under any law in this country. 

'This is not Great Britain. I am a United States citizen and that's all there is to it. She's way out of her league to tell me that I can't speak.

'I'm not saying anything about her but if I'm talking about my life or my father's she has to respect it.'

But she was deluged with a barrage of abuse on social media, with one user commenting: 'Wow her attitude sure changed when she was told Meghan wants her to stop talking.

'I don't know why SM cares what the tabloids say..she isn't anybody important. SM actually believes she herself is a celebrity.

'Sorry lady, you're not! The world can't wait for you to go away.'

Another said: 'Samantha Markle really needs to get a grip, everything this woman says just makes her look bitter & jealous.'

And another tweet said: 'Desperate to go to Meghan and Harry’s wedding but wants to disparage them at the same time. Not cool!'   

In the explosive chat Samantha admitted the relationship she has with her half-sister is 'strained' and claimed that Meghan doesn't have a relationship 'with anyone' in the family.

In the interview, which comes just three days before the couple tie the knot at St George's Chapel, Windsor, on Saturday, she also revealed she had bought the couple a 'sentimental' wedding gift adding: 'I would like to give it to her in person, but if not I will certainly send it.'

Samantha first hit out at her famous half sister when the romance was first revealed in 2016. She claimed she had always been attracted to Harry because she was 'ambitious' and wanted to become a princess.

It came a day after she gave an interview to Good Morning Britain where she was accused of being a 'vulture'

She also announced she would release her memoirs and that her sister should be prepared for some uncomfortable revelations.  

She also blasted her sister on Twitter when it appeared she had been snubbed from the wedding, despite members of the public being invited.

She said: '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. Our issue is not a matter of closeness. Family is family.'

Yesterday she gave an interview to Good Morning Britain to speak about Mr Markle pulling out of the wedding because he didn't want to embarrass the royal family following the fake photo row.

She was then accused by host Piers Morgan of being a 'little vulture' and grabbing money by 'trashing' the Suits star.

In an explosive exchange Mr Morgan asked her: 'How much money have you made from trashing Meghan Markle?' to which Samantha replied: 'Not very much'.

Ms Markle said she had encouraged her father to do a deal with paparazzi claiming he had been treated 'shabbily' by the media.

But Piers went on the offensive and said: 'There's no bigger media vulture in this wedding than you. You are doing a book called the 'Diary of princess pushy's sister'.'

Samantha replied that a 'book cannot be judged by its cover or by its title'. 

She also claimed that she was 'the culprit' behind the embarrassing 'faked' photographs of their father taken in the run-up to this week's royal wedding.

Samantha said she advised him to co-operate with a US-based paparazzo photographer in order to show himself - and, strangely, the royal family - in a 'positive' light and insisted his motive hadn't been money.

But she could not confirm whether Mr Markle had actually accepted any payment for his collusion for the stunt. Mr Markle later told TMZ he had.

Ms Markle told GMB: 'He was unfairly present in the media as shabby, I think photographer looked for the most unflattering photographs. 

'My father has really suffered at the hands of the media. I think a person has a right to say 'enough is enough, I wasn't to be shown how I really am'.

But Piers hit back: 'You've spent the last two years criticising her, you called her narcissistic, selfish, that Hollywood has changed her and that Prince Harry shouldn't marry her, yet you have the gall to blame media vultures.

'You've made loads of money off the back of a tenuous link to Meghan Markle, who you've spoken to once in 10 years. You've been trashing her for two years you vulture'.
