Meghan Markle's half-sister, Samantha Markle, has spoken out since the explosive Oprah interview and has claimed Meghan is a "narcissist" following the comments made about their "lost father."
Read on to hear what she had to say...
Now, Sunday night brought the moment we'd all been waiting for.
Oprah Winfrey's exclusive interview with former senior royals, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, finally hit our screens.
It's no secret that the couple had been having a tough time in the last few years thanks to the pressures from the royal family and the British press...
But we did not expect things to be this wild.
It's clear that issues started from the day Meghan and Harry announced they wanted to be married and those same issues still continue to haunt them both today; despite them packing their things and moving hundreds of miles away from the family.
The couple's revelations hit everyone hard...
And after watching the interview, people couldn't help but sympathize with them for all the traumatizing things they had to endure through their marriage while working for the royal family.
For instance, Meghan admitted she went into her marriage with Harry very "naively."
She told Oprah that she did not do much research before settling down with Harry.
"I didn't grow up knowing much about the royal family," she said, "It wasn't something that was part of the conversation at home. It wasn't something we followed."
She explained how, in the States, a lot of people romanticize the idea of being a royal, like it's something out of a fairytale when in actual fact it's entirely different...
And even though she didn't expect her life to be as magical as people told her it was going to be, she didn't expect it to take the dark turn that it did.
She also explained how she "never looked up [her] husband online."
She continued: "I just didn't feel the need to because everything that I needed to know, he was sharing with me — or everything we thought I needed to know, he was telling me."
Meghan also revealed that she and Harry got "officially" married 3 days prior to the televised wedding so they could have a "moment" to themselves.
Meghan then spoke about curtsying Queen Elizabeth, even behind the scenes.
Meghan was first introduced to her soon-to-be relatives, including the Queen, when the pair were invited for lunch at the Royal Lodge, where Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew live.
"Right, do you know how to curtsy?" Harry asked Meghan upon finding out that she would be meeting his grandmother.
But Meghan was confused because she thought curtsying was just an official move.
"I genuinely thought that was what happens outside. I thought that was part of the fanfare. I didn't think that was what happens inside. And I said, 'But it's your grandmother,' and he said, 'It's the Queen.'"
People found this revelation hysterical...

And it didn't take long for the jokes to come flooding in on Twitter.
But the interview took a dark turn when Harry revealed that Meghan was the one who made him realize he was "trapped."
When Oprah asked Harry if he would have been able to step down from his royal duties without Meghan, he said that he wouldn't have.
"I wouldn't have been able to, because I myself was trapped as well. I didn't see a way out."
He explained what it was like being part of that family.
"No matter who you are in the family, no matter what's going on in your personal life, no matter what's just happened, if the bikes roll up and the car rolls up you gotta get dressed you gotta get in there, wipe the tears away, shake off whatever you're thinking about, and you gotta be on your A-game."
He also added how he has "compassion" for his brother and his father.
"They don't get to leave. And I have huge compassion for that."
People's hearts broke for Harry at this point...
Prince Harry just breaks my heart. He looks sad... broken... his family has really hurt him — there’s healing to be done. But he & Meghan love each other & they are strong. They’re going to make it. #HarryandMeghanonOprah— Rochelle Cortez (@Rochell21664616) March 8, 2021
And there's no denying how hard this whole experience has been on the prince.
Harry was even cut off financially at the start of 2020.
He revealed that the couple was cut off financially from the family after they made the announcement to step back from their royal duties and since then, they have been living off the inheritance of Harry's late mother, Princess Diana.
"I've got all my mum left me. And without that, we would not have been able to do this. She saw it coming, and I certainly felt her presence throughout this whole process."
It's easy to see the parallels between the treatment of Diana and Meghan throughout their time as senior royals...
And many worry they are going to see history repeat itself. It really is a scary thought.
Meghan then spoke about how she was "silenced" by the royal family.
"I've always been outspoken, especially about women's rights, and that's the sad irony of the last 4 years, I've advocated for so long for women to use their voice."
The idea that she was "protected" by the royal family fully crumbled after the marriage.
Meghan said this:
"That was hard to reconcile because it was only once we were married and everything started to really worsen that I came to understand that not only was I not being protected, but that they were willing to lie to protect other members of the family. They weren't willing to tell the truth to protect me and my husband."
And she then revealed that it was actually Kate Middleton who was the one who made her cry.
Just before Harry and Meghan's wedding, there were several reports that Meghan had made her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton cry when in fact, it was the other way around.
Meghan said she found the narrative "shocking," when she saw it in the press...
And she also referred to it as the "beginning of a character assassination."
While she didn't go into too much detail about the actual incident, she did say that the 2 made up after it.
"I don't say that to be disparaging to anyone, because it was a really hard week of the wedding, and she was upset about something. But she owned it, and she apologized, and she brought me flowers and a note apologizing", but she did say that the situation "made [her] cry" and "hurt her feelings."
Then came the revelation about an unnamed senior royal's "concerns" over Archie's skin color.
Now, this might be one of the most shocking revelations to come out of the interview.
Meghan and Harry said that prior to Archie's birth in 2019, there had been months on conversations about his skin color.
Meghan told Oprah this:
"In those months when I was pregnant, all around this same time, we have in tandem the conversation of he won't be given security, he's not going to be given a title, and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he's born."
Some had even gone as far as wondering "what that would mean or look like" if their son had dark skin.
The couple said they would never name the people that made these comments because they "think that would be very damaging to them."
"That conversation I'm never going to share," Harry later added when he joined the interview. "At the time, it was awkward. I was a bit shocked."
But the thing that stood out the most for viewers was when Meghan then opened up about having suicidal thoughts while pregnant with Archie.
After marrying into the royal family, Meghan revealed that she had "suicidal thoughts."
"I was ashamed to say it at the time and ashamed to have to admit it to Harry. But I knew that if I didn't say it - then I would do it."
"I just didn't want to be alive anymore," she added. "That was a clear and real and frightening and constant thought."
Meghan also revealed that during this dark time, she had spoken to another senior royal who informed her that she couldn't seek help for mental health because it would look bad on the family as a whole.
But what about Meghan's own family?
Of course, we all know about the rift between Meghan and her estranged father, Thomas Markle - a man who profited from staged paparazzi photos just before the wedding - and this was something Oprah just couldn't not mention.
"Did it feel like a betrayal when you found out your father was working with the tabloids," Oprah asked, to which Meghan admitted she ultimately did feel betrayed as her father promised her he wouldn't do such a thing.
Meghan claimed her father didn't have any interest in protecting her...
Which is especially painful for Meghan now that she's a mother herself and understands what it's like to care for and protect a child.
She also disclosed how she isn't "at all close" to her half-sister, Samantha Markle, who has written a supposedly "tell-all" book about her relationship with Meghan.
"I think it'd be very hard to tell all when you don't know me."
"This is a very different situation from my dad because betrayal comes from someone you have a relationship with, I don't feel comfortable talking about people that I really don't know but I grew up as an only child... and I wished I had siblings! I would have loved to have had siblings," Meghan said, before disclosing that the last time she saw her half-sister was eighteen years ago.
So, according to Meghan, she barely knows her half-sister and doesn't hold a relationship with her at all.
Well, Samantha Markle has claimed that this is far from the case and has brutally spoken out following her sister's bombshell interview on Sunday.
While on the Australian radio show Fifi, Fev & Nick yesterday, Samantha didn't hold back.
"When she said 'I lost my dad'... the world watched as my dad was in interviews wanting communication with his daughter. She didn't lose her dad. She iced her dad!" she said angrily.
Samantha then expressed how "sorry she feels" for Prince Harry.
"I feel sorry for Harry. He fell victim to her negligence, and I will say sociopathy ... she pulled him away from his family, all of his friends, the life that he knew."
Samantha then hit back at Meghan's claims to not have a relationship with her sister.
"I don't know how she can say I don't know her and she was an only child. We've got photographs over a lifespan so how can she not know me?"
Samantha suggested that her sister is in desperate need of counseling...
And that she sees a "narcissistic personality disorder."
