Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle‘s half-sister Samantha Markle was turned away by security at Kensington Palace on Saturday after she reportedly showed up without an invitation.

According to Us Weekly, 53-year-old Samantha Markle was seen arriving at her 37-year-old half-sister’s home with Prince Harry in London. The older Markle sister was reportedly being pushed in a wheelchair, as she suffers from multiple sclerosis. She also was spotted handing a letter in an envelope to one of the guards at Kensington Palace.


Samantha Markle is not the only one of the princess’s relatives to make a scene in recent months. Just days before Meghan — a former model and actress — was married to Prince Harry, 34, in May, her father Thomas Markle was caught in a scandal when it was discovered he was staging paparazzi pictures. He then had heart surgery and was unable to attend the royal wedding.
