AceShowbiz - Meghan Markle's estranged half-sister Samantha Markle left humiliated as she was turned away by security at Kensington Palace. It seemed like Samantha, who appears to be in London since late September, hadn't given up the idea of meeting the Duchess of Sussex face-to-face as she showed up at the Palace uninvited.
In some photos that circulated online, Samantha was seen outside the palace gates with her male partner talking to security guards. The 53-year-old, who was in a wheelchair due to multiple sclerosis, was later snapped handing a letter to a palace guard. It was said that she got into a verbal "stand-off" with an officer guarding a security checkpoint.
"She went to the gates and tried to reason with them. She explained she had been in touch with palace officials and claimed they had ignored her advances, leaving her no choice but to arrive uninvited," a source revealed to The Mirror. "She fully hoped they would let her in but she was turned away. She handed a letter to one of the guards in the hope they would pass it on. It was a sad sight."
Of the letter, Samantha wrote on her Twitter account, "Everybody would love to know what's in that letter." She added a variety of emojis, including an angel and a kissy face, in the tweet.

"This was a huge move on the part of Meghan's sister to try to see her face to face and the fact she was turned away speaks volumes," the source continued. "This is the closest Meghan has come physically to that side of her family since she married into the royal family but palace staff had clearly been instructed not to allow her access."
Another photo, meanwhile, featured Samantha approaching a souvenir stand that sells masks bearing Meghan and Harry's faces. It appeared that she bought one apiece while sporting a huge smile on her face.
It arrived after Samantha attacked Meghan and her mom Doria Ragland in a series of Twitter rants. "The world does not know that our dad raised her most of the time without the input of her mother especially from age 12 through high school and he gave her everything she had and is," Samantha wrote.
"She was never raised as an only child. Truth kids! He is amazing and successful and mags lie," she continued.
In a reply to one of her followers, Samantha said, "Glad you love people you don't even know. But everything that you think you know from tabloids is a lie. Dad pretty much raised her most of her life on his own and Doria was not around very much."
