Markle's half-sister says father under 'unbelievable' stress

Piers Morgan didn't hold back during his interview with Meghan Markle's sister Samantha on Good Morning Britain.

The controversial television host tears shreds off Samantha Markle, the half-sister of princess-in-waiting Meghan Markle, in a fiery TV interview on Good Morning Britain.

But Morgan was having none of it.

If he had been paid, she insisted, it would have been a "pittance".

The host then broke out a question that surprised his guest but asked what many observers had been thinking. She took full responsibility for setting up her father Thomas' fake photo shoot.

She'd already taken the blame for the phony photoshoots in a tweet Monday, claiming she suggested the idea "for the benefit of the royal family" after the paps kept portraying her dad as a schlub. "I think a person has a right to say 'Enough is enough, '" Samantha said, before Piers interjected, "There's no bigger media vulture than you, is there, Ms. Markle?".

But Morgan was not accepting this because he believes that Markle is still stinging from her sister's rejection.

Morgan fired back. "There's no bigger media vulture with this wedding than you", he said.

While most would wither under Morgan's steely glare, Samantha carried on defending herself and her father and explaining her actions and describing how her father had called her from the freeway in a panic after being followed by a number of photographers. But Piers wasn't accepting this and reminded Markle that she was the one who was writing a memoir about her estranged younger sibling as soon as she learned that Meghan Markle was dating Prince Harry.

He also pointed out the fact she had called Meghan "narcissistic" and "selfish" in the past.

Meghan Markle's half-sister Samantha was appearing on the show to defend her family. "Doing a deal with the paparazzi knowing that they'd [Prince Harry and Meghan] be horrified".

"There have been examples in history of how unsafe that can be", she added, in what seemed like an allusion to Princess Diana's fatal 1997 auto crash.
