Samantha insists she's not bad-mouthing Meghan. she's just defending herself.

'Many of our viewers, I think, may have watched your activities over the last year-and-a-half and think you have treated your sister, Meghan, in a very shabby way - that may be of course why you're not invited to the wedding'.

With the media locked in a revolving door of will-he-won't-he surrounding Meghan and Samantha's father Thomas and his attendance at Saturday's royal wedding, the latter has been doing the rounds of TV talk shows to give rolling updates and explain her role in Mr Markle's freaky decision to stage photographs with a paparazzi photographer. I didn't want him deprive of that. But clearly the priority should be whether or not it's safe for him to do that.

"My father has really suffered at the hands of the media".

He also pointed out the fact she had called Meghan "narcissistic" and "selfish" in the past. "We all have these kinds of relatives tucked away somewhere in our families but those dramas are not dished up for public consumption".

CNN has reached out to Thomas Markle for comment by phone and over email but has not yet received a response.
