Samantha Markle, Meghan Markle’s estranged half sister, is reportedly being investigated by police for online bullying.
The investigation comes after American police received complaints from no fewer than four countries including Canada, Sweden and the UK.
Samantha who hails from Virginia allegedly wrote multiple contentious messages about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex online.
A Polk County Sheriff Department officer said: ‘There have been multiple reports of allegations of cyber-bullying made.’
The officer, who is working on the investigation, added: ‘It is a large and widespread investigation and is likely to be a long process.’
This comes after the Duchess of Sussex was moved close to tears as she told of her ‘struggle’ at being in the media spotlight in an emotional interview for ITV documentary ‘Harry and Meghan: An African Journey’.
The Duchess of Sussex’s voice cracked as she revealed she has found it difficult to cope after getting married and giving birth, adding: ‘Not many people have asked if I’m ok.’
On Friday, Samantha Markle branded her estranged half-sister Meghan a hypocrite for this statement and said she couldn’t believe Meghan would have the ‘audacity’ to make such a remark given that she hasn’t checked in on their father, Thomas Markle Sr, through his multiple health scares in recent years.
