Meghan Markle half-sister Samantha Remembrance Day Archie Piers Morgan

Meghan Markle’s half-sister Samantha has reemerged to blast the royal as “exploitative” for their Remembrance Day photo op while also issuing a desperately plea to see her 1- year-old nephew Archie, who her side of the family has never met. 

Samantha Markle Calls Meghan’s Remembrance Day Photo Op ‘Exploitative’

Earlier this week, Meghan and Prince Harry were widely slammed for having a professional photographer take pictures of them as they visited the Los Angeles National Cemetery for Remembrance Day.

Samantha had some choice words for her half-sister about this as well, calling her “exploitative” for setting up the photo op.

“Well, don’t get me started on the concept of photo scandals, because allegedly that was the reason she disowned our father,” Samantha said in an interview with the U.K.’s talkRadio. 

“So I was a bit shocked to see that on such an important topic — Remembrance and gratitude towards so many who have sacrificed their lives so we can live as we do today, as Harry said — that gratitude would be shown by an exploitative photo opportunity over fallen heroes,” she added.

Meghan Markle’s Family Wants To See Archie

In virtually the same breath, Samantha made it clear that she badly wants to meet her 1 year-old nephew Archie, who she has yet to ever see in person.

“Archie has become somewhat of a phantom in the eyes of everybody, because he must be walking now and he wasn’t present at the memorial,” she said.

“I think the world hopes for the best for him, but I can’t address it now because we haven’t seen him and I don’t know that we will sadly.”

Samantha, slamming Archie’s mother as “exploitative” might not be the best strategy, if you really want to meet him!

Piers Morgan Shared Samantha’s Opinion Of Remembrance Day Photos

However, Samantha was far from the only person who felt this way about Meghan and Harry’s latest stunt.

Earlier this week, we reported that British television personality Piers Morgan had blasted them over it.

“My god, they’ve even turned Remembrance Sunday into another self-publicity stunt. Have they no shame?” Morgan tweeted, later adding, “Just outrageous – treating Remembrance Sunday like a PR opportunity, & trying to steal headlines from the real royals doing their duty back home.”

Remembrance Day LA Photo Op Invites Royal Backlash

Royal expert Ingrid Seward spoke out to say that many in the British public felt the same way.

“The Sussex’s appeared to be on their own in the vast Los Angeles Cemetery,” Seward told The Sun. “Then we learn they had employed the services of celebrity fashion photographer to record their every scripted move.”

“Did they sit there amongst the graves with rapper Kanye West’s favorite snapper, Lee Morgan choosing which frames to use as he pulled them up on his iPad,” she added. “The Sussex’s wanted it to look like they cared, which I am sure they did. But it backfired and looked like what it was – a publicity stunt.”

In fact, people were so incensed by this that calls went out again for the Queen to strip the couple’s Royal titles.

This didn’t bode well for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex given the Queen had just shot down their Remembrance Day request.

Samantha Markle has long been seen as fame-seeker who will say anything about her half-sister Meghan just for attention.

However, it seems that this time, she may have hit the nail on the head with her critique of the royal.
