Meghan Markle's sister Samantha bashes on the Royal Christmas card for what it pictures
Samantha Markle is once again rebuking her sister. This time, it's for her choice of photo on her first royal Christmas card.
On Friday, the Kensington palace's Twitter account posted an image of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. It was the photo on their first Christmas card as a royal couple.
The picture featured Markle wearing her second wedding dress at her Wedding Reception on Frogmore House grounds back in May. She and Harry are gazing up at a fireworks display over a lake.

The Duchess of Sussex yesterday attended a meeting with The Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) at King’s College London. Her Royal Highness joined university leaders, academics and international scholarship students as they discussed the role of higher education in addressing issues such as human trafficking, modern slavery, gender equality, peace and reconciliation, and climate change. In a speech during the Royal Visit to Fiji in October, The Duchess announced two ACU Gender Grants for the University of the South Pacific and Fiji National University, to fund new learning initiatives aimed at empowering female university staff and promoting gender equality.
The black and white picture has not been seen before. But Samantha Markle seems to believe that now was not the time to reveal it. She attacked the view from the back of the photo.
She began her Twitter rant:
"Interesting that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have their backs turned. Is this towards the world or just the Ragland and Markle family? It’s a bit sad. Face the Christmas spirit."
Samantha was referring to the Duchess of Sussex ghosting her father after getting married earlier this year. Meghan has not spoken to Thomas Markle since the eve of her wedding day.
The 53-year-old continued her rant:
"It’s incredibly rude to turn your back in a Christmas photo that is meant to share warmth and good wishes with the world. Those. that criticize me for pointing out the truth, need to get that brown stuff off their noses. I hear the worlds smallest violin playing."
Others also criticized the look from behind in the picture. But Samantha may have been most offended.
She stated crudely:
"If you want to be private don't do it on a Christmas card but the world sees. That's like saying Merry Christmas look at my butt."
The picture can be compared to Kate Middleton and Prince William's card. It includes all three of their children and the family is smiling at the camera.

Prince Charles and Camilla also brought Christmas cheer with a photo of the two looking lovingly into each other's eyes as they sit on a bench.
A pregnant Markle has tons of support to counter the backlash from the dimmed out photo. And royal fans are focusing on other things in the picture.
For instance, followers pointed out the beauty of the halter dress which was designed by Stella McCartney for the event.
In the caption, the Kensington palace gave further details:
"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are delighted to share a new photograph from their Wedding Reception at Frogmore House on 19th May. The photograph, which features on Their Royal Highnesses' Christmas card, was taken by photographer Chris Allerton."
As time goes on, Meghan's sister and father continue to reach out to her after being shunned by the 37-year-old. Thomas did an interview earlier this week on "Good Morning Britain."
While there, he implored his daughter to respond to his messages or contact him in any way at all.
The 73-year-old also revealed that he's penned letters to the queen asking for her help in fixing the ongoing rift. He said: "I appreciate anything [The Queen] could do."
Thomas also hopes to see his grandchild who is expected in the Spring of 2019. He thinks he or she might "soften" the rift between him and Meghan.
Thomas claimed he would not remain silent. He is sad that this might be the first Christmas in which he doesn't receive a card or call from Meghan.
Despite that, he still wished her a Merry Christmas and continues to hope that Meghan will eventually reach out to him.
