Duchess Meghan’s half-sister, Samantha Grant Markle, has taken to Twitter to slander her new coat of arms. In the post, Markle ridiculed the artistry involved in the design.


The coat of arms was released on Twitter by Kensington Palace. Markle appears to have also taken offense that their father wasn’t named as well.

Markle bashed her sister’s coat of arms partially because she felt it unfair that their father, Thomas Markle, was not named on the Duchess’ coat of arms. She also added that her father was deserving because he had ties to his now Royal daughter.

She also asked where the representation of women's rights or humanitarianism was on the new coat of arms. A few days ago, Markle had insulted Meghan for being 'ungrateful' and said the Duchess didn't 'walk on water.'


The wheelchair-bound woman spends a lot of time attacking her sister on social media. BET published an article calling Markle a 'bitter half-sister' and wrote that the white side of the Duchess’ family was living in jealousy.

Markle snapped back at the publication and called them losers for pulling the race card. In past tweets, she spoke ill of Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland.

'Extremely improper that my father was not named on the coat of arms, and quite frankly it looks like it was drawn by someone in a kindergarten classroom.'

Markle claimed that Ragland had been paid for an interview with Oprah Winfrey. On Tuesday she continued her attacks by saying that Meghan’s mother hag hogged the limelight at the Royal wedding.

Each member of the Royal Family has their own special design which signifies their rank and identity. The Queen signed off on Meghan's design.

The blue background of the shield represents the Pacific Ocean off the California coast, while the two golden rays across the shield are symbolic of the sunshine of the Duchess' home state. The three quills represent communication and the power of words.


Meghan's new cipher, or letterhead, featuring the letter 'M' with a crown on top was also announced by Kensington Palace. The golden poppies, California's state flower, beneath the shield on the grass and the wintersweet, which grows at Kensington Palace were all incorporated in the coat of arms.

Meghan's father might still receive a coat of arms as both Kate and Sophie Rhys-Jones' fathers got theirs when their daughters were married. The reason for the delay could be that Thomas still needs to prove that he has an ancestor who was a subject of the Crown.
