MEGHAN Markle’s half-sister has claimed the duchess told a big lie in her first official speech on the Royal Tour.
According to Samantha Markle, the Duchess of Sussex was “delusionally absurd” to claim to an audience at the University of the South Pacific’s campus in Fiji yesterday that she had paid her own university fees, using scholarships and financial aid programs.
In an angry since-deleted tweet, Samantha criticised her sibling, claiming it was actually their father, Thomas Markle Senior, who’d forked out the money for her education.

In her widely-praised speech on Tuesday, Meghan told the crowd that she understood the “personal feeling of pride and excitement” that came with attending university.
“I am also fully aware of the challenges of being able to afford this level of schooling for many people around the world — myself included,” she said.
“It was through scholarships, financial aid programs and work-study where my earnings from a job on campus went directly towards my tuition — that I was able to attend university. And, without question, it was worth every effort.”
