Meghan Markle's sister, Samantha believes the former actress and Prince Harry have burnt their bridges with the British public after their "hurtful" attacks.

Harry, 37, and Meghan, 40, left the world speechless when they decided to step down as senior working royals in January 2020.

Since then, they have delivered several bombshell interviews, most famously with Oprah Winfrey, during which, Meghan claimed she had suffered racism from within the Royal Family.

The pair however decided not to name the person who is claimed to have made comments surrounding the race of their first-born, Archie-Harrison.

Harry also claims he was "financially cut off" by his dad, Prince Charles and even claimed the Prince of Wales refused to speak to him on the phone.

Speaking exclusively to the Daily Star from her home in Florida, Samantha said: "I can't speak for the British people but from what I've heard, the pulse of the people is not likely.

"Their actions against The Royal Family and the racial mudslinging that took place in the media was so hurtful and egregious that you can't take back the spoken word.

"There are some things that you can, you can forgive but it seems to be an ongoing thing."

The former actress continued: "It's one insult after the other and people can only take so much before the impression is solidified.

"You might be able to forgive but you don't forget and it makes that inability to forget makes things very awkward and they can never be as cosy as they once were."

Since leaving the United Kingdom in favour of a life in California, Harry has returned to his home country on two occasions, once for his grandfather Prince Philip's funeral and for the unveiling of a statue of his mum, Diana, Princess of Wales and an Invictus charity event.

He was stripped of his protection from The Met Police after stepping down, a move that he claims is the reason why he cannot return to London.

A spokesperson for the pair said they fund a "private security team" but their own security "cannot replicate the necessary police protection needed" in the UK.

Harry's team claim that his private security guards do not have access to the same level of intelligence that security provided by the UK state would be able to access.

The Duke of Sussex chose not to attend a memorial service for his late grandfather due to this, a move that left Samantha far from impressed.

She fumed: "He should have hired more of his own security, they live a lavish lifestyle, they can afford security, it's ridiculous.

"Security for a weekend of something is not that expensive and I'm pretty sure they have security now."

She went on to add that it was "mind-boggling" that Harry would say security issues are preventing him from attending, given the family will have members of their own security, as well as that of the European royals.
