Meghan Markle’s half-sister Samantha has defended her father, claiming Thomas 'might be a bit shy but has a huge heart'.
The 53-year-old touched down in London, where she wants to meet with the Duchess of Sussex.
But now Samantha has lashed out at the media, claiming they 'just regurgitate rumours' about her and her family, which are 'a joke'.
She wrote: 'I guarantee that 99% of you if you could meet my dad he would love him and want to give them a big hug he is a sweetheart and might be a little shy but he has a huge heart so it is very wrong to misinterpret him.'
This latest headline comes just days after her publicist Rob Cooper took to Twitter to reveal they were heading to London to meet the former Suits actress.
'Samantha Markle is coming to the UK. After making numerous attempts in private to arrange a one on one meeting with The Duchess of Sussex to discuss their 74 year old father’s health, Kensington Palace have refused to respond.
'I fear Meghan may not be made aware of these discreet, attempts and therefore making this public is the only option we have left. I currently have Samantha in Europe with just one short flight away.
'This DOESN’T need to be public, we would prefer to keep this private. Samantha is coming to the UK this week, like it or not.'
