Meghan Markle's half-sister says she won't stop talking negatively about her to the press

Meghan Markle and her half-sister, Samantha Grant are not the best of friends and Samantha is using the media focus on Meghan's Saturday Royal Wedding with Prince Harry to air out her anger towards her estranged sister.

Samantha Grant has been airing out her family's dirty laundry since Prince Harry, 33, and Markle, 36, announced their engagement in November.

While Americans have become somewhat used to the reality TV-style drama over the Markle family, some Brits are unhappy over the "Jerry Springer"-level media circus.

And Samantha says Meghan can't make her stop talking to the press because she's American and has the right to free speech.

Samantha told TMZ that whatever censorship laws that operate in the U.K. doesn't apply to her in the US and she will keep talking about Meghan's relationship, or lack thereof, with her father's side of the family.

Grant said she and her dad are being "disparaged" by the media.

"There's something in this country known as freedom of speech, she doesn't have a copyright on that. and she's not gonna tell me that I can't speak about my own life or my father's...  I'm not gonna take it. She's not qualified to suggest that I don't, under any law in this country," Samantha Markle told TMZ.

She adds: "This is not Great Britain. I am a United States citizen and that's all there is to it. She's way out of her league to tell me that I can't speak. I'm not saying anything about her, but if I'm talking about my life and my father's she has to respect it.

"Meghan and I do not have a relationship now. The last year I think has been strained because of what tabloids have said. But Meg doesn't have a relationship that I've seen with anyone in the family."

When asked if she got Meghan and Prince Harry a wedding gift, she said:

"I did. I did. I searched the world for something that I thought was really sentimental and I'll like to give it to her in person, but if not, I will certainly send it."

Samantha says fame has changed Meghan. She recently detailed her plans for a tell-all book about Markle potentially titled "The Diary of Princess Pushy's Sister."
