Back in March 2022, Samantha sued the Duchess of Sussex for defamation. In her lawsuit, she took issue with comments that Meghan has made both publicly and during her interview with Oprah Winfrey and the 2020 biography Finding Freedom, written by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand.

Samantha accused Meghan of pushing a false “rags to royalty” narrative in the media. She said Meghan has been spreading lies about her to present a certain image to the world.

She said Meghan told Oprah she was an “only child” despite them sharing the same father, Thomas Markle.

Samantha said Meghan claimed to have a rough childhood but actually grew up in “elite and expensive private schools.” She said the claims that Harry’s wife worked hard to pay her way through college were made up and that their father covered Meghan’s tuition and living expenses.

Markle has attempted to dismiss the lawsuit without success. At the time the lawsuit was filed, her lawyer said, "This baseless and absurd lawsuit is just a continuation of a pattern of disturbing behavior. We will give it the minimum attention necessary, which is all it deserves."
