The Duchess of Sussex's estranged half-sister has slammed Meghan and Harry's Christmas card, suggesting that the new Royal has "turned her back on her family".

Samantha Markle hit out at Meghan and Prince Harry's festive card, which shows the couple with their backs to the camera as they watched fireworks at Frogmore House on their wedding night.

However, Ms Markle was less than impressed with the image choice, taking to Twitter to claim it shows Meghan has turned her back on her family.

She wrote: “Interesting that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have their backs turned. Is this towards the world or just the Ragland and Markle family? It’s a bit sad. Face the Christmas spirit.”

In another tweet on Friday evening, Ms Markle continued: “It’s incredibly rude to turn your back in a Christmas photo that is meant to share warmth and good wishes to the world.

“Those that criticise me for pointing out the truth need to get that brown stuff off their noses.”

Harry and Meghan shared the photograph on social media this week, while the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge shared a family photograph with George, Charlotte and Louis.

Ms Markle has been outspoken on her opinions towards her sister in the past and stated that she could do more to help their father, who did not attend the royal wedding in May due to his health.

The outspoken sibling has previously insulted Meghan on Twitter, once branding the Duchess of Sussex as “Cruella de Vil", "Duch-ass" and the "Duchess of Nonsense".

Writing on Twitter in September, she said: “I am not candy coating anything anymore! The DUCHASS should be human to our father who has given her everything…

“He was the one who was always there for her. Fake waves and smiles can stop. The duchASS can bow to the daddy.”

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also released their Christmas card on Friday, opting for an autumnal photo with their three children on a tree trunk.

With smiles all round, the Duchess of Cambridge cradles baby Louis - who is now almost eight months old - as she rests against a tree trunk in woodland at their Anmer Hall home in Norfolk with the Duke of Cambridge.

Three-year-old Charlotte stands on the trunk with her arms around her parents' shoulders, while five-year-old George playfully holds on to his father as he stands one-legged in wellies on the trunk.
