The Sunday Times reported on Sunday, December 30, that Markle, that has repeatedly criticized the former Suits star since her engagement and marriage to Prince Harry , was flagged by the authorities royalty and specialist protection unit. As a consequence of her continued interviews and tweets, where she has taken aim at the newlyweds, she allegedly poses a “ reputational risk” to the royal family.
A Scotland Yard source told the Times , “ Someone like Samantha presents a risk rather than a threat. She is not committing criminal offences, but she is causing concerns for the royal family. ”
“ There is certainly big potential for some significant humiliation for the royals, ” the source continued. “ Samantha could make a scene that headlines with her activities — and let’ s face it, she’ s kind of already done that. ”
She has also slammed the Duchess of Sussex lately, claiming the couple’ s Christmas card, which showed them watching fireworks at their May wedding, was obviously a sign that she had turned her back on her family. She dissed the pregnant royal after Meghan, who’s expecting he first child in the spring, snubbed a Christmas card that Samantha shared publicly. The aspiring author, who was not invited into the couple’ s wedding at Windsor Castle, told Meghan it was time and energy to “ end the rift” with their dad, Thomas Markle .
Meghan and her daddy haven’ t spoken since the day after she married Harry. The former TV lighting director, 74, didn’ t attend the nuptials after suffering a heart attack in the wake of a paparazzi photo scandal. He’s since angrily spoken in their estrangement in several interviews and labeled the royal family as “ cult-like” — “ like Scientologists or the Stepford family. ”
A source told Us Weekly before this month the former actress, 37, has “ completely cut” off her daddy actually of his “ betrayal. ”
The FTAC’ s website says its purpose “ would be to assess and manage the risks from lone individuals who harass, stalk or threaten public figures. ”
Security sources tell the Times that Samantha’ s “ pattern of unwanted and persistent behavior” would have been discussed from the duchess and her defense officers “ during briefings. ”
Samantha responded to the report on Twitter on Sunday, tweeting, “ This is ridiculous as I’ m in an electric wheelchair and I reside on an alternative continent LOL and advocating for doing the right thing by our father is hardly fixation. Stop your lying crap or be sued. ”
Kensington Palace declined to comment to the Times and Scotland Yard told the newspaper, “ We don’t confirm the identity of any person who may or may not be of interest to the authorities unless that person has been charged. ”
