When most of the free world took a glimpse at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s first-ever Christmas card, they smiled in delight.
They stood up and cheered. They nodded in recognition of true, fairy tale-like love.
But not Samantha Markle.
She experienced none of these emotions and took none of these actions upon glancing at the featured holiday image posted here:
"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are delighted to share a new photograph from their Wedding Reception at Frogmore House on 19th May,” Kensington Palace Tweeted as a caption to this photo late last week, adding:
"The photograph, which features on Their Royal Highnesses’ Christmas card, was taken by photographer Chris Allerton."
It’s lovely, right?
It clearly depicts Harry and Meghan peering into the future, feeling in that moment as if there’s no one else in the entire world but each other, right?
Wrong, Samantha has written in response.
"Interesting that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have their backs turned," she Tweeted shortly after the picture was released, asking:
"Is this towards the world or just the Ragland and Markle family? It’s a bit sad. Face the Christmas spirit."
We must say:
This is pretty desperate on Samantha’s part.
As loyal ceebrity gossip followers know by now, she has spent the last year or so bashing her half-sister at every opportunity
Yes, Samantha is 17 years older than Meghan and, no, the two did not share a household growing up and they barely know each other.
But this hasn’t stopped Samantha from slamming Meghan as phony and ungrateful and rude to her loved ones throughout the entire time she’s been dating Prince Harry.
At least past attacks felt creative and original, though.
Heck, she once referred to Meghan as the DuchASS.
Another time, she insinuated that Markle wanted to murder puppies.
Here, however, the best Samantha can muster is to somehow argue that Meghan and Harry using a photograph of their backs is disrespectful to the birthday of Jesus Christ and all it stands for?
That’s pretty lame and quite a stretch.
"It’s incredibly rude to turn your back in a Christmas photo that is meant to share warmth and good wishes with the world," Samantha added on Twitter, doubling down on this line of attack.
"Those that criticize me for pointing out the truth, need to get that brown stuff off their noses. I hear the worlds smallest violin playing," she also wrote.
Apparently content with this theme, evidently thinking that she was really jabbing Meghan and Harry hard, Samantha continued on Saturday as follows:
"turn your backs to people on a Christmas card is rude. if you want to be private you don’t do it on a Christmas card but the world sees. That’s like saying merry Christmas look at my butt."
Sure. Yes. That’s exactly what this is like.
Samantha has criticitized Meghan for many reasons, but the main beef has been with the expecting mother’s treatment of their shared father, Thomas Markle.
Ever since Thomas skipped the Royal Wedding in May, Samantha has been banging the same drum hard, saying he doesn’t deserve to be cut out of his daughter’s life.
And Thomas feels the same way.
Over the weekend, he told The Daily Mail that there’s a "wall of silence" between himself and the Royal Family.
He blames Prince Harry and his child for this, telling the British publication:
"If she would just speak to me, things could be different."
And if Thomas and Samantha didn’t suck so much, we think maybe she would.
