Meghan Markle’s half-sister, Samantha Markle, has been accused of cyberbullying.

An officer working on the case for Polk County Sheriff Department in Florida revealed that Samantha is currently being investigated by the US police. While speaking with Sunday People, the officer said that Samantha faces multiple allegations of cyberbullying, and she is aware of them.

“She has not been arrested. This is an ongoing case and I cannot speculate on a timeline yet or make any other comment,” the officer said.

Those who filed a complaint against the Duchess of Sussex’s half-sister are from the United States, Sweden, and Canada.

“The allegations relate to numerous internet platforms and include complaints from at least four countries, including the UK, Canada, and Sweden. It is a large and widespread investigation and is likely to be a long process. The investigation is still at an early stage,” the source said.

Throughout the past couple of months, Markle’s half-sister has been very quiet. She has not been giving interviews and she has not also been criticizing the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Royal fans thought that the British clan paid the multiple sclerosis patient to keep quiet and to stay out of the limelight. But it seems that the real reason for her silence has just been revealed.

Since Samantha is aware of the case against her, it is highly likely that is trying to stay as low-key as possible. In the past, she claimed that she will be publishing a two-part story about her childhood with Prince Harry’s wife.

But one of Markle’s friends said that Samantha and the Duchess of Sussex never had a relationship because they didn’t grow up together. Their age gap was also quite huge. Until today, the two-part book has not yet been released.

Samantha was also the one responsible for encouraging Markle’s dad, Thomas Markle Sr., to pose for a series of fake photos ahead of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s royal wedding.
