The Duchess of Sussex’s half-sister Samantha Markle is bashing reports that she’s been place on a ‘fixated persons’ list over the risks she poses of embarrassing the Royal family.
Samantha, 53, who lives in Florida, has made a string of public snipes at Meghan since she not being invited to the Royal Wedding earlier this year.
It’s been reported that The Duchess’s protection officers have briefed Scotland Yard detectives over the the damage Samantha could cause to the Royal family’s reputation.
Samantha has shot down those reports as ‘fake news’, tweeting Saturday that labeling her as ‘fixated’ is ‘ridiculous’ as she’s only ‘advocating for doing the right thing by our dad’, Thomas Markle.

Samantha’s Twitter tirade began in response to an article by The Australian which reported that police were guarding The Duchess from her sister.
‘More retarded ”fake news” by #Australia,’ she said. ‘This is ridiculous as I’m in an electric wheelchair and i live ona different continent LOL and afdvocating for doing the right this by our dad is hardly fixations.
‘Stop your lying nonsense or be sued.’
She goes on to say the media is the one fixated on the ongoing drama between the Markles, not her.
Scotland Yard’s Fixated Threat Assessment Centre (FTAC) is a police unit which works with the NHS to identify risks posed by ‘lone individuals’ who stalk or harass public figures.
A Scotland Yard source told The Sunday 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 big potential for some major embarrassment for the royals. Samantha could make a scene and create headlines with her actions — and let’s face it she’s kind of already done that.’
Earlier this month, Samantha sent a Christmas card to Meghan telling her the ‘time was now’ to ‘end the rift’ with her estranged father Thomas.
She wrote: ‘Dad has been trying to contact you and is very hurt because you are avoiding him.’
