Meghan, who is primarily known for her role as Rachel Zane in suave legal drama Suits, has been the subject of plenty of headlines since it was revealed that she and the Prince were in contact ever since meeting in Toronto, Canada, and have even been photographed wearing the same bracelet.

‘Hollywood has changed her,’ she began. ‘I think her ambition is to become a princess.’

Samantha, who is battling degenerative disease MS, claims that Meghan, 35, has shunned her family in hopes of climbing the social ladder.

‘I am not sure how the Queen would feel about someone who shuns their own family.

‘Meghan is narcissistic and selfish. I think the Royal Family would be appalled.’

According to Samantha, Meghan has had her sights set on royalty since childhood: ‘It was something she dreamed of as a girl when we watched the Royals on TV.

‘She always preferred Harry — she has a soft spot for gingers,’ she told The Sun.

What’s more, 51-year-old Florida native Samantha claims that the gulf in their relationship didn’t occur until after her MS diagnosis, while Meghan was focused on making a name for herself in Hollywood.

‘I didn’t feel a separation from her until I was in the wheelchair,’ she revealed.. ‘The more high profile she became, she never mentioned me.’

Yikes. Welcome to the Royal circle, Meghan…
