Meghan Markle's "obsession" with Princess Diana is "a little bit eerie" according to her half-sister Samantha Markle.
Speaking exclusively with Dan Wootton on GB News, Samantha claims there have been comments and remarks made by Meghan which "evoke the death of Diana".

It comes after Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and her mother Doria were involved in a "near catastrophic car chase" involving paparazzi according to a spokesperson for the Duke of Sussex.
Following the incident, Samantha has hit back saying Meghan should not be acting "like the victim".
"Oh my goodness from the stories of wearing Diana's perfume on their first date to being seen in photographs mimicking her every move to reportedly even in Spare channelling Diana and putting her hands on stones.
"I think there seems to be an obsession, let's not forget the lifetime drama escaping the palace, when at the end of the drama she is depicted dying similarly to how Diana did.
"Now if that's not a little bit eerie and that's not a little bit obsessed then please tell me what is.
"I think all along there have been indictors, comments, remarks, complaints reaching out to evoke the death of Diana, tragically, sadly this poor woman Princess Diana is being evoked for convenience seemingly every time Harry and Meghan don't get their way or they want a PR opportunity."
According to the couple's spokesperson, Harry and Meghan were involved in a car chase incident with half a dozen cars with blacked out windows, driving dangerously and putting their lives in danger.
However, Samantha has questioned where the Duke and Duchess got the term "near catastrophic when there was no impact".
"How is it near catastrophic? Because you're imagination says so? And I guess for some getting out of bed can be catastrophic because you never know what is going to happen by the end of the day.
"So it all just seems so dramatic and far fetched."
In a statement, the New York Police Department (NYPD) confirmed an incident took place and said that numerous photographers "made their [Harry and Meghan's] transport challenging."

But no injuries or arrests have been reported.
The full statement from Harry and Meghan's spokesperson said: "Last night, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and Ms Ragland were involved in a near-catastrophic car chase at the hands of a ring of highly aggressive paparazzi.
“This relentless pursuit, lasting over two hours, resulted in multiple near collisions involving other drivers on the road, pedestrians and two NYPD officers.
“While being a public figure comes with a level of interest from the public, it should never come at the cost of anyone’s safety.
“Dissemination of these images, given the ways in which they were obtained, encourages a highly intrusive practice that is dangerous to all involved.”
