Meghan Markle's bitter half-sister handed a note to staff at Kensington Palace after she was denied access to confront the duchess in her own home.

Samantha Grant, who recently changed her surname to Markle, flew to London from her American home and arrived uninvited at Kensington Palace, where Meghan shares a home with Prince Harry .

She was accompanied by her partner, who pushed her wheelchair up to the entrance and demanded to see Meghan.

The 53-year-old, who suffers from MS, was then locked in an embarrassing stand off with police guarding the gates.

She eventually game up and handed a note over to staff instead.

However they refused to leave the area and instead spent time browsing royal merchandise from a nearby souvenir stand.

She was later seen laughing and holding Prince Harry masks up to his face.

The visit took place about ten days ago, two weeks after palace officials received a letter saying Samantha's behaviour would "escalate" if they did not arrange a meeting.

Royal aides are now believed to be considering how to respond to the latest in a string of embarrassments which have left Meghan red faced.

Samantha and Meghan's dad Thomas Markle have given a number of interviews about the duchess, and her sister in particular has made some very nasty comments.

The source said: "The ongoing feud between Meghan, her sister and her father has so far been played out in public interviews and communication across the Atlantic via aides and ­representatives.

"This was a huge move on the part of Meghan’s sister to try to see her face to face and the fact she was turned away speaks volumes.

"This is the closest Meghan has come physically to that side of her family since she married into the royal family but palace staff had clearly been instructed not to allow her access."
