Meghan Markle's half-sister went on a British talk show Tuesday to defend their dad against "media vultures" - and ended up getting an earful from host Piers Morgan.

With the media locked in a revolving door of will-he-won't-he surrounding Meghan and Samantha's father Thomas and his attendance at Saturday's royal wedding, the latter has been doing the rounds of TV talk shows to give rolling updates and explain her role in Markle's weird decision to stage photographs with a paparazzi photographer.

Ever since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding was announced, Samantha Markle's name has been splashed across headlines due to her controversial comments.

Samantha said she set up the photo shoot out of kindness "for the benefit of the royal family".

"My father has really suffered at the hands of the media".

But Morgan was having none of it.

Morgan fired back. "There's no bigger media vulture with this wedding than you", he said.

"Many of our viewers may have watched your activities in a year and half and think that you have treated your sister, Meghan, in a shabby way", Piers said referencing the fact Samantha is penning a book about Meghan called The Diary of Princess Pushy's Sister.

Samantha argued back that "I think lot of what you're reading is from tabloids, which are wholly inaccurate".

Samantha appeared on the show to defend herself and Markle's father Thomas, against claims he was trying to profit off the wedding by staging paparazzi photos for large sums of money only days out from the Royal wedding. "Doing a deal with the paparazzi knowing that they'd [Prince Harry and Meghan] be horrified".

His daughter blamed the "unbelievable" stress brought on by media attention for causing the heart attack.

The half-sister of Meghan Markle says their father has been put in a "dangerous situation" because of pressure from the press.

Piers added, "It seems to me her father, your father, has let her down".
