The Duchess of Sussex has endured a stream of criticism on Twitter from Samantha since tying the knot with Harry.

But quizzed about her behaviour on social media after she slammed her sister on Twitter with bitter insults.

Speaking on Jeremy Vine’s Channel 5 show this morning, she defended her decision to criticise her sister and said she wanted to “get a message across from my father”.

However, moments later she apologised to Meghan, 37, and said she would like to tell that there is “water under the bridge”.

Samantha said: “I would just say that there’s so much water under the bridge and so much has spun out of control that was never intended to.

“I think everybody was hurt at not being included or invited to the wedding.

“I felt it could’ve all been nipped in the bud had everyone been included and we all agreed to move forward with positive resolve.

“The hurt feelings wouldn’t have snowballed but, believe it or not, it doesn’t mean we don’t love you any less.

“I just think that families can be this way when there’s confusion and when people are hurt.

“So moving forward I apologise and I wish things could be different.”

Describing her dad’s health, she said he is unwell and that his breathing is “challenged”.

She also said she wants him to come to the UK and meet up with his daughter.

Samantha said: “I would love for him to come here. I was hoping they would whisk him over on a private plane (for the wedding).

“I think they were also concerned with his health but I think if things would have gone differently it would’ve been better for his heath hand better for her.

“I don’t think it was intentional, they didn’t understand what was going on and it had a horrible reciprocal effect. The hurt feelings continued.”

When asked about Prince Harry she described him as a true “gentleman” and added she is happy for the couple.

She added: “Harry is a such a gentleman and so savvy. I would say she has found her prince.

“As my little sister and being older I think ‘when I get older and pass away will your kids and siblings be in good hands’ and I’m very thankful that she’s in good hands – so I couldn’t ask for more.”

Jeremy also quizzed Samantha about whether she was jealous of Meghan because of her success as a top American actress and because she married a prince.

She replied: “Jealously, I hear that and it’s strange – it doesn’t really make sense. I’m so much older than she is and I had my opportunities and made my choices, you love your siblings and want them to do well.

“I was more hurt for my father . I was broken-hearted by the way things turned out. At the end of the day people are people that’s the way I’ve always seen it, as long as she’s happy that was what we wanted.”

Describing Thomas’ current condition after his heart attack, she added: “He’s 74, his breathing is challenged.

“All things considered, our days are always numbered but his perhaps more so.”

She also said she decided to take social media to discuss her sister and call her names including Cruella de Vil because she wanted to “protect” her father and give him a voice because he was becoming “ignored”.

Samantha also said that she would keep any discussion she has with her sister “private” and would not give an interview to disclose what they talked about.

Last month Samantha wrote on Twitter: “I am not candy coating anything anymore! The DUCHASS should be humane to our father who has given her everything,.. and this media crap can stop!

“He was the one who was always there for her. Fake waves and smiles can stop. The duchASS can bow to the daddy.”
