Meghan Markle’s half-sister, Samantha Grant, escalated a family feud with a series of angry tweets on her private account targeting the former actress.

“My father is not an embarrassment for loving his daughter! The Royals are an embarrassment for being so cold,” Grant wrote on Tuesday. “You should be ashamed of yourselves @KensingtonRoyal.” “How about you pay tribute to your own father?! Enough is enough,” Grant said. “Act like a humanitarian act like a woman! If our father dies I’m holding you responsible, Meg!”

Grant’s outburst occurred two days after Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle, told The Sun that he thought the new Duchess of Sussex looked “terrified” to be a royal and that she hadn’t spoken to him since the day after her wedding to Prince Harry.

Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo has been sharing the wealth after his blockbuster move to Juventus by leaving a mega £17,850 tip for hotel staff at a luxury Greek resort.

The Portuguese superstar, 33, will pocket £500,000-a-week in Turin following his £99million transfer.

Following his country’s elimination from the World Cup in the last-16, he immediately headed to the stunning Costa Navarino resort in the Pelopnnese region of Greece after their exit.

According to The UK Sun, he was that impressed with the staff’s service he left them a huge cheque as a tip to thank them for their services before jetting to Italy for his unveiling.

The Juve man has asked the hotel management to split the figure equally among all the workers.

Ronaldo met with Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli at the resort as he thrashed out his deal to join the Serie A giants during time away from relaxing with his friends and family.

A number of photos emerged of him enjoying the facilities as he dined with his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez and those closest to him on an outdoor table at one of the hotel’s outdoor restaurants.
