Samantha Markle, just as her and Meghan’s father, Thomas, have been continuously talking about the Duchess of Sussex on social media and on TV, which is why, the step-sister got in some trouble with the police royalty and specialty protection unit! Samantha was put on what is known as a ‘fixated persons list’ due to the fact that she represents a ‘reputational risk’ to the royal family, reports The Times U.K.
According to the outlet, Meghan Markle’s personal officers discussed with Scotland Yard’s Fixated Threat Assessment Centre (FTAC) about Samantha Markle and reached a conclusion as to what measures they would take if the woman attempted to reach her half-sister again in person.
The ‘purpose [of FTAC] is to assess and manage the risks from lone individuals who harass, stalk or threaten public figures,’ their official website reads.
This is the consequence of Samantha traveling to England back in October and stopping by Kensington Palace in order to try and give Meghan a letter.
She explained on TV before her trip that she was hoping to ‘sort of speak the wishes and thoughts and sentiments of my father, and hopefully get a message to my sister.’
So what exactly does Samantha being on this list mean for her and the royals?
The Times explained via a Scotland Yard insider that ‘Someone like Samantha presents a risk more than a threat. She isn’t committing criminal offenses, but she’s a big potential for major embarrassment for the royals. Samantha could make a scene — and let’s face it she’s kind of already done that.’
As you can imagine, Samantha disagrees, and she even told the outlet that the decision to put her on that list is ‘ludicrous.’
The woman insisted that she is not a ‘reputational risk.’
