In the interview, Markle said she is entitled to talk about her relatives – and that no one would turn down a paycheck.
“We’re not subject to royal protocol. We’re entitled to share that and be open about it… If we can shed some light on issues for the public that’s great, we can enjoy the process,” she said.
“We all have to survive, money makes the world go around – if you want to call that cashing in.”
Suggesting the Duchess would be at fault for their 74-year-old father’s death, Markle took to Twitter to launch her accusation on her private account last week.
“Act like a humanitarian, act like a woman. If our father dies, it’s on you, Meg,” allegedly read the tweet by Markle.
According to media interviews, the pair do not speak.
“He is 74-years-old and we all know that life is short. So given the circumstances over the last several months since the wedding, I think he really just wants to embrace her, and have some closure on the distance, and the misperception and really let her know that he loves her. I feel that he deserves that in return,” she said.
‘Good Morning Britain’ viewers have taken to Twitter to defend the Duchess against her estranged half-sister, pleading with the broadcaster to stop giving Markle airtime.
So she denies cashing in. What the heck does she call what she's doing then? Providing a public service? Please @GMB, stop putting this woman on the show.

What a lovely family Meghan has, she must be so proud!!! Seriously, what family does this to their own child or sibling?? It doesn’t matter how famous their relative is, to sell stories & to keep giving such horrible interviews is disrespectful & low!
