CLAIMS by Meghan that Palace aides told her she should not invite her niece to her royal wedding were dismissed as “complete lies” tonight.
She told Netflix viewers that Ashleigh Hale — the daughter of her half-sister Samantha Markle — was like a “little sister” to her.
But she claimed Kensington Palace’s press office told her Ms Hale should not be among the guests.
However sources said yesterday that her press team was desperate for Meghan to have more family and friends at the wedding.
One said: “It’s a complete lie. Meghan said she didn’t want her exposed to the media.”
Samantha had been hugely critical of Meghan in the run-up to the nuptials.

She said: “They just couldn’t wrap their head around it and I have compassion for it.
“How do we explain that this half-sister isn’t invited to the wedding, but that the half-sister’s daughter is?”
“And so, with Ashleigh, the guidance at the time was to not have her come to our wedding.
