MEGHAN MARKLE: Sister Turned Away by Palace Security
Meghan Markle’s estranged sister tried to visit the new royal at Kensington Palace, but the family reunion never happened.
Britain's Sunday Mirror says Samantha Markle "flew to the U.K. determined to confront her younger sibling after a bitter fall out." Samantha "arrived uninvited at the home the Duchess of Sussex shares with Prince Harry" but got "locked in an embarrassing stand off with police guarding the gates."
In the end, she was forced to leave a note for her half-sister and leave the premises.
A source says, “This was a huge move on the part of Meghan’s sister to try to see her face to face and the fact she was turned away speaks volumes.”
Samantha has been on the war path since being denied an invite to the royal wedding.

BEN AFFLECK, JENNIFER GARNER: Sign Divorce Papers
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are closer to being divorce. According to TMZ, the two have signed their papers, but the split isn't final.
The gossip blog says Ben and Jen met at her home last week "for several hours to hammer out the remaining details in their divorce." They reached a final agreement and "signed on the dotted line to officially end things."
Now all the need is "approval to use a private judge who will then need to submit the docs to the court for the papers to get stamped." That should happen by the end of this year.
Jen filed for divorce in April 2017.
