Meghan Markle’s estranged half-sister Samantha just wrote a tell-all book about her called “The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister Part 1,” which is available now. In the book, she chronicles her relationship with Meghan, and reveals the final conversation that they ever had.
Samantha, 56, admitted to US Weekly that it had been a long time since she actually spoke to Meghan.
“Hopefully we can have a heart to heart,” Samantha said. “I want her to know I’m wishing her well and there for her. At the end of the day, I want her to know that the love is there.”
Samantha also tried to make it clear that she did not write the book “to put garbage into the universe” about her royal sister.
“Contrary to troll gossip and aggregate news rumors, my book has never been designed to attack my sister,” Samantha explained. “It’s relatable. There’s a lot to learn — the good, the bad and the ugly. I’ve been very forthcoming that I was never writing a hardbound tabloid. I said that two years ago, but nobody wanted to believe it.”
In her book, Samantha portrayed Meghan as being spoiled when she was a child, claiming that she got whatever she wanted from their father, Thomas Markle.
“I don’t recall ever hearing Dad say no to Meg, about anything,” Samantha said, adding that Meghan became more “demanding” of Thomas as she got older.
“He was paying for Meg to get a great education, and instead of showing gratitude, she was being belittling and controlling,” Samantha alleged, pointing out that Thomas paid for Meghan to attend Northwestern University.
Samantha spoke to Meghan for the last time in December of 2015, when she called her at her apartment in Canada.
“It seemed as though she was excited to hear from me,” Samantha remembered, blaming their frequent missed communication on their “completely different schedules” at the time.
When Meghan began dating Harry in the middle of 2016, Samantha said that she heard the news from Thomas, instead of from her half sister. Soon after Meghan started dating Harry, Samantha began to notice that “somewhere along the line, she had changed.” Their father noticed the change too, allegedly telling Samantha that “she’s not the same” anymore.
These days, Samantha is still angry about the way that Meghan treated their father in the lead-up to her wedding.
“After all was said and done, I heard through the grapevine, that the royal family wanted to help my father, and make sure that he was provided for, but that my sister rejected the idea,” she claimed. “I was furious with her, but more than anything, I was brokenhearted by knowing that he could’ve been comfortable, and safe, but my sister said ‘no.'”
