The Diary of Princess Pushy's Sister
About this deal
The autobiography is expected to be critical of Meghan’s alleged treatment of her father, Thomas Markle, and other relatives. It seems like Samantha’s book rehashes a lot of the sentiments she’s already expressed on social media, but perhaps the most explosive allegation is that the British royal family wanted to help Thomas and Meghan “rejected the idea.” “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,” Samantha 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.” According to an insider, Meghan Markle is quite upset by news of Samantha’s book, but “won’t act bothered in public.”

Markle is suing them for publishing the contents of an anguished letter she sent to her father after her wedding, before which he blabbed about her to the media and conspired with paparazzo to stage fake candids of himself.It begins with my life, my family, my love of theatre and television and how I got there,” said Markle, father to Meghan and the book-writing Samantha. “Then my life with Meghan, growing up, her school days until she went off to college, and when her career began.” Samantha’s PR push about her book occurs just as news emerges that the father she shares with Meghan, Thomas Markle, is making a documentary about his life and his daughter. In the dedication to the book, Samantha says that her family ‘collided with history in an unexpected but relatable way’.

Unfortunately, Thomas Sr. and Doria’s marriage didn’t last long and they divorced in 1987. While Meghan and Thomas Sr. maintained their close bond throughout most of her adult life, the father-daughter duo had a falling out shortly before Meghan’s royal wedding to Prince Harry in May 2018 and have been estranged ever since. According to the description of the book in its press release, she claims that when it comes to Meghan ‘things are not always as they seem’ and sometimes the ‘truth is stranger than fiction’. Defending her book’s integrity to Newsweek, Meghan Markle’s half sister Samantha insisted, "The book is insightful and relatable and with so much going on in the world today I think there is something in the book for everyone who seeks truth and a sense of humanity.”
Speaking with Newsweek, Samantha insisted, "How could they possibly know what's in my book if they haven't read it? Because of a title? We all know you can't judge a book by its title or cover. Most reasonable and intelligent people, across generations, will find value in my book.” Meghan Markle is famously estranged from her father, after he was highly indiscreet about her with the press during the lead-up to her wedding, and also from her book-writing half-sister Samantha. Doria and Thomas went on to welcome one child together, daughter Meghan, in August 1981. Samantha, who was 16 years old at the time of her half-sister’s birth, reflected fondly on Meghan’s baby years.
