A ‘tell all’ book written by Meghan Markle’s half-sister has been released in the United States.
Samantha Markle, 56, has written the memoir about their rocky relationship and rifts within the family.
The autobiography is expected to be critical of Meghan’s alleged treatment of her father, Thomas Markle, and other relatives.
The news that her half-sister was writing the book – titled ‘The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister: A Memoir, Part One’ – is said to have made Meghan ‘sick to her stomach.’
In the memoir, Samantha criticises her sibling for not postponing her wedding to Prince Harry after their father had a heart attack.
Promising readers that the ‘truth is stranger than fiction’ she also recounts their upbringing and the rivalries between the pair when their father was still married to Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland.
It contains chapters titled Markle Beginnings, When Grandma Said the N Word, The Queen Would be Appalled and Looking For Mr Right The Wrong Way.

The book was released in the US by Barnes and Noble and is currently out of stock online. Samantha and Meghan have not spoken in years and it is thought they last saw each other in 2008.
Their relationship was put under the spotlight around the time Meghan’s engagement to Harry was announced in 2017.
Samantha gave several critical interviews at the time and was quoted as saying ‘the queen would be appalled.’ She has since backtracked and complimented her sister.
The 330-page autobiography claims to expose ‘hidden truths about her family’ and Samantha’s perspective on why Meghan’s relationship with the Royals went wrong.
The new book is about the sisters’ upbringing
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’.
In the dedication to the book, Samantha says that her family ‘collided with history in an unexpected but relatable way’.
She writes: ‘Our lives have not always been easy, and no one is perfect. We have, laughed, agreed, disagreed, and forgiven each other, which is what makes families so special’.
