Meghan Markle’s Estranged Half-Sister Samantha Pens Explosive Tell-All Book – Dad Thomas Is ‘Very Pleased’
Meghan Markle's estranged half-sister Samantha has penned an explosive tell-all book, and their dad is "very pleased" about it.
Meghan Markle’s estranged half-sister Samantha has written a tell-all book about her that is due to come out on January 17, and their father Thomas Markle Sr. is said to be “very pleased” about it.
Meghan Markle’s Sister Samantha Pens Tell-All Book
“Amidst a firestorm of fake news and media mayhem, Samantha Markle shares the truth about her life and family against all odds and ultimatums, as a royal fairytale plummets from the tea towels. Sometimes the truth really is stranger than fiction.”
Though the book will undoubtedly drive the wedge between his two daughters even deeper, Thomas said that he is supportive of Samantha’s decision to write it.
“I’m just very pleased that she’s accomplished this book,” Thomas told US Weekly. “Let’s let her talk to you about the book.”
Samantha had confirmed at the end of 2018 that her tell-all would be released in two parts.
“I couldn’t help but let it slip!” she tweeted in December of that year. “There are actually two books coming out!”

Markle Family Drama
Meghan and Samantha share a father but have different mothers, and the half-sisters have been estranged for many years.
Just after Meghan married Prince Harry in May of 2018, Samantha showed up outside Kensington Palace, trying to give the guards a letter she wanted delivered to her royal half-sister.
“Samantha was with one other gentleman who was pushing her chair for her,“ an onlooker said at the time. “They handed the security guard the letter and left and were there for about two minutes.”
Meghan rarely talks about the Markle side of her family, and after her father was caught staging paparazzi photos ahead of her wedding, she released a statement saying that he would no longer be attending.
“I have always cared for my father and hope he can be given the space he needs to focus on his health,” she said.
Meghan Embarrassed By Her Family’s Scandals
A friend of Meghan Markle’s told the authors of the 2020 book “Finding Freedom” that this scandal embarrassed Meghan.
“As much as she was hurt and humiliated, she wanted him to be there and was willing to move on,” the friend said. “Plus, she was worried about him; she honestly wasn’t sure if he was actually okay. His behavior was bizarre.”
Thomas has since become an outspoken critic of Meghan and her husband Prince Harry. He even publicly blasted them for stepping down as senior royals last year.
“I’m very upset with Meghan and Harry right now,” Thomas said. “I don’t think they have a right to use the word ‘royal.’ I don’t think they have a right to speak to the queen the way they’re talking to her. I think it’s an insult to the queen and to the British people.”
Samantha’s tell-all book is likely to be full of negative revelations about Meghan. So it is unlikely that the rift between her and the Markle family will be healing anytime soon.
