As Prince Harry and Meghan Markle plan for their big day, which is set to take place at Windsor Castle on May 19th of this year, the Royal couple has unfortunately been in the midst of family drama. Markle’s estranged half-sister, Samantha Grant, has spoken to the media several times since the engagement announcement, presenting certain stories in a negative context.
Last month, Grant slammed Prince Harry on social media after the Prince referred to his large family as “the family [Markle] never had.” Grant shot back on Twitter assuring that their family was “large” and “not estranged,” like the media has reported.
Previously, Grant also spoke out against her sister specifically, "Hollywood has changed her. I think her ambition is to become a princess…The truth would kill her relationship with Prince Harry."
Markle’s sister made headlines again on Friday for her comments against the media. While blasting the media for releasing “false reports” about their family, Grant stated that her family is in “a lot of pain.”
According to Fox News, Grant said, “Their relationship was always good and it still is,” referring to Markle and their father. “Don’t believe anything you read in tabloids… It’s just not true. Those stories are written to create controversy and sell magazines.”
As reported earlier, Marke’s sister previously stated that despite contradicting reports, their father will walk Markle down the aisle on her wedding day. This specific wedding detail has not yet been confirmed by the Royal family.
"Now my father, when we see these tabloids, and it’s every day, we just roll our eyes,” Grant stated. “There are so many rumors, like Meghan doesn’t get along with her dad or he’s reclusive. He’s not. They talk regularly… Her relationship growing up with him was great. It’s still great now.”
She continued, “All of that perception created by the press is a horrible, despicable lie… It’s really unfortunate and it has caused the family a lot of pain… It’s atrocious. And if I’ve had billions of dollars, there are about 50 publications I would go after and sue… But I’m in a wheelchair. I don’t have time or energy to be doing all of that.”
Grant’s comments come shortly after it was revealed that she will be writing a book titled “The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister.” Grant denies that the book will be a “slamming tell-all” regardless of the title.
Markle has not responded to any of the remarks by her sister.
