When news first broke that Suits actor Meghan Markle was dating the world’s most eligible bachelor, Prince Harry, there was one person who had a lot to say about the “true identity” of the 36-year-old star.
That person was 52-year-old Samantha Grant (who also goes by Samantha Markle), Meghan’s half-sister from her father Thomas Markle’s first marriage.
Samantha went public with claims her sister was “shallow, narcissistic” and was devoted to “social climbing”. She even began penning a tell-all book – titled The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister – about what life was apparently like growing up with the actress.
But now, almost a year after the claims first surfaced, Samantha is singing a very different tune, insisting she has been repeatedly misquoted.
"It is true that I'm writing a book and the title is accurate," she told Good Morning Britain in an interview.
"What is not true is this unbelievable swell that's been created that it's some sort of slamming tell-all.
"I just have to say, don't believe what you read in tabloids. You've got to remember that tabloids say incredibly far-fetched, horrible things about just about everybody."
