Let’s face it: newspapers all over the world will be dominated this year by coverage of the planned wedding between the man the UK calls Prince Harry and the US actor, Meghan Markle. So what is the one-time Suits star really like? Who better to find out from than her older sister, Samantha Markle? Interview: Jason O’Toole
Meghan Markle’s older half-sister is – pun intended – royally pissed off. Samantha reckons she’s being depicted as your stereotypical wicked older sister by tabloid newspapers. And she wants to, once and for all, set the record straight in this exclusive Hot Press Interview.
Samantha, who has the same father as Meghan, has suffered from MS for the past ten years. Sitting in her wheelchair in her Florida home, the affable 53-year-old invites me to pull up a chair to hear her side of the story. Remarkably, this is her first major in-depth Q & A since Meghan and the man they call Prince Harry announced their engagement to the world.
Not only does she believe her words have been twisted, but Samantha also claims that certain media outlets have shoved a fair share of them into her mouth too. She was once quoted as saying, “The Royal Family would be appalled by what she’s done to her own family. The truth would kill her relationship with Prince Harry, he wouldn’t want to date her anymore because it puts her in a bad public light.”
