Meghan Markle’s alf-sister Samantha Grant ‘regrets title of her book’

‘It’s not cashing in to share fond feelings and memories’: Meghan Markle’s estranged half-sister Samantha Grant hits back at claims she’s ‘selling out’ her sibling in her first post-Royal Wedding interview

Meghan Markle’s half-sister Samantha Grant has certainly been vocal in the media in the past year when it comes to the topic of her estranged sibling.

And now, in her first interview since the wedding, Samantha says she has ‘the right’ to share her memories and photos of Meghan, but does regret the title of her book, The Diary Of Princess Pushy’s Sister. 

The 53-year-old spoke to Australian radio station 2DayFM, telling hosts Em, Grant and Ed, ‘I do regret the title of my book.’

Right to speak: In her first interview since the wedding, Samantha Grant says she has ‘the right’ to share her memories and photos of Meghan Markle 

The former actress added, however, that she does not feel she’s unfairly made money off her sister’s back.

‘It’s not off her, it’s off my personal photos that I was in, so if they’re my memories, my life experiences, my photos, I certainly have more right to make money off them than any journalists,’ she told the radio hosts.

The mother-of-three added, ‘It’s not cashing in, to share fond feelings and memories.

‘Here’s what’s fundamentally wrong – if family and friends don’t make money, the journalist and tabloids are going to make money and they have less right.’

Her memories too: ‘If they’re my memories, my life experiences, my photos, I certainly have more right to make money off them than any journalists,’ she said

The 53-year-old did admit however: ‘I do regret the title of my book’ which is titled The Diary Of Princess Pushy’s Sister

Pressed on how much money she had made giving interviews, Samantha declined to give a sum but said it was ‘not much’.  

‘I still don’t have a wheelchair-accessible house so it’s not that much,’ she told the radio hosts, before adding a hint as to how much she does in fact charge. 

‘Just to give people a snapshot of how it really was, if I do one interview and they pay me $1500, (then) 10,000 publications will copy that,’ she said.

Tuning in: Samantha went on to reveal that she watched Meghan and Harry’s wedding on television at home in Florida

Samantha went on to reveal that she watched Meghan and Harry’s wedding on television at home in Florida, and admitted she hopes that Meghan will take a phone call from her once she returns from her honeymoon with Harry.    

She said: ‘When things settle down I will hopefully be able to share with her my wishes and the gift that I got for her. I think that everything will come full circle.’  

The estranged sibling however admitted she doesn’t have Meghan’s phone number and would have to ask their father, Thomas Markle, to provide it for her.

Samantha concluded: ‘I will probably arrange her number from my father.’
