Meghan Markle's Family Drama Escalates Just in Time for the Royal Wedding

Meghan Markle's Family Drama Escalates Just in Time for the Royal Wedding

Ever since Meghan Markle's engagement to Prince Harry was announced, we have heard more from Meghan's half sister, Samantha Markle, than we have from basically anyone else connected to the couple.

In an interview with Glamour in 2016, Markle hadn't met Harry yet, but she had wedding dresses on the brain.

It's her special moment.

Aside from her gown on Suits, a plunging V-neck with an A-line skirt by Anne Barge, the soon-to-be Duchess has been married before, and her first wedding may be yet another clue to her aisle style.

On top of all of this, a woman has come forward saying she was paid $130,000 by Trump's lawyer to stay quiet on a past encounter with the real estate mogul. When you're becoming a royal, a full skirt feels apropos, if not a requirement.

She said: "That's her day". And I would love to be a part of it. He also wouldn't say if former President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama, who are close friends of Prince Harry, would be coming, saying: "I don't know about that". I'm really glad we had this conversation. "I tried. But I think she just got really busy".

She also recently made comments about that $US75,000 ($95,000) dress Markle wore for her engagement announcement photos with Prince Harry. Yes, really. However, now that the royal wedding preparations are underway, Samantha is begging Meghan for forgiveness. "It's not fair that she looked that good in high school. She's getting in there and it's the family I suppose that she's never had".

"Our household was very normal and when dad and Doria divorced, we all made it so it was like she had two houses. LOL", wrote one fan, while another enthused: "She's handsome!"

Samantha also opened up about previously urging Meghan to help their father out financially, while the American actress was making money.

Whether she is invited or not, Ms Grant approves of her half sister's royal love match, telling the Mirror that Harry is "quirky and cute, and perfect" for Markle.

"Thomas Jr's ex-wife Tracy Dooley has said that he is so "happy and proud" of his half-sister and wants the best for her".
