Meghan Markle’s half-sister Samantha is set to finally release a tell-all memoir after years of touting her dysfunctional relationship with the Duchess of Sussex.
Samantha, 56, is set to release the bombshell book titled ‘The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister Part 1’ in the US next Friday, after announcing she was writing the memoir in 2016.
According to Barnes & Noble, the Duchess’ sister promises the 330-page tome will expose ‘hidden truths about her family, as a royal fairy tale plummets from the tea towels’.
Meghan, 39, who is currently living in her $14 million Santa Barbara mansion with Prince Harry, 36, and one-year-old Archie, has been estranged from Samantha for some time and has previously branded her claims ‘absurd’.

The book has been published by Barnes & Noble, with the description stating: ‘Things are not always as they seem, in a world where social labels define who we are, how we live, and how we view each other.
‘Samantha Markle finds herself caught in between the cross hairs of media mayhem, when she reveals hidden truths about her family.’
It also hints that ‘things are not always as they seem’ and sometimes the ‘truth is stranger than fiction’.

In February last year it was reported that Meghan burst into tears after discovering her estranged half-sister Samantha was planning to write a book about her.
The Duchess of Sussex felt she was being ‘taken advantage of’ by her sister, according to a close friends.

She announced last year she would be writing a second book which, like the first, which will be called, ‘In the Shadows of the Duchess’.
In August last year, it was revealed Meghan was ‘furious’ with members of her family after ‘absurd claims’ were made against her as her relationship with Prince Harry heated up.
Bombshell biography Finding Freedom, by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, claimed Meghan and her ‘estranged’ sibling had not seen each other in more than a decade, and had only bumped into each other twice since they were children.
