Royal Family News: Meghan Markle’s Sister Has ‘Vitriolic’ Memoir Coming This Month
British royal family news reveals that soon, very soon, Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex will be facing the truths of her sister Samantha Markle who is set to drop a tell-all book this month. The title of Samantha Markle’s memoir says it all: The Diary Of Princess Pushy’s Sister Part 1. The book is currently for sale in paperback through Barnes & Noble, which lists Barnes & Noble Press as the publisher; online, Barnes & Noble Press offers self publishing services.
It is set to be released on Sunday, January 17, just two days before one of Meghan’s infamous court hearings.
Now experts are telling Newsweek that it looks like Samantha is hoping to ride the PR wave sure to be generated by her litigious sister’s legal proceedings.
Royal Family News – Meghan Markle Has A Court Date
Meghan is suing the Mail on Sunday for publishing a letter she sent to her and Samantha’s father Thomas Markle Sr. She is said to be hoping that she scores a win without having to actually go to trial after a two day hearing, due to start on January 19.
In light of the timing of Samantha’s tell-all, royal watcher Ingrid Seward told Newsweek, “Books don’t usually pop out without quite a lot of planning. They don’t just suddenly say we’re going to publish it tomorrow.”
“They would have known that Meghan was having this court case for at least a year because we’ve known for at least a year. I’m sure going to the High Court, whether you’re there in person or not, will be very destabilizing anyway.”
Royal Family News – What Will Samantha Markle Have To Say About Her Sister Meghan Markle?
Seward says, “I’m sure the whole thing will be very tense. Even though she’s 6,000 miles away. The book would be just another vast unpleasantness. I should think it will be pretty vitriolic, but of course it will have been run by a lawyer, and you know how litigious Meghan is, so I should think it will be quite sanitized.”
Professor Tim Luckhurst, principal of South College at Durham University, who was previously head of the Center for Journalism at the University of Kent, told Newsweek that he expects the book will, “say some fairly ungracious things about Meghan,” but would benefit from timing the launch to coincide with the court hearing.
“I’m equally certain Samantha Markle is doing it entirely for her own interests. She is piggybacking on the trial rather than seeking to influence it from either direction.”
