Meghan Markle's sister Samantha spoke out after the duchess claimed she does not really know her during the CBS interview with Oprah Winfrey.


Meghan Markle's sister, Samantha Markle, spoke to Inside Edition to set the record straight after the duchess claimed she did not really know her during her interview with Oprah Winfrey.

During the tell-all interview, Winfrey brought up Samantha's book, "The Diary of Princess Pushy's Sister." Markle had responded and said that it would be hard to "tell-all" as her sister did not really know her.


Markle claimed that she and her paternal half-siblings from Thomas Markle had not seen each other for almost 2 decades, a fact that Samantha disputed.

During an interview with Inside Edition about Meghan's claims, Samantha said she did not know how Meghan could say she did not know her. She explained:

"I don’t know how she can say, ‘I don’t know her’ and she was an only child.”


Samantha provided photographs from their childhood and a photo of Meghan at her graduation in 2008, which disputes Meghan's claim that she had not seen her half-sister for 19 years.

In another clip from the CBS interview, Meghan claimed that Samantha only changed her name to Markle after she started dating Prince Harry. According to Meghan, this fact said enough about her sister.

Samantha has no sympathy for Meghan, who revealed that she had suffered from suicidal thoughts.

Samantha proved these claims to be false as she provided the outlet with documents that revealed she petitioned to change her name to Markle in 1997.


She also provided the graduation certificate that was made out to her as "Samantha M. Markle." She shared that she had the name longer than Meghan, saying:

"I thought that was kind of weird that she would say I only changed my name back when she met Harry. Markle has always been my name."


Samantha has no sympathy for Meghan, who revealed that she had suffered from suicidal thoughts when she was pregnant with Archie while living at Kensington Palace.

Her elder sister had said that depression was not an excuse to treat others as "dishrags" and treat people like they are disposable. Meghan discussed her father, Thomas too.

She shared that she had felt betrayed by her father for the paparazzi photo scandal that was released a week before her wedding as her dad had told her he had not spoken to the press.

Meghan explained that she would never imagine purposely causing her child, Archie, any pain. Her second child, a baby girl, is expected to be born later this year.
