The Markle Debacle Continues: Half-Sister Samantha Has Been Hospitalised

17 May 2018

Tom Markle Junior (Meghan's half-brother), that's your cue.

Her boyfriend, Mark, told the gossip site that the pair were driving near a toll booth when a paparazzi photographer confronted them, trying to get a clear photo.

According to the United States website, the incident happened in Florida.

Meghan Markle's wedding week has hit another snag - her half-sister has been hospitalised with a broken ankle and fractured knee.

He added that Samantha, who has MS and is wheelchair-bound, hit the windscreen and fell into the footwell but was unable to lift herself back up.

The former actress, who is 17 years old than Meghan, told editor Harvey Levin that she and her half sibling "do not have a relationship", and that it's been "strained" by the tabloids. Although we don't understand, we can only wish them well.

"[Meghan's] way out of her league to tell me that I can't speak", Grant told TMZ.

Markle's father already announced that he will not be attending the royal wedding following his controversial staged photos.

"I am in a wheelchair. But Meg doesn't have a relationship that I've seen with anyone in the family".

And for all the focus on HER flawed family, let's not forget, she's marrying into a royal family not above the fray of dysfunction either.

It's not a good week for the Markle family.

The news comes as the father she shares with Meghan, Thomas Markle, revealed that the heart surgery that was stopping him from flying to London to walk his daughter down the aisle was successful. "She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr. Markle in this hard situation".

Thomas had three stents placed in his blood vessels after suffering a heart attack.

He underwent the procedure yesterday and is said to be recovering well.

It's suggested Meghan's mother Doria Ragland, who divorced Thomas when Meghan was a child, could take on the role.
