Since news of Prince Harry’s relationship with Meghan Markle broke in the autumn of 2016, one family member on the former Suits actress’s side certainly hasn’t held back when it comes to sharing her views on Meghan’s royal romance: her half-sister, 52-year-old Samantha Grant.

Not only is Samantha, who has the same father as Meghan, gearing up for the publication of a tell-all book about Meghan’s upbringing, set to be titled The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister, she has also recently made some negative comments about her half-sister’s new public role. When Prince Harry described the royals as ‘the family Meghan]’s never had’ in a [radio interview over the Christmas period, Samantha was quick to hit back, claiming that Meghan had been ‘too busy’ to spend time with her own family. More recently, she criticised the actress her choice of gown in her engagement photos, claiming ‘if you can spend $75,000 on a dress, you can spend $75,000 on your dad,’ apparently alluding to their father’s medical bills.

However, in a new interview with the Mirror, Samantha seems to wish to wipe the slate clean, asking for forgiveness from Meghan and revealing that her forthcoming book is not intended as an unflattering portrayal: instead, it aims to do ‘the opposite,’ skewering the ridiculousness of ‘social perceptions and labels.’ Hmm.

‘The last time we spoke – when I heard her voice – was 2014, almost 2015,’ she told the Mirror, adding that, in light of her previous critical comments, ‘I can only say to Meg, “Forgive me.”’

When asked whether she’s likely to receive an invitation to the royal wedding, Samantha answered: ‘I don’t know… I don’t know if she’s going to feel my book is good. There’s a lot of misperception out there.’

‘I’d be lying to say I wouldn’t be hurt if I didn’t get an invite but that’s really up to her. That’s her day. It’s her special moment. And I would love to be a part of it […] It would be pleasing for us to be there and be invited. But it’s entirely her decision.'
