Samantha Markle (also known as Samantha Grant) is the daughter of Meghan Markle's father and the actress' half-sister.

Meghan Markle's engagement to Prince Harry was announced on Monday.

The royal family have announced that they will pay for the May wedding at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle.

Ms Markle, an American actress perhaps most famous for her role as Rachel Zane on the legal drama Suits, also says she intends to become a British citizen.

Samantha, a 52-year-old former actress and model, has announced she will be writing a memoir of their shared memories during childhood, called The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister.

Samantha says she's on good terms with her half-sister.

She told Good Morning Britain:

Well, it is true that I’m writing a book and the title is accurate, what is not true [is] this unbelievable swell that’s been created that it’s some sort of slamming ‘tell-all.

First of all, it’s only a tell-all in that I go through and recant some of the beautiful nuances of our lives, our family home. But more importantly, it has to do with the inter-racial evolution of this country through the lens of my life and my family since the Civil Rights Act until present, and how that intersects with this recent event with my sister, you know, my feelings about it, my family’s feelings about it, and how sad it was going through it all. But it’s more of a beautiful, warm, witty story of our lives and my life.

Meghan Markle has yet to comment on the memoir or its title.

Samantha Markle was roundly criticised by viewers for her appearance on the programme.
