Meghan Markle is reportedly feeling “sick to her stomach” about the release of her half-sister Samantha Markle’s book.

Titled The Diary of Princess Puchy’s Sister Part 1, 56-year-old Samatha Markle - whom Meghan is not believed to have had any contact with for nearly 10 years - promises to spill a plethora of secrets about the Duchess of Sussex’s early life in the book.

An insider told In Touch that while Meghan is furious about the release of the book, she “won’t act bothered or upset about [it] in public”.

The source also said that Prince Harry is “totally supporting Meghan and doesn’t believe a word that comes out of Samantha’s mouth”.

Earlier this month, Samantha admitted that her book will make Meghan uncomfortable, however she claimed the royal family won’t ‘be unhappy’ with the 330-pager.

"There is something in it for everyone. It has been an interesting journey," Samantha told The Sun.

"It deals with my life and my perspective on several issues in the road as they intersect with this royal event in history.”

Samantha continued, saying that she hopes the world will love it, but added, "I think the royal family will like it and will enjoy it and nothing they should be uncomfortable with. I hope they find it warm, funny, honest and heartfelt."

Samantha, 56, is the eldest daughter of Thomas Markle, 76, and has not shied away from being a vocal critic of her half-sister. At one point she called her "a shallow social climber".

Meghan, 39, however, has previously shared her half-sister barely knows her and slammed her claims.

Meghan also fell out with her father, Thomas Markle, after he was caught setting up paparazzi photos just before the Sussexes May 19th wedding in 2018.

Since then, Thomas has appeared on numerous TV shows begging the Duchess to let him back into her life.

However, it’s thought Meghan was deeply hurt when her father released private letters she sent him back in August 2018.

In the letters, Meghan begged her father to stop ‘victimising’ her in public.

“Dad, I’m so heartbroken, I love you,” Meghan started the letter, which was published by the Mail on Sunday.

“I have one father. Please stop victimising me through the media so we can repair our relationship.”

In the letter, the Duchess spoke about her heartbreak at her dad and half-sister, Samantha Markle, exploiting her relationship for their personal gain.

“On a daily basis you fixated and clicked on the lies they were writing about me, especially those manufactured by your other daughter, who I barely know,” Meghan wrote in the letter, which was seen by the Daily Mail.

“You watched me silently suffer at the hands of your vicious lies. I crumbled inside.”

The former Suits actress went on to say that her heart was crushed ’into a million pieces’ by her father’s public interviews.
