She’s been doing the media rounds for months now, speaking out about her half-sister, Meghan Markle, and her fiancé, Prince Harry.
But after her latest scathing attack on the 36-year-old former Suits actress, Samantha Markle has reportedly been involved in a car accident in Florida and is now in hospital.
The 53-year-old is believed to have broken her ankle in the crash, which is reported to have involved a photographer in the other car.
Samantha’s boyfriend, Mark, is said to have been driving when the accident occurred and isn’t hurt.
Just before she ended up in hospital, Samantha gave a scathing interview, where she spoke from her car, slamming Meghan for asking her family not to speak out about her life.

“If it’s about my life or my father’s then there’s something in this country [the USA] known as freedom of speech,” she started her rant in the above video.
“She doesn’t have a copyright on that and she’s not going to tell me that I can’t speak about my own life or my father’s where it’s a matter of public self-defense because the media is disparaging us.”
Samantha went on, claiming Meghan’s ‘not qualified to suggest’ she keep quiet ‘under any law in this country’.
“This is not Great Britain. I am a United States citizen and that’s all there is to it. She’s way out of her league to tell me that I can’t speak.”
Samantha, who hasn’t actually seen Meghan since 2008, claims their relationship only became strained last year because of ‘what tabloids have said’.
Her hospitalisation and her rant comes just one day after Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle, was admitted to hospital for heart surgery.
Thomas had three stents placed in his blood vessels after suffering a heart attack.
It’s unclear how long he will need to stay in the hospital for, but it seems unlikely he will make his daughter’s wedding on Saturday.
