With tensions already high between the Sussexes and the royal frontline, the book will be an unwelcome addition ahead of the Megxit review this spring. Meghan and Prince Harry will meet the Queen, Prince William, Prince Charles and palace officials sometime in the next few weeks to discuss the terms of their royal exit.
But this new book, which promises to expose drama and scandal at the heart of Meghan’s family, is set to cause concern for royal insiders.
Samantha has penned a 330-word book, titled The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister, which is due to be released later this month.
Publisher Barnes & Noble claims the memoir reveals “hidden truths about her family, as a royal fairy tale plummets from the tea towels”.
The description adds: “Things are not always as they seem, in a world where social labels define who we are, how we live, and how we view each other.
“Samantha Markle finds herself caught in between the cross hairs of media mayhem, when she reveals hidden truths about her family.”
But Samantha – who has been a critic of Meghan – insisted the Royal Family will not “be unhappy” with the book.
She told The Sun on Sunday: “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.
“I wrote it respectfully knowing they would see it and not concerned there is anything they will be unhappy about.
“I don’t know if she (Meghan) will be comfortable with it. Some things she will and some things she won’t.
“It’s fair and balanced. Naturally, some things she will like and some things she won’t.”
It comes as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are starting a new life in the US after quitting royal duties for a new life in the US.
