Meghan Markle’s estranged sister has revealed her plans to ‘overshadow’ the royal by releasing a tell-all book to coincide with the birth of her baby.

Samantha Markle has been teasing her exposé for months, and says she won’t ‘hold back’ on details about what Meghan — who married Prince Harry in May — is really like.

“The world does not know truth total truth… (I’m) holding nothing back,” she told the Daily Star. 

She goes on to reveal that the book will be called ‘In The Shadows Of The Duchess’, and states it will deliberately be released at the same time the 37-year-old is due to give birth next year. 

Talk about ruthless.

All the details

“The book covers everything that goes on behind the scenes that the world does not know and trust me there is a lot,” Samantha, who has never been shy about dragging her sibling’s name through the mud, said. 

She also went on to explain that she has experienced months of cyberbullying and planned to address that in the tell-all too.

Samantha’s announcement comes after she spent much of this year public berating the Duchess of Sussex and the royals in TV interviews and controversial tweets.

Changing her tune

However, the 57-year-old recently said she’d changed her tune and apologised to her sister following the announcement she was expecting.

“A baby changes everything and softens everyone,” the half-sister told The Sun last month. “I would only hope that there would be some adjustment or some way of including him.”

Her plans for a book spilling private details from her life may not help make amends though.
