Meghan Markle's sister Samantha says she'd rather slit her wrists than write tell-all book on Meghan
Samantha Markles says she will not interested in writing a book about her sister, Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex.
Samantha Markle has had a lot to say about her sister, Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex but it looks like she has had enough of it. In an interview with Breitbart, Samantha mentioned that she only wished Meghan with “absolutely happiness" after her wedding to Prince Harry. She went on to add that people had urged her to write a tell-all book about her sister but it isn't something she plans on doing.
“Everyone said, ‘Oh you should do a book that’s just a slamming tell all that is dirt because dirt sells,’ and I said I’d rather slit my wrists," she said, as reported by Daily Star. "My goal has never been to hurt my sister, it’s been to uplift her, and in my interviews, I was clear about what I loved about her, but the tabloids never printed those things…" Samantha insists that media deliberately left out the good things she had to tell about her sister.
“They purposefully omitted the good, because the good is not what sells," she said. “I’ve always loved her. Even though I’ve disagreed with some of the recent events which didn’t make sense…" Samantha insists that despite the difference in opinion with Meghan, she still loves and cares about her like the other siblings. “Just because you question or criticise siblings, doesn’t mean you love them any less. I want her absolute happiness," she said.
This comes after Samantha opened up about her thoughts on the royal wedding. Appearing on 'Ed, Grant & Em,' Samantha said that the wedding of Harry to Meghan was "heartwarming" to watch. However, she added that she hasn't spoken to Meghan even after the wedding. While Samantha had openly discussed her disappointment over the family not being invited to the wedding, in this interview she stated that she had made peace with it.
"No one on my father's or Dora's side of the family were invited. We really felt like you can't hold that against her," she said. Samantha revealed that she had purchased a gift for Meghan and she hopes to give it to her one day. "The traffic there would have been chaotic I was more comfortable watching it at home," she added. Meanwhile, when the host of the show told Samantha that she might have cashed in using Meghan and her memories, Samantha justified saying she had the right to.
"Here’s what’s fundamentally wrong if family and friends don’t make money, the journalist and tabloids are going to make money and they have less right," she explained. She also stated how much she has made out of it. "Well, uh, you know, I think it was obvious from the beginning … I still don’t have a wheelchair-accessible house so it’s not that much," she noted. "Just to give people a snapshot of how it really was — if I do one interview and they pay me $1,500, 10,000 publications will copy that and write their own story, that’s how it works."
