Meghan Markle’s Half-Sister Doesn’t Think She’s ‘Cashing In’ On The Royal Marriage

Despite the fact that she's reportedly going on Celebrity Big Brother. *eyeroll*

The more we learn about the Markles, the more we’re completely unsurprised that Meghan couldn’t wait to be shot of them.

Despite being estranged from her for almost a decade, Meghan’s half-sister Samantha Markle seems intent on milking her new royal connection for all it’s worth. She’s publicly called Meghan a ‘shallow social climber’, admitted to staging paparazzi shoots for their father, and claims to be writing an autobiography entitled The Diary Of Princess Pushy’s Sister. Sounds delightful, doesn’t she?

Now, Samantha is rumoured to be in the running for the next series of Celebrity Big Brother, set to air next month. Page Six reports that the theme of the show will be ‘The Eye of the Storm’, with each of the housemates seeking redemption from media controversies.

But does she think she’s cashing in on her half-sister’s marriage? Well, yes, if she’s being perfectly honest. Samantha was on Good Morning Britain this morning to beseech Meghan once again to visit their father, and when asked if she was profiting off the newly-minted Duchess of Sussex, she said:

I’ve worked in media most of my life and in broadcasting. So because my sister is suddenly royal isn’t grounds for me to stop doing all that. Let’s face it, we all have to survive, money makes the world go round, so if you want to call that cashing in, that’s fine. But no one in media would refuse a paycheque for talking about the royals.

Maybe someone who genuinely loved and cared about their family would refuse it… but Samantha squares it all away by reasoning that the people interviewing her are profiting from it too.

“For someone to say, ‘Oh you shouldn’t take any money, you should turn down a paycheque’, go tell your boss you don’t want a paycheque for interviewing me because that’s cashing in,” she told GMB.

Whatever helps her sleep at night. Oh Meghan, we understand EVERYTHING now.
