Revealed: Samantha Grant Will Make Over $100,000 When Meghan Markle Gives Birth

Meghan Markle might be putting her best foot forward as the Duchess of Sussex and a member of the British Royal Family, but her paternal family certainly isn’t making it easy for her. Markle’s father, Thomas Markle, and half-sister, Samantha Grant are making her life miserable as they continue to speak to the press and spread rumors about her.

Not only have they contributed to the endless cycle of British tabloids about Markle, but they’ve also revealed personal details about the duchess’ life to the press without her permission. Now, Samantha Grant is poised to make over $100,000 when the duchess gives birth to her first child in late April or early May 2019.

How will Samatha Grant make $100,000 off the birth of the Duchess of Sussex’s child?

Despite her sister’s pleading, Grant has not stopped talking to the press because she’s been able to make a ton of money off of giving interviews. According to The Mirror U.K. –the duchess’ estranged sister is poised to make $100,000 when Baby Sussex is born. Grant will be paid from a combination of TV documentaries, chat show interviews, a book deal, and interviews. The duchess sister charges £2,000/hour for each appearance. A source close to the duchess’ half-sister told The Mirror,

Samantha has every right to celebrate the birth of her niece or nephew in spring and will talk about her connection to Meghan, as they are family. She does not have an outlandish lifestyle so the money will make a difference to her. She has never been given a penny by Meghan so she has every right to earn her own money in this way.

Inside Meghan Markle and Samatha Grant’s estranged relationship

Samantha Grant has been circulating a sob story with the press since the duchess went public with her relationship with Prince Harry. Grant claims that because she has multiple sclerosis and is wheelchair-bound –the duchess began distancing herself from her. She also claims that the Suits alum is a narcissist.

The Duchess of Sussex’s friends claim that the sisters were never close to begin with. By the time Markle was born in 1981, Grant was already a teen, and they did not even grow up in the same household. Sources close to the duchess told People, “They’ve been made to appear as siblings who were very close and then they had this falling out, and that’s not the truth at all. Everyone who knows Meg knows that the two of them have no relationship.”

Has Samatha Grant tried to make amends with Meghan Markle?

For a brief time, just after the duchess announced her pregnancy in Oct. 2018–it seems like Samatha Grant did try to make amends with her sister whom she has not spoken to since 2008. She traveled to London and attempted to hand a letter to one of the guards at Kensington Palace. She said, “Moving forward, I apologize and wish things could be different.” However, when the duchess did not respond, she went right back to bashing her younger sister.

Now, Samantha Grant is set to publish a tell-all book about the former actress entitled, The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister. So we doubt the pair will ever speak again.
