Meghan Markle’s estranged sister Samantha Markle might not have received an invitation to the royal wedding (and boy didn’t the world hear a LOT of her complaints about that one) but that didn’t stop Samantha from buying Meghan and Harry a wedding gift.

It turns out that despite Meghan and Samantha’s fractured relationship history, Samantha was still anticipating a wedding invite and bought her sister a special gift in preparation. And she still has it today!

Samantha joined the Kyle and Jackie O show this morning when she revealed that she did in fact buy something special for Meghan and Prince Harry despite not having the opportunity to give it to them.

“Now you didn’t go to the wedding so you didn’t have to cough up a gift,” Kyle said on air with Samantha this morning. “But did you have a gift in mind if you did go?”

“I still have it and I talk about it in my book,” Samantha revealed to us this morning.

For a while now we’ve been hearing about this autobiography that Samantha Markle has written that is said to be a tell-all of her life with Meghan.

While it was originally titled ’The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister’, following backlash she has since renamed the book ‘The Light In the Shadows of The Duchess’.


No matter the name, Samantha told us that in the book she talks about how she searched high and low to find the perfect wedding gift for Meghan and Harry and how disappointed she was that she never had the opportunity to give it to her.

“The gift is something very special,” Samantha revealed to us. “I searched high and low around the world, it was kind of a one-of-a-kind sentimental thing. That’s the big surprise in the book.”

Clearly she wanted to leave a bit of mystery so that we would have to wait and read the book to find out what the gift was, but Kyle and Jackie O wanted to know more.

“What was the gift though? I want to know what the actual gift was,” Jackie pushed.

We managed to find out a little bit more information, with Samantha revealing it is a collectable item that is reminiscent of her childhood with Meghan.

“It is a very special, old collectable from the 1950s,” Samantha told us. “She would know how sentimental it is. It’s something that I collected that she ended up getting and I found one that was special just for Meghan and Harry.


“It’s in my book and there’s a picture of it but it’s sad because I never got to give it to them.”

As for what the collectable item itself is, we guess we’ll have to wait for that book to finally be published to find out.
