Meghan Markle during her interview with Oprah Winfrey said that she “grew up as an only child” and wished she had siblings.
However, Meghan’s half-sister has released a never-before-seen family photo of the Duchess and her father as a teenager.
Meghan has half-siblings, but is the only child of her her mother. Her half-sister, Samantha Markle released the photo in other to counter Meghan’s claim.
During the interview with Oprah Winfrey, Meghan was asked about Samantha’s claim in the book she published and the duchess dismissed the claim.
On the book written by Samantha, Meghan said: “I think it would be very hard to tell all when you don’t know me.”
Speaking on how she felt about the book, Meghan said: “This is a very different situation than my dad, when we talk about betrayal, betrayal comes from someone you have a relationship with.
“I don’t feel comfortable talking about people that I really don’t know but I grew up as an only child, which everyone who grew up around me knows, and I wished I had siblings, I would have loved to have had siblings.”
Apparently, Samantha released new photo of Meghan and her family on Twitter, to prove that the duchess actually grew up having her siblings around.
In the photo, Meghan is pictures with her father, Thomas Markle Sr. and her half-sister Samantha but Meghan in her interview with Oprah Winfrey, said she rarely ever saw Samantha.
She said: “The last time I saw her (Samantha) must have been at least 18 or 19 years ago, and then before that, 10 years before that.”
She said they were “not close”, adding: “She changed her last name back to Markle, she was in her early 50s at that time, only when I started dating Harry, so I think that says enough.”
