SAMANTHA Markle says her estranged sister, Meghan Markle, will be walked down the aisle by their father when she marries Prince Harry.

Us Weekly had reported that the former Suits actress wanted her mum, Doria Ragland, 61, to give her away.

 

Markle reportedly tweeted that the future royal would instead have their father, Thomas Markle, by her side.

"Muck about Doria walking Meg down the aisle is NOT true. Our father will walk her down the aisle," she said.

It is yet to be seen if Markle will even be on the guest list, given she has been extremely critical of her sister in the press.

She has called her sister a "shallow social climber" who shunned her family when she hit Hollywood. She says her sister has not spoken to her since she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis nearly a decade ago.

Reports also indicate that Markle is writing a book called The Diary of Princess Pushy's Sister

Meghan is very close to her mother and Prince Harry has referred to her as "amazing" after meeting her.

He is yet to meet Thomas Markle but did call him to ask for permission to marry his daughter.

Harry seemed to have misstepped though when he said his future wife's first Christmas at Sandringham was special for her because it was "the family I suppose that she's never had".

Samantha Markle slammed those comments.

"Actually she has a large family who were always there with her and for her," she tweeted. "Our household was very normal and when dad and Doria divorced, we all made it so it was like she had two houses. No one was estranged, she was just too busy."
