Meghan Markle was dad’s favourite and got best Christmas gifts, sister claims

Meghan Markle was showered with expensive Christmas presents by dad Thomas as she was his favourite, it has been claimed.

Half-sister Samantha, also a daughter of Thomas Markle Snr, said the Duchess of Sussex received presents fit for a princess as a child.

Royal biographer Andrew Morton says that Samantha always thought Meghan was the favourite of Thomas’ three children.

And because of that she would always get what she asked for at Christmas – no matter how expensive.

In his book Meghan Markle: A Hollywood Princess, Andrew describes how Samantha "often told the story of the time before Christmas when Meghan was looking at a jewellery catalogue and picking out a ring, which Tom Senior promised as a gift."


The book also claims that Meghan "teased her much older sister by saying that whatever her father bought [her half-sister Samantha], Meghan would receive the most expensive gift as she was the most favoured child."

Samantha Markle’s relationship with her half-sister rapidly broke down when Thomas Markle experienced bad health and had to miss Meghan’s Windsor wedding to Prince Harry in May.

In the end Meghan’s mum, Doria Ragland, was the only member of her family who was invited to the stunning ceremony.

The biographer’s book also says that Thomas Markle Snr bought his youngest daughter two sets of dolls of different races to echo her mixed-race household.

The biographer added: "He bought one with black dolls, one with white and mixed them together to represent Meghan’s own family.

"Then he wrapped them in sparkly Christmas paper and placed the box under the tree."

Samantha Markle, 53, is 15 years old than Meghan and is now estranged from her sister after blasting the Duchess in countless social media rants.

She has also promised a book called “In the Shadows of The Duchess”.

Samantha told The Daily Star: “In The Shadows Of The Duchess covers everything… the world does not know truth total truth… (I’m) holding nothing back!

“From lullabies to lies..it’s all they’re in my book."
