British Royal Family

Meghan Markle's life to be exposed in a “dramatic” new documentary show

Keeping up with the… Markles?

By Candice Mehta-Culjak
Meghan Markle’s private life -- warts, royals and all -- is about to be exposed in a new documentary-come-reality-tv show.
According to The Sun, Channel 4 has commissioned a show titled Meet The Markles and filming is already underway.
A source told the publication: "Meghan is a hot topic right now and everyone is interested in her. Channel 4 are going to go deeper into her past than anyone before. They want to discover new things about her family. It could be dramatic."
“Meet the Markles tells the story of some of Meghan’s ancestors and how she and Harry met,” the insider added. “The film also considers her possible future role in the royal family.”
The show is rumoured to include candid interviews with friends and family of Meghan, 35, and is being made by the team behind BBC1's ancestry show Who Do You Think You Are?
Air dates for the show are yet to be released, but you can expect to tune in later this year.
We can't imagine Prince Harry and Meghan are particularly thrilled with the invasion of privacy.
The news comes just months after it was revealed Meghan’s half-sister, Samantha Grant, would soon publish a tell-all book about the princess-in-waiting -- as she has become known.
“My book deals with my bi-racial family in a candid, warm, personal and socially important way,” she told The Daily Star. “Maybe when Meghan is more mature and reads the book she’ll understand. Some of it she won’t like, some of it she might.”
The publication revealed that the current working title is The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister.
Meghan and Samantha share the same father, Tom Markle.

“It’s not a threat, it’s a fact and a good book. Just wait and see,” Samantha tweeted following the announcement.
Samantha, 51, who suffers from multiple sclerosis and is wheelchair bound as a result, and Meghan both have the same father - Tom Markle.
The mother-of-three, who claims to have helped raise Meghan, believes her sibling has always had royal ambitions, musing, “Her behaviour is certainly not befitting of a Royal Family member," before adding she was driven by “social climbing."
“Hollywood has changed her. I think her ambition is to become a princess.”
“It was something she dreamed of as a girl when we watched the royals on TV. She always preferred Prince Harry — she has a soft spot for gingers.”
The pair have not been on speaking terms since 2008.
