Meghan Markle's wedding week has hit another snag - her half-sister has been hospitalised with a broken ankle and fractured knee.

Samantha's boyfriend, Mark, told TMZ the couple were driving in Florida when they had a "paparazzi confrontation". According to Markle's companion, there was a photographer in the other auto and he was trying to get a good shot of Samantha and himself. Her boyfriend says he swerved to the left in an attempt to avoid him and hit a concrete barrier.

Samantha went on Good Morning Britain on May 15 and host Piers Morgan tore her a new one when she called the media "vultures". Samantha has multiple sclerosis so she was unable to pick herself up from the mat on her own. She insisted it was for the benefit of the royal family and not a cheap grab for cash.

"If it's about my life or my father's then there's something in this country known as freedom of speech", she started her rant in the above video.

The newlywed looked stunning in the attire, which was beautifully teamed with middle-parted hair styled into a no-fuss plait. Spike Lee's politically-charged drama received a 10-minute standing ovation from the audience at the Festival De Cannes .

Ms. Grant told TMZ she does not have a relationship with Meghan Markle, with whom she shares a father.

"And how do you defend yourself when there's no evidence, there's nothing beyond the created social label that creates the public emotional swell and when it gets that big it's overwhelming", Samantha added. As The Sun notes, Samantha has not received an invitation to the royal wedding on Saturday. "I'm not taking it personally, nor am I holding it against her".

Earlier it was reported Thomas Markle Sr had successfully undergone heart surgery.

She claims she persuaded their dad Thomas to pose for a set of lucrative staged photos that caused Kensington Palace embarrassment after it had asked for his privacy to be respected. It's not yet known who will escort the bride-to-be down the aisle at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. It will take a long time to heal.
