Meghan Markle is reportedly "concerned" over her sister's plans to write a tell-all book about her.

The Suits actress (35) shot to international superstardom when her romance with Britain's Prince Harry was revealed last May, and her half-sister Samantha Grant (52) is keen to capitalise on the family's newfound fame.

Grant and Markle have the same father, Thomas Sr, from two different marriages.

Grant is allegedly writing a book entitled The Diary of Princess Pushy's Sister, which will reflect on her "bi-racial family in a candid, warm, personal and socially important way".

Their brother Thomas Jr has pleaded with her to "leave Meghan alone already", while her mother Roslyn has labelled the proposed claims as "bull***".

Roslyn spoke to DailyMail.com saying "she's just been trashing everybody in her life forever.

"I am very serious when I say she has dogged on Meghan forever. She has never liked Meghan and she's always been jealous of her."

Grant has been vocal about her dislike for the actress, once labelling her a "shallow social climber" when news of her royal relationship broke.

Thomas Jr was arrested in January after a drunken argument with his girlfriend, but the charges were dismissed out of court.

The humanitarian is close with her father, who regularly visits her in Toronto, where films Suits and reportedly knew about the relationship from the outset.

Meanwhile, it looks like her relationship is going from strength to strength and there might be some truth to rumours of an impending royal wedding as she is set to "move into" his Kensington Palace apartment, which is being renovated, sooner rather than later.

"He keeps popping round and asking when it will be ready," a source said.

"He seems in a real hurry to move in with Meghan."
