Meghan Markle's half-sister, Samantha Grant, was taken to hospital Wednesday night after a vehicle crash following a confrontation with paparazzi, according to her boyfriend.

Samantha's boyfriend Mark told the outlet that they were driving in Florida near a toll booth when they had a "paparazzi confrontation". Mark allegedly swerved to the left in an attempt to avoid the photographer and hit a concrete barrier.

He continued by explaining that after the accident, Samantha's foot appeared to be twisted backwards.

TMZ reports that Samantha Markle was hospitalised following an altercation with paparazzi.

Markle's half-sister yesterday launched an astonishing attack on the U.S. actor just days before the royal wedding.


Grant apparently broke her ankle and fractured her knee, reports TMZ, which adds she has multiple sclerosis.

After news broke that Meghan Markle's father won't be attending the royal wedding due to a heart surgery - just days ahead of the nuptials to Prince Harry on Saturday - another member of the controversial clan landed in the hospital on Wednesday.

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. "A person has the right to say, 'Enough is enough.'" She then shaded "media vultures" who she claimed were "taking advantage" of her dad. You're doing a book called The Diary of Princess Pushy's Sister.
