Just days before Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's royal wedding, Meghan's estranged half-sister, Samantha Markle, is being hospitalized for reportedly breaking her ankle and fracturing her knee.
TMZ reports that Samantha's injury is due to a paparazzi run in, while she and her boyfriend, Mark, were in Florida. "They were driving in Florida near a toll booth when they had a 'paparazzi confrontation,'" Mark told the news outlet. "He says the photog veered in front of them, trying to get a clear shot. Her boyfriend says he swerved to the left in an attempt to avoid him and hit a concrete barrier."
That's when Samantha hit the car's windshield and fell on the floor mat. Mark also added that her foot was twisted backwards. Samantha has MS and couldn't lift herself up. Mark would immediately drive Samantha to the hospital where she's still being treated. As for the paparazzo, he quickly retreated from the scene of the accident. This news comes right after the public learned that Meghan and Samantha's father, Thomas Markle, underwent heart surgery.
It's been a very wild week for Meghan, who's preparing to marry her Prince Charming in a couple of days. But, it's definitely going to be a great day, nevertheless.
