Meghan Markle’s sister admits she doesn’t have her phone number

’s half-sister is determined to congratulate the happy couple on their nuptials but admitted she does not even have the bride’s phone number.

Samantha Grant, 53, was not invited to the Windsor wedding but said she did not feel snubbed as no one on Meghan’s father or mother’s side were at the big day.

She told Australian radio station 2DayFM: ‘I’m hoping that after they’ve had their honeymoon and settled in, we’ll have time to communicate by phone.’

When pressed on whether she had Meghan’s phone number, she said: ‘I will probably arrange that through my father.’

She added: ‘When things settle down I will hopefully be able to share with her my wishes. She’s my baby sister and I love her and I was so proud to watch her having that happy moment, it was so beautiful and real.’

Samantha explained her father Thomas Markle would have loved to have walked his daughter down the aisle but was also grateful Prince Charles was on hand to escort Meghan.

Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland was the only member of her family to attend on the day.

Thomas, 73, had also been invited but pulled out as he needed heart surgery, and following a row over staged paparazzi photos.
