“Meghan’s response to that question, that she was raised as an only child, was obviously not meant as an objective statement that she had no genetic siblings or half-siblings.”

Samantha’s complaints about what is said about her in the book relate less to Meghan and more to her author Omid Scobie, her lawyers said.

“Meghan did not make the statements; it cannot be held liable for this. As simple as that.”

She claims the book caused “significant and irreparable prejudice, injury and damage” to her reputation.

Samantha denies many things written about her in the book, including the fact that she dropped out of high school.

Meghan’s lawyer had previously described the lawsuit as “unfounded” and she was being given “the minimum amount of attention required,” according to the Mail.

“Overall, Meghan’s motion to dismiss should be granted, as should her request for attorneys’ fees, costs and other relief.”

Samantha published her own book about her sister called The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister: A Memoir, Part One.

In it, she describes the Markles’ upbringing and their rivalry.
