This news is just the latest in a string of events involving Meghan's family in the lead up to the wedding.

Samantha said the bride-to-be, who will become a member of the royal family in just three days, had no right to tell her not to speak about family affairs, The Sun reports. He claims that he had to swerve his auto to avoid a photographer and hit a concrete barrier.

Mark stated Samantha, who has MS, hit the windscreen and fell into the footwell however was unable to life herself again up. Mark says her foot was twisted backward and she was taken to hospital, according to The Telegraph. It's unclear how he was sure the auto was paparazzi and not just another Florida driver.

Earlier it was reported Thomas Markle Sr had successfully undergone heart surgery.

The paparazzo fled the scene, and E.R. doctors are now treating Samantha.

Reports suggest the procedure has been completed and Thomas is alert and coherent, telling TMZ he believed doctors had implanted three stents in his blood vessels.

The staged photos also come after Kensington Palace issued a statement weeks ago pleading for Mr Markle's privacy to be respected after the American claimed he was being "harassed" by the paparazzi.

Piers shot back, "It's pretty rich coming from you, Samantha, to accuse media of being vultures..." You're doing a book called The Diary of Princess Pushy's Sister.

Her half-brother Thomas Jr even wrote an open letter to Prince Harry, telling the 33-year-old royal to call off the upcoming nuptials, blasting it as a "fake fairy tale". Ouch! That probably hurt more than the broken ankle.
