In what comes as surprising news, Meghan Markle’s private life is about to be exposed in a new documentary-come-reality-tv show. According to The Sun, U.K.'s Channel 4 has commissioned a show titled Meet The Markles, and filming is already underway.
A source told the publication: "Meghan is a hot topic right now, and everyone is interested in her. Channel 4 is going to go deeper into her past than anyone before. They want to discover new things about her family. It could be dramatic."
“Meet the Markles tells the story of some of Meghan’s ancestors and how she and Harry met,” the insider added. “The film also considers her possible future role in the royal family.”

Air dates for the show are yet to be released, but you can expect to tune in later this year.
The news comes just months after it was revealed that Meghan’s half-sister, Samantha Grant, would soon publish a tell-all book about the princess-in-waiting—as she has become known.
“My book deals with my bi-racial family in a candid, warm, personal, and socially important way,” Grant told U.K.'s Daily Star. “Maybe when Meghan is more mature and reads the book, she’ll understand. Some of it she won’t like, some of it she might.”

The publication revealed that the current working title is The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister.
“It’s not a threat; it’s a fact and a good book. Just wait and see,” Grant tweeted following the announcement.
Samantha, 51, who suffers from multiple sclerosis and is wheelchair bound as a result, shares the same father—Tom Markle—with Meghan. The mother-of-three, who claims to have helped raise Meghan, believes her sibling has always had royal ambitions, musing, “Her behavior is certainly not befitting of a royal family member," before adding she was driven by “social climbing."
“Hollywood has changed her. I think her ambition is to become a princess," Grant continued. "It was something she dreamed of as a girl when we watched the royals on TV. She always preferred Prince Harry—she has a soft spot for gingers.”
