Meghan's half-sister, Samantha Markle has reportedly suffered a broken ankle after a run-in with paparazzi in the United States, according to her boyfriend.

Samantha's boyfriend told the outlet that he was driving in Ocala, Florida, when a paparazzi veered in front of them. The boyfriend swung the auto to the side to avoid hitting the other vehicle but crashed into a concrete barrier instead. Samantha has multiple sclerosis so she was unable to pick herself up from the mat on her own.

He drove her to the emergency room.
