Oh no.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced the news that they were expecting a baby last year, with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex expected to welcome their newborn in the spring of 2019.

But, while fans, high profile figures and extended family members spoke out of their excitement about the future arrival, Meghan's estranged half-sister, Samantha Grant, seemed to see it as a career move.

Yes, instead of giving the future parents a pram or some baby supplies, she decided to give the Duchess a gift she definitely didn't want - a tell all book about her. And to add salt to the wounds, she has chosen Meghan's due date as the release date.

This week, she shocked the internet once more as she announced that her 'tell all book' was actually going to come in two instalments, In the Shadows of the Duchess I and II.

'I couldn't help but let it slip! There are actually two books coming out!' Samantha tweeted to her followers, giving the hashtags #April and #June as release date hints.

'And you will love some of the pictures in my book also to refute any of your nasty troll gossip that we did not have a life together. I'm very much your sister and if you don't like it too bad. Bring it on. I think everyone should take a lie detector test.'

As far as baby gifts go, this one is pretty rubbish, and to be honest Samantha, a cuddly toy or a silver spoon may have been a better bet.
