Meghan Markle's Sister Just Called Out Prince Harry On Twitter, So Grab Your Popcorn

Diply 29 Dec 2017

Not too long ago, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced their engagement. Of course, becoming a royal meant a number of lifestyle changes for Meghan, the biggest of those being her integration into the royal family.

However, Meghan's half-sister, Samantha, seems to think Meghan has plenty of family already.

Let's start by saying that Samantha's relationship with Meghan has had its ups and downs — at least in the media.

During one interview with Good Morning Britain, Samantha seemed to approve of Meghan and Prince Harry's relationship:

"I can see she’s just bubbling," said Samantha, "It’s so charming and so warm."

But Samantha has also been at odds with Meghan.

In early 2016, Samantha seemed to feel snubbed by Meghan and wasn't afraid to say it.

As of late, however, Samantha is holding issue with Prince Harry.

Earlier this week, a royal correspondent tweeted a quote from Prince Harry.

According to Daily Express reporter Richard Palmer, Harry said that Meghan's Christmas with the royals allowed her to spend time with the family she'd never had.

But Samantha was not impressed by this comment.

Instead, she insisted that Meghan already had a large family, and that claims of her or any of Meghan's family estranging the future princess were false.

She then suggested Harry read her upcoming book (oh, the sassiness!), which is supposed to be a tell-all diary about being the half-sister of Meghan Markle.

But her retort didn't end there.

Samantha continued by reminding everyone of just how large and supportive Meghan's family is.

And that the royals aren't the family she never had, but simply an extension of her current family.

She went on to emphasize how close the family remained after Meghan's mother and father divorced.

Following the divorce, Samantha insists that their father was not only self-sacrificing (we're not entirely sure what that means in this case), but also that Meghan had then been welcome in two houses, presumably her father's and her mother's.

Meghan's parents divorced when she was six years old.

Her mother currently lives in the United States, and her father lives in Mexico.

Megan also has an older half-brother, who spoke on behalf of her father about Harry's comment.

In a recent interview, Thomas Jr. Markle discussed how shocked he was — as well as how confused his father would be — about Harry's statement.

"It was just a little shocking because Meghan had an amazing —an amazing childhood growing up," said Thomas Jr.

"She had a lot of family," he added.

"My dad would be a little confused."

When asked if his father would be upset by Harry's statement, Thomas Jr. said, "My dad was the biggest anchor in everybody's lives, as far as that goes, and the holidays were really important to him."

"Especially at Christmas and the holidays, she had Christmas at her mom's house, Christmas at my house, my dad's house..."

"As far as 'the family that she never had,' I don't get that," said Thomas Jr.

But it's difficult to play jury when we don't know all the facts.

We can't say for sure whether Harry's comment was offside, mostly because we don't know if Samantha and Thomas Jr. tell a story of the Markle family that Meghan concurs with.

What we can say is that there'll likely be more royal/Markle drama once Samantha's tell-all book comes out.
