Why Meghan Markle's sister is unhappy with Prince Harry

Why Meghan Markle's sister is unhappy with Prince Harry

Meghan Markle's Christmas was a bit different. According to the newspapers, the 36-year-old star was said to be shortlisted as Daniel Craig's next Bond girl but her blossoming romance with Prince Harry ruled her out of the line-up. She always had this family... "She's getting in there and it's the family, I suppose, she's never had".

But the prince's comments struck a nerve with Markle's half-sister, who took issue with his phrasing.

Samantha and her brother Thomas Jr are the children of Thomas and his first wife Roslyn.

Samantha Grant, who is the daughter of Ms Markle's father, said it was a "very normal" household. "The children absolutely adore her", says the insider, adding that Meghan has also tapped her best friend, stylist Jessica Mulroney, to be a bridesmaid, while Harry's asked William to be his best man.

"Meg's family (our family) is complete with sisters, brother, aunts, uncles, cousins, and the glue of our family, our awesome self-sacrificing father".

Samantha told US Weekly that the Royal relationship has caused friction between the siblings and that the title of her book is a poke at the media: "It created some rifts with us, but people across the pond think we're mean people saying bad things about her, but that's not the case". Marrying merely extends it.

What is going on with Meghan Markle's family? During an interview with BBC Radio 4, the Prince stated that the couple had an "amazing time" and Markle was with "the family she's always wanted".

"These make my New Year's resolution list almost (AKA actually every) single year", she said. "How fun it was!"

Harry said: "It was fantastic". But the minute her relationship to Harry came to light they assumed she was out of the running so it soon became a list of four.

It's no surprise however that the young royal is looking forward to next year.

Meghan Markle isn't officially a royal yet, but there's already some royal drama brewing. She also plans on travelling around the U.K.to learn more about her adopted country.

The post about her resolutions was made on January 1 2016 - before she started dating the Prince, 33.
