Meghan Markle's half-sister unimpressed by Prince Harry's 'family she never had' remark

In this BBC handout photograph released on Wednesday, Dec. 27, 2017, Britain's Prince Harry, centre, poses for a photo with presenters Justin Webb and Sarah Montague in the studio for the Radio 4 Today programme which he has guest edited, in London.

"There's always that family part of Christmas [where] there's always that work element there as well, and I think together we had an awesome time", Harry said. "No look, she's done an absolutely unbelievable job".

In the past, Samantha Markle has criticised her famous half-sibling via Twitter about her lifestyle website The Tig, which the actress has since ended.

Still others think that Samantha is just using any opportunity she can get to plug her tell-all book. Her sister argued that the bride-to-be actually has a large family and no one was estranged.

Meghan's mum and dad, Doria and Thomas, divorced when she was six and Samantha is her half sister from her father's previous marriage.

In a follow-up tweet, she added, "Meg's family (our family) is complete with sister, brother, aunts, uncles, cousins, and the glue of our family, our wonderful, completely self-sacrificing father".

The Sun has also reported that Grant is planning to star in a reality TV show and is going to write a tell-all book that her half-sister might not like titled "The Diary of Princess Pushy's Sister".

"It's lovely, but I have to say I think what's more important to our family, and certainly to her, is that you find the person that's the best fit for you, that you love, that really makes you happy", Samantha said. "Our dad is awesome and completely self sacrificing. How fun it was!" It is therefore unclear whether or not Grant will be in attendance when her sister marries the prince in May 2018.

The Queen noted in her annual Christmas message that the family was looking forward "to welcoming new members into it next year".

"When I watch her with him it's very real and normal", the 52-year-old former actor and model said.

Meghan ran her hugely popular blog - Tig - until closing it down in April when she and Harry became more serious.

"The family loved having her there". Earlier this month, the prince went boar hunting in Germany while Meghan was reportedly filming Suits in Toronto.
