As we all know, Meghan Markle spent Christmas with Prince Harry and the rest of the royal family, an unprecedented move many thought was never going to happen considering what’s happened in the past (ahem, Will and Kate). But the holiday at Sandringham was a grand old time, with Harry calling Meghan’s first royal Christmas “fantastic” stating that “the family loved having her there.”
During that same chat with BBC Radio 4, Harry added that they had a great time staying with Will and Kate “and running round with the kids” and that Meghan is adapting to it all quite well, saying “she’s getting in there and it’s the family that I suppose she’s never had.”
Some people took issue with what Harry had to say, considering she’s quite close with her mother, Doria, as well as other members of her family. But we’re pretty sure Harry was referring to those who are eager to make a quick buck and sell whatever story they can on Meghan. Enter Samantha Markle, the actress’ half-sister from their father’s first marriage, who made sure to chime in the first chance she got.
She has a large family. She always did. Our dad is amazing and completely self sacrificing. We made it so that she had two houses. How fun it was!

Now, if this was the first time Samantha had come out of the woodwork, perhaps she would’ve garnered more sympathy. But she is literally writing a tell-all titled The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister so any feelings of the compassionate variety just flew out the palace window. Because, NO. This woman has been selling out Meghan and will continue to do so as long as she continues to benefit from it. Blood may be thicker than water but love is thicker than blood. We’re pretty sure there’s no love lost here.
Excited for my book coming out and wait until you see what our home life was like!
