Prince Harry and Meghan Markle spent Christmas with Harry’s grandmother, the Queen, and the rest of the extended family — including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Prince Harry gushed about the amazing time the couple had together in an interview he gave after Christmas. He also explained that his family is like “the family I suppose that she’s never had.”
As LittleThings reported, Meghan’s half-sister Samantha immediately took offense to Prince Harry’s words and said Meghan has a huge family. But it wasn’t just Samantha who had something to say about it. Her half-brother, Thomas Markle Jr., also was taken aback by his words.
“It was just a little shocking because Meghan had an amazing, amazing childhood growing up and she had a lot of family,” Thomas told Daily Mail in an interview. “Especially at Christmas and the holidays, she had Christmas at my house, Christmas at her mom’s house, my dad’s house.”
He then went on to say that Meghan’s parents would be “confused by that statement.” He added: “My dad was the biggest anchor in everybody’s lives and the holidays were really important to him. So, as far as ‘the family that she never had,’ I don’t really get that.”
Neither Prince Harry nor the royal family have yet to make a statement clarifying what he meant. A royal expert told Inside Edition that he was “reacting to remarks Meghan’s relatives have made about her.” Hear her family’s initial reaction to Harry’s comments in the video below.
