Starting out as newlyweds is always an adventure! There are many big decisions to be made that first year, such as where to spend Christmas each year. It is not usually a simple choice to make unless, of course, one of you has a strained relationship already and you don't have a problem giving up that time. Prince Harry isn't even married yet, but may already be off to a rocky relationship with bride-to-be Meghan Markle's family back in the good ole USA.
When asked about his first Christmas with his new fiancée, Harry gushed about how wonderfully fun it was staying with his brother's family and then mentioned that Meghan was amazing and that, he supposed, "it was the family that she never had." That is wherein the problem lies. One would think that Harry should know better than bashing his future in-laws, but I don't think that was necessarily his intent.
One person that did take major offense at the comment was Meghan's half-sister, Samantha Grant. She took to Twitter to make sure everyone knew the "truth" or at least her version of the truth.
They say that there are two sides to every story and, according to Meghan, she was raised as an only child. Samantha is in fact 17 years older than Meghan and would have been out of the house by the time Meghan's parents divorced when she was six years old. So, it seems she may not have been as involved as she likes to portray.
Samantha also mentions in her tweets, that she is writing a book that may be titled, "The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister." According to Grant the book is not a tell-all but is about racism and how having a bi-racial half-sister changed her and is not actually about Meghan's life at all. So, why is she calling her 'Princess Pushy'? Here she is on Twitter saying what a loving family Meghan comes from, yet she seems more than a little unloving towards her. How's that for sisterly love and support?
Marriage is not always a walk in the park; there are many trials and compromises to be made. I sincerely hope that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are very happy together for many, many years to come and that they can learn to cope with the in-laws and all the drama surrounding their pasts.
