Prince Harry recently gave the world some insight into his fiancée Meghan Markle's first Christmas with the royal family, but one member of her family is not pleased with his remarks.

"It’s the family that I suppose she’s never had," he told BBC Radio 4's 'Today' about their time together.

Meghan's half-sister, Samantha Grant, hit back at the young prince's comments in a post on Twitter.

"Actually she has a large family who were always there with her and for her. Our household was very normal and when dad and Doria divorced, we all made it so it was like she had two houses. No one was estranged, she was just too busy," she tweeted.

Samantha's comment got over 2,000 likes.

Meghan's half-sister also plugged her upcoming book in the tweet.

"Read my book complete with facts and photos," she added. 

Samantha's tell-all book about Meghan will reportedly be called 'The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister'. 

But she says the book does not set out to bash her half-sibling.

"First of all, it’s only a tell-all in that I go through and recant some of the beautiful nuances of our lives, our family home. But more importantly, it has to do with the inter-racial evolution of this country through the lens of my life and my family since the Civil Rights Act until present, and how that intersects with this recent event with my sister, you know, my feelings about it, my family’s feelings about it, and how sad it was going through it all. But it’s more of a beautiful, warm, witty story of our lives and my life," she told  'Good Morning Britain' in October.

Despite Samantha being a royal pain, Meghan continues to enjoy her new life in England. 

During Harry's interview with BBC 4 he revealed that Meghan had a fantastic time with the royals during the festive season. 

"She really enjoyed it. The family loved having her there. There’s always that family part of Christmas, there's always that work element as well, and I think together we had an amazing time. We had great fun staying with my brother and sister-in-law and running around with the kids. Christmas was fantastic.”

The couple released their official engagement pictures last week, and are looking forward to their wedding in May next year.

We doubt Samantha will be getting an invite!
