Meghan Markle may have been on cloud nine when she walked arm-in-arm with Prince Harry at Sandringham on Christmas Day but her father is far from happy this festive season.

The drama comes on the heels of Prince Harry's comments made on the BBC radio show Today where he said, "She's done an absolutely unbelievable job [adjusting]".

Having impressed producers with her work as Rachel Zane on "Suits", they were eyeing Markle for a role they wanted played by a glamorous actress who could become one of Daniel Craig's love interests in the upcoming "Bond 25", which is set for release in 2019. After enjoying a lovely Christmas with his close family members and his fiancee, Meghan Markle, the Prince is now facing some backlash for what he stated in a recent interview.

However, it was his next comment that has caused a stir with Meghan's family back in the US. "She's getting in there, and it's the family that I suppose she's never had". "He dedicated the majority of all his time and everything to her".

"He made sure she had what she needed to be successful and get to where she's at today".

But Grant, her half sister through Meghan's father, is furious at the Prince's comments, taking to Twitter to vent her anger. "We'd get together on Christmases, on holidays, on birthdays, on Thanksgivings..."

This remark was immediately contradicted by Meghan's half-sister, Samantha Markle (also known as Samantha Grant), who tweeted: "Actually she has a large family who were always there with her and for her".

"Her engagement effectively spelt an end to her acting career so that was the final blow".

Meghan Markle was reportedly on the shortlist to be Daniel Craig's next Bond girl. The family she never had? She always had this family. Coming to his father's defense, Meghan's brother Thomas Markle Jr.

Based in Florida, Samantha is 17 years older than Meghan and has been very outspoken their relationship went public.

Got a story tip? But the minute her relationship to Harry came to light they assumed she was out of the running so it soon became a list of four.
