But did she even listen to the interview?

After becoming the first Royal fiancée to attend Christmas with the Queen at Sandringham, it seems that Meghan Markle is making good impressions with everyone.

Unlike other half, Prince Harry, who seems to have unwittingly managed to upset Meghan’s family.

The Prince was talking during an interview with Radio 4 when he made a comment calling the Royals “the family she never had”.

Of course that’s not how he meant it at all if you actually listen to the chat, but it seems a relative of Meghan has only seen what the press have picked up on and not listened to the interview at all.

Prince Harry was asked by BBC presenter Sarah Montague whether there were any family traditions that needed to be explained to his fiancée, to which the 33-year-old Prince replied:

“Oh plenty. I think we’ve got one of the biggest families that I know of, and every family is complex as well.

“No look, she’s done an absolutely amazing job. She’s getting in there and it’s the family I suppose that she’s never had.”

Harry’s comments were taken out of context by Meghan’s half sister Samantha Grant, and she took to social media to tell the world what she thought.

Meghan’s mum and dad, Doria and Thomas, divorced when she was six and Samantha is her half sister from her father’s previous marriage.

The Prince and his partner spent their first Christmas as an engaged couple with Prince William and his family, an Harry revealed that they spent it “running around with the kids”.

The Queen even seemed to give the couple the Royal seal of approval during her Christmas Day speech.

She revealed that she and the Duke of Edinburgh “look forward to welcoming new members into [our family] next year,” and a picture of the newly engaged couple was seen alongside new pictures of Prince George and Princess Charlotte, as well as pictures of The Queen and Prince Phillip.
