WEDDING IS RUINED!
When Prince Harry proposed to American “commoner” and Meghan Markle, it appeared as though fairytales do come true. A regular girl with a messy family dynamic and recluse father was flung into royalty and would soon become a princess. It seemed like a real Cinderella story until the former actress was busted in a big coverup and taking advantage of the royal family. Now, Markle must face the matriarch and Queen of England, who doesn’t seem too happy and the royal wedding set for this spring is now ruined.
The picture of perfection and elegance that this couple has portrayed over the last few weeks as they flaunt their love for each other from the states to the Royal Palace, has now been shattered as it seems like it was a front for something else. The American actress does what she’s apparently pretty good at and that’s pretending to be someone she isn’t. Markle made a claim that her prince fiance publicly supported her in, and now she’s paying the price for it.
When it was revealed who the soon-to-be princess’ father was, many people were taken aback his recluse lifestyle he at his home in Mexico – far from London. It seemed impossible that this man would be rubbing shoulders with the royal family and that he would be able to maintain any level of proper etiquette expected around the Queen or at a royal affair such as a wedding. The fact that Harry went rogue and picked a person without a pedigree was strange but celebrated since he was doing things his own way.
Showing his dedication to the woman he’s set to marry, he proudly announced that he was giving her the family that he supposed she never had. From the reports and pictures of the family she grew up in, it was easy to agree that he was giving her a traditional and intact family. However, Markle’s family just called her out on what they say is a massive lie.
As you might have heard, American Meghan Markle spent Christmas with her new fiancé, Prince Harry, and his extended family which just happens to include the future King of England. No pressure.
Anyway, here’s how Harry described it:
Prince Harry on Meghan’s Sandringham Christmas: “She’s getting in there and it’s the family I suppose that she’s never had.”

Ooh. THAT did not go over very well with Meghan’s half-sister, Samantha, who just happens to be writing a tell-all book on Meghan now that she’s going to be royalty and all, just like in a Disney movie:
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. Read my book complete with facts and photos

It’s fair to say that Samantha probably won’t be attending her stepsister’s royal wedding having pissed off the future princess, but good for her for defending herself – American style. This is real life and it was pretty tactless for Prince Harry to diss his future father-in-law and fiancee’s family publicly like that. True or not, it sounds like Markle had a pretty good upbringing, albeit not royalty, but that’s what Harry picked. It’s just a normal family and these spats are part of it. Welcome to America, where most families aren’t royalty and a good portion of them are complicated with divorces and re-marriages – it’s still a family.
This kind of drama surely won’t sit well with the Queen who is accustomed to keeping appearances buttoned up and proper. We’re all for a regular girl with a complicated family, making something amazing of her life, but she shouldn’t forget where she comes from. What’s truly in “poor taste” is to disregard and ditch your family you had an entire life with because you found a better one.
According to Fox News:
Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland, and father Tom Markle divorced in 1987 when the actress was 6 years old.
In addition to Grant, Markle has a half-brother, Thomas Markle Grant Jr.
The “Suits” actress reportedly has an estranged relationship with her older sister, and Samantha Grant is shopping a tell-all about growing up with Markle.
Grant has spoken ill of Markle in the past saying, “Hollywood has changed her. I think her ambition is to become a princess… The truth would kill her relationship with Prince Harry.”
Markle and the prince are set to marry on May 19 at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
The couple announced their engagement on Nov. 27. Harry proposed with a ring he designed which included two diamonds from the late Princess Diana’s jewelry collection. The main stone was sourced from Botswana.
They met after they were set up on a blind date by a mutual friend in July 2016.
Harry said during their first post-engagement interview he fell in love with the actress “so incredibly quickly” and felt like the “stars were aligned.”
Well, Harry, falling in love with the girl means accepting everything about her, including her upbringing. You don’t just marry her, you join families and at a minimum should at least show some respect to the man who brought the love of your life into this world.
This goes for Meghan as well who seemed to be quick to ditch the commoners for Hollywood royalty and then real royalty. Keep it classy, Megs, and remember where you came from!
