The princess-to-be's parents are divorced, and she is not in contact with some members of her extended family, which include her half-sister, Samantha Markle. That doesn't stop Samantha from commenting on anything and everything she does. She immediately jumped onto Twitter to deny any suggestion that Meghan doesn't have a family who would enjoy spending Christmas with her (while also promoting her book, The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister). "Actually she has a large family who were always there with her and for her," Samantha tweeted. "Our household was very normal and when dad and Doria [Meghan's mother, Samantha's former stepmother] 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." (Say what you will about Samantha, you got to respect the book pushing hustle.)
