The first hint of what could be bad blood for the soon-to-be married royal couple, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, has come at the hands, or should we say, the Twittering fingertips, of Meghan's half-sister, Samantha Grant.

She wrote: "Actually she [Meghan] has a large family who were always there with her and for her. Read my book complete with facts and photos".

Actress Meghan Markle was being eyed up by producers as a potential Bond girl before her relationship with Britain's Prince Harry was made public, it has been claimed. Marrying merely extends it", Grant separately tweeted, later adding, "She has a large family.

Meghan Markle might be set to become a real-life duchess in 2018, but she may also hoping for a couple of other things to see her through the new year. She always did. Our dad is unbelievable and completely self sacrificing.

"We had an unbelievable time staying with my brother and sister-in-law and running around with the kids", a besotted Harry revealed as he discussed his festive celebrations on the radio. "How fun it was!" she added in another tweet.

The petition is not likely to have an impact on a smitten Harry, who recently refused to take part in a Boxing Day hunt - for the first time in 20 years since he first took part - because Markle objects to the blood sport.

"She's done an absolutely unbelievable job [adjusting to her new life]", he said.

Meghan's dad is still yet to meet Prince Harry although Samantha has said that he will want to walk his daughter down the aisle at the royal wedding next May.

Reflecting on Meghan Markle's first ever Christmas with the royal family, Prince Harry revealed to Radio 4 listeners this week that "it was fantastic" and his wife-to-be 'really enjoyed it'. Although she lived with her mother in Los Angeles, Ms Markle also spent a great deal of time with her father. She has another half-sibling, Thomas Markle Grant.

Not everyone is fond of Prince Harry's bride-to-be.

Grant and Markle have reportedly been estranged since 2008.

Probably realising that chewed nails are nothing that a mani can't fix - Meghan had a realistic, jolly approach to possibly failing to keep her resolutions once again.
