Meghan Markle's dad "extremely hurt" by Prince Harry's latest comments

Meghan Markle's dad

The souce said the producers had narrowed down a shortlist that included Markle and four other actresses, but "her engagement effectively [spelled] an end to her acting career too, so that was the final blow".

Meghan Markle's half-brother, Thomas Markle Jr.

"My father will be extremely hurt, actually. And maybe he will also realise that while Christmas is a time of jolly and holly, it is also a time of compromise and tact", she added.

Prior to becoming one half of one of the world's most headline-grabbing romances, Meghan was a successful actress, and had roles in movies as well as her long-running part in hit U.S. TV show Suits.

"Our household was very normal and when dad and Doria divorced, we all made it so it was like she had two houses", she wrote.

According to The Sun, the "Suits" actress caught the attention of James Bond producers for an upcoming film until her relationship with Harry became public and they figured she wasn't available. "We did the best that we could in terms of getting together for holidays and whatnot", Markle's brother continued.

Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie, Princess Anne, Princess Royal, Prince Andrew, Duke of York, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attend Christmas Day Church service at Church of St Mary Magdalene on 25 December 2017 in King's Lynn, England.




The couple became engaged after dating for over a year on November 29th, 2017.

Meghan's mother is Doria Ragland, an African-American, who met her father Thomas Markle on the set of the United States soap General Hospital, where he worked as a lighting director when she was a temp in the studio.

The reaction follows comments from the actress's half-sister, Samantha, who slammed Prince Harry on Twitter earlier this week, saying "She has a large family". Marrying merely extends it.

Harry had dropped a "clanger", Daily Mail columnist Jan Moir said on Friday, commenting: "Harry's words hung in the air like an icy reprimand; an unintended slight to the actual Markle parents".

"She has a large family".

In interviews she has described her half-sister as a "shallow social climber" and claimed she shunned her family since making it in Hollywood.
