Prince Harry is facing a bit of controversy in his relatively new relationship with Meghan Markle and the controversy is coming from a very unlikely source.
Prince Harry has been dating Markle for quite a while and for the last two months they have been traveling together and nurturing their relationship. The romance between the two can be described as a storybook romance. Prince Harry was born into British royalty and is considered the most eligible bachelor in the world. Markle, on the other hand, is a regular civilian, but she managed to gain some fame for her acting role in the hit TV series Suits where she acts as Rachel Zane.
Harry and Markle are thought to have met at a Toronto Charity event that was held in May. They exchanged contacts and that was most likely the beginning of a very interesting relationship.
“They had gotten on when they first met, but it was just as friends,” a source familiar with the story told the US Magazine.
There is a possibility that an engagement may be coming up soon and Markle has already been introduced to Prince William and Kate. She has also been introduced to Prince Charles and the royal family seems to have accepted her. Unfortunately, there is a thorn in the flower just like in every fairy tale. Markle’s older half-sister, Samantha Grant, does not think that her sister is a good fit for the prince.
Grant is 51-years-old and suffers from multiple sclerosis which has confined her to a wheelchair. She claims that with Markle, charity doesn’t always start from home. She described Markle as selfish, shallow, and narcissistic during an interview with the UK Mirror. Grant also stated that Markle always wanted to be a princess and had a liking for redheads. She also revealed that she raised the Suits actress for 12 years and she does not have good things to say about her.
Grant also told Radar that the British royal family would be left in dismay if they knew what Markle had done to her own family. She believes that if the truth came out, it would possibly mean the end of the relationship between Harry and Markle. It is not clear what the elder sister means but she seems to be saying those words with a lot of pain and bitterness. It is not clear whether this is because life has been treating her harshly while her sister seems to be finding favor everywhere she goes or because there is some truth to Grant’s words.
A bit of digging in Markle’s background reveals that her father was white while her mother was black. This would bring a lot of diversity into the royal family if she was to get married to Prince Harry. She also happens to be a divorcee, which is a bit of a con because the royal family does not allow divorcees into the family. If Prince Harry was to marry Markle, he would abdicate his right to the throne. However, this will most likely not be a problem because Prince Charles is first in line to the throne and Harry keeps being pushed further down the line as his brother’s family grows.
Despite the gloomy cloud of controversy that is now hovering over Markle’s relationship with Prince Harry, she claims that things have been going very well for her and that she feels like the luckiest girl in the world. It will be exciting to see how this highly publicized relationship between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will turn out and especially how they will handle all the controversy flooding in.
