Meghan Markle's family feud reportedly began because of a remark from Prince Harry

Meghan Markle's family feud supposedly began when Prince Harry made a seemingly innocuous comment in a radio interview.

Back when Meghan Markle and Prince Harry became engaged, they gave a joint interview where they talked openly about their whirlwind relationship.

The bond between them struck their many fans and soon after Harry gave an interview to BBC Radio 4 where he chatted about Meghan's first Christmas with his family.

According to reports, he was asked how about this went, his wife-to-be spending Christmas with the in-law's and he said she did an "amazing job".

However, he then went on to say that "it was the family she never had" and this comment didn't go unnoticed.

It wasn't long after that that Meghan's half-sister Samantha and her father Thomas started to discuss Meghan's relationship with the Markle family...or lack thereof.

Speaking on new Channel 5 documentary, Meghan and the Markles: A Family at War, Samantha said she felt that Harry hadn't been given the "full story".

Samantha continued:

"Then we questioned why… why would she be embarrassed about her family, why would you need to set the stage differently. It was starting to feel like she wasn’t reaching out to the family".

It seems to have been the catalyst for the long-running feud where Samantha has spoken about Meghan in multiple TV interviews and via social media with their father also speaking to a number of publications.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expecting their first baby this spring and it can't be beneficial to Meghan's health having so many personal rumours circulate.

However, Meghan Markle's family feud doesn't appear to be coming to an end anytime soon with Thomas recently releasing extracts from a private letter his daughter sent him.
