The Royal Wedding is upon us and family drama is at the peak.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got engaged in November 2017. Ever since they’ve been the topic of discussion everywhere. The anticipation around their wedding is crazy. From the start of their relationship, Meghan had to face racism and criticism. She will be the first biracial American to join the royal family. The ceremony of the Royal Wedding is on the 19th May.
The family drama timeline.
Here’s a timeline of Meghan Markle’s family creating drama as soon as they heard that she’s going to be a princess. Jealousy, maybe?

Prince Harry commented in an interview that his family is the family Meghan never had. Samantha Markle, Meghan’s 53-year-old half-sister wasn’t pleased and took to Twitter to respond. She said that Meghan has a large family who was always there with her and for her.
She also mentioned that she was writing a book called The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister, about her relationship with Meghan. She has since deleted all these tweets.

Samantha gave an interview to The Wright Stuff, where she set the record straight about her father, Thomas Markle, not attending the wedding. She said:
“Yes, he is planning to walk her down the aisle. He will be there one way or the other. Any rumour to the contrary is . . . my favourite new word is becoming ‘Oh, rubbish.’ He will be there.”

Meghan Markle’s half-brother, Thomas Markle Jr. gave an interview to Daily Mail and said that his life was under scrutiny because of his sister. He said:
“There was a time where people were following me around at work, taking pictures, and posting horrible stories about me and my family saying I’m a white supremacist, a drug addict, and a dealer. That just isn’t true.”

Meghan Markle’s nephew, Tyler Dooley, started selling a strain of weed called Markle Sparkle. Like other family members, he also gave an interview and said:
“Meghan grew up in California and I am sure has an American view on pot. Prince Harry enjoys a good party.
