Most of this was focused on Meghan Markle. Everyone wanted to know as much as they could about the soon-to-be royal from America.

She has always been an accomplished woman.

Before she met Prince Harry, Meghan had already made a great life for herself. She grew up middle-class in Los-Angeles, with a half-sister and brother. Her acting career kicked off almost immediately after university.

Meghan not only had a starring role in the U.S. television series, Suits, she also ran a popular lifestyle platform, The Tig. Most notably, she is a United Nations advocate for the rights of women.

Although Meghan is an accomplished woman in her own right, she has come under a lot of criticism since her engagement to Prince Harry was announced. Especially for her race: Her father is white and her mother is African-American.

Meghan's critics include her half-sister.

Her most surprising critic has been her half-sister, Samantha Grant, who claims that Meghan has not treated their father well.

In an interview with an Australian TV show, she said their cinematographer dad declared that he was bankrupt in 2016. The sister of the soon-to-be royal said their father has not gotten help from his famous daughter.

Samantha also disclosed that she is writing a book titled, The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister. She says the title is meant to be tongue-in-cheek.

The half-sisters have not met up since 2008, and reports claim that she will not make the guest list for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding.

Meghan's dad will be at her wedding.

Like Prince Harry's parents were, Meghan's parents separated when she was a child. But, both of them appear to have formed a united front to be there for their daughter as she prepares for her royal wedding.

Prince Harry has been photographed at least once with Meghan's mom, Doria Ragland, and they seem to get along well. He has, however, not met Tom Markle, Meghan's dad.

This will not be for long though. It has been reported that Tom will walk his daughter down the aisle in May.
