Harry told BBC's Radio 4 that his fiancée had an "amazing" Christmas with his family. "She's had a really good family", he said.

"No member of the Royal Family should have naked images of them freely available on the internet as she does", the petition reads.
By common consent, Harry dropped a "clanger" when he was a guest editor on BBC Radio 4's Today programme earlier this week and said: "No look, she's done an absolutely incredible job". "Her engagement effectively spelt an end to her acting career too so that was the final blow".
Taking to Twitter, she wrote: "Actually she [Meghan] has a large family who were always there with her and for her".
She also tweeted: "Meg's family (our family) is complete with sister, brother, aunts, uncles, cousins, and the glue of our family, our wonderful completely self-sacrificing father".

Meghan's parents, mum Doria Ragland, 61, and dad Thomas Markle Sr, 73, divorced in 1987. On her now defunct lifestyle blog The Tig, the Suits actress confessed in 2016 that her goal almost every year is to be more ~ladylike~. She always had this family.
