When Meghan Markle and Prince Harry tied the knot in the most anticipated wedding of the year, fans of the couple wished them nothing but the best.
Sadly, that can't be said about the Duchess of Sussex's own family. Although Meghan hadn't been close to her father's side of the family for years, they were still offended they didn't get an invitation to the enormously publicized royal event.
Aside from her mother, only Meghan's father, Thomas Markle, made the guest list to the coveted ceremony, but was ultimately unable to attend the nuptials after suffering from a heart attack only days before.
However, Thomas may have made matters worse for his strained relationship with his daughter when he appeared on Good Morning Britain on June 18.
The former television lighting director sat down for a tell-all interview where he discussed his daughter's wedding.
"[Meghan and Harry] were disappointed," Thomas said, adding that Meghan "cried" when he told her he wouldn't be able to walk her down the aisle.
He also said "it was a serious mistake" to have staged paparazzi photos of himself preparing for the ceremony.
But, Thomas' controversial interview backfired after the royals caught wind of his remarks, which hadn't been approved by the royal family.
"The proper thing to do would have been to let Meghan and Kensington Palace know he was giving an interview,” a palace source revealed. "He already did damage before the wedding."
Since Thomas has yet to meet Queen Elizabeth II and his son-in-law, he was quick to voice his frustration when he found out that the British monarch was going to meet Donald Trump before him.
"If the Queen is willing to meet our arrogant and insensitive president she has no excuse not to meet me, I’m nowhere near as bad," Thomas told TMZ, adding that he feels like he's being punished for his previous interview and hadn't spoken to his daughter since she tied the nearly two months ago.
But of course Thomas hasn't been the only family member to speak to the media about the former Suits star.
Samantha Markle, has opened her mouth once again to defame her younger half-sister.
Samantha recently took to Twitter to call Meghan the "duchess of nonsense" before claiming that she was the cause of all of their father's troubles. She also called Harry a "wuss" for allowing Meghan to disregarding her family.
"Harry is a wuss to allow the Duchess of Nonsense to mistreat everyone who has been close to her, especially her family," Samantha tweeted. "Diana would be ashamed. Stop wearing Meg's skivvies and bra and take your pants off of her!"
She then suggested the Duke of Sussex should have married his former girlfriend, Cressida Bonas instead, due to her similarities to his mother, the late Princess Diana.
The mother-of-three then concluded her rant by defending her harsh words.
"She was embarrassed about the family? It's totally reciprocal. The Gloria Swanson bit, the fake humanitarian act, Fake British accent is also ridiculous," Samantha wrote.
"Sorry tough love exists and just because I can speak out about some things does not mean I don't love her but I can call out things I do not agree with... if nobody likes it it's too damn bad," she added, before concluding that Meghan was ultimately a "lovely person and gorgeous."
This isn't the first time Samantha spoke to the media. During an interview in Channel Four show's Meet The Markles, she claimed to have raised Meghan for 12 years when they both lived in California. However, Samantha's statement has been dismissed by sources close to the Duchess.
