(Newser) – It's a tiny tiff being reported by even the BBC: Meghan Markle's half-sister has taken offense to a comment Prince Harry made on a BBC radio program when asked how his fiancee enjoyed Christmas with the royals. His reply in part: "We've got one of the biggest families that I know of and every family is complex as well. She's done an absolutely amazing job. She's getting in there and it's the family, I suppose, she's never had." It's that very last part that got Samantha Grant's goat. Grant, who shares a father with Markle, tweeted on Wednesday, "Actually she has a large family who were always there with her and for her."

She continued, "Our household was very normal and when dad and Doria divorced, we all made it so it was like she had two houses. No one was estranged, she was just too busy. Read my book complete with facts and photos." Kensington Palace's reaction: Prince Harry's "comments speak for themselves." People points out that two days prior Grant had also tweeted about the book: "Excited for my book coming out and wait until you see what our home life was like!" She had previously said it would be called the Diary of Princess Pushy's Sister. (Read more Meghan Markle stories.)
