Samantha Markle is responding to claims that Prince Harry made following his first Christmas with the royal family and his new fiancee Meghan Markle.

After the holidays, Harry sat down for an interview with BBC 4 radio show “Today.” Harry told the hosts that his fiancee had a “fantastic” time celebrating with his family.

“The family loved having her there. I think together, we had an amazing time,” he said. ““She’s done an absolutely amazing job. She’s getting in there, and it’s the family that I suppose she’s never had.”

After the interview, Markle’s half-sister took to Twitter to slam the comments made by Harry.

“She has a large family. She always did. Our dad is amazing and completely self sacrificing. We made it so that she had two houses. How fun it was!” she wrote.

Samantha continued, “Excited for my book coming out and wait until you see what our home life was like!”

Samantha previously claimed she was going to write a tell-all about her sister with a working title of “The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister.” In the book, she claimed that her sister was a “shallow social climber” and “had a soft spot for gingers.”

She later shot down rumors that she was writing the tell-all after her sister’s engagement made headlines in November. Following the big engagement news, Samantha did an interview with Piers Morgan on “Good Morning Britain” and denied rumors of estrangement in the family.

“The reality is that most of that was a media construct,” she said at the time. “We are very normal and moving forward, we’re going into the holidays and this is a joyous occasion so I think that any sort of misconception that was out there … we have to let bygones be bygones and just be really happy moving forward.”

She continued, “All of that is just silly and we really want her to be happy.”

Prince Harry dodges question about inviting Obamas to wedding

Since the announcement of Prince Harry’s wedding, many have speculated about the guest list. In fact, several are wondering whether the Obamas will receive an invite, a question the soon-to-be groom dodged in a recent interview.

During a segment on BBC Radio 4, a reporter asked him if former U.S. President Barack Obama would receive a special note in the mail, but Prince Harry said he didn’t want to “ruin that surprise.”

“We haven’t put the invites or the guest list together yet so who knows whether he's going to be invited or not. I wouldn’t want to ruin that surprise,” he said.

Reports say the British government is concerned about how current President Donald Trump would react if the Obamas attend, amid a shaky relationship between the U.S. and the U.K.

“Harry has made it clear he wants the Obamas at the wedding, so it’s causing a lot of nervousness,” The Sun reported, citing an unamed senior government official. “Trump could react very badly if the Obamas get to a royal wedding before he has had a chance to meet the queen.”

Although the royal family and U.K. politicians have become close acquaintances of the Obamas in recent years, rallying together for the Invictus Games and appearing together in public several times, their encounters with Trump have not been as friendly.

In November, British Prime Minister Theresa May was critical of Trump’s decision to retweet a string of inflammatory videos from a British political fringe group that purport to show violence being committed by Muslims. May’s office said it was “wrong” for the president to have done shared the videos.

The prince’s fiancee, actress and humaniatarian Meghan Markle, has also called out Trump in the past.

But Prince Harry and Markle don’t have the sole say on the invites. The British Parliament will aid the couple. 

“Conversations are ongoing about and ministers will eventually have to decide,” The Sun reported. “If the PM lays down the law, Harry will just have to suck it up.”

The nuptials are set for May 19 at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in London.

Report: UK government worried about Trump's reaction if Obamas get royal wedding invitation

The British government is urging Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to reconsider inviting former President Barack Obama to their wedding out of fear of how current President Donald Trump might react, according to reports.

“Harry has made it clear he wants the Obamas at the wedding, so it’s causing a lot of nervousness,” The Sun reported, citing a senior government official. “Trump could react very badly if the Obamas get to a royal wedding before he has had a chance to meet the queen.”

The government appears to be concerned that Trump might view an invitation to the Obamas as a snub amid already frosty relations between the United States and the United Kingdom. Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May have had a rocky relationship since the start of the Trump’s presidency, and many fear extending an invitation to Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama might exasperate the issue.

The pair was not invited to Prince William’s 2011 wedding to Kate Middleton at Westminster Abbey, but Prince Harry fostered a bond with the Obamas, working closely with them on his annual Invictus Games in Toronto in September. While the trio remain friendly, it looks like it might be up to May to make the call on whether the Obamas will be invited to the royal wedding this spring.

“Conversations are ongoing about and ministers will eventually have to decide,” The Sun reported. “If the PM lays down the law, Harry will just have to suck it up.”

Prince Harry and Markle are expected to wed May 19. The couple has opted to celebrate their nuptials at Windsor Castle, where they spent time together before getting engaged. Once married, the couple plans to live in Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace.
