The Family Meghan Markle Really Has to Watch Out For

No, not her sister...

They say you can’t choose your family, and nobody knows this better than everyone’s favourite new duchess, Meghan Markle. Her romantic, honeymoon haze is being tainted by her own flesh and blood clinging on to her coattails. You couldn’t blame Meghan for losing sleep over which revelations her father Thomas and sister Samantha Markle will come out with in tomorrow’s inevitable interview with the press. On the up-side, Meg’s reportedly Shakespeare’s fifth cousin 13 times removed. Swings and roundabouts.

But hold it, she did choose. She ascended into the upper echelons of society when she married into notoriously the world’s most prickly, protocol-bound bunch of absolute... characters. (And we thought some of our ex-future-in-laws were challenges.) So how does one impress a family where the matriarch is also the head of state?!

Well, turns out Queen Elizabeth wasn’t the one she had to watch out for - on Meghan's first engagement accompanying her majesty, the pair were seen sharing jokes and apparently getting on swimmingly. No, it’s the under fives that make sure you keep your guard up around here.

Sassy little Princess Charlotte and not-having-a-bar-of-it Prince George have captured the attention of us mere mortals with their ‘mum-can-we-play-yet’ faces and adorable attempts at mastering the royal wave.

And while most of us can only glimpse their personalities through intermittent photo calls and casual Christenings of princes, Gary Janetti thinks he’s got little Georgie’s number. And he’s not buying the Markle sparkle. Imagining the world’s most-photographed kid as a snob with a distaste for auntie Meghan, Janetti’s faux George Instagram account has us snorting on the regular.
