Meghan Markle may have married Prince Harry, but it's become apparent by now that this is actually NOT the star's most impressive accomplishment.
No, her most impressive accomplishment has been managing to continually take the high road in the face of one personal attack after another -- but members of her own family!
Markle's dad, Thomas, has lashed out at the new Duchess as selfish and ungrateful.
Her half-sister, Samantha, has basically said Markle wants to murder puppies and should be held responsible for their father's death, whenever it happens.
These are cruel and terrible people.
But don't take our word for it. Take their own words for it!
Scroll down for a look at the harshest things Thomas Markle and Samantha Markle have said about our dear Meghan...
"It would be easier for Meghan if I died."
Thomas said this about his daughter toward the end of July, whining on this occasion to The Times of London.
"They have Meghan treating her father in a way that Harry's mother, Princess Diana, would have loathed. That's not what Diana stood for."
Yup, he went there. Thomas once said that the Royal Family should be ashamed for turning Markle into the anti-Princess Diana, who is considered to basically be the best person in human history.
"How tragic is that, to deprive a child of its grandfather because I said a few things critical of the royal family
Thomas peered into the future for this quote to The Daily Mail, saying that Meghan and Harry will have a child someday and his daughter will keep his GRANDdaughter from him and that is (will be?) a shameful act.
"She became the woman that she is today thanks to everything I did for her."
This was a classic one, also told to The Daily Mail, adding in this summer 2018 interview: "Did I get any recognition for it? Any thanks? She doesn’t even speak to me now. How cold is that?"
"I've seen her smile for years. I know her smile. I don't like the one I'm seeing now. This is a pained smile."
Thomas has made it a mission to say as often as possible that Markle is basically being tortured by the Royal Family. He's convinced she is unhappy and has basically joined a cult.
"She's not qualified to suggest that I don't under any law in this country."
Samantha said this after she was told that Markle preferred for her to zip her stupid mouth. She added: "This is not Great Britain. I am a United States citizen. And, that's all there is to it. She's way out of her league to tell me that I can't speak."
"Glad you have so much time to gallivant around paying tribute to others while ignoring your own father!"
Remember: Thomas did not attend the Royal Wedding due to heart issues and because he had made deals with paparazzi members to get paid in exchange for photos. Markle released a simple statement afterward, but hasn't talked to her dad much since. This elicited the above quote from Samantha and the following follow-up: "How can you be so cold and look into the mirror? I guess I was right."
"How about you pay tribute to your own father?!"
"Enough is enough," Samantha added via Twitter in this instance in response to Markle doing some humanitarian stuff around Europe. "Act like a woman! If our father dies I'm holding you responsible, Meg!"
"My father is not an embarrassment for loving his daughter!"
Markle kept Tweeting about the way her step-sister treats their shared dad, adding: "The royals are an embarrassment for being so cold. You should be ashamed."
"Cruella Deville [sic] is retreating LOL...Let me know how that works out for you."
Samantha compared Markle to the 101 Dalmatians villain upon learning that she and Harry would be stepping away from the spotlight for a bit.
"What riles me is Meghan's sense of superiority."
We're back to Thomas here. He thinks Markle would "be nothing without me," despite his lack of being a steady presence on her life, concluding: "I made her the duchess she is today."
"Meg may feel like she’s being held prisoner."
Indeed, Thomas Markle Jr. got into the act this summer, saying that Markle is "turning into a zombie" as a result of her new role in life.
"You've got inbreeding, you've got substance abuse, you've got alcohol abuse, you've got infidelity
Samantha said this about the Royal Family in general, but Markle is now part of it, so it sounds. The evil half-sister added: "On what grounds could the royals feel that the Markles are somehow not worthy?"
"I feel a religious and moral obligation to be open to her and not be vindictive or isolating or hurtful."
This may be our favorite Samantha quote of all-time, considering how condescending it was and how totally false it proved because Samantha never stopped hurling shade at Meghan.
"Homeless people are human. Treat them with dignity. Namaste."
Huh? Samantha got back on her pedestal after learning that the Royal Wedding hosts would not be providing anyone watching the event from afar with food or drinks. She thinks Meghan and Harry should have fed everyone who lined the streets to greet them as husband and wife.
"1000 complete strangers are invited. Family is family."
This was among the first times Samantha trashed her siblings. It was in response to not being invited to her wedding and she added in early 2018: "I have an uncle I have only seen once but I would never say he is not family because we are not close. Humanitarians move forward with love and kindness especially to Family."
"Hollywood has changed her."
Samantha made this statement not long after Harry and Meghan got engaged, adding. "I think her ambition is to become a princess…The truth would kill her relationship with Prince Harry."
"It's about basic human consideration. She has none."
Samantha said this about Meghan way back in April 2017, as she tried to call out Markle for being a fake humanitarian. She added back then: "What has she donated to India? Talk is cheap. People who are starving and too poor to afford sanitary napkins don't need a voice they need money and they need donations."
"So this pudgy airhead... who knows nobody in the family is opening her pie hole?"
Okay, Samantha actually said this about Chrissy Teigen after Teigen dared to call Markle's dad out after Thomas insulted his daughter for the 79th time. Still felt worth pointing this insult out. (Man, Samantha sucks, huh?)
