Meghan Markle news: Prince Harry’s wife has close relationship with Charles

Meghan Markle has been a part of the family since marrying Prince Harry at Windsor Castle in May 2018. Although she is currently on a six week break from public duties, she has been at many royal events in the past. She has been seen with many royals but she is said to have become “very close” with one member of the family.

Although the pair always seem friendly, Meghan might have the closest relationship with another member of the family.

In fact, it could be her father-in-law, Prince Charles, 71, who she has formed a real bond with.

Speaking to Vanity Fair, a source said: “The wedding was a real turning point. Charles showed so much love towards Harry and Meghan, and I think Harry will be eternally grateful to his papa for stepping in and giving Meghan’s hand in marriage. The bond between them is very close.

“Charles has been very supportive of Meghan and everything she is going through with her own father.


“He’s got a real soft spot for her and thinks she’s the best thing to have happened to Harry.”

When Meghan and Harry said “I do” the actress asked Charles to walk her down the aisle and there relationship has reportedly gone from strength to strength.

Speaking on BBC’s Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70, Prince Harry spoke out on Meghan’s relationship with his father.

He said: “I asked him to and I think he knew it was coming, and he immediately said ‘yes, of course, I’ll do whatever Meghan needs and I’m here to support you’.

“For him that’s a fantastic opportunity to step up and be that support, and you know he’s our father so of course he’s gonna be there for us.”

Most recently, Meghan and Sophie stood together at the Remembrance service 2019 at the Cenotaph.

Sophie appeared to look over Meghan and offer her services as an ally, body language expert, Judi James, explained.

Judi told “Sophie always looks like the ‘no fuss’ royal and her long-term marriage to the royal prince who once seemed the least likely to settle down after some fickle career choices suggests she’s a great stabilising influence and might make the perfect royal mentor for Meghan.

“Watching Sophie and Meghan together it’s hard to imagine the pair would naturally become close friends but there is some evidence that Sophie could be offering her services as an ally.”

Who is Meghan Markle? Quick profile

Meghan Markle was born Rachel Meghan Markle, on August 4, 1981 to parents Doria Ragland and father Thomas Markle.

Her father was previously married to Roslyn Loveless and Meghan has two elder half sibling – sister Samantha Markle and brother Thomas Markle Junior.


Meghan’s first television appearance in the USA was in an episode of the medical drama General Hospital in 2002.

She later moved on to roles in CSI, Without a Trace and Castle along with bit parts in Hollywood films including Get Him to the Greek, Remember Me and Horrible Bosses.

Meghan was also a “briefcase girl” on Deal or No Deal – but her most famous role was as Rachel Zane in legal drama Suits, which launched in 2011.

She was written out in the finale of the seventh series when her character got married, which aired in April 2018 – just before she got married herself.

Charity and humanitarian work

Meghan Markle’s career in television has gone hand-in-hand with her support for causes close to her heart.

She wrote about the stigma around menstrual health in an article for Time magazine and was a Global Ambassador for World Vision Canada – with whom she travelled to Rwanda for the charity’s Clean Water Campaign.

And her commitment to gender equality has seen her work with the United Nations – receiving a standing ovation in 2015 for her speech to mark International Women’s Day.


In September 2011, she wed film producer Trevor Engelson, who she began dating in 2004.

But the pair divorced two years later in August 2013, citing irreconcilable difference.

She was in a relationship with celebrity chef Cory Vitiello for almost two years, before they broke it off in 2016 but the two remain good friends.

And in June 2016, she met Prince Harry on a blind date set up by a mutual friend.

Their relationship began in October that year and just over one year later, on November 27, 2017, the pair announced their engagement.

They married on May 19, 2018 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

Meghan’s heritage

Some have claimed Meghan Markle is the first mixed-race member of the Royal Family.

Historians are still arguing about Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III.

But Meghan will be the first royal to openly embrace a mixed-race heritage.

She has written about the difficulties of being a biracial actress in Hollywood as she claims she is not black enough for some roles and not white enough for others.
