Meghan Markle reportedly helped improve Prince Charles and Prince Harry’s relationship with each other.

In fact, the Duchess of Sussex was the one who encouraged the Duke of Sussex to appreciate his dad more and to bond with him whenever possible. Following Markle and Prince Charles’ first meeting, Archie’s mom immediately became drawn to the heir to the throne.

Royal author Robert Jobson said in “Charles at Seventy” that Prince Harry and even Prince William were quite deferential towards their dad before they met their respective spouses. But things changed after they tied the knot.

“When Meghan met the Prince of Wales she was bowled over by his gentlemanly charm. She told Prince Harry he was wonderful; welcoming, warm, hardworking, kind and stable… She made it clear that he should appreciate him and bond more,” Jobson said.

The “Suits” alum’s encouraging words left a huge impact on Prince Harry that’s why he started to reconnect with his dad. Sources claimed that one of the things that Markle told her husband was to appreciate the only parent he has left.

Prince Harry’s mom, Princess Diana, passed away when she was just 12 years old. The Princess of Wales died on Aug. 31, 1997, following a fatal car crash in Paris. Following his mom’s death, Prince Harry and Prince William were left under the care of their dad, as well as their grandparents.

Meanwhile, Prince Charles has also become very fond of Markle. Other than calling her Tungsten, the heir to the throne also called his daughter-in-law intelligent and nice. The royals’ bond was strengthened after Prince Charles agreed to walk Markle down the aisle on her wedding day.

Prior to the royal wedding, Prince Harry asked his dad for the huge favor after they learned that Markle’s dad, Thomas Markle Sr., couldn’t make it to his daughter’s nuptials following a recent heart attack. According to the Duke of Sussex, Prince Charles immediately agreed to walk Markle down the aisle.
