Princess Diana may be credited for Prince Charles and Meghan Markle’s close bond today.

Robert Jobson, a royal author, and commentator told Express that Markle’s dysfunctional family also helped Prince Charles warm up to the “Suits” alum faster.

“The arrival of Meghan Markle, who has got her own issues and dysfunctional family, probably helped them realize that not everybody is perfect and you have to be accepting of other people’s issues and I think that that is what probably helped,” he said.

Jobson also talked about the impact of Prince Charles and Markle’s relationship on Prince Harry.

“The Prince of Wales gets on very well with Meghan, so I think that probably makes Harry realize that actually because his mom and dad had a terrible and troublesome marriage and ended in divorce – and so did Meghan’s – it doesn’t mean that everybody is perfect,” Jobson said.

Earlier this year, Markle attended a garden party to kick off Prince Charles’ 70th birthday celebrations. While there, a royal insider said that Prince Charles also looked closer to Prince Harry than ever after the future King forged a relationship with Markle.

“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,” the source said.

And during a recent interview, Prince Harry detailed how he asked his dad to walk his wife down the aisle on May 19 when Markle’s dad couldn’t make it to their royal wedding.

“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 the support, and you know he’s our father so of course, he’s gonna be there for us,” Prince Harry said (via Harper’s Bazaar).
