They’ve certainly got lots in common: They’re both beautiful brunettes, they’re both in a relationship with a prince, and they must both now deal with being in the public spotlight.
And now Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle are understood to have been introduced by Meghan’s beau Prince Harry, who hopes that they will form a strong bond. Meghan is also believed to have met with the Prince’s niece, Princess Charlotte, during a visit to Kensington Palace.
According to a source close to the royals, Kate was very much looking forward to meeting Meghan, while the meeting is said to have been very important to Prince Harry, who is close to his sister in law.
The source said that Prince Harry and Kate had become very close and that he valued her opinion when it came to his girlfriends. Because Prince Harry lost his mother, Princess Diana at a young age, he appreciates the sisterly, maternal role which she plays in his life, as well as her sense of fun.
Meghan had already met Prince William two months ago in London, but Kate was still in Norfolk at the time. She has now met the Duchess of Cambridge in a sign that the relationship has become serious in a short space of time.
Prince Harry and Meghan have just got back from their first holiday together as a couple. Prince Harry was keen to ensure that their first trip was a special one and took his new love to see the Northern Lights in Norway.
It is now believed that Prince Harry is making plans ahead of Valentine’s Day to take the actress, best known for her role in the legal drama Suits, on a skiing trip to Verbier. Royal aides have already been to the resort to check whether there are any possible security problems.
