We know that Princes William and Harry have always been close - they served as best man in each other’s weddings, after all.

The same holds true for the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, and her sister, Pippa.

But for new royal family member Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, whom does she have to confide in?

Queen Elizabeth has treated Markle well, inviting her to spend Christmas with the royal family before Markle married Harry.

But it looks like Markle and her father-in-law Prince Charles have been warming up nicely, too­ – especially after he took on the fatherly role of walking her down the aisle when her own father was absent.

For almost a week during the summer after Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding, the two stayed with Prince Charles at the Castle of Mey, reports Vanity Fair.

Not even Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall and wife of Prince Charles, has stayed at the estate for that long, a source told Vanity Fair.

Another family member told Vanity Fair that Charles has a “lovely relationship with the duchess,” and of course his own son.

The family member said the three royals spent their time at the Castle of Mey reading, walking dogs, and chatting.

The source said Charles has “a real soft spot for [Markle] and thinks she’s the best thing to have happened to Harry.”
