Meghan Markle and Prince Harry continue to make strides in their relationship!
As you know, the Suits actress has met several members of the royal family… and now we’re hearing the 32-year-old has already gotten approval from Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle Sr.!
The 35-year-old beauty’s older half-brother, Thomas Markle Jr., sat down for a lengthy interview with DailyMail.com where he dished on the starlet’s upbringing and her new relationship with the famed Brit.
We can’t imagine Meg or Harry are super thrilled about the 50-year-old’s little tell-all in the press, but we digress!
While Thomas Jr. is unsure if the humanitarian has met Meg’s mother, Doria Ragland, he does reveal that Harry’s been introduced to her lighting director poppa… about six months ago:
“My dad knew about [the relationship] from the start. He first met Prince Harry about six months ago out in Toronto. He goes once every couple of months ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ [Meghan and Thomas Markle Sr] are very close and they stay in close contact. He’s pretty happy about Harry and he’s extremely proud of her [Markle]. They have an amazing relationship, they’re very close and they always have been.”
Thomas goes on to say how proud he is of his little sis, and how he’d one day like to meet the Prince himself:
“They’re extremely happy together, they look great together and she’s done good. She’s very much in love and she’s obviously happy because if she wasn’t happy, she wouldn’t be there. So she is happy and [the relationship is] taking off, which is good, and I wish them all the best. I couldn’t be happier for her. I think it is wonderful. As long as he takes care of and loves Meg, he doesn’t have to do anything else ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ although I would like to shake his hand and meet him.”
“Meghan is already accomplished in life and now there’s this on top of it. I mean it’s every girl’s dream to become a princess but she never said anything about it. She did like Cinderella and The Little Mermaid but she never had a Prince Harry poster or anything like that. But still, I think she fits the bill more than anyone.”
As for Meghan’s short-lived marriage to Trevor Engleson that ended in 2013, Thomas admits he’s not really sure what went wrong:
“He was a nice guy. I’m not sure what happened with them. They were together for a few years but I’m not quite sure what their falling out was. I guess they just decided to go their separate ways. It’s a Hollywood thing I guess.”
But back to the topic at hand, Miz Markle’s brother seems to be totally here for the TV star’s new relationship, saying of Har:
“He looks like a genuinely good man – and he was in the Services as well. He looks happy, he looks like he’s stress-free and like he could be a good guy for Meg. They get along and that’s what matters. There’s been a lot of things said about Markle but it really doesn’t matter what people come up with and what they say. She’s the right girl for the job [of being a princess]. It’s not a job but she’s the right girl. You couldn’t get a more refined, well-rounded person than her. Look at them when they look at each other — they love each other. So it’ll be great, it’ll be royal. I just want her to be happy … She’s always been fun and easy going — she’s a good girl. A very good girl. Prince Harry is lucky.”
