Hmm.

According to very credible and reliable anonymous sources from “Prince Charles’ inner circle”, The Duchess of Sussex and her father-in-law have forged a very special bond following her marriage to Prince Harry.

A special bond over their…dysfunctional families.

Yes.

Not just because he’s…you know, her husband’s dad.

Daily Mail has reported that Charles, who walked Meghan part-way down the aisle in place of her absent father, is apparently “impressed” by how the new royal has conducted herself in the public eye after widely reported family troubles and embarrassing outbursts from relatives.

With Prince Charles’ own family troubles including his divorce from Princess Diana, her tragic passing, and reported feuds within the family, he is said to be sympathetic towards Meghan – seeing a lot of himself in her.

“Because there’s been bad behaviour that’s caused problems in his family, Charles understands how difficult it must be for Meghan. And it has endeared her to him even more,” the sources said.

Aren’t Prince Harry and Meghan Markle the cutest? Post continues after video…

The sources went on to draw similarities between Meghan’s strength in the face of swirling media reports surrounding her family’s odd behaviour and the way Prince Charles dealt with public criticism following his divorce from the late Princess Diana.

Because yes, they were very similar circumstances…

Princes Charles’ wife Camilla Parker Bowles is also a big fan of Meghan’s.

“Camilla goes out of her way to find time to spend with her, to get to know her and make her feel welcome,” a source said.

Prince Charles and Meghan Markle’s close bond is said to delight Prince Harry, bringing him closer to his dad.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were even invited by Prince Charles to the Castle of Mey, the late Queen Mother’s remote home in Caithness, Scotland for a holiday last summer.

…Without Prince William and Kate Middleton.

(Who were apparently invited but said no).

A holiday with her husband’s dad?! Meghan and Charles must be tied by their special understanding of each other, specifically what it’s like to experience family drama.

There is no other explanation.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
