- Meghan Markle is engaged to Prince Harry.
- Prince Harry said in an interview that Markle and Princess Diana would be “best friends,” if his mother were still alive.
- Markle and the late princess have a number of things in common, from a love of fashion to a dedication to humanitarian work.
Meghan Markle has more in common with Princess Diana than immediately meets the eye.
In November, news broke that Prince Harry was engaged to marry American actress Meghan Markle. The prince designed Markle’s engagement ring himself, using two diamonds from the jewelry collection of his late mother, Princess Diana.
When asked what his mother would have thought of Markle, Prince Harry told the BBC that he thought she would have been “best friends with Meghan.”
“Oh, they’d be thick as thieves, without question,” Harry said. “I think she would be over the moon, jumping up and down, you know so excited for me.”
Taking a closer look at the pair, it’s clear why the prince believes they would be best friends. And, since the engagement, Markle has been paying homage to her late mother-in-law.
