Since Meghan Markle married Prince Harry on 19 May, the former actress has immersed herself into royal life, completely.
There’s no denying that the Duchess of Sussex and the soon-to-be royal mother has formed a close bond with her in-laws. Well, that was inevitable.
Shortly after the royal wedding, Meghan Markle embarked on her first-ever solo visit with Her Majesty. And it was clear for the world to see that the new Duchess has forged a warm relationship with her grandmother-in-law and the present reigning British monarch.
Meghan reflected their friendship in an interview.
She said: “It’s incredible to be able to meet her through his lens. Not just with his honour and respect for her as the monarch, but the love that he has for her as his grandmother. She’s an incredible woman, indeed”.

A short while later, the pair was seen chatting away as they stood near the entrance of Westminster Abbey with their husbands, Prince Harry and Prince William. Meghan was also seen greeting William in a sweet way. The pair shared a kiss on the cheek before the Queen made her entrance at the traditional service.
