“Harry is a very good relationship with his grandmother,” said Nicholl. “He wanted the queen’s approval.

“I am impressed by how much responsibility the queen has given Meghan,” Nicholl explained. “The queen loves Meghan. He realizes how lucky Meghan makes Harry, but they will also see how Meghan is as a royal. They showed how much they thought of Meghan in the early days before they were actually married when they invited Meghan to be a part of the Commonwealth Day service. A very important event in the royal calendar. And there was Meghan before she was actually married into the royal family.”

Many of his friends, who until that moment had eternal bachelors, were engaged to marry. I think that Harry really to worry about, and one of the reasons that he was afraid, because he wanted his life partner, and he wanted to be a father. Harry wanted children for a very long time.”
