Prince Charles is a 'big fan' of Meghan Markle: 'She's great-looking and is really clever'
A Royal Family expert shares that Prince Charles is very fond of Meghan Markle since she makes his son Prince Harry very happy and that's what every father would want for his son
Prince Charles celebrated his 70th birthday earlier this week and is reportedly a 'big fan' of his daughter-in-law Meghan Markle who is married to his younger son Prince Harry. It is believed that he is fond of the Duchess of Sussex because she makes the Duke of Sussex very happy.
As reported by Fox News, according to royal television producer Nick Bullen, "From what I know, he is a big fan of Meghan Markle. He just wants his boys to be happy. He knows those boys have had a rough life with his marriage falling apart in front of the whole world. And Meghan is making Harry very happy. And that makes the Prince of Wales happy. He wants what every father would want for their son."
Bullen also shared that Prince Charles believes that Meghan is "part of the monarchy’s future" and "he can also see she’s good for the family." He continued: "She’s great-looking, she’s really clever, she loves Prince Harry, she’s brilliant on stage — she’s a great asset to the family. She’s part of the monarchy’s future and he knows it."
Prince Charles has definitely welcomed Prince Harry's wife into the royal family and was also the one to walk her down the aisle since Meghan's father Thomas Markle could not make it. In a BBC documentary to mark Charles' birthday, Harry recalled the very moment Charles agreed to walk Meghan down the aisle. "I asked him to and I think he knew it was coming and he immediately said, 'Yes, of course, I’ll do whatever Meghan needs and I’m here to support you’. For him that’s a fantastic opportunity to step up and be that support, and you know he’s our father so of course, he’s gonna be there for us," Prince Harry shared.
Bullen also discussed how Prince Charles "very much lives in the present" and is not focusing on becoming king. "I don’t think he thinks about it a lot. He is a man who very much lives in the present. And all of the programs we’ve made with him, he’s very now. He has a job to do as the Prince of Wales, which he does willingly… If you speak to him, sure, he’s aware he will be king one day, but that will come at its time. So not too much can be done now if you really think about it," Bullen shared.
"And also, there’s the fact that for him to become king, then very sadly his mother has to die. So I guess it’s not something anyone wants to focus on, least of all her son… [And] when you speak with the family, you don’t necessarily get the sense that he’s thinking about the top job."
He added: He’s thinking about how he can be the most effective Prince of Wales today… He just wants to do the job really, really well. When he becomes king, he’ll do that job really, really well."
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting their first child together in spring 2019. Meghan was also recently seen in two new family portraits which were released by Clarence House in honor of Prince Charles' birthday. Prince Harry can be seen wrapping his arm around his wife lovingly in the pictures.
