Be­hind The Scenes

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Contents -

With their nup­tials just five weeks away, royal bi­og­ra­pher Katie Nicholl shares her ex­pert in­sights into Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s re­la­tion­ship, what we can ex­pect from their wed­ding, and when they’re set to start their fam­ily…

Why did Harry fall for Meghan?

She’s very beau­ti­ful, in­cred­i­bly ta­lented, and he said he knew he had to up his game the mo­ment she walked into the room. There is a clear at­trac­tion be­tween them and the fact they have so much in com­mon and share the same goals in life sat so com­fort­ably with Harry. He ad­mires that she uses her fame to help peo­ple and sees a gen­uine phil­an­thropic streak in her. How im­por­tant is it to Harry that he hon­ours his late mum Diana? From the day he lost his mother Harry has been deter­mined to make her proud and con­tinue the work she never got to fin­ish. He has al­ways done his best to keep Diana close, whether it’s liv­ing at Kens­ing­ton Palace or con­tin­u­ing her legacy, so I’m sure we will see Diana re­mem­bered some­how on the wed­ding day – whether it’s in the speeches or some­thing Meghan wears. Harry would not let such an im­por­tant day go by with­out ac­knowl­edg­ing his late mother. When can we ex­pect an­other royal baby? Once they’re mar­ried and have car­ried out their first royal tour – they’re at­tend­ing the In­vic­tus Games in Syd­ney in Oc­to­ber – they will likely come home and en­joy Christ­mas, and I wouldn’t be sur­prised if there was an an­nounce­ment be­fore their first wed­ding an­niver­sary! What kind of fa­ther will Harry be? He would be a won­der­ful fa­ther – he is very gen­uine and en­dear­ing with chil­dren. He is a great un­cle and loves spend­ing time with George and Char­lotte, and for a long time he has wanted chil­dren of his own.
