Sources have told E! that Harry and Meghan’s “similar struggles” as children of divorced parents brought them together.
Meghan’s parents divorced when she was six years old (leaving her with an extended family who just love to rat on their high-flying sister to the tabloids) while Prince Charles and Princess Diana separated when Prince Harry was eight.
“For Meghan and Harry, their similar struggles seem to have helped cement their connection,” the source says.
It’s a situation Prince Harry alluded to after the couple spent Christmas 2017 with the royal family at Sandringham. “There’s always that family part of Christmas,” he began. “It’s the family I suppose she’s never had.”
