"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,'" Harry recounted the moment to the BBC in November. "For him that's a fantastic opportunity to step up and be that support, and he's our father so of course he's going to be there for us."
As for Kate, her father-in-law has always gone out of his way to make sure she feels welcome. When she and William were just seriously dating, even, Kate was regularly included at family events, including birthday parties and their annual ski trip.
"Charles and Kate have always got on very well," a source told Britain's Telegraph recently. "As the mother of his grandchildren, of course the prince dotes on her."
