Prince Harry recently revealed how he asked his dad to step in when Meghan's father, Thomas Markle, was unable to attending the wedding. Speaking in a new BBC documentary celebrating Charles' 70th birthday, he said: "I asked him to and I think he knew it was coming, and he immediately said, 'Yes, of course, I'll do whatever Megan 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." The Duchess of Sussex appears to be equally fond of Charles, as she has sported a bracelet he gifted her several times during royal engagements.

The Prince of Wales also seems to be delighted that Harry and Meghan will be welcoming their first child together, and spoke about becoming a grandfather again while raising awareness for protecting the environment during his royal visit to Ghana. He said: "I am about to have another grandchild actually. I suspect quite a few of you may too have grandchildren or will do soon. It does seem to me insanity if we are going to bequeath this completely polluted, damaged and destroyed world to them. All grandchildren deserve a better future." During the meeting, where he discussed tackling plastic pollution with government officials and business leaders, he also made a speech on the issue."
