Meghan Markle and Prince Harry managed to keep their relationship a secret for six months before issuing an official statement about their engagement. By that time, the royal family had long accepted Meghan and helped keep their love secret. A certain someone, however, played an even bigger role in it.

Keeping it on the hush-hush

It would've been difficult for the happy couple to have frequent meetings and spend time with each other's close ones, if it wasn't for a bit of help.

Harry's favorite cousin, Princess Eugenie, played a big role in his relationship. Royal biographer Omid Scobie reports that Eugenie and her fiancé, Jack Brooksbank, often accompanied the new couple on double dates.

Eugenie and Jack would even fly out to Toronto to spend time with Meghan and Harry.

New friendship

It's safe to say that Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson's youngest daughter really likes Markle, considering how much she was willing to do for her and Prince Harry. Another royal biographer Andrew Morton, who's working on Markle's biography titled Meghan: A Hollywood Princess, also points out their special bond.

They have all become great friends. Eugenie loves Meghan to bits and believes she is perfect for Harry.

Interestingly, Princess Eugenie has always been rooting for her cousin's personal life. She used to set him up on dates and even introduced Harry to his ex-girlfriend Cressida Bonas.

Luckily, Harry ended up with someone Eugenie really likes and has common interests with. According to Morton, the two ladies bonded "over a shared love of art, dogs and late-night macaroni suppers."

Anything for a friend

It was recently announced that Princess Eugenie had to postpone her wedding due to Harry and Meghan's ceremony. Princess of York was supposed to get married in September but changed the date to October 12th.

But we're sure that the princess doesn't hold a grudge against her cousin and his fiancée.

What a great time to be a member of a royal family, two weddings, two beautiful couples in love.
