The 96-year-old Harry’s grandfather has developed a particular fondness for Markle and has “got on” well with his grandson’s fiancée.

Meghan got to spend some time with him together at Sandringham during the Christmas time, which was her first festive season with the royals. But what helped her to win over the Queen’s husband?

According to the royal insider, the actress used a clever technique to earn his trust. Instead of just talking about the royal family, she decided to quiz Prince Philip on his personal background.

It was said that it worked really well, as Prince Philip warmed to Markle very quickly, charmed by her confident personality. The insider revealed:

The Duke of Edinburgh really got on with her. The reason he liked her was because she was very bold.

Meghan was very interested in the Duke of Edinburgh’s family background and his connection to Greece and was not afraid to ask questions.

Prince Philip was born in Corfu, Greece and was a part of the Danish and Greek royal families. However, love made him give up those royal titles, and after marrying Queen Elizabeth II in 1947, he was made a British prince in 1957.

It is not known whether Meghan came up with this little trick by herself or was tipped by Prince Harry, but it surely worked.

What about Her Majesty the Queen? She didn’t exactly share any opinions about the Suits star, but the fact that Prince Harry proposed to Meghan says a lot as he had to get his grandmother's blessing first.
