Prince Harry is the luckiest SOB in the world, according to Thomas Markle Jr.
"He’s pretty happy about Harry and he’s extremely proud of her," Thomas Markle Jr. said of his dad, adding that father and daughter have "an amazing relationship" and have always been close.
Markle Jr., who is 15 years his half-sister's senior, said their dad "knew about [the relationship] from the start, having first met Harry in Toronto, where Markle shoots her USA Network series, "Suits."
"He's pretty happy about Harry and he's extremely proud of her."
Big brother thinks H&M's relationship is the real deal.
"They're extremely happy together, they look great together and she's done good. She's very much in love and she's obviously happy because if she wasn't happy, she wouldn't be there. So she is happy and [the relationship is] taking off, which is good, and I wish them all the best. I couldn't be happier for her.
"I think it is wonderful. As long as he takes care of and loves Meg, he doesn't have to do anything else – although I would like to shake his hand and meet him."
Markle Jr. would like Harry to know, however, that it is he who won gold medal in girlfriends.
"She's always been fun and easy going – she's a good girl. A very good girl. Prince Harry is lucky."
A great lady once said something similar when told she was lucky to be going out with Prince William.
"He's so lucky to be going out with me," the Duchess of Cambridge corrected the pleb, who was later sent to the Tower.
It's no secret that Prince Harry has been more rambunctious than his older brother. The late Princess of Wales once joked that Harry was "the naughty one, just like me."
In letters set to be put on the auction block at Cheffins in Cambridge, England, Diana wrote to former Buckingham Palace staffer Cyril Dickman in Oct. 1992 that her boys loved boarding school, "although Harry is constantly in trouble."
Cheffins' Luke McDonald put it perfectly when he explained to Sky News that these types of correspondence "give a more personal insight into the lives of the royals (that) perhaps we can relate to far more than the more formal times we see them in the press and on television."
