The royal insider said, “Harry has always had a good relationship with the queen, and they are an extremely close-knit family.”

Things between Markle and Harry have been progressing since they announced their relationship last year. She was recently spotted cheering him on at a charity polo match in Berkshire. They were even caught packing in the personal displays of affection while Harry took a break from the sport.

According to reports, Markle will attend Pippa Middleton’s wedding on the arm of the prince. She reportedly will not be in attendance at the ceremony and will join him later for dinner and dancing at the reception.
