Meghan Markle has met even more members of the royal family!
Prince William‘s wife traveled with Charlotte, 1, from their Amner Hall home in Norfolk, England to London to meet Meghan last week. Kate, also 35, Charlotte, Meghan and Harry, 32, reportedly spent time together in Kensington Palace’s Apartment 1A, Kate and William’s family residence.
Sadly, the couple’s older child, Prince George, didn’t get to meet his Uncle Harry’s new love — he had to stay behind in Norfolk, England to attend preschool!

“Kate was really looking forward to meeting Meghan and she knew how important it was to Harry,” a friend told The Sun. “They are very close and he really values her opinion on girlfriends.”
“Obviously Harry’s mother, Princess Diana, died when he was very young so Kate really fulfills that older sister/maternal role,” the pal continued. “It went really well and Meghan was very excited about meeting her.”
“[Meghan] got to play with Charlotte who she just adored,” the friend said, adding the actress gave Kate a 35th birthday gift — a leather-bound dream diary! — during their meeting.

“This just shows how serious Harry is,” the friend said of the special meet-and-greet. “He wants to take their relationship to the next level.”
“I can see them engaged by spring,” another royal family friend told The Sun. “I know that sounds a bit crazily soon, but he’s head over heels and they can’t bear to be apart.”
“He wants to start a family and so does she,” the source added.
