The Suits actress is strongly rumoured to be engaged to the royal, following reports she’d been to meet The Queen for royal tea at Buckingham Palace.
As Meghan has been married before, Harry must ask The Queen for her permission to wed the brunette star.
But it seems one person whose blessing they won’t need to worry about is Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle – as apparently he’s “happy” with the duo’s budding romance.
Thomas’ neighbour, Allison Leber told the Mail on Sunday: “He’s happy his daughter is with Prince Harry and he’s glad she’s found love.”
She added: “He’s happy as long as Meghan is happy.”
The 36 year old is very close with her mother and father – and it’s Thomas who apparently introduced her to a career in acting, as the 72 year old worked as a cinematographer, and often brought her on set as a child.

He now lives in Mexico – and if the engagement rumours are true, could be walking Meghan down the aisle to give her away.
It was also recently speculated that Harry went to Thomas to ask him for his blessing.
A source said: “Tom loves Meghan more than anything and will support her on this journey, wherever it might lead. All he has ever wanted is for her to be happy.”
The handsome royal and the American actress apparently want a summer wedding.
A source told Vanity Fair: “William and Kate are expecting their third baby mid April, and Harry won’t want to overshadow the birth of another prince or princess, and, of course, the Duchess will need some time to recover before she is at such a high-profile event.
“The most likely date is early summer 2018, which neatly ties in with Harry and Meghan’s second anniversary.”
