We all hoped that one day we would have a friend that would set us up with a prince. In Meghan Markle's case, that hope actually came true.
Harry and Meghan admitted that meeting in 2016 was not by chance, but that they were introduced by a mutual friend. They kept this friend's name anonymous to protect her privacy, until now.
Many people have speculated who this "secret friend" is. Some have presumed it was Meghan's best friend, Jessica Mulroney, who is a stylist for many high-up clients. Others have suspected that it was fashion designer Misha Nonoo, who used to be married to one of Harry's best friends. Another speculation was Markus Anderson, who accompanied Meghan and Harry during one of their first official outings together at the Invictus Games last September.
It is now confirmed that the not-so-secret matchmaker is Violet von Westenholz. Violet was one of Harry's childhood best friends and their fathers were very close friends as well.
Violet knew that Harry was looking to find the right person, but was having trouble. That's when she met Meghan. The two became friends through Violet's PR work with the fashion house Ralph Lauren. Violet soon told Harry that she had the perfect girl for him.
