Prince Harry’s childhood buddy, Violet von
Westenholz, who is also
known to have worked briefly with Meghan, is widely rumored to be the ‘mutual
friend’ they both attribute their fairytale romance to.
The daughter of the famous skier Baron Piers, Violet von Westenholz, is being touted as the person who played cupid to the sweet couple of Prince Harry and his future wife, Meghan Markle. She’s close to both of the lovebirds and had apparently arranged a set-up for the pair, two summers ago.
While both Meghan and Harry have been very hush-hush about the common friend who helped bring them together, Violet’s closeness with the couple has its own tale to tell.
The father of the 33- year-old PR director of fashion house Ralph Lauren, Baron Piers is also one of Harry’s royal father’s closest pals.
Violet and Prince have known each other since their tender childhood. She’s been the prince’s trusted confidante for years now, especially in matters concerning the heart.
Therefore, when the moment appeared and the royal came to her to confide about not being able to meet the ‘one’ to start family with, the lady decided to help her pal.
She coordinated with both Meghan and Harry and introduced them to each other. Immediately, the pair clicked and their romance was kindled.
Both Harry and Markle have, on different occasions, accepted that they knew practically nothing about each other until their benefactor(ess) brought them together.
As luck would have it, their chance meeting blossomed into the fairytale romance dreams are made of; and which will see its culmination in May, when the Prince and his bride walk down the aisle to take their conjugal vows.
