The Prince is said to be regularly ringing up his future dad-in-law for long heart-to-hearts ahead of the Royal Wedding.
They have struck up such a close bond that Meghan’s dad, Thomas, is now singing his soon-to-be son-in-law’s praises.
He reportedly thinks Harry is “a great guy” and “couldn’t have wished for a better son-in-law”.
The couple’s friendship has been revealed by Lori Davis, a mum who is a close friend of the reclusive 73-year-old and goes on dinner dates with him.
She denies that comments made by Harry about Meghan’s first Christmas with the Royals – in which he said “it’s the family I suppose that she’s never had” – angered Thomas.
Instead, she told the Daily Mirror: “They’ve had many conversations. Friendly conversations. He’s delighted for them.
“Tom misses his daughter terribly. He and Meghan have always been really close.”
Thomas, a retired TV lighting director who lives near Rosarito in Mexico, has yet to meet Harry.
But Lori has dismissed claims the bankrupt dad has been snubbed from the Royal Wedding at Windsor Castle on May 19
She said: “He doesn’t plan on not going. Out of respect, Tom says little – but I can’t imagine him not being invited. He’d love to walk her down the aisle.”
Mum-of-one Lori also refuted claims Tom’s “chronic limp” would stop him travelling across the pond for the ceremony.
“Tom is fine, it’s nothing like people have said,” she said. “He has a slight hobble but nothing that would stop him attending.”
