Meghan confirmed that she had met Harry's aunts and Diana's close friend, Julia Samuel, in their televised engagement interview. At the time, she said: "I think in being able to meet his aunts and - and also like Julia and just different people who were so important to his mum, I'm able to, in some way, know a part of her through them and of course through him. And it's - it's incredibly special." Speaking about what he thought his mum would think of his fiancée, Harry added: "They'd be thick as thieves, without question. I think she would be over the moon, jumping up and down, you know so excited for me, but then, as I said, would have probably been best friends with Meghan."
