It turns out that one of Prince Harry's childhood friends played cupid.
Meghan and Harry have admitted that their first meeting was thanks to a mutual friend who played matchmaker - which is amusing, because blind dates have never gone well for anyone but these two, you know?

Sources say William is flying Harry and 15 of his pals on a private jet to The Swiss alps. As fate would have it, with Meghan already being part of the London social scene "for a while", according to the source, Violet saw the Suits actress as "the flawless girl" for Harry. (In their case, the circumstances of their meeting-given the very separate spheres, not to mention continents, they each occupied-held special intrigue.) Meghan and Harry explained they had been set up by a mutual friend-but, just as it appeared Harry might let slip the friend's name, Meghan cut him off, and said they would try to maintain "her" privacy.
Interestingly, Violet von Westenholz was first revealed as a possible contender back in November, when The Daily Telegraph suggested it as a possibility and asked her point blank if she was Prince Harry and Markle's matchmaker. A source close to PEOPLE said that there is "zero competition" between Harry and Markle and Eugenie and Brooksbank.

After seven years of dating, the couple are keen to walk down the aisle as soon as September this year, but due to a long list of royal engagements they've been forced to delay their plans. So, when Harry confided in Violet about his love struggles, she immediately thought of Markle. Friends say, now that Meghan and Harry are just months away from tying the knot, the groom-to-be is just as besotted as ever. "His friends love her too; she's been a really good fit into the group".
"Meghan did put someone's nose out recently because she was introduced to them at an indoor location and didn't take her sunglasses off. But that's really been her only faux pas".
Violet has yet to confirm her matchmaker status, but we're sure we'll see her at Meghan and Harry's May wedding. I am just happy they are really happy.More news: Kimberly-Clark layoffs blamed on declining birthrates
