Charles and Meghan were said to have enjoyed a close relationship before the Sussex royals stepped down from full time duties earlier this year.
Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand claimed in their autobiography Finding Freedom, which takes an inside look at Meghan and Harry’s exit from full time royal life, the Duchess viewed Charles as a “second father”.
A friend of the Duchess told the authors Meghan “found such a supportive and loving father in Charles, which has really changed her life for the better”.
The book also claims Charles had “taken a real shine to Meghan”, with a friend of the Prince adding: “She’s a sassy, confident beautiful American. He likes very strong, confident women.
“She’s bright and she’s self-aware, and I can see why they’ve struck up a very quick friendship.”
