The royal family has barely made any public statements about Duchess Meghan Markle and Prince Harry‘s royal exit since it happened earlier this year, but now, Sophie, Countess of Wessex has made a short statement.
Sophie, Countess of Wessex is Prince Harry‘s aunt, and she’s married to Harry’s uncle Prince Edward.
If you don’t know, Countess Sophie worked in PR before marrying Prince Edward, and they had a five-year courtship.
“We all try to help any new member of the family,” Sophie told The Times about reaching out to the Duchess to better acclimate her to the new lifestyle. “I just hope they will be happy.”
And when asked to compare her situation as a newcomer to the Duchess’, she said, “Remember I’d had five years to adjust, and for our six-month engagement I was even staying in Buckingham Palace. Not that you necessarily know how it will pan out.”
The publication also reported that the Countess became a confidante for the Duchess during their time in the spotlight.
If you missed it, the Duchess spoke out about the racism she has experienced.
