By: Meaghan Wray

Ever since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry officially announced their engagement, reports have been swirling around who can take credit for finding the perfect match for the world’s most eligible bachelor. Both Meghan and Harry have large circles of friends, with some overlap among London’s social set, and it now seems that the couple’s Cupid may be Violet von Westenholz.

If the grapevine is correct, the royal romance that blossomed into one of the most exciting pairings ever is rooted in their connection to Ralph Lauren’s former PR agent, as reported by E!. Though Violet hasn’t confirmed her involvement, it wouldn’t be a stretch. First, Violet’s father is close friends with the father of the groom, Prince Charles. There are also reports that Violet’s sister Victoria was once romantically linked to Harry. Furthermore, Violet’s work with the fashion brand and Meghan’s presence in stylish London circles connect the dots between the two women.

Once the 36-year-old met her charming prince, their whirlwind romance saw them sneaking visits in London and Toronto, where the actress filmed Suits, and sitting court side at Harry's Invictus Games. As the world fell madly in love with the couple, their relationship went from strength to strength until they ultimately announced their engagement in November 2017.
