The site also added, "Harry got to know Markle’s mother throughout their relationship. Ragland even attended the closing ceremonies of the 2017 Invictus Games with Markle and Harry in September 2017. The trio watched the ceremony along with the couple’s friends Jessica Mulroney and Markus Anderson (who introduced Markle and Harry in July 2016) in a private box."
In a statement issued by Kensington Palace, Meghan's mom and dad (Thomas Markle) said: “We are incredibly happy for Meghan and Harry. Our daughter has always been a kind and loving person. To see her union with Harry, who shares the same qualities, is a source of great joy for us as parents. We wish them a lifetime of happiness and are very excited for their future together.”
