Prince William apparently is not the only one who publicly supported Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s relationship. After Harry and Meghan’s public appearance at the Invictus Games opening ceremony on Saturday, the Queen’s representative in Canada also shared his support on the couple’s relationship. According to him, their royal romance is “marvelous.”
Canada’s Governor General, David Johnston, sat near Prince Harry at the event. Even though the “Suits” star joined her royal beau at the ceremony, they still did not sit together.
“We were seated beside one another with the PM and his wife and the First Lady of the US,” David told ITV News. “My wife and myself and he (Harry) were alone but you say, I gather, there was a young lady in the audience who was watching him with great interest.”
Meghan certainly marked her first step into the royal spotlight with her appearance at the Invictus Games. And the chances to spark more rumors about a royal engagement announcement are even bigger. David Johnston was asked what Harry and Meghan’s relationship might mean for Canada and the UK in the future. He sure hopes that it will strengthen ties between the two nations.

“Well I think it would be quite marvelous and I hope it would be quite marvelous for him and obviously it will help to bring us together,” he said. “But, you know, that reflects so many of the people-to-people ties that are so strong.”
Meghan Markle was expected to join Prince Harry at the Invictus Games in Toronto. Still, according to reports, there were concerns that they might overshadow the achievements of the injured armed services personnel and veterans that take part in the contest.
