Tyler Perry has shared a glimpse of his special relationship with Meghan Markle.

The Duchess of Sussex celebrated her 41st birthday on Friday and received multiple celebratory messages, including from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

But it's a message from Perry that is melting hearts.

"I've had a front row seat in your life for the past few years. I've watched you endure things that would have broken a lot of people," the actor wrote alongside a photo of Meghan kissing a young girl's hand.

"I'm so incredibly proud to see how happy you, your husband, and your kids are now," he concluded.


Perry shares a special bond with Meghan and her husband, Prince Harry, after he helped them when they first moved to America in 2020.

Channel24 previously reported that Before settling down in their home in Santa Barbara, Meghan and Prince Harry stayed at Perry's mansion in Beverly Hills with son Archie (their daughter, Lilibet Diana, was born in June 2021) as they transitioned out of their senior royal roles.
