Sophie, Countess of Wessex, has the best interests at heart of Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.
The wife of Prince Edward (56) recently spoke to the Sunday Times about the Sussexes, who’ve stepped down as senior working members of the royal family.
“I just hope they’ll be happy,” Sophie said.
The 55-year-old reflected on her similarities to Meghan (38), as they both came from middle-class families before marrying into the royals and experienced backlash from the media.
In fact, Sophie says she had to prepare for quite a few years, Fox News reports.
“I’d had five years to adjust,” Sophie said of her and Edward’s long relationship, compared to Meghan and Harry’s quicker courtship.

But the countess also added that the prestigious family tries their best to welcome new members into the fold, Hello reports.
“We all try to help any new members of the family,” Sophie said, who has a daughter, Lady Louise Windsor (16), and son, James, Viscount Severn (12), with Edward.
She has a good relationship with other members of the Firm, and is particularly close with her mother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth, and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge.
Meanwhile the Duke and Duchess of Sussex reported a security breach at their Los Angeles home.
The pair reported at least five drone-related incidents between 9 and 25 May, which they believe involved cameras controlled by photographers.
“They see these drones coming in at them, and they guess that they’re being operated by photographers, but they can’t just assume that,” an insider revealed.
“Meghan received racist death threats at the time of her wedding, so the terror threat is very real for them.”
