“Harry’s being his usual amazing self around Meghan. He’s keeping an eye on her to ensure she doesn’t overwork because she’s not the best at knowing when to put the brakes on — that’ll be Harry’s job. She feels really great and is enjoying the busy work schedule she has at the moment. He’ll make sure she’s not doing much as they enter the final weeks.”
