"I think Meghan and Harry should do what’s best for them," the 68-year-old pal of the pair said. "Clearly they know what’s going on in their family life. They know what’s going on over there."

The journalist then explained that although she is close with the duo, they rarely discuss their issues with the Windsor brood. "They consult me about nothing when it comes to that or anything for that matter," she noted.

"I think they make the decision that’s best for them. But I think — as [far as] his dad — I’m glad he’s going," she added, handing her support to Harry for his choice to attend King Charles’ big day.

King then revealed that the couple’s relationship is in "a really good place" despite the public controversy within the family.

"You’ve seen the two of them together and I know what they have is really true-blue. And it’s good to see the happiness that they give each other," she gushed.

Speculation over whether Harry and Meghan would go to the event began following the pair’s very public and harsh exit from the royal family.

More recently, the couple released a Netfix special titled Harry & Meghan in which they made scathing remarks about the royal clan, which was followed by Harry’s memoir, Spare, that took a deep dive into the family’s alleged wrongdoings.

Us Weekly reported on King's comments.
