McPhee, 38, said that her husband managed to reconnect with the royal couple after setting them up with their Canadian hideaway in British Columbia earlier this year and as a result, he and Harry now have a great relationship which can feel like family.

‘My husband has a really, really beautiful relationship with Harry. They’re so cute. They’re like father and son,’ McPhee told Access Hollywood. 

She explained how Foster, 70, helped set the former royals up with their Canadian hideaway before they moved to LA. 

‘David is the resource guy,’ McPhee said. ‘He knows all the places. He loves to help people. We just hope they end up somewhere where they feel like they can really settle down,’ she said of the couple’s recent move to the Golden State.

Canadian mining magnate Giustra, 62, is believed to have loaned the royal couple the home on Vancouver Island where they took time to finalize their plans to scale back their royal duties earlier this year.  

Giustra is close friends with Foster, who arranged for the Duke and Duchess to stay at the luxurious home for six weeks.

‘I felt honored that I was able to help Meghan there because I’m a Canadian and we’re a commonwealth country. It’s important to us, so I grew up with that kind of sentiment,’ Foster said to DailyMail.com at the time.

‘I was really happy to be able to help them to find a respite just to take a little time off,’ he added. 

‘I know that it was reinvigorating for them to spend some downtime. This is a great testament to my hometown of Victoria that they were able to go under the radar for so long.

‘I was just happy through my friend to facilitate what I could for them, and it looked like they had a great rest. They’re a young modern family. I’m sure they want to balance their commitment to the crown and be a 2020 family.”   

McPhee also spoke about how she attended the same Catholic school as Markle. The Duchess of Sussex was already at high school by the time McPhee was at the Los Angeles middle school.

‘She went to a school called Immaculate Heart, as did I. She went there for middle school and high school, and I went there just for middle school,’ McPhee explained.

‘I did a couple of shows with her and she was always put together and great,’ McPhee recalled. ‘I was never really close friends with her.’

She said that while she was performing in Waitress the musical in London, she and her husband, Foster, 70, got to speak with Prince Harry and Meghan.    

Last year, McPhee posted and Instagram snap featuring the Duchess from their school days. 

‘Meghan and I did musicals together as kids,’ McPhee wrote. ‘She grew up to be the Duchess of Sussex and I grew up to star on the West End, so same life if you ask me.’

From March 31 this year, Harry and Meghan stopped using their HRH styles and ceased to be senior working royals, in favor of a life of personal and financial freedom.

The couple, now living in Los Angeles where they have been in lockdown amid the coronavirus outbreak, are preparing to launch their new charitable organization Archewell – named after their son.

It will replace their now-defunct Sussex Royal brand, but plans to launch the venture have been delayed while the world battles the coronavirus.
