Harry told the BBC that every family has its challenges and Markle has done an admirable job adapting to royal life so quickly. “She’s done an absolutely amazing job,” he said. “She’s getting in there and it’s the family that I suppose she’s never had.” Harry added that he and Markle are looking forward to 2018 and predicted it will be a “fantastic year.” Prince Harry snagged former President Obama for an interview as part of his stint as a guest editor for the BBC Radio 4 news program which aired Wednesday, discussing topics spanning current events and Harry’s upcoming wedding to Meghan Markle.
The royals have shared a friendship with the Obamas for several years. The newly-engaged prince briefly spoke about his Christmas spent with Markle and the royal family. Their royal wedding will be on May 19, 2018. Prince Harry recently revealed he and Markle still need to put together the guest list for their big day. “Post-Christmas… I just hope everyone out there has had a chance to just think about the things that really matter and the difference that every single one of us can make,” Prince Harry said at BBC Radio.
