Prince Harry’s shocking pick for one of the godfathers of his impending bundle of joy with wife Meghan Markle will be the man who was chosen to be the “second father” of Princess Diana’s sons after her death.
Radar Online reported that Mark “Marko” Dyer will be asked to have the honor as he helped Harry through some tough times when he was a teenager. Radar said the appointment would be “a tribute and repayment” to Dyer, a former Welsh Guards officer.
Prince Charles reportedly asked Dryer to look after his sons during their first school holiday after Princess Diana’s death in 1997, alleged Radar. Reportedly he and Harry remained close all these years later.
Radar quoted royal writer Penny Juror as saying of Dryer, “he’s been invaluable; he had done a superb job in supporting and guiding both princes through their adolescence and showing them something of the world.”
Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle, who is seven months pregnant with the couple’s first child, will soon head off to an official engagement in North Africa. The couple is reportedly headed to Morocco. They will be there, according to Kensington Palace’s official Twitter, from February 23 through February 25.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will visit Morocco from Saturday 23rd February to Monday 25th February 2019. This visit is at the request of Her Majesty's Government.
