Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are quite the social couple. From global star Priyanka Chopra to everyone’s go-to talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, the couple is good friends with most of the Hollywood industry. After their knight-winning move with Megxit, the couple ensured that the tabloids have something to talk about for quite a while. And despite three years having passed since then, they are yet to be found missing from the headlines and the front pages. Despite the controversies, the couple has quite a lot of big names standing in their support. And one such name is that of James Haskell.
