Duchess Meghan and Prince Charles share a laugh at Commonwealth Day service

Meghan Markle shared a cute moment with father-in-law Prince Charles at the Commonwealth Day church service at Westminster Abbey on Monday afternoon.

As the friendly duo waited just inside the stunning church for the Queen to arrive alongside Prince Harry, Duchess Camilla, Prince William and Duchess Kate, videographers for the BBC caught them chatting. Though it's unclear what their conversation was about, it was clearly a funny one, as Meghan burst into laughter at one point in response to a comment by Charles.

Of course, Meghan and Charles sharing fun moments together at royal engagements is nothing new. The pair has gotten along incredibly well since Meghan starting dating his son, and the former "Suits" actress famously asked Charles to walk her down the aisle at her royal wedding last May after her father opted not to fulfill his fatherly duties after allegedly suffering a heart attack.

The Daily Mail's royal expert Angela Levin shed light on their bond back in November, explaining that Meghan's incessant family drama has actually made Charles more fond of his new daughter-in-law.

"Anyone who thinks the soap-opera antics of Meghan’s father, half sister, and half brother have affected Charles’ feelings for his new daughter-in-law couldn’t be more wrong," Levin wrote at the time. "'On the contrary,' I was told by an immaculate source close to the prince. 'There have been so many traumas and crises within the personal life of the royal family, from the Duke of Windsor onwards. And many royal divorces. That’s why the Duchess of Sussex’s troubled family background has endeared her to Charles even more.'"

Not only that, but the duo also shares a passion for the arts that has brought them even closer.

"It’s not just dysfunctional families that unite Charles and Meghan. They have bonded over art, history, and culture," Levin explained. "Meghan is particularly keen to learn about earlier royals and the artists who have painted them. The prince believes she is ‘incredibly smart’ and, having been trained by the Hollywood machine, is uniquely equipped to cope with the endlessly scrutinized life of a royal."

Adding to Meghan's fabulous relationship with her husband's father is the connection that she's made to Charles' wife, Duchess Camilla. It's their similar experiences as initial outsiders that they've bonded over.

"'Camilla gets on very well with her too,' continued the source. 'Not least because both of them have joined the royal family from the outside. Camilla goes out of her way to find time to spend with Meghan, to get to know her and make her feel welcome. She’s the ideal mother-in-law,'" Levin wrote.

At Monday's Commonwealth Day service, Meghan's improving relationship with sister-in-law Kate Middleton was also on full display. In just their second joint appearance of 2019, Meghan and Kate greeted one another inside Westminster Abbey with a friendly kiss on the cheek.
