As someone who married into royalty, "commoner" Mike Tindall knows all about the pressure to impress England's top family. He did it flawlessly, and he's confident Meghan Markle can do the same.
Mike, a former rugby player, married Prince William and Prince Harry's cousin Zara Phillips in July 2011.
"It comes with a lot of history and the family that it is. It's obviously nerve-racking," Mike said. "But she has been under enough scrutiny and pressure in her day-to-day life so I'm sure she will get through it. She will be fine."
He added, "As long as they are both happy that's all that you can ask for. She'll do absolutely fine."
Nether Mike nor his wife have met Meghan, but he said they are looking forward to it.
For the former rugby stud, he has an ulterior motive for wanting to meet Meghan, too.
"I'm obviously a big 'Suits' fan," he said, referring to the USA show in which Meghan stars in. "It's a very good show. I will definitely try and get the inside scoop on it."
Meghan has reportedly already met Prince William, Duchess Kate and Harry's father, Prince Charles.
Last week the actress celebrated her 36th birthday by reuniting with her beau in Botswana.
Earlier this year, one of Harry's pals told Us Weekly that the affable royal and the "ethnically ambiguous" actress "will be engaged by the end of summer."
An engagement wouldn't be a complete surprise to Meghan either.
They "have spoken candidly about their future. They see a life together," the source told the mag. "Meghan feels a move to London is inevitable. It's not like Harry can uproot!... She's started thinking of the bigger picture."
