Prince Harry introduces bride-to-be Meghan Markle to his beloved childhood nanny

She was the prince’s nanny at the time of his mother Princess Diana’s death, when he was only 12-years-old.

Prince Harry has introduced fiancée Meghan Markle to the other special woman in his life: Tiggy Legge-Bourke.
Tiggy, the royal's beloved childhood nanny, was hired by Prince Charles in 1993 after his split from Princess Diana. She caused a stir after referring to Harry and his brother Prince William as "my babies" and for puffing cigarettes near the two boys.
Nonetheless, the headline-grabbing nanny continued in the position and became a great source of comfort to the royal brothers following the untimely death of their mother in 1997. It's understood Tiggy was with the young royals when the news of their mother's death was broken to them at Balmoral Castle.
According to royal insiders, Harry carried out the introduction between Meghan and Tiggy after an official visit to Cardiff on Thursday.
"Harry couldn't wait to introduce Meghan to Tiggy," a source told The Sun. "She's a very significant person in Harry's life, almost like a mother-figure, as she looked after Harry when Princess Diana died."
The insider further revealed that although Meghan and Tiggy are two very different women, they got on "famously."
Despite a series of controversial headlines, Tiggy was a great source of comfort to Harry after the tragic loss of his mother.

Harry, 33, and Meghan, 36, recently became engaged over a roast chicken dinner at their home, Nottingham Cottage on the grounds of Kensington Palace.
"It happened a few weeks ago, earlier this month, here at our cottage; just a standard typical night for us. Roasting a chicken… trying to roast a chicken," Harry said of the private moment during an interview with BBC News broadcaster Mishal Husain.
"She didn't even let me finish, she said 'can I say yes, can I say yes?' and then there were hugs and I had the ring in my finger and I was like can I -- can I give you the ring? She goes -- oh yes the ring."
"It was a really nice moment, it was just the two of us and I think managed to catch her by surprise as well."
Meghan added: "It was so sweet and natural and very romantic."
The pair will tie the knot at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle on May 19.
