posted in: Entertainment News | 0

Showing the love! Whoever said there should be beef between in-laws never met these celebrities. Duchess Meghan, Chris Pratt, Chris Hemsworth and more stars have expressed their adoration for their relatives through the years, whether in subtle or overt ways.

The Duchess of Sussex, for one, has warmed her way into the hearts of multiple royal family members since she and Prince Harry tied the knot in May 2018. Prince Charles, her now-father-in-law, stepped in at the last minute when Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle, was unable to attend the nuptials. The Prince of Wales walked the bride down the aisle at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle as his son waited for his then-bride-to-be.

Less than one month later, the former actress attended her first solo royal engagement with her grandmother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth II. “Meghan and the queen come from two very different backgrounds and generations,” a source revealed to Us Weekly in March 2019. “But there’s a warmth between the two that is genuine and loving. … Whenever they’re together, they always have a giggle.”

The insider added that the monarch could not wait “to have Meghan involved in the family business. … She seems really interested in hearing Meghan’s thoughts on the world.”

Though not yet married to fiancée Katherine Schwarzenegger, Pratt fangirled over her father, Arnold Schwarzenegger, years before the couple met. Luckily, the respect was mutual! (The Parks and Recreation alum proposed to the author in January 2019.)

As for Hemsworth, the actor does not talk much about his brother Liam Hemsworth’s relationship with wife Miley Cyrus. However, the Thor star put his high regard for the songstress on full display with a cheeky Instagram video in May 2018.

Congrats on the monster opening weekend, @prattprattpratt. You deserve it.” Three years later, the Guardians of the Galaxy star proposed to Arnold’s daughter Katherine.

Diaz reunited with the cast of My Best Friend’s Wedding in February 2019, at which time she detailed her sister-in-law’s obsession with the rom-com. “We went to Chicago, like, a year and a half ago, and she took me to every single [location]. She’s like, ‘Remember when you were walking down the street right here and then …’ It was so much fun,” the Charlie’s Angels actress recalled to Entertainment Weekly. “I was like, ‘Yes, I think I do.’ She’s like, ‘I do, and it really means a lot to me, so I would like for you to pretend you do.’” Richie and the Holiday star are married to twin brothers Joel and Benji Madden, respectively.

Clarkson, who is married to McEntire’s former stepson Brandon Blackstock, paid tribute to the country music icon at the 2018 Kennedy Center Honors. “Sometimes when we meet our heroes, it doesn’t always pan out how you hope. But meeting Reba — being friends with her, and eventually becoming family — has been one of the highlights of my life, truly,” the American Idol alum raved in December 2018. “So thank you so much for listening to me vent as an artist. Thank you so much for comforting me on the phone through my tears, like a friend. And thank you for being a really rad grandma for my kids.” The Reba alum split from Brandon’s dad, Narvel Blackstock, in August 2015.
