"But then, as I said, [she] would've probably been best friends with Meghan," he told the BBC. "It is days like today when I really miss having her around and miss being able to share the happy news, but with the [engagement] ring and with everything else that's going on, I'm sure she's with us, jumping up and down somewhere else."
