Oh, Daddy! Prince Harry's new 'father figure' is David Foster

He's been said to be feeling 'lost' in his new Stateside home, far from friends, family and his previous life, but Prince Harry has reportedly found a 'father figure' in California.

According to the Duchess of Sussex's close friend, Katharine McPhee, Harry has become close to her husband, David Foster.

'My husband has a really, really beautiful relationship with Harry,' McPhee she told the TV show Access Hollywood. 'They're like, they're so cute. They're like father and son. We just stay in touch with them. But mostly, Meghan and I knew each other from childhood, but really Harry and my husband are friends, so it's really nice.'

The Court Circular is your inside track on the latest happenings in the Royal Family, covering the biggest stories shaping the monarchy right now.

Foster of course was the man who helped arrange Harry and Meghan's Vancouver Island accommodation, after connecting them to the mysterious owner of the sprawling home where they spent Christmas, the New Year and the earlier part of this year.

McPhee also credits him with helping the royal couple find their Pacific Palisades home, saying: 'David is the resource guy. He knows all the places. He loves to help people. We just want them to end up wherever they feel safest and happiest.'

An LA power player on the music scene, Foster works as a record producer and music executive, with artists such as Christina Aguilera, Mary J Blige and Michael Bublé all produced by him. Yet he is also well-known for his five marriages - often to other well-connected Hollywood types.

From 1991 to 2005 he was married to Linda Thompson, a former model and the ex-wife of Caitlyn Jenner (then Bruce), with Foster acting as step-father to her two sons, Brody and Brandon Jenner (the half-brothers of Kendall and Kylie Jenner). He was next married to Yolanda Hadid from 2011-2017, another former model, and the mother of Gigi, Bella and Anwar Hadid, before marrying McPhee in 2018.

He had one child aged 20, Allison, who he gave up for adoption and reconnected with when she was an adult, plus three daughters with his second wife, Rebecca Dyer, named Sara, Erin and Jordan. His daughter Sara is married to former tennis star Tommy Haas.

David Foster is physically incapable of entering a room without going "Hi, I'm David Foster - you know, *the* David Foster??????" so it makes sense that Meghan approves of this friendship since she has the exact same problem.

It must kill Meghan that the dimly-“talented” Katharine McPhee has a stronger golddigger game than she does.

Although, I take that back. Foster might have a heavy load of financial obligations. Ex-wives and alimony, etc. And I’d rather have Harry’s balls in my mouth than David’s, so maybe it’s a draw....

I see McPhee is going the predictable LA look of women who marry rich. Overly done plastic surgeries, botox, and fillers to look 15-20 years older than their actual age because it's a status symbol to look so bad. It means you have so much money and time for unnecessary procedures, who cares if you look like a budding Jocelyn Wildenstein/ Lauren Sanchez?

R16 Meghan's name is engraved in the history books forever. McPhee's name is on the cocktail napkins.

I will always remember this podcast I was listening to where a young gay singer songwriter who actually went to school with Bella recounts his evening at the Foster's house after some school play or production. The guy says he was excited to get the opportunity to play with David, who sat very close to him on the piano bench. He also said that David offered to be a very good mentor to his career, and that he enjoyed his company. So there is that. His wives area all these ice princesses who immediately lose their sexuality as soon as they are with him - even if they started out as a whore to the Princes of the UAE.

How typical of the Sussexes to claim that the renovations to Frogmore Cottage were no different than for any other royals' homes, but because it's THEM, it's used as a "stick to beat them with".

The difference is actually blindingly clear: the renovations to OTHER royals' homes were based on the same assumption that the ones to the Sussexes' were - the home would be a lifetime permanent HOME BASE from which they would carry out their duties to the British monarchy, the British government, and the British taxpayer.

But they gave up the fucking job. It isn't their "home base" any longer. It's their occasional UK bolthole so they can continue to boast to the world that they're royal.

AMERICA is their real, permanent home base now.

That's the difference and that's why it's being used to beat them over the head: they took the perks on a false premise: that they could make their plans to get out, but still retain their full royal perks.

Kate and William agreed to remain in Kensington Palace till the day William becomes King. They will retain Anmer Hall as their country home until William becomes King.

Harry and Meghan spent less than a few months all told at Frogmore Cottage, yet still cannot understand why the public is upset at the money for a place the Sussexes will probably spend no more than a couple of months a year in.

Oh, it's because she's mixed race, that's right.
