"Meghan is the one who has instigated it," the source explained. "It isn’t Simon going to them. Simon adores Prince Harry and always has done and Prince Harry used to come to the X Factor back in the day. But it was Meghan who reached out.
“She’s always been a huge fan of Simon Cowell and his shows. Meghan actually did a video message to a contestant called Archie on America’s Got Talent and showed her support."
The source went on to explain that while Simon is incredibly busy and is currently recovering after breaking his back, he's more than happy to help Meghan and 36 year old Prince Harry in any way that he can.

They continued: “It’s Meghan who is pushing it because she’s always been fond of Simon. She’s a bit of a fan to say the least. She’s the one pushing for it after wanting to leave the royal family and live in LA.
"She wants to be a success and wants to be associated with some of the most successful, powerful people. And Simon is one of those people.
“Simon is still recovering in Malibu at the minute and he’s concentrating on TV ideas, so he’s very busy. But he will be there for them and offer help if they want it."

"Meghan wants to prove a point that she is going to be a success at this. Simon is happy to help because he’s very fond of Prince Harry.
"Whether they’ll work together is another thing, but Meghan would love it if they did.”
