This week, Britain together with the whole world get excited to watch probably the biggest wedding of the year. We talk about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle who will tie the knot on May 19.
In front of the big event, we decided to find out what Princess Diana’s close friend thinks about Harry and William’s lovebirds. Would Diana approve her sons’ choice?
Who is Marie Sutton?
Our friends can say a lot about us. Do you agree with the saying "Show me who your friends are and I’ll tell you who you are?" The people we choose to be around may know us better than we think.
Everyone who was lucky to know Princess Diana in person said she was a woman with a big heart. One of the princess’ close friends, Marie Sutton, first met Her Highness at a tea party in Hunter Valley 35 years ago.
After two women started talking, Sutton confessed Diana made a huge impression on her. Marie asked the princess to be a guest speaker at a fundraiser ball and was surprised when Diana accepted her offer and even called her next day to thank for the invitation. From this moment, their friendship began.
What would Princess Diana say?
In an exclusive interview with Woman's Day podcast team, Ms. Sutton revealed that Diana used to talk to her about her relationship with Charles as well as about her worries about little William and Harry.
Marie also said what, in her opinion, Diana would have thought about Harry and William’s lovebirds, Kate and Meghan.
She would have been happy whoever they married. She wanted both sons to be happy.
You can watch Marie's interview in this video:
Another person who knew Princess Diana very well also shared his opinion about Prince Harry’s bride-to-be, Meghan Markle. This person is her former butler, Paul Burrell.
Burrell told Good Morning Britain that Diana was always anxious Harry should find his role in life because it’s not easy for the second son, and she was worried about him finding happiness. As for Harry’s fiancée, Mr. Burrell said:
I think she would have approved.
It seems like Meghan Markle got an approval from Princess Diana’s close people. We wish Harry and Meghan to be very happy in their family life.
