During Meghan’s public appearances, it's clear why people like her. She comes across as down-to-earth, friendly, and approachable, just like her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana. Some have even said Meghan copies Diana’s endearing gestures, such as the 'baby wave' and lowered head.

Body language expert Judi James told Express.co.uk:

The ‘baby wave’ is a technique mastered by Princess Diana before her and it works in three ways: Firstly, the lowered hand, held at shoulder level with the palm facing forward, projects an unassuming, almost non-regal approach to the fans and the public.

Can Duchess Meghan’s likability actually hurt her?

Prince Harry and Meghan’s Markle popularity has soared, and people have been calling Meghan 'the new People’s Princess'. But she needs to be careful, says Tina Brown, author of Diana Chronicles.

In an exclusive interview, Brown told Us Weekly:

I think [Duchess Meghan] is doing an amazing job, but I think, funny enough, she’s going to face many of the problems that Diana faced or is facing.

Brown went on to explain one specific issue with the Meghan and Diana's popularity, known as 'The Upstage Problem'. When Diana married Charles, she became so popular that it seemed her royal husband had to live in her shadow.

However, it’s different with Harry and Meghan, as Harry is much more well-liked than his dad. Still, Meghan appears to be more talked-about than her husband.

Brown also stressed that Meghan needs to come to terms with the fact that she’s not going to be queen:

Well, I think Meghan, who’s smart, must be very careful and aware that actually, for all the glamour and excitement surrounding her, she’s not the next in line to be queen.

Diana would have loved Meghan, says Sarah Ferguson

Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, knew late Princess Diana well. They were friends. Speaking on Good Morning Britain, Sarah said Diana would have loved Meghan and her other daughter-in-law, Kate:

I honestly think [Diana] would be so proud of the wonderful Meghan and Catherine as well. She’d embrace them and say: “You’re doing well!”

Sounds right!
