The 60-year-old revealed that the Duchess “is trying to be” like her mother-in-law, and it might be a problem. But would the Princess actually like Meghan?

What kind of relationship the two royal women would have had?

Princess Diana's former butler thinks that the two royal women would have become very friendly. He believes that the late Princess would have given Meghan a hug and become her "greatest adviser."

He declared:

I think Diana would have embraced her. I think she would have been her greatest adviser. And I think that link is missing, which is very sad that she can’t relate to her mother in law who went through all of this when she was 18 years old, not 37.

Burrell claimed that Princess Diana was very “naive” when she married Prince Charles, but she had to quickly learn how to be a part of the royal family and how to deal with media.

He said:

That’s the difference between Meghan and the Princess. It’s the fact that Diana was only 18 when she came into the Royal Family. She didn’t know anything about the media, she had to learn quickly.

Previously, the former royal butler stated that Prince Harry’s mom not only would have approved of Meghan – she “would have chosen” the former actress for her son herself.

That’s quite a bold statement, but, judging by how happy Harry seems since meeting his wife, Mr. Burrell might not be far from the truth.
