Princess Diana's pal Tina Brown says she WOULD NOT have been a fan of Meghan Markle!
Tina Brown, who is also a former friend of Princess Diana, offered her views on the occasion of Diana's 25th death anniversary
LONDON, ENGLAND: On the occasion of Princess Diana's 25th death anniversary, her former friend and royal historian Tina Brown offered her views on what Diana's dynamic would have been with the Duchess of Sussex. According to her, the 'People's Princess' would probably not have been a "great fan" of Meghan Markle.
Furthermore, were Princess Diana alive, she would have felt that the 41-year-old was "steering Harry in a direction that was not good," Brown said. She added that the doting mother would, nevertheless, be "thrilled" to meet the woman who makes her youngest son, Prince Harry, happy.
Speaking to the Daily Beast, Brown noted that while Markle may believe that she would have had Diana's approval, this might not be entirely true. The award-winning journalist added that her late friend would have been "delighted, supportive and thrilled someone of mixed race was joining the royal family because Diana was so inclusive."
Brown, who is also the author of several books including the 'Diana Chronicles', is now seeking to promote her latest work, 'The Palace Papers.' According to her, Prince Harry's actions have come as a continuation of the 'War of Wales'. This means that he is seeking to continue "his mother Diana's campaign to disrupt" his father's future reign. Brown, therefore, describes Harry as a "disruptive force."
To top it off, she believes Meghan's actions certainly haven't helped her cause. "Meghan got angry so fast, and that's what's rocked the family. They're still reeling and just baffled why it seemed to go wrong so quickly." The exit of the Sussexes, in addition to the infamous tell-all interview with Oprah and further confirmation of the Duke of Sussex penning a book, has caused the family "great pain."
Prince Charles and Princess Diana's youngest "has become a disruptive force in the family...It's a very destabilizing factor," she adds.
Princess Diana died on August 31, 1997, after her Mercedes crashed in the Pont de l'Alma tunnel after being pursued by paparazzi. She was leaving the Ritz Hotel in Paris with her partner Dodi Fayed. 2022 marked 25 years since her death, and both her sons paid their respects privately. The two have always come together on the sad occasion, including the previous year when they unveiled a bronze statue of their mother that they had jointly commissioned.
