The late Princess Diana wouldn’t have been a “great fan” of Meghan Markle, royal biographer Tina Brown believes.
The “Palace Papers” author speculated in a new interview that there may have been drama between the in-laws over Markle leaving the British monarchy with Diana’s son Prince Harry in early 2020, leaving him “cut off” from his family.
“Diana was very protective of her boys,” Brown told the Daily Beast Wednesday, referencing Harry and his older brother, Prince William.
“She would have been very, very protective of Harry and I believe very anxious about this direction they’ve taken. I think she would have felt Meghan was steering Harry in a direction that was not good for Harry,” she theorized.
“I don’t think Diana would have been the great fan of Meghan that Meghan herself might perhaps imagine.”
Nevertheless, Brown believes Diana would have been “thrilled” when her younger son met the “Suits” alum.
“She would have been delighted, supportive and thrilled someone of mixed race was joining the royal family because Diana was so inclusive,” the “Diana Chronicles” author noted.
Brown, who last saw Diana in New York City one month before the princess’ death at age 36 in August 1997, also claimed the late royal would be “very unhappy” that her two sons’ relationship remains strained.
