For the Royal Family, Meghan Markle has been dubbed “far worse and uncontrollable” than Princess Diana.
This accusation was made by Tina Brown, a biographer and author of The Palace Papers.
When Meghan Markle joined the fold, she said the Palace was keen to prevent ‘another Princess Diana.’
“Ever since the death of Diana in 1997, the Queen had made it clear to all those who advised her that it could never happen again—the it being Diana’s exploding stardom,” she said in an interview with Marie Claire.
“At the summit of the Palace, the most frequent phrase was ‘we don’t want another Diana.'”
“They’d been chugging away for 20 years, attempting to prove that everyone was now in line,” Ms Brown continued.
“However, the amazing and intriguing part about this family tale, which is why it makes such good material, is fate steps in and brings Meghan to Harry,” says the author. And then it’s like everything happened all over again.”
Meghan was “not going to be obedient to this notion of hierarchy and royalty” because she is a “star, a lady with a lot of her own charisma and a strong will of her own, a strong sense of independence.”
“They had it all over again, and, in a way that was almost more unmanageable because Diana was a child, really, when she married.”
