Princess Diana would have been torn to “watch her beloved sons at each other’s throats”, a royal biographer has claimed.
Andrew Morton, who has published biographies of royal figures such as Diana and celebrities such as Tom Cruise and Angelina Jolie , believes the Princess of Wales would have been hurt by the events which have unfold in the Royal Family in recent months.
He said that, while writing her biography, Diana told him she had given birth to two boys so they could give each other mutual support.
“Harry’s a back-up, in the nicest possible way,” she told the writer.
“William is going to be in his position much earlier than people think now.”
“Diana would be doing everything she could to heal the wound,” Mr Morton told The Sun .
“She would be knocking heads together, while understanding that only another prince knows what it is like to be raised as such.”
He added that the public bust-up between William and Harry would have been “deeply troubling” for Diana.
The biographer added William and Harry have a “unique bond”.
He said Diana would also have immense sympathy for Meghan, especially because of their similar life stories.
Just like the Duchess of Sussex, Princess Diana had been married to Charles for about a year when she was accused of having driven out her husband’s closest allies and longest-serving staff.
Diana also found the royal life stifling and the rules tiresome.
She lost her HRH title when she divorced Prince Charles in 1996.
After announcing their intention to step back as senior roles of the Royal Family, Meghan and Harry also added they would pay for the renovations to their UK home, Frogmore Cottage .
Yesterday, a statement from Buckingham Palace confirmed that the couple will stop using their HRH titles, although they will still keep them.
They will be commonly referred to as Harry, Duke of Sussex and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.
The Queen released a statement wishing the couple a “happy and peaceful new life”, adding she has been aware of the issues facing the pair for some time.
“Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much-loved members of my family,” she said.
“I am pleased that together we have found a constructive and supportive way forward for my grandson and his family.”
The Queen also praised Meghan, saying she was proud of how quickly she had become part of the family.
