MEGHAN MARKLE has been treated as badly as Princess Diana, according to the late Princess’ butler, who branded Buckingham Palace a “minefield” and questioned whether the Duchess of Sussex can cope.

Former Royal butler, Paul Burrell, blasted the Royal Family as “nasty” on a Channel 5 documentary called “Kate V Meghan: Princesses at war’. He also defended the Duchess amid accusations of of her being a “diva” and feuding with Kate, Duchess of Cambridge. He further claimed Buckingham Palace is like “Downton on speed”.

Comparing Meghan’s treatment to Diana’s, Mr Burrell said: “Meghan has married into the most traditional family in the country, the Royal Family. How is she going to cope?

“Princess Diana was brought up in a house that was as big as Buckingham Palace, and even she was lost.”

He added: “Buckingham Palace is a minefield for any person going in there for a first time.

Mr Burrell claimed when Diana went to Buckingham Palace there were “pitfalls” and she found it difficult to adjust as people were not nice to her.

He said: “People set traps, they weren’t very kind to this young girl coming into this world.”

The documentary focused on the alleged Royal rift between the wives of Prince William and Prince Harry.

There have been reports the two do not see eye to eye and Meghan and Harry moving out of Kensington Palace had something to do with a fall out between the women.

Mr Burrell dismissed these claims as “manufactured to sell papers”.

However, another speaker on the programme, journalist Caroline Malone, disagreed.

She said: “Contrary to popular belief, journalists do not make up stories.”

Ms Malone said the rumour must have come from a worker inside Kensington Palace.
