Princess Diana’s former butler has defended the Duchess of Sussex and offered one piece of advice for the royal as she settles into the royal “minefield”.
Speaking openly on British documentary Kate V Meghan: Princesses At War, Paul Burrell claimed it would not be an easy transition for Meghan as she adjusts to the royal life.
The 60-year-old even went as far to question “who would want to be part of that family” .
“Buckingham Palace is a minefield for any person going in there for the first time,” The Mirror reports he said on the documentary.
“Stay close to Harry and get to know his granny – she’s the one that matters most.”
Controversial royal commentator Lady Colin Campbell also shared her thoughts on the royal family claiming Prince Harry has “considerably changed” and it has a lot to do with his wife Meghan.
The writer said the young royal is “beguiled” by the Duchess of Sussex, The Daily Mail reports.
The 69-year-old, who has published three books about the British royal family, suggested Meghan has had a big influence on Harry since they exchanged vows early last year.
“Everything I hear is that Harry is completely beguiled by Meghan and completely enthralled to her and has changed considerably,” The Daily Mail reports she said.
Adding: “People do change when they get married”.
This follows news from a close friend of the pair that the sweet couple are very much in love.
English journalist Bryony Gordon, who spoke candidly to Harry about his mental health in a podcast two years ago, recently opened up about the newlywed’s “happy” relationship.
Speaking on UK talk show Lorraine on Thursday, Bryony revealed: “[They are] so adorable. I saw them recently and genuinely lovely, happy, you know – first flushes of love, first year of being married – I’m like, ‘just you wait!”
The author also revealed Meghan is “really lovely and down to earth”, despite rumours swirling around that the duchess is a diva.
“I think if you put any family under the microscope you will find weird dynamics that could make headlines, but fundamentally I think they are a really lovely couple,” she said.
