Princess Diana tragically died in a car accident in August 1997 in a death that rocked the nation and according to her former butler Paul Burrell, if she was alive, Prince Harry, her youngest son, would not have married Meghan Markle.

Burrell, who served as Diana's butler from 1987 up until her death in 1997, said Harry would have married a "young aristocratic lady from England" rather than the American Markle.

The 64-year-old said: “Had she had her way and if she was still here, Harry wouldn’t be doing what he’d be doing now.

“He probably would’ve married Cressida Bonas or Chelsea Davy, or a young aristocratic lady from England and settled down in the Royal Family, in his routine which he loved.

“He loved the army, his uniforms, his public service and they would’ve buckled down to it.

“But this is my theory; when he lost his mother aged 11 he was lost, in a wilderness, completely lost until he met a 36-year-old, mature woman who whispered in his ear that she wanted to change the world. He didn’t hear Meghan’s voice, he heard his mother’s voice.

“That’s what changed the game.”
