Princess Diana’s former butler said in a recent interview that he believes that one of the things that have drawn Prince Harry to Meghan Markle are her similarties to his late mother.

According to The Stir Paul Burrell worked for Princess Diana for 10 years, and wrote a book on the subject, in addition to weighing in on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex marriage.

"Harry went for and married Meghan because she's like Diana," he said, via PerthNow. "Both women who would always stand up for what they believe in and wouldn't be pushovers."

"I think, possibly, they would have clashed," Burrell added. "I imagine it would have been two strong, independent women with different views on things -- it would have been a battle between Meghan's way and Diana's way."

"I think the main difference between them is that Meghan has a game plan, whereas Diana was young and naive. Diana did the book with Andrew Morton and courted the press over the years because she didn't have a voice. And her strong-mindedness meant she cared and she felt the people of the country had a right to know what had gone on behind closed doors."

The Couple Seems To Have Kept Diana In Mind

According to the Express UK the couple have settled in the Los Angeles area for themselves and son Archie, and have settled, at least temporarily into a $20 million mansion, which was largely what was expected of the high profile couple.

According to royal expert Charlie Lankston, Meghan and Harry chose an area that could be related to Harry’s late mother Princess Dianna, despite moving away from the rest of the royal family. "Sources have told us that Meghan and Harry are staying in a $20million mansion in Malibu,” Lankston said, according to the Express.

The Area is Rumored To Be Where Dianna Was Planning To Live

"Now, this is interesting for a number of reasons. Malibu is nicely out of the way, it’s not right in the middle of LA, they’re not going to get that Hollywood, over the top lifestyle which I’m sure the two of them are not looking forward to getting involved into whatsoever.

"But it’s also in an area where it was rumoured that Princess Diana was planning to live with Dodi al-Fayed shortly before they died,” Lankston said according to the report.

According to the Express, Al-Fayed bought a house in the Malibu area in June 1997, just two months before he and the Princess of Wales died in a car crash. The princess, like Markle, made her fair share of waves in the royal family, bringing with her more progressiveness than the family has experienced in generations.

According to a report in about the couple’s move to the United States in Bossip “the couple wants lots of privacy and plenty of room for Archie to play.”
