The Sun reports that Ken Wharfe – who worked for the late Princess for eight years – would have liked that Harry “had married an American divorcee”.

“I can see Diana putting two fingers up to the monarchy on the strength of that one, saying, ‘This is fantastic, this is the future of this family, this is the way it has to be’,” he said.

“Meghan is a consummate performer with her theatrical background, which gives her a huge advantage in dealing with the public.

“I remember her first public engagement with Harry in Nottingham, I think it was, and later at a radio station in Brixton and she was so brilliant in dealing with the media and talking to people with sincerity in her voice. Diana would have liked that.”

The Royal couple made sure Diana was represented at their son Archie’s christening ceremony.

In a touching acknowledgement, Diana’s two older sisters, Lady Jane Fellowes and Lady Sarah McCorquodale, were included into the family group.

Harry, Meghan and Archie were also seen sitting on an ornate, two-seat green sofa with gold detail.

It was the same chair that Diana and the Queen sat on in the official photos from Harry’s christening.
