What Advice Would Princess Diana Give to Meghan Markle About Famliy Drama?

There’s no way that anyone couldn’t possibly know about the family drama Meghan Markle is currently experiencing. Her sister, Samantha Markle, has been giving interviews and posting to social media relentlessly, bashing the duchess each and every time the opportunity arises. She doesn’t hesitate to make hurtful comments about her younger half-sister, and even her new brother-in-law, Prince Harry, who she has never met.

Although Samantha is causing the majority of the drama, her half-brother, Thomas Markle Jr., as well as her father, Thomas Markle Sr., have been making things difficult for Meghan in recent months as well. It’s no doubt hurtful to the Duchess of Sussex, leaving many fans to wonder what advice her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, would give her during this difficult time.

Harry is sure that Meghan and Diana would have been extremely close

Royal fans certainly remember when Diana tragically died in August 1997. Prince Harry was just 12 years old when he lost his mother, and his brother, Prince William, was only 15. The two young princes leaned on each other for support during this dark time in their lives, as they were extremely close to Diana, and losing her so suddenly was devastating.

When William married Kate Middleton in 2011, fans speculated that she and Diana would have been very close friends. Additionally, when Harry and Meghan had their engagement interview in November 2017, Harry famously stated that Meghan and his mother would have been as “thick as thieves”. 

Meghan leans on her friends for support

All of the drama that Meghan’s family is causing is certainly unnecessary, and most likely hurts her deeply. Although neither she nor Harry has spoken out publicly regarding the situation, fans can only imagine how hurt Meghan must be. Samantha even made a trip to London to see her sister and was photographed being turned away by Kensington Palace security. Something that huge sends quite a message. In the midst of all of the drama, Meghan has plenty of close friends to lean on when she needs to talk or needs support. She is very tight with Amal Clooney, as well as Priyanka Chopra, and her best friend, Jessica Mulroney.

Is Meghan getting support from the royal family members?

Of course, she is! The royal family is famously private, so no one would expect any of them to give a public statement regarding the drama that Meghan is dealing with. However, Meghan is very close to Harry’s father, Prince Charles, who undoubtedly gives her support when she needs it. She also has a strong relationship with her new sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, and can most likely pop over to her apartment at Kensington Palace whenever she needs to!

Will the drama stop anytime soon?

Unfortunately, fans don’t expect the drama to stop anytime soon, as Meghan and Harry will be welcoming their first child in a few weeks. This leaves plenty of opportunities for the Markle family to cause even more drama for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, as they have already expressed their desire to see the new baby, and Meghan and Harry have not voiced their intentions of allowing them to do so.

What advice would Diana have?

Most likely, Diana would tell Meghan to stay true to what she believes in, and never let anyone get her down. Diana was a strong and practical woman, and she would have wanted the best for the wife of her youngest son. Fans know that Diana would have always been there to comfort and guide Meghan, and would always be by her side no matter what!
