Although Meghan Markle never met Princess Diana, her marriage with Prince Harry has allowed the former “Suits” star the opportunity to learn more about the late princess. As a result, the 38-year-old has continuously assured her husband that his work has honored his mother.

Princess Diana died in 1997 following a fatal car crash in Paris. The Princess of Wales’ driver allegedly tried to outrun paparazzi who were trying to get a picture of the royal when he lost control of the car.

Although the Duke of Sussex was young at the time of his mother’s death, he was devastated about the loss and struggled to process his emotions for years. Since her passing, Prince Harry has followed in his mother’s footsteps.

Sources told Us Weekly that Meghan has reportedly noticed his dedication to the same causes Princess Diana once supported.

The Duchess of Sussex has been impressed by her husband’s passion and is “constantly telling him his mom would be so proud of him.”

The couple’s royal tour of Africa with their baby boy, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, has been an “emotional” experience for Prince Harry. Before her death, Diana brought attention to issues plaguing the continent.

“It’s been an extremely emotional journey for Harry,” the insider revealed.

However, those close to Prince Harry revealed it is important for the royal to keep his mother’s memory alive and give back to something she cared about.

“Having the opportunity to continue his mom’s work there is extremely meaningful,” the confidant told the publication.

“It’s his way of paying tribute to Diana,” the insider added.

Following their 10 day visit, Prince Harry and Meghan wrapped up their tour of Africa on Wednesday. According to, the couple and their son arrived in the UK on Thursday morning. The family traveled on a commercial British Airways flight and landed at London’s Heathrow Airport.
