Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are reportedly taking parenting tips from the late Princess Diana.

In the documentary “Meghan’s New Life: The Real Princess Diaries,” ABC royal contributor Royal Nikkah said that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are thinking of how to give their baby a life that has not yet been mapped out even before its birth.

“Harry has spoken very much about how he appreciated his mother Diana trying to give him as normal of a life as possible. He wants to do the same for his child, and so does Meghan,” she said.

Imogen Lloyd Webber, a fellow contributor for ABC, said that Prince Harry and Markle will also be very hands-on just like the Princess of Wales. Prince Harry’s mom served as the first viable hands-on royal mother, and she was also a supporter of breastfeeding. Princess Diana also traveled overseas with her sons regularly.

In the 2013 Netflix documentary “The Royals,” writer and journalist Anne de Courcy said that royal pregnancies were typically kept under wraps years ago. And once a female royal becomes pregnant, she would normally stay at home. But Princess Diana was very much visible throughout her two pregnancies.

The Princess of Wales also paraded her growing baby bump during some of her engagements. Prince Charles’ ex-wife also showed how proud she was while she was pregnant with Prince William and Prince Harry. This is something that Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have also done.

Ingrid Seward, the editor of Majesty magazine, said that she couldn’t a recall a single picture of Queen Mother while she was pregnant. And there were only a few photos of Queen Elizabeth II during her four pregnancies.

“It was a private time, you weren’t photographed in the streets – people probably thought it was rude to photograph a member of the royal family when they were expecting a baby,” Seward said.

Queen Elizabeth II’s four children are Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward.
