Princess Diana may be partly blamed for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s ongoing obsession with privacy.

While speaking with Express, royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams said that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex must have been feeling that they restricted by conventional royal life. When Princess Diana was still alive, this is exactly how she felt as well.

Prince Harry and Markle are also being criticized for their decision to ride a private jet to and from London with their son Archie. But Fitzwilliams said that the royal couple didn’t have any other choice because they were obsessed with being private citizens.

As private individuals, Prince Harry and Markle do not want to make headlines all the time. However, every decision is still being criticized by the public.

Meanwhile, Princess Diana has also impacted the royal couple in an entirely different way.

“The Sussex Brand has a unique global reach, their aim undoubtedly is to champion various causes, for Harry, it’s Sentebale and Invictus, for Meghan female empowerment and diversity, for them both mental health together with the Cambridges. There is vast global interest in them, their contacts with top celebrities are amazing, they have a marvelous way of working the crowds at home and abroad… Meghan has a huge influence on fashion and the fascination with Archie is endless… Diana is clearly their inspiration,” he said.

And as such, Fitzwilliams noted the fact that there are some rumors surrounding the royal couple’s plans for the future. There are some claims suggesting that they could spend most of their time abroad instead of the United Kingdom to avoid constant scrutiny.

“Any extended stay abroad would have huge security costs and we are unaware of their plans for Archie’s future. This is obviously the way it is heading. It will raise questions as to what their role in the UK actually is as opposed to what they want it to be… It will be exciting as well as perilous to see what happens as they do things their way,” he said.
