Meghan Markle should stay close to Prince Harry, according to Princess Diana’s former royal butler.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been married for seven months already. However, some palace staff don’t think that their marriage will even last for a year. Paul Burrell advised Markle to stay close to her husband if she wants things to work out for them.

“They are going to set traps, there will be pitfalls along the way, but Harry will catch her, so stay close to him,” Burrell told Radar Online.

“But if you stray away from him and start to do things by yourself, that’s when there will be danger. That could prove to be difficult and dangerous.”

Burrell pointed out how the palace is filled with the biggest personalities and egos in the country. He added that everyone wants attention and position. He also compared Sandringham to “Downton Abbey on speed” that is so detached from the world.

Prince Harry and Markle are rumored to be feuding with Prince William and Kate Middleton. According to reports, the two duchesses have a ghastly row that began last year when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge invited the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to their Gregorian home in Norfolk.

Markle was reportedly judged as “downright rude” upon arrival. Middleton spoke with her but the latter felt that she was being “told off.” The former “Suits” star complained to Prince Harry who immediately took her side. However, Prince William defended his wife.

Some insiders claimed that the problem was not about Middleton and Markle. The two duchesses are very different, but they exert effort to be friendly toward each other. The two royal princes are reportedly the ones who are feuding.

Body language expert Judi James also noticed Prince Harry and Prince William’s lack of effort to show the public a picture of friendly reunion when they walked their way to attend the Christmas Day service in Sandringham. Both stuffed their hands into their pockets and looked ill at ease.

On the other hand, Middleton and Markle appeared friendly. They were seen smiling and chatting. However, James felt that it was just for the cameras and added that the Duchess of Cambridge exerted more effort to be friendly with Markle during the said sighting.
