Princess Diana would’ve been a godsend to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle because of one unique quality that she possessed.

When the Princess of Wales was still alive, she was known as the first-ever member of the royal family to be great with children. Her former photographer, Arthur Edwards said that Princess Diana’s love for children would’ve made her a good companion for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son, Archie.

“I can’t tell you when… with very sick children, she was fantastic with them. She hugged them and, you know, you never saw a member of the royal family hug a baby before and hold them in her arms… In Pakistan… really sick kids,” he said.

If Princess Diana was still alive, Edwards thinks that she might constantly play with her grandchildren. And the minute that Prince Harry, Markle, Prince William, and Kate Middleton see this, they would also be very thrilled and happy.

Unfortunately, Prince William and Prince Harry’s children never had the chance to meet their grandmother. But in their own little way, the royal siblings have figured out ways to make sure that their children would know who Princess Diana was.

For instance, it was recently revealed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex displayed a photo of the Princess of Wales inside Archie’s nursery. Prince William also shares stories about his late mother to Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

Princess Diana passed away on Aug. 31, 1997, following a fatal car crash in Paris. Shortly after her death was confirmed, royal fans and experts couldn’t help but feel devastated. Edwards said that the day of Princess Diana’s death was a terrible tragedy, and it’s also something that he will always remember for the rest of his life.

“I can imagine when Prince Charles had to wake Harry and William and tell them that their mother was dead must have been the worst thing he ever did,” he said.
