Princess Diana’s butler issues Meghan Markle a warning

Paul Burrell hits out at the Duchess

Princess Diana’s former butler has issued Meghan Markle a warning.

Paul Burrell has publically spoken to say that Meghan ‘should be careful what she wishes for’ after marrying Prince Harry and becoming a member of the royal family.

The former royal aide – who worked as Diana’s butler from 1987 until her death a decade later – speculated that the Duchess of Sussex might struggle to give up her freedom.

“Meghan has just joined the biggest soap opera in the world and just landed the biggest role of her life as an actress,”  Paul Burrell told Yahoo in an interview on ‘The Royal Box‘.

“She did want to be famous, she’s got everything that she wanted, but I also think ‘be careful what you wish for’ because sometimes it’s not all that it seems.

“Diana found that out, at an early age. To be a royal princess sometimes, losing your anonymity, losing that freedom, that’s a big ask for any woman in today’s society.”

“There’s no protocol for people like Thomas Markle, or in-laws,” Paul Burrell said. “People that marry into the royal family are lost at sea.”

“They are keeping Meghan safe but what about all the people in her world on the fringes?”
