Even Diana’s former butler Paul Burrell has admitted her position is not an easy one, claiming in a Channel 5 documentary previously that Buckingham Palace is like a ‘minefield’ for anyone new and compared the treatment Meghan has received to that experienced by Princess Diana.

He continued: ‘Buckingham Palace is a minefield for any person going in there for a first time. People set traps, they weren’t very kind to this young girl coming into this world.’ ‘Who would want to be part of that family?’, he added.
