Meghan and Harry’s tell-all Diana-style interview ‘only a matter of time’

It is "only a matter of time" before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle do a tell-all TV exposé like Princess Diana 's 1995 Panorama interview, her former butler has claimed.

Paul Burrell, 62, acted as butler to Diana from 1987 until her death a decade later.

He believes her younger son will soon follow in her footsteps and act out against the Royal Family in an explosive televised interview.

The famous Panorama episode, watched by 21 million people when it aired, had Diana speaking candidly about her failing marriage to Prince Charles, including both of their infidelities. She also questioned her husband's suitability to be King.

Harry's wife Meghan has been compared to Diana for her independence and tendency to rock the boat, but Mr Burrell believes they are "different women of different times".

"Meghan is of now, Diana was of then, and they were very different times," he told ITV's Lorraine on Friday morning.

"Meghan is a modern woman with modern ideas and they'll do things very differently.

"They're ramping up one more stage, because they're going into Netflix and I can see Harry and Megan on Netflix at home, that would be a show.

"It's only a matter of time before they give a major interview to someone in the US and do a similar interview for the world."

The relationship between Harry and his brother William has reportedly been frosty for some time, and Mr Burrell hopes an unveiling of Diana's portrait on what would have been her 60th birthday next year will help to heal things.

"The boys will be brought together again by their mother, and I'm hoping from then on we can see an end to this spat," he said.

"But it happens in all families up and down the country, people are saying now 'My son married a strong independent woman who led him on a different path'. That's exactly what happened to Harry.

"He's married this woman who has ideas of her own, he is so besotted by her and in love with her that she can't do anything wrong, now he's being led along her path."

Mr Burrell said he "can't see him happy in Los Angeles" and believes Harry will eventually return to his friends and family in England.

  • As butler, he helped arrange the interview with journalist Martin Bashir into Kensington Palace for the interview with Diana in 1995. The broadcast sent shockwaves around the world and the couple divorced the following year.

    "That was a huge moment in television history, it was a time royals didn't speak out and she wore her heart on her sleeve," Mr Burrell said.

    "The palace were furious and from that moment she was ostracised by the royal establishment, she was out there on her own."

    Diana herself allegedly wondered if she'd gone too far, particularly in admitting her love for riding instructor James Hewitt.

    "She wished she hadn't said so much she said to me once," Mr Burrell said.

    "She feared what the boys would think and the reaction from them. They were children and to hear her say, yes she was in love with James Hewitt and she adored him, that would have repercussions.

    "She loved her boys, they were the centre of her life, nothing came before her children."
