The Irish designer suggested his friend would have been supportive of the couple's decision .

Paul first met Diana when she visited his Windsor shop in 1982 and continued to dress her until she died in 1997 aged 36.

He said: "She was lovely to dress and she was a very honest, sincere person.

"She was family orientated and she had a sense of humour – she liked to smile."

He created the pink suit she wore for a tour of Canada in 1991, as well as a skirt for a trip to India in 1993.
