Paul Burrell finds it “heartbreaking” that Princess Diana never meets her grandchildren.
The 62-year-old former royal butler, who worked for the Princess of Wales for 10 years, insists that if Diana were still alive, her grandchildren “would be her world.”
Diana’s eldest son, Prince William, 39, and his wife, Duchess Catherine, have three children: Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three, and her other son, Prince Harry and his wife Meghan. Duchess of Sussex, two. children, Archie, two years old, and a newborn daughter Lilibet.
Speaking for the new issue of Closer magazine, Paul said: “It is heartbreaking to think that Diana is missing out on the opportunity to meet her grandchildren. They would be her world. She would adore every one of them, especially Charlotte as she seems to be. cocky and strong-willed.
“The grandchildren are all different, and with (Prince Harry’s children) Archie and Lilibet growing up in America, they will grow up differently. Of course, George is the heir to the throne, but Diana would treat everyone the same. “
And Paul suggests that even though Diana’s youngest son, Harry, 36, left the British royal family to live in the United States with his family, this is not the movement of the Princess of the People, who tragically died in a 1997 Paris car crash. 36 years old – I would do it myself.
He said: “Diana loved America and was looking for a place in Malibu before she died. She loved it for the freedom he could give her, of course she would still be well known, but she would have more privacy. She would like the boys to spend more time there in fine weather. She shared the same desire as Harry, to escape and enjoy a freedom that they do not have in the UK.
“But California would never be her permanent home – it would be a part-time home. She loved Britain and truly understood the monarchy and her place in it, even though she was no longer married to (Prince) Charles. She was not interested in the glitz and glam of Los Angeles, she only wanted to go to the red carpet if her presence at the event was beneficial and raised awareness, not just for it or fame. And the family always comes. firstly, therefore, she would never have moved so far across the Atlantic or away from her sons or grandchildren. Family would be her top priority, so that is where she and Harry are at odds.
