A longtime confidant of Princess Diana doesn’t think she’s happy with her son, Prince Harry, or his wife, Meghan Markle.
On Friday, Buckingham Palace confirmed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will not return to their duties as members of the royal family. The announcement came just over a year after Harry, 36, and Markle, 39, announced that they would “step back” as royals during a one-year review period.
Fashion designer Roberto Devorik, who was a close friend of Diana before her death in 1997 at age 36, believes the late princess would be “furious” with Harry for his family consequences and likely disagree with Markle for contributing. to division. . Talking to Hello! Magazine, Devorik explains that Diana’s greatest wish was to see her children shape a “modern monarchy,” something Harry can no longer do.
“I think Meghan is the boss … Harry is a child who suffered a lot and believes that Meghan has Diana’s legacy. But he is very confused,” Devorik told the outlet (via The Daily Mail).

As for the queen’s decision to strip the couple of their patronages, Devorik believes the move was the only “logical” step left for the monarch now that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are essentially making their own money in California.
“You cannot go into exile and collect money from Netflix or Disney and also want to continue charging the State for your actions for the Crown,” he explains.
The fashion designer adds: “You cannot live in a mansion in Montecito, California, and sign millionaire commercial contracts, and also want to receive money from the public coffers or continue to represent the Crown.”
