The Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped back from their roles as senior members of the Royal Family last year and relocated to the US. According to Diana’s former voice coach and confidante, Meghan was smarter than her mother-in-law in how she approached royal life after marrying Prince Harry.
Stewart Pearce told Us Weekly’s Royally Us podcast that he was surprised at how little advice Diana received before marrying Prince Charles in 1981.
He said: “What was extraordinary right from the very beginning, right from 1981 is that she was really not given a tremendous amount of advice.
“In the Royal Family it was sort of assumed that you would grow into it or you would know it.”
Mr Pearce recently released a book titled Diana: The Voice of Change giving insight into the beloved princess.

Mr Pearce added: “[Diana] was one of the first great voices of change and now Meghan is becoming another great voice of change.”
Prince Harry is excepted to return to the UK this summer for the unveiling of a statue in honour of his late mother.
The statue of Princess Diana is scheduled to be revealed on July 1 at Kensington Palace on what would have been her 60th birthday.
Prince William is also expected to join is brother in honouring their mother.
Princess Diana was tragically killed in a car crash in Paris in 1997 and this August will mark 24 years since her death.
