Diana's ex-butler deals out against Meghan Markle and is likely to speak from the soul of many a royal fan. However, according to Paul Burrell, a separation would come prematurely.
Montecito – Since his time as butler of Princess Diana (36, † 1997), Paul Burrell (64) has been considered a connoisseur of the British royal family. Burrell saw Prince William (40) and Prince Harry (38) grow up and still feels connected to the children of Lady Di and the current King Charles III (74), even though his revealing book "A Royal Duty" led to a break with the brothers in 2003. In an interview with GB News, Diana's ex-butler now talks about the marriage of Harry and Meghan Markle (41).
Paul Burrell speaks of brainwashing: 'Has Harry finally woken up?'
"Am I the only one in the UK who thinks: Has Harry finally woken up? Has he finally realized the truth of what his wife is doing, that he has been brainwashed and blinded by her beauty?" wonders Paul Burrell in conversation with GB News. "We all know that, but he doesn't seem to see it." For Lady Di's former confidant, only the desire for an intact family keeps Prince Harry from separating.
"I know Harry personally and I think he's always wanted to be a father, he's always wanted children," said Paul Burrell. "I think the moment to separate from his family would come a little prematurely." The separation of his parents in 1992 and the accidental death of his mother Diana five years later caused Prince Harry a severe trauma, which he also deals with in his biography "Spare". The Duke of Sussex wants to save his children Archie (4) and Lilibet (1) from a similar fate. "If he were to abandon this relationship now, he would lose his children because Meghan would keep them in America and he wouldn't see them," Burrell points out.
Who is Paul Burrell?
From 1976 to 1987, Paul Burrell was in the service of Queen Elizabeth II (96, † 2022), after which he worked as a butler for Charles and Diana. Burrell continued to serve as a butler to the Princess of Wales even after the royal couple's separation. After Diana's death in 1997, he worked for the Diana Memorial Fund. The charges of theft, which Princess Diana's relatives later filed, made headlines, but the trial was dropped in 2002. Burrell is the author of the books "In the Service of My Queen" and "Time with Her", in which he discusses his close relationship with Diana. In the British reality show "I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here!", the equivalent of "I'm a Star – Get Me Out of Here!", Burrell took second place in 2004.
Too much pressure for Meghan and Harry? "You will inevitably see cracks in this marriage"
Paul Burrell predicts that sooner or later the pressure from the public will become too much for Meghan and Harry. "You will inevitably see cracks in this marriage." Princess Diana's ex-butler still hopes he might be wrong. "Personally, I don't want to see Harry unhappy again, I've seen too many tears, I want to see him very happy, I want to see him and his family grow, but there's a nagging doubt in the back of my mind."

Should Prince Harry and Meghan Markle actually separate one day, Burrelll is betting on a return of the royal dropout to the UK. "I have no doubt that if that happens, he will return to the UK – and we all know it will," said Paul Burrell. "And I think his father, the King, and his brother, the Prince of Wales, will both welcome him with open arms." The fact that Prince William and King Charles have not cut Harry out of their lives is now shown by current footage. Sources used: gbnews.com
