Mr Burrell, who was a servant for the royal family for several years, added that the Princess of Wales would have ‘approved’ of Harry’s fiancee.
The former butler to Diana has been accused of cashing in on his time spent serving the royal family after he released a book in 2003 and appeared on the Australian version of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!
And he is planning to get back in the spotlight ahead of this weekend’s royal wedding having lined up a series of new media appearances.
Paul Burrell (pictured), who was a servant for the royal family for several years, said the Princess of Wales would have ‘approved’ of Harry’s fiancee
In an interview on ITV’s Lorraine on Thursday, he said that Prince Harry and William would both be thinking of their mother during the bid day in Windsor on Saturday.
He said: ‘Diana will be there in spirit. How can you not have Diana there? The boys will be thinking about her.
‘The Queen will give Meghan a diamond tiara the night before and she will carry white roses, I’m sure.
‘I can see there being touches of Diana throughout the day, she won’t be far away and I bet the boys take a quiet moment.
‘It is a good chance for two boys to say ‘thank you mummy, for bringing us into the world’ because that is why they’re here.’
He added: ‘I think Diana would have approved of Meghan. Together with Meghan by his side, they will go out and fulfil her dreams.
‘If she was still there she would be at the centre of all of this, and Mrs Middleton would not have got a look in with the grandchildren.
‘We watched William and Harry walk behind the coffin, that 11 year old boy’s heart broken and it’s never been the same since, until he found Meghan; she mended it.’
Mr Burrell also spoke of the first time he ‘met Harry’, when Diana secretly revealed that she was pregnant with her second child
