Former Princess Diana's butler Paul Burrell shared a personal letter she wrote on Instagram as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle prepare for their new life in North America.
In the excerpt, written in Princess Diana's own hands, the mother of Prince William and Prince Harry wrote: "I love my children to death and I hope that the seeds I planted will grow and bring the necessary strength, knowledge and stability". The post also featured a black and white portrait of Lady Diana and her two children.The image and the letter arrived at a crucial moment for the monarchy, and Paul was ready to express his opinion on the current situation.
"When Harry, Meghan [Markle] and Archie embark on a new life, I remember some heartbreaking words that Princess Diana wrote to me many years ago," Paul started captioning the post. "It is a mother's unconditional love words that are as appropriate today as they were when she wrote them over 24 years ago," the post concluded.
As devotees of the royal family know, Prince William and Prince Harry lost their mother in August 1997, when the boys were 17 and 12, respectively. All these years later, Princess Diana's legacy, as well as the circumstances that led to her premature death at age 36, are still rooted in the mind of the modern monarchy.
On January 8, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan announced, through their official Instagram account Sussex Royal, that they would move to North America and take a step back from royal duties. The decision was made after years of public scrutiny and attacks on Duchess Meghan through several British tabloids.
