Stewart Pearce further said that both women are “female empowerment pioneers” who set out to “speak the truth”
Princess Diana's close confidant and ex-voice coach, Steward Pearce pointed out how Meghan Markle’s bombshell with Oprah Winfrey mirrors Diana's interview with BBC’s Martin Bashir and said that the two women share the same “spirit” and “courage”, reported the Daily Star.
Pearce further said that both women are “female empowerment pioneers” who set out to “speak the truth”. “There is a vibrational difference, but the point is that the courage, the sensitivity that it took to come forth with those revelations was outstanding. I felt that what Meghan was actually living through was the spirit of revelation, the spirit of transparency that Diana was trying to achieve," he told The Sun. Princess Diana's comments to Bashir during the 1995 interview rattled the royals similar to the Duchess of Sussex's statements to Oprah. Her comments on racism and a lack of compassion within the Windsors had a similar impact, reported the Daily Star.
However, Markle's comments received more backlash than Diana's did. Some accused her of outright lying instead of sympathizing with her. Piers Morgan had blasted the “deluded duchess” right after the interview, calling her claims “untrue, exaggerated or unprovable”, something Princess Diana never had to hear. However, according to Stewart, the battles are different but the impact each had on both the women is the same. He further said that like Meghan, “Diana was decades ahead of her time, she changed the world with hope, empowerment, kindness, and authenticity," reported the Daily Star.
He claimed that the friction between Prince Harry, Prince Charles, and Prince William is not as severe as it may seem. “Being privy to these people’s lives, the stories we’ve heard about the boys not getting on or disparagement between Harry and his father is the stuff of all our lives. In Harry’s tone of expression, we do not hear spleen, anger, revenge, reprisal, and hear no form of disrespect. What we hear is a young man emotionally excavating and having an emotional autopsy on what he believes the values of the world are. I happen to concur with his values. We are getting emotionally intelligent, speaking about the way we feel," he said, reported The Daily Star.
