An amazing comparison
Jason Knauf, Prince Harry’s press secretary, was tasked with issuing this statement on behalf of the prince. “Harry dictated to Knauf the sentiments to be expressed in a statement. Meghan asked that the statement show the parallels between her potential fate and Diana’s “wrote the reporter in his book, adding that Jason Knauf still tried to warn the couple about such a comparison: “Knauf suggests that the dramatization of Meghan’s misery will repeat itself, but Harry was strong. If Meghan’s dream of being like Diana doesn’t come true, Harry insists, she will likely be lost. Knauf nodded.”

In this work, the author especially relates to attraction of the actress for Diana, which portrays a young American crying over images of her funeral and immersing herself in old video tapes of her marriage to Prince Charles.
