Everybody knows how much Princess Diana loved her sons so much she would surely support Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's decision to move to California.
Royal expert Stewart Pearce revealed the late Princess of Wales would be very happy with her youngest son's move. Why?
Diana herself had her "eye on a property" in Malibu, California. So, the Duke of Sussex's decision to relocate to Montecito did not surprise the "Diana, The Voice of Change" author at all.
"She was talking about buying a property in Malibu [saying] that would be 'really great' for the boys to have freedom so that they could surf," Pearce told Us Weekly. "So, she'd be in complete favor."
Pearce, who also happened to be Diana's voice coach, saw Harry and Markle's move to step back as senior royals and live in the U.S. as their way to honor their mom's mission. Diana wanted to shake things up in the monarchy and make a difference, not just in the U.K. but globally.
He continued the Sussexes are taking on her legacy - bringing liberation to the "disenfranchised, the disassociated, the LGBTQ+ community, [the] Black Lives Matter [and] Me Too [movements]."
These things are believed to be the liberation Diana wanted by using her position as an egalitarian or humanitarian. She dreamt of using her status positively to show everyone that there was no reason for them not to show their support if she could do it.
Pearce added that Harry's recent comments about the royal family would have made his mother proud no matter how contentious it was.
Meanwhile, Pearce was not the only one who talked about Diana's plans to move across the pond. The princess' former butler, Paul Burrell, also told Fox News in 2019 that Diana already started searching for a new home in the U.S.
He continued they already set their eyes on a house on the west coast in Malibu that used to be owned by Blake Edwards and his wife, Julie Andrews. Burrell, who also served as Queen Elizabeth II's footman, added they had already set their plans and dedicated the rooms to Prince William, Harry, and her, while he, his wife, and kids would live above them.
Just like Harry, Diana's future was set in the U.S. Burrell also believed Markle wanted to bring up her kids as half America, so they really needed a place to live here.
