Paul Burrell Claims Meghan Markle Is 'Everything The Royal Family Are Frightened Of'

Paul Burrell has claimed that new royal Meghan Markle is everything that the royal family is frightened of.

Princess Diana's former butler appeared on Good Morning Britain on Tuesday, where he made some pretty big claims about the new Duchess of Sussex.

On Saturday the whole world tuned in to watch Meghan and Prince Harry tie the knot at St George's Chapel in the grounds of Windsor Castle, however Paul has warned that the royal family were not ready for the wedding.

We already know that Meghan is different from previous royal brides as she is American, mixed race and a divorcee.

This is of course unusual for the royal family given that the Queen became the heir to the throne after Edward VIII decided to abdicate because he fell in love with American divorcee Wallis Simpson and was not allowed to marry her.

Paul told GMB how Princess Diana would have 'loved' Meghan, however he warned: "She is all of the things that the royal family is frightened off.

"She's mixed race, she's American, she's a divorcee and that is everything that we have to embrace to move forward."

He added: "There will be ripples in the royal pond, yes there will, and things will happen but I think she's steady, she's solid, she's a good person to enter the royal family.

"She's served her apprenticeship in Hollywood on that stage, now she's entered the world stage and joined the cast of the biggest soap opera on the world."
