Amanda Holden wades into Harry and Megan Markle royal row with Princess Diana comparison


Amanda Holden has waded into the Prince Harry and Meghan Markle royal row – Princess Diana would have also ditched the UK had she lived.

Amanda, 48, spoke out on Heart Breakfast this morning and believes Prince Harry’s mum Princess Diana “would have done the same”.

She then admitted she didn’t understand “what the fuss is about” while chatting to co-host Jamie Theakston.

The Britain’s Got Talent judge said: “Honestly, I don’t really understand what all the fuss is about because before Christmas the Royal Family announced they were going to slim down the Royal Family, just use the main players.”

She continued: “And I would imagine that Harry and Meghan don’t consider themselves main players so all they’re doing is stepping back, earning their own money and still going to represent us brilliantly abroad.”

While Jamie added that Harry and Meghan are seen as “spares” and he agreed “it’s hardly a surprise”.

The presenter continued: “I really like them. I hate the fact that they get all this kind of stuff in the press and I think – I suspect that she maybe wants another baby and I’m thinking she doesn’t want to go through another year of everyone kind of slagging her off.

“So yeah, I’m all for it. I want them to stay together, I want them to be happy.”

Amanda added: “I think had Princess Diana lived, she would have done the same kind of thing, she would have maybe found someone to love her properly, moved out of this country and represented us brilliantly across the globe.”
