Diana would have backed Harrys Oprah chat against unjust royals says ex-pal

Princess Dianawould have supportedPrince HarryandMeghan Markle’sOprahinterview, and herself the Palace was “unjust”, her former voice coach has claimed.

Stewart Pearce, 68, got close to Diana in the years before her death, and helped her master public speaking, her poise, and expression from 1995 until the tragedy in Paris on August 31, 1997.

Like her son, Diana also spilled royal secrets in a now notorious BBC Panorama interview with Martin Bashir.

Describing her motives, Mr Pearce told the Daily Star: “What spurred her was that she felt the injustice, she felt that her voice was not being heard.

“She felt that many of the statements were unjust and that people needed to know her perspective, that the British people didn’t know her perspective.

“Because she’d always been shown such love and such support by the people of this nation.”

Back in March, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex appeared to follow in Diana’s footsteps, detailing their departure from the Royal Family in a groundbreaking Oprah Winfrey interview.

Harry claimed that dad Prince Charles had cut him off financially, and that a senior royal had expressed concerns about the colour of Archie’s skin.

It sent shockwaves through the monarchy, with the Palace issuing a terse statement a few days later.

Discussing The Firm’s response, Mr Pearce went on: “The Palace behaviour – not the Royal Family – it’s the men in grey suits.

“There’s a machine around the nucleus of the Royal Family that organises the whole thing, that are the interface betweenQueenand Government.

“The same thing happened to Diana, she was refused by the men in grey suits so she would have been wholeheartedly in support of what Harry and Meghan’s actions were.”

The Queen eventually asked Diana and Charles to divorce after the interview.

Mr Pearce earlier claimed that the Prince of Wales could rewrite the constitution to letPrince Williamtake power.

Charles is heir to the throne and has long wanted to implement a slimmed-down monarchy, it is believed.

However, some have questioned the role he will take on once the Queen passes away.

Mr Pearce said: "She [the Queen] is preparing to leave, and when she leaves the whole psycho-physical nature of monarchy will change.

"And who knows, constitutional law may be rewritten.

"He [Charles] may not take the throne, he may hand it to his young son."
