Princess Diana would have ‘kept William and Harry together’ claims royal expert
A royal expert has speculated the peacemaking effect Princess Diana would have on "warring" sons Harry and William were she still alive.
Andrew Morton, who published a 1992 biography on Princess Diana, described how she would now be "glam ma" to five grandchildren.
Writing in The Mirror, Mr Morton described how Diana would have perhaps approached Charles to discuss how to reconcile Harry and William.
He said: "Diana would have been so concerned about the rift between Harry and William.
"She always saw Harry as the reliable wingman for William, for when he took on the lonely position of Sovereign. She understood her youngest son, a tendency to wear his heart on his sleeve and his desire to forge his own path.
"It would be the ultimate irony that the woman who unmasked the inner workings of her marriage and the monarchy would act as peacemaker to save the institution she walked away from.
"One thing is certain though. The boys would have put aside their differences to organise a party to remember for their precious mother."
Harry and William will next meet publicly at Kensington Palace to unveil a statue of their mother to mark her 60th birthday.
Mr Morton additionally hypothesised what Diana, who would have been 60 on July 1, would have thought of the newest family members.
He noted that her relationship with daughters-in-law Kate and Meghan would have been a "fascinating relationship".
Morton said: "She would warm to Catherine, her initial shyness on the public stage reminding her so much of her own early trepidation in front of a screaming crowd.

"As for Meghan, she would find the energetic American mesmerising and intimidating.
"Diana was desperate to be known for speeches, rather than fashions, and took lessons to learn how to deliver talks.
"She would have been taken aback on first meeting Meghan, a force of nature able to speak with passion and precision – and all without notes.
“But as she got to know her and see the vulnerable side of a woman who suffered mental trauma during her first pregnancy – as did Diana – they would have bonded."
He also speculated where Diana would be now in her life, having spent a quarter of a century "free from the Palace".
Morton wrote: "By now she would have remarried – a successful, confident man, a politician, doctor or businessman.
"I believe she would have had more children. She always wanted a baby daughter and teased Charles, when Fergie came over with Beatrice and Eugenie, over what might have been.
"When she died she had not tasted the true joy of being a grandparent."
