In case you haven’t really been paying attention these last few months, there’s quite a few problems going on in the British monarchy right now. Prince Harry (is he still a prince? I’m not sure how that works) and his wife Meghan Markle left the United Kingdom, renounced their royal titles (except for some of them, I guess) and gave a huge interview on Oprah about what the British Royal Family is really like.
The easiest thing to do at that point was paint a parallel between Meghan Markle and Harry’s mother, Princess Diana. It had been done lots of times before, but it wasn’t until the interview that people started treating Meghan like the new Diana.
