If you see a lot of Princess Diana in Meghan Markle, you're definitely not alone. According to Diana's former butler, Paul Burrell, Meghan has a lot in common with the People's Princess—and he thinks that's probably what attracted Prince Harry to her to begin with.
可能你發現梅根·馬克爾和戴安娜王妃有很多相似之處,很多人都跟你一樣。據戴安娜從前的管家Paul Burrell說,梅根和這位人民王妃很像,他認為這可能就是最初她吸引哈里王子的地方。

"Harry went for and married Meghan because she's like Diana," Burrell reportedly said during an interview with Closer magazine. "Both women who would always stand up for what they believe in and wouldn't be pushovers."
Burrell在接受《CLOSER》雜志采訪時說:“哈里追求梅根并和她結婚是因為她像戴安娜。這兩位女士都一直堅守信仰,不輕易屈服。”

Even though Burrell thinks Meghan and Diana are similar women, he also said those similarities could have been the cause of some issues between them, if they'd gotten the chance to meet.
即使Burrell認為梅根和戴安娜相似,但他也說如果她們有機會見面的話,那這些相似之處可能會使她們產生矛盾。

"I think, possibly, they would have clashed," he said. "I imagine it would have been two strong, independent women with different views on things—it would have been a battle between Meghan's way and Diana's way."
他說:“我覺得她們有可能會產生沖突。我猜沖突源于這兩位堅強獨立的女性對待事物的不同觀點,也就是她們二人做事方式之爭。”

Burrell, who worked for Diana for 10 years before her tragic death in 1997, doesn't think Meghan is a carbon copy of Diana, of course. He said he thinks Meghan was probably more media savvy going into her royal marriage than Diana was. Diana, he said, had to learn to find her voice in the media.
在1997年戴安娜王妃慘死之前,Burrell曾為她工作10年。當然,他不認為梅根是戴安娜的復制品。他說他認為在梅根的皇室婚姻中,她可能比戴安娜更了解媒體。他說戴安娜還得學習如何應對媒體。

"I think the main difference between them is that Meghan has a game plan, whereas Diana was young and naïve," he added. "Diana did the book with Andrew Morton and courted the press over the years because she didn't have a voice. And her strong-mindedness meant she cared and she felt the people of the country had a right to know what had gone on behind closed doors."
他補充道:“我認為她們之間主要的區別是梅根有自己的規矩,但戴安娜太年輕、太天真。戴安娜和安德魯·莫頓一起出書,在那些年里一直向媒體示好,因為她沒有發言權。她堅強的意志意味著她在乎,她感覺英國人民有權知道一些不為人知的事。”
