Prince Harry has found allies in the late Princess Diana’s family amid his ongoing feud with the Royal Family, according to a former royal butler.

The Duke of Sussex has a frosty relationship with the The Firm after issuing a number of bombshell allegations against them. With their relationship at rock bottom, Harry didn’t meet with the royals when he returned to the UK earlier this month.

However, he was supported by Earl Charles Spencer and Lady Jane Fellowes, both siblings of the late Princess Diana. Earl Spencer previously vowed to stand by Harry’s side. Speaking at Diana’s funeral, he said her “blood family” will always protect Harry and his brother Prince William and “arm them spiritually and emotionally”.

There had been rumours he was due to meet with his father King Charles, but it was reported the monarch was too busy to see his son.

The Duke of Sussex made no plans to meet with William, from whom he is now estranged. Former royal butler Paul Burrell said Diana “would be devastated” if she knew how bad the royal feud had gotten.

Speaking to Bella Magazine, Paul said the feud wouldn’t have started if Diana had still been alive. He explained: “She would have seen this starting and she would have stopped it.”

“It broke her heart when that disintegrated. She would have predicted that once that disintegrated, William and Harry would have had problems of their own and that has come true.” However, without Diana here to intervene, Paul believes “it’s a lost cause”

Royal expert Tom Quinn has said Earl Spencer and Lady Jane Fellowes have shown “where their loyalties lie” after they turned up to support Harry at his Invictus Games event earlier this month. Speaking to The Mirror previously, he said: “The Spencer family have always felt uncomfortable with the Royal Family after the death of Harry and William’s mother. Earl Spencer, Diana’s brother, was openly critical of the way the Royal Family treated his sister and of course that criticism largely centred on Prince Charles (as he then was).”

Tom said there is “still a lot of bitterness around” and said the Spencers’ decision to support Harry was significant. The expert told us: “The fact that the Spencers were out in force for Harry on this visit speaks volumes about where their loyalties lie. Like Harry, the Spencers still see the Royal Family, to some extent, as the enemy.”
