The Duchess of Sussex recently visited Nigeria and was compared to the late Princess of Wales after she sported pieces of jewellery reminiscent of the heir to the throne’s mother, including a plain gold necklace and a diamond cross.

Even though some experts suggested the pieces of jewellery did not belong to Diana, an insider now has come out and claimed the comparison between the two women has left the Prince of Wales “bothered”.

According to the source, while the future King does not want to “deprive Harry of the right to celebrate their mother’s legacy” however, he is not happy that the duchess “paraded around as the modern-day version” of his late mother.

They told Closer magazine: “William doesn’t want to deprive Harry of the right to celebrate their mother’s legacy. What bothers him is how Meghan’s paraded around as the modern-day version of Diana, he finds that beyond tasteless and offensive, not only to him but also to Kate.”
