Princess Diana would be “incredibly proud” of her son Prince Harry for “telling [his] truth” in tell-all Oprah Winfrey interview, according to royal expert Omid Scobie.

The 36-year-old royal and his wife, Duchess Meghan, took part in a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey this week where they discussed their decision to step back as senior members of the royal family amid intense public scrutiny over their relationship.

And royal expert Omid Scobie has now said he believes Harry’s late mother Princess Diana – who conducted an interview of her own in 1995, two years before she died in a car crash – would be pleased to see her son “telling [his] truth”.

Speaking to E! News, Omid said: “There are many who say Diana came to regret the Panorama interview. If there’s one thing Diana stood for, it was telling your truth and having a voice and making sure others have a voice.

“So I think to see her son find his voice and be unafraid to use it when really everything is at stake, I imagine she would be incredibly proud.”
