Queen Elizabeth is reportedly more supportive of Meghan Markle than Princess Diana. While most royal followers say that Meghan shares a lot of similarities with her late mother-in-law, many believe that she’s luckier than Princess Diana because she has quite the Queen’s support.

It has been more than two decades since Princess Diana died in a tragic car crash in 1997, but her legacy still lives on. Fans of the late Princess of Wales claim that her daughter-in-law, Meghan, proves to be a remnant of her legacy in many ways. Like Princess Diana, Meghan is also being hounded by false tabloid reports and is bound to endure regular media attacks.

Luckily for Meghan, Queen Elizabeth got her back. Since Meghan married into the royal family, the Queen has taken her under her wing — something that she never got to do during Princess Diana’s time.

One of the reasons Queen Elizabeth treats Meghan better than she did Princess Diana is that she and Princess Diana’s personalities naturally clashed. When Princess Diana was still living in the Palace, Queen Elizabeth was reportedly constantly baffled by the behavior of the late Princess of Wales.

Royal history has it that Queen Elizabeth was not really mad at Princess Diana — it’s just that her style was not her style. The Queen also reportedly didn’t like it when Princess Diana gave a media interview about her collapsing marriage with Prince Charles, so she was forced to urge her son to divorce her.

Several reports have pointed out that Meghan is actually Queen Elizabeth’s favorite in-law. The Queen has reportedly changed her tune for the Duchess of Sussex, that’s why she hasn’t been receiving the same treatment as Princess Diana despite her sometimes not playing by Queen Elizabeth’s rules.

Unlike Princess Diana, who married Prince Charles while she was still in college, Meghan was an accomplished woman when she married Prince Harry. Queen Elizabeth reportedly loves that Meghan is the exact opposite of Princess Diana when it comes to this as she was successful in her own right, even without Prince Harry.

Queen Elizabeth also reportedly likes Meghan better than Kate Middleton because Meghan is someone she can casually converse with. Unlike Kate, who shares a more formal relationship with the Queen, Meghan shares a more casual relationship with Queen Elizabeth — so casual that she can actually comfortably tell jokes around her.
