Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are celebrating six years of marriage today.

Six years ago today, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex exchanged vows in a grand Royal Wedding hosted at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle.


On May 19, 2018, the couple tied the knot, declaring their commitment in the presence of friends, family, and viewers worldwide as the televised event captivated audiences. However, according to one royal expert, if Princess Diana had still been alive, the wedding might not have occurred.

Back in March, Dickie Arbiter spoke to Times Radio about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. The commentator on the BritishRoyal Family, who was the press spokesman for Queen Elizabeth II from 1988 until 2000, said that he believes if Diana had been alive, Harry and Meghan would not have got married.

Speaking two months ago, Mr Arbiter said: "If Diana had been alive, I'm going to stick my neck out here, and I doubt Harry would have married Meghan." He went on to add: "Diana was very careful about her boys, they were her boys. She protected them, and she would have protected them against anybody she felt wasn't the right person."

He then spoke of how Harry had a "number of girlfriends" but they didn't want to "be in the goldfish bowl", but he wanted something like his brother William had - a marriage and kids. Mr Arbiter added: "My own personal opinion is that he rushed into the marriage."

He went on to say that he believes Diana, who sadly died in 1997, would have put a "question mark over it", noting that he feels Harry wouldn't be where he is now if Diana was still alive.
