Princess Anne has criticized Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for stepping down as senior members of the British royal family and making attempts to change its structure. 

Having served as a royal for over 50 years, Princess Royal said that the younger generation needs to stop looking for ways to “reinvent the wheel.”

Talking to Vanity Fair in an earlier interview, Anne commented on Megxit and said: “I don’t think the younger generation probably understands what I was doing in the past and it’s often true, isn’t it?”

“You don’t necessarily look at the previous generation and say, ‘Oh you did that?’ or ‘You went there?’ Nowadays, they’re much more looking for, ‘Oh let’s do it in a new way’,” she said.

“And I’m already at the stage, ‘Please do not reinvent that particular wheel. We’ve been there, done that. Some of these things don’t work. You may need to go back to basics.’”

She has also been quite critical of Princess Diana as claimed by royal photographer Steve Wood in the 2003 Channel 4 documentary The Real Princess Anne.

In the documentary it was told that Anne thought Diana “lessened the stature of the Royal Family” and she along with Sarah Ferguson were “too tabloid for her.”
