Diana was dubbed the "people's princess" and social media users started to use the term to reference the Suits star.
"Aides revealed that Meghan has not traveled with a hairstylist or makeup artist, opting instead to do it herself," an outlet shared. "[Meghan] did her own hair and makeup soon after arriving at her five-star hotel in Düsseldorf and got ready for the event in just over an hour."
The Royal Observer previously reported that David Mellor was outraged that Meghan wanted to have a reputation similar to Diana's.
"It’s a sad half-life that she has," Mellor said during a GB News appearance. "She always thought that she could drift into the royal family and become the new Princess Diana and all she would have to do is doll herself up and smile to the camera."
The Duke of Sussex also compared the two women over the years. According to Tom Bower, Harry was hurt when Diana's siblings couldn't find the correlation between Lady Spencer and Meghan.
"Not only did Earl Charles Spencer [Diana’s only brother], Lady Sarah McCorquodale, and Baroness Jane Fellowes [Diana’s two sisters], and her close friend Julia Samuel fail to see the similarities between Meghan and Harry’s late mother — as the prince reportedly hoped — but they thought that she would struggle to fit in with the royal family," Bower wrote in Revenge: Meghan, Harry, and the War Between the Windsors.
In the controversial docuseries Harry & Meghan, the veteran attempted to show how Meghan's experience in the U.K. paralleled Diana's life.
"My mom made most of her decisions, if not all of them, from her heart and I am my mother's son," he added.
