Prince Harry brings up his mother, Princess Diana, often, and Andrew Morton — who wrote Diana: In Her Own Words — claims that "all roads lead back to" the late princess, who died in 1997.

"As the Sussexes embarked on their own journey together through royal life, not a day went by without a reference, a memory or a decision that related in some way to Harry’s late mother. Diana was the third wheel in their marriage," he wrote for the Mail on Sunday.

Morton also claimed that Meghan's friends said the former actress "wants to be Princess Diana 2.0."

During the couple's recent trip to NYC, the TV star wore a black purse that Diana once carried, and she has been known to wear her watch.

Although it was speculated that the 40-year-old would change the monarchy, she “came to realize, as Diana had done, that everything was not as it seemed in this looking-glass world," Morton claimed.

The two eventually moved to California, where they now reside with their two kids, Archie and Lilibet Diana, who is named after Harry's mother.

Recently, Harry revealed that after his mom passed away, he turned to drugs and drinking to cope. "I would probably drink a week's worth in one day on a Friday or a Saturday night," he told Oprah Winfrey in the The Me You Can't See. "And I would find myself drinking not because I was enjoying it but because I was trying to mask something."

"I was willing to drink, I was willing to take drugs," he said. "I was willing to try and do the things that made me feel less like I was feeling."

After going to therapy, the dad-of-two is in a much better place.

"One of the biggest lessons that I've ever learned in life is you've sometimes got to go back and to deal with really uncomfortable situations and be able to process it in order to be able to heal," he explained.

“I’ve learned more about myself in the last four years than I have in the 32 years before that. I have my wife to thank for that,” the dad-of-one added. “I’m still the person that I was, but I’m just a better version of that. I kind of feel that this was always meant to be.”
