Princess Diana's former private secretary has hinted it would be tricky for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to achieve what they want without the royal-style model, which his late mother discovered when she tried to break free.
Prince Harry, 35, has embarked on his final week of official engagements, and is about to move into a post-royal career similar to his the late Princess Diana following her separation from Prince Charles in 1992.
But former private secretary Patrick Jephson has told of the Princess of Wales' struggles to leave behind the duty of royal life.
