Princess Diana may have not been around for over two decades, but rumors still hound the late royal. And in recent months, the rumors seem to involve her daughters-in-law, Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton.

According to New Idea, Princess Diana left a voice recording for Prince William decades ago. In the clip, the Princess of Wales encouraged Prince William to choose his future wife wisely.

The doting mom of two also told the Duke of Cambridge that whoever he would end up with is someone who’s beautiful, smart, and independent.

In the so-called recording, Princess Diana also tells Prince William that he wouldn’t have a hard time finding someone special. And if the woman that he’s with doesn’t possess the qualities mentioned above, it means that she can’t be Prince William’s future wife.

The tabloid claimed that Markle found out about the alleged recording and demanded that she hear it too.

“She feels ripped off that Diana didn’t do the same for Harry – she’d have loved a message from beyond the grave and says that, as Diana’s other daughter-in-law, she deserves to hear the message as well,” the source said.

The source added that Markle doesn’t seem to understand that the whole point why Princess Diana recorded a voice message for Prince William.

Princess Diana was, allegedly, very particular with Prince William’s future wife because whoever she is will become the future queen consort. Unfortunately, the same role will never be afforded to Prince Harry’s wife.

“Kate and William hold those tapes close and won’t let anyone have them,” the source said.

However, one should take the claims made by the tabloid with a grain of salt. It is highly likely that they are just pitting Markle and Middleton against each other.

This is an old narrative from various tabloids. Since Markle joined the royal family, she and Middleton were always compared for their every move.

In the book Finding Freedom, authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand denied that there’s a rift between the sisters-in-law. They said that Markle and Middleton just didn’t have the opportunity to be close to each other. And they are also very different.

However, this doesn’t mean that they dislike each other or that they are at odds with each other.
