Meghan Markle intends to follow in the footsteps of Princess Diana by pursuing “good ambitions.”
According to a royal expert, Meghan Markle’s wish to follow in Princess Diana’s footsteps with philanthropic organizations is “understandable.”
Meghan Markle’s new organization Archewell has been compared to her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, in its efforts to “elevate particular causes.” The Princess of Wales utilized her position both before and after her marriage to Prince Charles to promote organizations around the world and to convey “positive impressions” of her humanitarian activities. Meghan Markle has launched a variety of projects and causes through the non-profit foundation she shares with Prince Harry after leaving the Royal Family in 2020.
When asked if Meghan was trying to emulate Diana, royal analyst Jonathan Sacerdoti told Us Weekly, “I don’t think it’s inherently a negative thing if that’s what she’s doing, since there were qualities about Diana that many people inside the Royal Family considered as extremely great.”
“Then, after her tumultuous divorce from the Royal Family, she made a concerted effort to exploit her position and celebrity to promote not just herself, but also her causes and charities around the world.
“There are those iconic photos of her with HIV patients or trekking through a landmine-affected area for a landmine charity.
“These are incredibly wonderful things she was trying to achieve, beautiful pictures, so I think it’s understandable if Meghan wants to replicate that.
“I think she’s demonstrating, at least in her thinking, that she’s pursuing important goals across the world and attempting to raise certain causes to a level where we’re all aware of them, much as Diana did,” he continued.
“She’s getting the same backlash from some parts as Diana did for doing it, because some argue that both of them may have been more concerned with their own image than the issues they claimed to represent.”
Princess Diana was noted for altering the image of a royal public figure during her lifetime, with her outgoing demeanor and physical affection for the patients and victims she visited.
In 1989, she made headlines when she hugged a seven-year-old AIDS patient at New York’s Harlem Hospital Center.
She made a point of physically contacting AIDS/HIV victims after that, stating, “HIV.” Brinkwire Summary News.
