There are some mysterious parallels between the two women: They are both American actresses who rocked the world when they married royalty. However, it was to Princess Diana that Grace revealed her prediction, with whom there are also extraordinary parallels, not least because both royal brides died in a tragic car accident. The couple met on Diana’s first outing as Prince Charles’s fiancée, Diana revealed in her tapes, which were first released in 2017.
It was a music recital at Goldsmiths’ Hall on March 3, 1981, followed by a reception at Buckingham Palace.
Princess Grace had been married to Rainier III of Monaco for 25 years, but for Diana it had only been a week since her engagement was announced.
The 19-year-old felt uncomfortable and self-conscious in a dress she considered “two sizes smaller” and inappropriate for the occasion.
In a completely revised 25th anniversary edition of Andrew Morton’s ‘Diana: Her True Story: In Her Own Words’, Diana recalled how Grace, 52, had sensed her unease and led her to the bathroom to chat with the girls.

Diana opened up to Grace about her sense of isolation and her fears for the future.
It was there that Grace patted him on the cheeks and warned him, “Don’t worry, darling, it will only get worse.”
Just 18 months later, Princess Grace died in a car accident.
Her prediction that life would get worse turned out to be true for Diana, who spent much of her life married to Charles utterly miserable.

She felt abandoned by her infidelity and alone because she had no one to turn to within the palace walls.
However, it also rings true for the Duchess of Sussex.
When Meghan first married Prince Harry in May 2018, everything seemed fine.
They had enjoyed a beautiful romantic and fairytale wedding, the media coverage was overwhelmingly positive, and Meghan was accepted by the Royal Family.

At first, everything seemed fine for Meghan and Harry.
It was only with time that things began to fall apart.
Several of Meghan’s staff members left, sparking rumors that it was difficult to deal with.
Harry and Meghan then parted ways with Kensington Palace, setting up their own home at Frogmore Cottage amid claims of a royal rift with William and Kate.
Harry and Meghan also began to be criticized for the perceived hypocrisy of preaching about climate change and then attacking on private planes.
Harry released a statement criticizing the press for his coverage of his wife, calling her “bullying”.
Eventually, the press and public scrutiny came too much, and the couple decided to step down as royalty, which they did in late March.
Speaking to Tom Bradby in the ITV documentary ‘Harry & Meghan: An African Journey’, the Duchess explained to her that she initially ignored friends’ warnings about the media.
She said: “When I met my husband now, my friends were very happy because I was very happy, but my British friends said to me: ‘I am sure it is great, but you shouldn’t do it because the British tabloids will destroy your life.
Meghan spoke to Tom Bradby about her “fight”
“And I, very naively, I am American, we do not have that there” What are you talking about? That doesn’t make any sense. I’m not in the tabloids! I did not understand.
She added that it had been a “fight” and “something very real happening behind the scenes,” especially as a new mother.
In this way, she herself is describing her wonderful ignorance at the beginning of her royal journey, and how it became increasingly difficult to fulfill the role she assumed, making Grace’s prediction of real life accurate.
