"She would really be so proud," Fergie said, as she is known affectionately. "Even before they got married, Diana would have been literally saying, 'I can not believe these guys have done so well.' They're a big credit to her."
In addition, Fergie says Diana would have been impressed with how Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton handled their transition to the royal family.
"Honestly, I think she would also be proud of the wonderful Meghan and Catherine," she said. "She would want to hug you and say, 'You're doing fine'."
Fergie, the ex-wife of Prince Andrew and mother of Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, added that she missed Diana very much, remembering her "enormous compassion" and how "nobody made me laugh better than her".

Although Fergie was not invited to the nuptials of William and Kate in 2011 (instead, she spent the weekend at a spa in Thailand), she was there when Harry and Meghan got married in May, although she arrived separately from her family.
Harry's wedding is not a state occasion, and he is not under the same pressure as his brother and sister-in-law were in terms of the guest list. Despite this, Buckingham Palace was pressuring Harry not to invite Fergie, but Harry backed away.
"They were very nice to them, and I can not thank them enough for doing that because it was a nervous breakdown," he explained.
Fergie came to greet the crowd, which was a bit of a surprise for her.
"It was quite extraordinary. I looked around like "Are you doing that for me?" Then someone left "Fergie" and it was old Fergie, "he recalled." I felt that sense of support from the crowd, which was very nice. "
Fergie also insinuated that Queen Elizabeth herself had something to do with her making the guest list.
"I just think that His Majesty is an incredible lady. What an icon for the country and one of the best people I've ever met. His Majesty guides us with this example, including me is a wonderful gesture, "he said. "His Majesty had known me since I was ten years old. I can not thank His Majesty enough for being so firm with me. "
