A royal biographer claims the Queen "doesn’t encourage others to talk about their feelings" – and that Meghan Markle and Princess Diana both "wanted something they didn't get".

Ruling for nearly 70 years, Queen Elizabeth's life spans almost a century and recently she met her 13th US President in office, Joe Biden.

Over the years there have been a number of controversies surrounding the royal family, from Lady Diana's death in 1997 through to Harry and Meghan's controversial interview with Oprah, this year.

A new biography by acclaimed royal author Matthew Dennison has revealed some fascinating insights into the Queen's private life, including some of the challenges she has faced from conversations with Princess Diana and Meghan Markle, the Daily Mirror reports.

Dennison has highlighted the barrier between the Queen and Diana and shown how they might have echoed years down the line with Prince Harry's wife, Meghan Markle.

In the book, Dennison says: “The Queen doesn’t talk about her own feelings and she doesn’t encourage others to talk about their feelings either.

"Diana had meeting after meeting with the Queen, who ultimately felt it was the same conversation happening over and over again. Diana never forgot who her mother-in-law was and that provided a barrier that was not of the Queen’s making.

"I don’t know if Meghan was overawed in that sense because Meghan was a grown woman with experience of life when she joined the royal family whereas Diana was a young girl.

"But I think both women wanted something from the Queen that they didn’t get.”

Discussing the prospect of Prince Charles as King, he added: “The Queen thinks – and Philip did, too – that the most important thing they’ve given to their children is this idea of service.

"It’s amazing what Prince Charles has done and I think his monarchy will resemble his mother’s because he shares her feelings about it as something special.

"When we’re young, we don’t care what we do as long as it’s different to our parents, but he’s had long enough to grow through that and reflect on the model of his parents.”
