Former palace insider Paul Burrell claimed Queen Elizabeth’s inner circle will be watching for the pregnant Duchess of Sussex to slip up.
“But if you stray away from him and start to do things by yourself, that’s when there will be danger. That could prove to be difficult and dangerous.”
When the former actress is stuck with the royal family at the queen’s Sandringham Estate, it will feel like a parallel universe, according to Burrell.
“That house is occupied by some of the biggest personalities and egos in the country,” said Burrell, who was Diana’s butler for 11 years.
“Everyone is jostling for position and attention, and they’re bouncing off the walls after four days. It’s like a pinball machine.
“No one could prepare her for it, not even on a film set, but this is the real world.
“Sandringham is ‘Downton Abbey’ on speed. It’s so detached from our world.”
Diana’s butler — and trusted bodyguard whom she referred to as “my rock” — was described as “brave” to come forward after he was targeted by dark forces within Britain’s MI6 spy agency desperate to silence him from telling all about the royal family’s secrets, sources said.
“I’ve made it clear I’ll never divulge the information, but I know too much. That makes me a target,” Burrell said.
A royal insider confirmed to Radar: “Everybody thought Di was paranoid and look what happened to her.
“It’s always a risk to go to war against the palace, but Paul is brave by speaking out, in part to protect himself, but mostly for Meghan. He wants her to be safe and be vigilant of the enemies around her.
“She and Harry have been married for seven months, but some of the staff don’t think they’ll last a year.”
Meanwhile, Markle was forced to fend for herself into the new year after her mom, Doria Ragland, was snubbed from visiting the palace over Christmas.
“Meg’s furious! She feels trapped and constantly exhausted,” a snitch explained to Radar. “She needs all the help she can get, but it’s clear the royals are setting her up to fail.”
