Since Meghan Markle officially became a member of the royal family, a lot of assumptions have been made regarding her possible relationship with her late mother-in-law.
Some people say Meghan and Diana have a lot in common, and that they would inevitably grow fond of each other. In the digital world, the Duchess of Success still loves writing and she mastered calligraphy at an excellent level. In her lifestyle blog, she once opened up about her love for hand-written notes. According to The Mirror, she is especially thrilled when she receives a response:
I absolutely relish it. I know my mailman’s name, I race to the door when the mail comes (usually just fliers or bills), but I always hold out hope there will be a letter. A sweet letter. And that I will have the tactile experience of un-creasing the paper, reciting the words, and holding someone’s thoughts in my hands.
Sounds a bit of old-fashioned, but at the same time, it reveals the Duchess’ sentimental attachment to sweet hand-crafted things that embody someone's thoughts and memories.
According to Andrew Morton, the author of the book Diana, Her True Story, the Princess of Wales enjoyed receiving letters as well.
He said in an interview with the NY Post that she found untarnished joy in writing personal responses to everyone who sent her gifts and notes.
It shows her absolute sympathy and attention to each individual who addressed.
Would having the same hobby make the ladies bond? Prince Harry said during the BBC interview that his mom would have welcomed Meghan into the family with open arms:
Oh they'd be thick as thieves, without question, I think she would be over the moon, jumping up and down, you know so excited for me, but then, as I said, would have probably been best friends—best friends with Meghan.
