Prince Harry has been warned to 'lay off' Kate Middleton by his mum's former butler, Paul Burrell.

Paul Burrell worked for Princess Diana for more than a decade until her sudden death in 1997, and claimed Harry 'has a nerve' to upset his sister-in-law.
“I understand why they are upset, because Kate went to great lengths to find out if a royal life was for her and it caused her issues, but they both worked it out and she committed herself to a life of public service,” he told The Post.
Burrell also made a prediction about Meghan's next career move, which may mirror her husband's.
The former butler said a Meghan Markle memoir was 'inevitable'.
“[She] is inevitably going to write her side of the story because of how absent she was from ‘Spare,’ and that is because she is penning her memoir and telling it from a woman’s perspective.”
Prince Harry's memoir was released in January 2023 and quickly became one of the fastest non-fiction books of all time.
The explosive memoir detailed a number of extraordinary claims about life in the Royal Family, including having a fight with his brother, Prince William, in his home.
While there are no concrete plans for Meghan to write a memoir, Burrell believes it is not out of the question, especially given the couple's recent all-telling Netflix documentaries.
