Larry King says Princess Diana "would've loved" Meghan Markle.
The 84-year-old TV and radio host - author of 'People's Princess: Cherished Memories of Diana, Princess of Wales, from Those Who ...' - says the late royal would be proud of her youngest son Prince Harry, 33, getting married to a "normal" girl.
Speaking on Sunday's (20.01.18) airing of Game Show Network's documentary 'Cover Story: Meghan Markle - The Prince And The Game Show Model', he says: "Princess Diana would've loved this. Would've loved this, and she wanted the monarchy to become more every day and having an interracial marriage in the monarchy of London is a great step forward."
The flame-haired prince previously said his late mother would have approved of the former 'Suits' star.
The pair will tie the knot at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle in spring, and Harry believes his beloved parent - who died in a car accident in Paris, France, in 1997 - would have been as "thick as thieves" with the brunette beauty.
Asked what Diana would have made of his bride-to-be, Harry replied: "Oh they'd be thick as thieves, without question."
The former soldier admitted he felt his mother's absence especially keenly during the landmark moments in his life, like the announcement of his engagement to the 36-year-old actress.
But Harry explained that because Meghan's engagement ring features two stones from his mother's collection, he can still feel Diana's presence.
He explained: "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 with Meghan.
"It is days like today when I really miss having her around and miss being able to share the happy news.
"But you know with the ring and with everything else that's going on I'm sure she ..."
But before the royal could complete his sentence, Meghan said: "She's with us."
Harry also believes his mother would have struggled to have contained her excitement at the announcement.
He said: "I'm sure she's with us, jumping up and down somewhere else."
