Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are going to take some tips from Princess Diana in the child-rearing department, according to a close friend of the Duchess of Sussex.
"I feel like Meghan and Harry are really going to keep this kid real," says Daniel Martin, Markle's friend and makeup artist. He went on to say that the two will ensure the baby eats clean, saying Markle enjoys cooking organic food whenever possible.
This revelation came during the CBS special "Meghan and Harry Plus One", but he wasn't the only one to comment on the parenting style of the royals. In fact, Ingrid Seward, Editor of Majesty Magazine, gave insight to how Princess Diana handled her children. According to her, “Harry’s mother was very hands-on with him. She was very very nurturing of Prince Harry.”

Harry and Markle's baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born on May 6, 2019, and since his birth, his parents have been breaking tradition when it comes to Royal protocol. To start, they waited two days to give the world their first glimpse of the newest member of the family. Well before the birth, the Duke and Dutchess of Sussex revealed they would ditch the traditional postpartum baby photo, which normally takes place shortly after birth. Their reason was simple, they wanted to have a little bit of privacy with their new bundle of joy before everyone with an internet connection or access to a magazine sees their baby. Instead, they wanted to wait to do so on their own terms, and while it was disappointing to many, most could understand the sentiment behind it.
They aren't the only Royals breaking tradition, however. In fact, Prince William and Kate Middleton have been raising their children — Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis— a little differently. They use a method called active listening, which sees the adult bend down to the child's eye level to speak to him. Obviously, it caused waves when the public first saw it seeing as the Royals are rigid in their public appearance, but it's something other officials, like Barrack Obama, crouch down when speaking to the children. Even actress Anne Hathaway said she was inspired by this parenting style, and she's begun using it with her child Jonathan.
