Dr Phil Shares His Thoughts about Meghan Markle & Prince Harry in Fox Special 'Royals in Crisis'

Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry’s public announcement that they were stepping away from their Senior Royal roles has been a hot topic since it came out. Now “TMZ” will be airing a special to discuss the couple’s relationship.

One of the people who will appear on “Harry & Meghan: The Royals in Crisis” is the famous Dr. Phil McGraw. On Tuesday, the doctor took to Twitter and Instagram to share a short snippet of his interview on the special.

In the sneak peek clip, McGraw explains how Harry's late mother, Princess Diana, and Meghan have a lot in common. He explained that these similarities are what led the Duchess to decide her own path in life just like Diana.

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” - The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA
