Princess Diana and Meghan Markle shared one particular dream that makes it appear the two women might have had a lot in common.

  • Princess Diana's close friend shared that the two women both had Hollywood dreams.
  • He went so far as to say what Princess Diana had intended to create post royal life.
  • In other royal news, Who inherited Princess Diana's jewelry?

Princess Diana and Meghan Markle have more than family in common, according to a close friend of Diana's. Although the Duchess of Sussex had a very different start in life compared to Lady Spencer's aristocratic upbringing in Althorp House—the pair both were both California dreamin!

Diana's close friend and confidant, Stewart Pearce, told the Daily Mail that before she died she was developing a Hollywood career. "There were a number of major projects brewing in her consciousness through offers that had been offered to her," he said.

"The point was that Diana was really beginning to explore her creative power."

However, the royal had no interest in becoming an actress. Instead, she hoped to produce documentaries about her charitable interests. Sound familiar?

"But one of the major opportunities that she wanted to create, was to start developing documentaries about three charitable interests that would then be assimilated into major movie pictures," he added. "She was planning on spending a lot of time in Hollywood."

At the time, things were heating up between Princess Diana and her boyfriend Dodi Fayed. Dodi had recently bought a beautiful beachside pad in Malibu and Stewart claims that the late royal intended to move there with her sons Prince William and Prince Harry to jump-start her career.

A career that, according to Stewart, would have been a sure-fire hit. Referring to her instant rapport with the upper echelons of Hollywood's movie industry he said, "I know whomever she employed or worked in liaison with it would have been an excellent standard moving towards the possibility of an award-winning status." He added with confidence, "There is no doubt. She was all full of the action of co-creativity."

Perhaps that's where the creative flair involved in projects like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's podcast, their TV series and upcoming films comes from!
