Paul gushed over Prince Harry and Meghan, saying that he believed the former actress is well prepared for royal life 

Asked by Piers what Diana would have thought about Harry’s new wife, Paul added: ‘She would love her, she is all of the things the royal family are frightened of mixed race, she is American, a divorcee. And that’s everything we have to embrace to move forward.’

He said: ‘There will be ripples in the royal pond and things will happen you know they will. I think she is steady and solid and a good person to enter the royal family.’ 

Paul added that the wedding was ‘refreshing and diverse and everything that the couple wanted and exactly what we need’.

Paul was also joined on GMB by Chief executive of the Diana Award Tessy Ojo, Diana award recipient Ryan Hick.

Tessy said that she was able to enjoy a brief chat with the new bride at the afternoon reception on Saturday. 

‘At the reception it was such a wonderful.. It was surreal, everyone was mingling they had their moment on stage and they came down to meet with everyone,’ she said.

‘It was a great opportunity to just say hello.

‘I said to her we had ten young people on the grounds, they worship and adore you and I would love to do so much more with you, and she said “fantastic that’s what I’m here for bring it on”.’
