“When Meghan was on my shows, I loved her passion,” the 84-year-old told Us of the future royal. “She spoke about her projects with a true burning passion about them. She was also a person who stood up for what she believes in. She is not the type to shy away from speaking her mind. She reminded me of Lady Diana in the way that she speaks up for what she believes is right, but I believe she may be more political than Diana was.”
