Princess Diana's personal chef has spoken out after Prince Harry drew comparisons between his wife and late mother on his recently released Netflix docuseries, Harry & Meghan.

In Harry and Meghan Markle's docuseries, released in part on Thursday, December 8, the Duke of Sussex likened the American actress to the Princess of the People — who was killed in a car crash in 1997 after being chased by paparazzi — and Darren McGrady had a thing or two to say about his remarks.

"I've known Harry since I held him as a baby while Princess Diana was eating cereals in the kitchen at Windsor Castle. Prince Harry, with respect sir, your wife will never be like or similar to your mother. I knew Princess Diana for 15 years," Darren — who cooked for the late Queen Elizabeth II, Diana, Prince William and Harry for fifteen years — claimed to a news publication. "Not even close."

Meanwhile, that wasn't the only part of the couple's controversial docuseries that left Darren upset. Meghan appeared to mock the idea of curtsying to Harry's grandmother in the series, doing an exaggerated bow while sitting next to her husband as she recalled first meeting the late 96-year-old.

"The look on his face when his wife laughs about having to curtsey to the Queen says everything for me," the personal chef said after watching Harry appear unamused by his wife laughing and fake bowing for the cameras.
