Meghan and Harry are staying at the Carlyle hotel, which is also known as the ‘Tower of Power’ due to it’s influential clientele.Princess Diana originally visited New York in 1989 for a three day long solo royal tour. She liked it so much that she returned in 1996 following her divorce from Prince Charles.

It was reported at the time that she stayed in the 1,800 square foot 'Royal Suite' on the 22nd floor. In a 2018 documentary about the famous hotel, it's claimed that the Princess stayed in the hotel at the same time as Michael Jackson and Steve Jobs and once all three shared a lift.

The hotel is a favourite of the royals, and Kate Middleton and Prince William have also stayed there - most notably in 2014 when they attended a series of royal engagements in the city.Jennifer Cooke, director of communications at The Carlyle, told People at the time: "I heard Prince William say that in the lobby that he had heard so much about this hotel through the years and they were really happy to be here."

During the trip, Meghan and Harry have used their platform to speak openly about their mental health.After meeting the couple during their tour, The New York City mayor said: “They’re good people and they’re really committed to the world.“I got a great vibe, particularly the work that they’re doing on mental health ... I think the Prince makes a great point when he says, ‘mental fitness,’ calling it ‘mental fitness’ as a positive aspirational idea. That was one of the things we talked about. I really admire what they’re both doing on that.”

Decades before, Diana opened up about her own struggles in a 1995 interview with the BBC in which she discussed postpartum depression, bulimia and self-harm.“You inflict it upon yourself because your self-esteem is at a low ebb, and you don’t think you’re worthy or valuable,” she said. “You fill your stomach up four or five times a day — some do it more — and it gives you a feeling of comfort.”
