Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s popularity will soon be in “steep decline”, a royal expert has claimed.

Meghan and Harry stepped down as senior royals in 2020 before moving to the US to live.

Since then the pair have sat down for a wide-ranging interview with Oprah Winfrey, where they made allegations of racism against an unnamed member of the Royal Family.

While other controversies have also followed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, including many of the revelations made in Tom Bower’s biography titled: “Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the war between the Windsors.”

And a royal expert believes that Brits are starting to become tired of the pair.

Harry Mount said: “They (Meghan and Harry) won’t be as gripping, ultimately, as the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.

"I’d say the currency of the Sussexes will, in a couple of years, be in steep decline,” he told Inews.

His comments come days after Meghan and Harry announced they would be visiting the UK next month to attend charity events.

The couple will travel to Manchester for the One Young World Summit on September 5, before heading to Germany for the Invictus Games Dusseldorf 2023 One Year to Go event, and then returning to the UK for the WellChild Awards on September 8.

The visit will be the first time they have been back in the country since the Platinum Jubilee celebrations in early June, to mark the Queen’s 70 years of reign.
