Princess Anne “always knew Meghan Markle would have a very short shelf-life”, a royal expert has claimed.

Meghan met her husband Prince Harry in 2016, before the pair got married two years later.

After joining the monarchy, Meghan reportedly sat down with Princess Anne, but “left the meeting dumbfounded”, according to royal expert Neil Sean.

"Apparently, when Meghan Markle joined the Royal Family, she sought out Princess Anne.

"According to a very good source, Princess Anne gave very sage advice to the new royal.

"As we know, Princess Anne is the hardest working royal,” he said on his YouTube channel.

He added: "She does endless amounts of engagements. She turns up does the job and does not seek the limelight and represents the Queen.

"I thought the recent visit together with the Queen to the Thames Hospice was wonderful.

"But apparently Meghan left her meeting with Princess Anne dumbfounded.

"Princess Anne reiterated this mantra, she pointed out that it wasn't a working monarchy, it was a job, you turn up on time, you do your research, and do the duty.

"It's all about the project at hand.

"She also pointed out that whatever charities you are involved in you, you needed to get involved and get immersed."

He continued: "According to a very good source, Meghan Markle failed to warm to Princess Anne.

"And Princess Anne always knew that Meghan would have a very short shelf-life in the world of the British monarchy."
