The report in The Express comes only days after stories claimed that Meghan, 37, was ‘struggling to cope’ with the level of public scrutiny and negativity she has faced in recent months.

Royal expert Victoria Arbiter was quoted as saying: “As far as her American fans go, there has been a sense there’s not been enough done to protect her – at some point, you have to wonder what is going to be the breaking point.

“Yes, she keeps on trucking at the moment but it can’t be anything but incredibly difficult. We need to let Meghan blossom and let her do the job she’s in the Royal Family to do and perhaps hold back on some of the criticism.

“It’s very difficult when you come from a previously celebrity background where a publicist can stand up for you or come out and say, ‘no, that report is categorically untrue.’”

This morning, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was christened in the Private Chapel at Windsor Castle at an intimate service officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are so happy to share the joy of this day with members of the public who have been incredibly supportive since the birth of their son. They thank you for your kindness in welcoming their first born and celebrating this special moment. Their Royal Highnesses feel fortunate to have enjoyed this day with family and the godparents of Archie. Their son, Archie, was baptised wearing the handmade replica of the royal christening gown which has been worn by royal infants for the last 11 years. The original Royal Christening Robe, made of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin, was commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1841 and first worn by her eldest daughter. It was subsequently worn for generations of Royal christenings, including The Queen, her children and her grandchildren until 2004, when The Queen commissioned this handmade replica, in order for the fragile historic outfit to be preserved, and for the tradition to continue.

The Duke and Duchess received criticism when they opted for a private christening ceremony for baby Archie.

It wasn’t long before Piers Morgan outraged Good Morning Britain viewers when he ranted about Meghan and husband Harry’s decision.

He even suggested Meghan should “go back to America” if she wanted to lead a private life.

She was then pilloried for her alleged response to selfie hunters when she made a surprise appearance at Wimbledon.

One claimed that she was told by a bodyguard:  “Would you not take photographs of the duchess. She’s here in a private capacity.”

Fans were also convinced that the Duchess of Sussex spoke about struggles in the public eye at the Lion King premiere.

A video has been shared on Twitter showing Meghan and her husband Prince Harry speaking to singer Pharrell Williams at the glitzy event in London’s Leicester Square on Sunday evening.

But eagle-eyed fans are claiming they heard Meghan saying “they don’t make it easy”.
