Even The Queen couldn't beat Meghan

| Updated:

Meghan Markle has beaten Prince Harry, The Queen and Kate Middleton to be named the most popular member of the Royal Family.

The Duchess of Sussex came out on top in a global popularity survey, beating every other member of the royal family to the achievement.

The former actress has stepped back from the spotlight this year, only appearing publicly a handful of times in the wake of the coronavirus and her tragic miscarriage.

Prince Harry is reportedly keen to have his military titles reinstated.

However, Prince Charles is allegedly concerned about his son’s mega-deal with Netflix.

In fact, the latest series of The Crown portrayed the Prince of Wales poorly, which puts Harry in a somewhat awkward position.

He and Meghan have a Netflix deal that is believed to be worth an estimated £100 million.

A royal insider claimed that the Royal Family feel ‘trolled’ by the streaming giant.

A source told the Mail Online that the family feel persecuted by both The Crown and a new documentary about Princess Diana.

Buckingham Palace has confirmed the meeting will take place.

A rep said: “The Royal Family and Sussexes have agreed to an initial 12-month review to ensure the arrangement works for all parties.”
