Meghan Markle’s American fans are angry with the Royal Family for failing to protect her, a royal expert says.

Royal watcher Victoria Arbiter said some Americans felt the monarchy should do more to defend Meghan from attacks in the media.

She added that the US has had a long love affair with the royals and many citizens are delighted that an American is part of the monarchy.

However, she told Yahoo’s Royal Box podcast that some are fed up with the monarchy’s silence in response to stories about the Duchess of Sussex.

Meghan Markle’s relationships with her father and Kate Middleton have been under intense scrutiny

 

She said : “Overall, Americans – I’m generalising a little bit – but they love the royal family.

“The love affair truly started with Diana. With Meghan in there they’re very proud – it’s one of their own behind palace walls.

“There is a sense, however, they feel that the Royal Family hasn’t done enough to protect Meghan. And that is a theme that is developing.”

Royal expert Victoria Arbiter said some US fans are getting fed up with the royals’ lack of support

 

She continued: “They find it hard to understand the Royal Family’s philosophy of ‘we don’t say anything because all that does is perpetuate the story’.

“There’s a sense there that she’s been under attack and that someone should have stood up and defended her.

“But the thing is – let’s say Prince Charles did come out and say something. It would fuel the story more and more and more.”

Meghan’s makeup artist friend Daniel Martin previously burst into tears as he defended the actress on CBS television, arguing she did not deserve the negative publicity.

He said: “I know she doesn’t deserve all of this negative press. What’s so frustrating is that you hear these stories and there’s no truth to them.

“It’s not the same person. In the years I’ve known her, the years I’ve worked with her, she’s never had a diva fit, never.”
