When Meghan Markle joined the Royal Family, Prince William and Kate Middleton’s popularity surged, a royal fan page co-ordinator has claimed.
Meghan became a member of the institution when she married Prince Harry in May 2018 but the two stepped back as senior royals last year amid ongoing speculation of feuds within the family.
Harry admitted to Oprah Winfrey in March that he and his brother were on "different paths" and having "space" apart amid the supposed rift, while Meghan alleged Kate made her cry with a comment before their wedding.
But, in the early stages of the former actress' time in the Royal Family, one fan suggests she had a hugely positive impact on the public's attitude towards the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Speaking on the Royally Obsessed podcast, Alex, who runs the @DuchessMMGrace account on Instagram, suggested: “People seem to forget the Cambridges had an okay relationship with the press before Meghan came in.
“They were bouncing back from some turbulent years of them – rightfully so – putting down boundaries with their children with the press and saying ‘stay away from them’ because they were being very disrespectful.
“I think tracing that back, whether it’s just the really nasty headlines about Kate, to whether they were just lukewarm about her, it really changed overnight when Meghan came along.
“It was like ‘she (Kate) is the most amazing thing that has ever happened to the Royal Family. William is amazing, he’s smart, he’s kind' – when people before, they were writing about how he had a short temper.
“So it was really funny overnight just seeing this change and seeing how everyone just went with it."
But, she continued: “The Cambridges like everyone have their drama and that is the sad thing, it’s how it is. Everyone has their drama, and it was odd seeing it blown out of proportion.”
