QUEEN Elizabeth II became the biggest “influencer” of the Royal Family last week, beating Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton, influencing many Britons to spend their cash on a very expensive item, a royal expert claimed.
The Queen influenced Britons’ spending last week causing a very expensive item to be sold out, royal expert Angela Mollard claimed on Australian The Morning Show. Ms Mollard claimed the Dyson air conditioner featured in images of the Monarch meeting the newly-appointed Prime Minister Boris Johnson last week, was sold out moments after royal fans noticed the electric device. She said: “If you remember the photograph where she was meeting Boris Johnson after he became the British Prime Minister, in the corner of the room there is a Dyson air conditioner.
“Well, that thing is sold out.
“Now this has been in tribute to the Queen’s influence but I think it’s actually because Britain had a heatwave last week”, she admitted.
Ms Mollard then joked: “Okay, so the Queen is a huge influencer.
“Everybody should be paying for her social media clout because she sold out that air conditioner. Which is very, very expensive.”

The Queen was photographed with Boris Johnson last week as he was welcomed into his new role as Prime Minister.
But eagle-eyed social media users seemed to be more interested in a discontinued Dyson fan in the background of the picture.
The Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Link purifier suggested Her Majesty was feeling the effects of July’s heatwave.
Jane Merrick tweeted: “The Queen has what looks like a Dyson Tower Fan to keep cool, which is the least that can be expected for a 93-year-old who’s been made to stay in the 33C capital instead of the Highlands.”
Will Heaven, director of think-tank Policy Exchange, added: “Hard to beat Dyson here for British product placement.”

Other royal fans were happy to see they had something in common with the Queen.
One wrote: “The Queen has a Dyson air purifying fan, just like mine.”
Another one said: “The Queen is just like the rest of us. She warms herself up by the Dyson heater.”

Mr Johnson may have approved of the air purifier as it was created entrepreneur James Dyson – a Brexit supporter and who has regularly criticised Theresa May’s Brexit deal.
Elsewhere in the photograph, a nearby table had family photographs.
This included an official engagement picture of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton, an image of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and a joint portrait of William and Harry in military uniforms.
