However, some readers argued that Meghan had positively changed the perception of other members of the Royal Family among the public.

Usernam grannysdiatribe said: “Positive impact in making all the other royals like Catherine William, Sophie and Edward more loved and appreciated.

“Meghan showed the royals are transparent in their commitment to the Queen.

“No she’s not had a positive effect on them but her behaviour shines a light on how good they are.”

Username alica wrote: “I mean, she did have a positive effect, she made the rest of a royal family seem even nicer in comparison.”

And username Heffalump said: “No she has not had a positive impact on the Royal Family, except in one respect.

“They have closed ranks around the Queen, been brought closer together and can now see where allegiances lie.”

Meghan and Harry returned to the UK in June and reunited with the Royal Family over the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

A YouGov survey in July revealed that Meghan’s popularity has fallen from -39 to -42.

Just 23 percent of the public hold a positive outlook on the Duchess and nearly two-thirds, 63 percent, have a negative view.
