MEGHAN MARKLE and Prince Harry face waning support in the US, according to a royal expert, after a surprise reaction to the couple’s Time magazine cover.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry could face a growing backlash in the US, according to one royal expert. This comes after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex graced the cover of Time following their inclusion in the magazine’s annual Top 100 list of influential people. The Mail’s Diary Editor Richard Eden told Palace Confidential that the couple “seems to divide opinion in the States just as much as here in the UK”.

Palace Confidential host Jo Elvin questioned whether the magazine cover showed the divide between a more supportive coverage of them in America as opposed to the UK.

Mr Eden said: “I should say there are a lot of Americans who feel very strongly about this.

“If we say, ‘Oh Americans love this’. Well, lots of them do not!

“There have been a few articles recently that have been very negative about Harry and Meghan.”

US conservative pundit Candace Owens, who frequently appears on Fox News, tweeted: “I honestly cannot. The live emasculation of Prince Harry continues.

“I would never want my husband to be embarrassed like this in front of the world. Just so pathetic.”

Similarly, conservative columnist Matt Walsh branded the Time magazine cover featuring Prince Harry and Meghan Markle a “sad display” for the Duke

Sharing the front cover featuring the Sussexes, Mr Walsh tweeted: “Harry crouching behind his wife while grabbing onto her shoulder is the perfect representative of the modern beta male.

“The man has just been absolutely neutered. A sad display. The media loves it.”

In his response, Democratic Party congressman Ruben Gallego defended Harry, pointing out that the Duke is a veteran who served two tours in Afghanistan.

He tweeted: “There was a bounty put on Harry’s head when he served in Afghanistan as an attack pilot. He chose to still go. That doesn’t sound very beta to me.”

Harry faced a previous backlash from conservative commentators after he called the First Amendment of the US Constitution “bonkers” during a podcast appearance.

In response, Senator Ted Cruz simply tweeted: “Nice that he can say that.”

Representative Dan Crenshaw added: “Well I just doubled the size of my Independence Day party.”
