The Royal Family face a problem when the Queen dies and it’s all to do with the popularity of the monarchy, according to one royal expert. Tim Ewart, ITV News’ former royal editor tells Yahoo UK’s ‘The Royal Box’: “The reality for the monarchy is that when the Queen dies, one of the reasons for the monarchy’s popularity will be gone. “A large part of the popularity of the monarchy is based on the popularity of the Queen. Will that transfer to her son? Open question, we don’t know, but there are suggestions that he’s not as popular as she is.”
Meghan Markle has weathered her share of criticism since the news she was dating Prince Harry broke. And it has only intensified since their marriage and the birth of their first child. Royal commenter Victoria Arbiter praised the Duchess for her handling of the criticism, warned the she could reach her "breaking point" because of the negativity she has been facing.
A former royal editor says that until people have joined the Royal Family, they have no idea what life is like. Speaking on Yahoo UK's 'The Royal Box,' ITV News' former royal editor Tim Ewart says: "We talk a lot about people coming into the Royal Family being prepared for what it’s going to be like. "Kate and Meghan must expect to be the centre of attention, they have no idea, absolutely no idea what it’s really like. "When it was Diana, there were photographers, there were camera men, people weren’t using smart phones. Now every single person that a member of the Royal Family meets has a smart phone up. "Every single word that is said, doesn’t matter where the TV cameras are, doesn’t matter where the snappers, the photographers, they can be anywhere. But every single person has got their phone up or their iPad up, nothing is private anymore. "That’s something until those people have been through it, they have no understanding of what it’s like. I know very little about Meghan Markle’s early life as an actress, she was a well-known actress but she wasn’t hunted by the paparazzi. Suddenly to come into this cauldron, into this Royal Family is beyond anything that she could ever have expected and it will be very, very difficult for Harry, as it was with William with Kate, to explain just how intense that is. How every single every expression, movement, comment - bang. That’s going to be on the front page."
