After 2018 started with wall-to-wall excitement and largely positive stories about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, why has the tone of the coverage changed?

I have to say it has surprised me. After a hugely successful overseas tour and the news they’re expecting a baby next spring, I didn’t think there was the public appetite for negative stories about the Sussexes.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry have always appeared very close, Meghan we hoped would turn this powerful trio into the “Fab Four”.

Is Meghan being a diva? I don’t know.
