The interview, which took place on Thursday, discussed how the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are getting on with their new life in the US having moved away from the Royal Family. However, unfortunately the surprise interview happened to coincide with Prince Charles and Camilla’s tour of Jordan and Egypt.

Royal Expert Jennie Bond said it was “unfortunate” that the first overseas royal tour since the pandemic began was “overshadowed” by other news stories.

Ms Bond told OK: “It is very unfortunate, particularly coming in the middle of an important tour, the first official overseas tour since the pandemic of senior Royals.

“It always annoys the palace when other news stories overshadow a tour.

“So much work goes into these tours so that’s unfortunate.”

The royal tour, which saw the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall carry out more than 30 engagements, was conducted over just four days and was made in a bid to strengthen bi-lateral relations.

Wrapping up their tour, Camilla said that despite acting “like tourists” the trip was more than just a holiday.

She said: “We are not on holiday, we might be dressed up and photographed against the pyramids like tourists but we are not on holiday.

“We are working for the government and country and we are trying to make a difference.”

Despite the terrible timing of the interview Ms Bond added it was likely beyond Meghan’s control.

She said: “She probably didn’t have much say in when this was going to go out, but why she did it? I have no idea.

“It was innocuous stuff, it was starlet stuff.

“It seems to me that Meghan is no longer Royal, she had a brief interlude of being truly Royal and now she’s a celebrity again.

“And good luck to her, use that platform, build that brand, but I really don’t regard her as Royal any more at all.”

Meghan Markle’s interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show aired in the US on CBS at 8pm. It will be broadcast on ITV2 within a week of its US release.
