Meghan branded Royal Family’s ‘saviour’ with ‘modernising blueprint’ – expert

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been hailed as the Royal Family's saviours by a royal expert, for creating a "blueprint for modernising".

Royal commentator Gareth McLean warned that the end of the Queen's reign would see a "radical reappraisal" of the monarchy, one which he believes the Sussexes can influence in a good way.

Mr McLean went as far as to say that Meghan and Harry may make the difference between Britain becoming a "slimmed-down Scandi-style monarchy" rather than a republic, reports the Express.

Writing for Newsweek, he said: "Put it this way: British taxpayers have supported the monarchy for a thousand years so why not let Netflix for a bit?

"Say it quietly – whisper it, if you will – but the truth is this: Meghan is not the Windsors' nemesis but rather their saviour.

"Because without her, they are a bit of a sorry state, as demonstrated by the presence of the so-called 'magnificent seven' on Buckingham Palace's famous balcony at the end of the Jubilee pageantry."

Mr McLean went on to argue that the Jubilee celebrations were a "missed opportunity" for the Firm to reach out to the Sussexes, who travelled from California to the UK for the bank holiday weekend.

He also reiterated that the royal line-up on the Buckingham Palace balcony – Prince Charles, Camilla, Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis – was underwhelming.

He wrote: "Three pensioners, three under-tens – and William and Kate. Hardly the England World Cup side in '66, is it?"

Harry and Meghan's visit came just over two years after they quit as working royals for a new life in the US.

It also came a year after their Oprah Winfrey interview which saw them make a series of bombshell claims about the monarchy.

Harry and Meghan stepped out with the Windsors for the service of thanksgiving at St Paul's Cathedral.

But they were absent from many of the other festivities during the four days, and their relegated seats at the service were a sign of their change in royal status.
