Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have garnered much publicity after the couple debuted on Time’s 100 most influential people. Though the photos that were taken of the couple to go alongside the nomination have been met with bemusement with one royal expert confessing he had not thought the images were genuine at first. Mail’s Diary Editor Richard Eden told Palace Confidential that the pictures of the couple look like “something satirical.”
Mr Eden said: “I couldn’t believe these pictures were genuine when I saw them.
“They look like something satirical.
“Maybe there have been so many memes of them online and everything since.”
He added: “When you look at the Queen who has advised so many prime ministers over the years. She’s head of state for so many countries – surely she should be on the list.”

Palace Confidential host Jo Elvin said: “On the other hand, they genuinely are the most talked-about people on the planet right now.”
“This is how they work as a couple – he is relying on her as his anchor,” she added.
“They had about five stylists for this shoot so it was extremely well thought through this photoshoot, I imagine.”
The Mail on Sunday’s diarist Charlotte Griffiths went on to claim that Britons could “see right through it and see that it’s strategic”.

“She’s ‘wearing the trousers’. I can’t take this stuff as seriously as the Americans can.
“The Americans lap this kind of stuff up but I just can’t.
“I don’t know if it’s something about being British, or being unsentimental.”
