A ROYAL expert has claimed that Meghan Markle has a “powerful influence” over husband Prince Harry.
Royal historian Anna Whitelock appeared on Yahoo’s Royal Box where she said that the Duchess of Sussex is in a “more powerful position than she has yet been” since delivering her son Archie Harrison last week.
Speaking to host Kate Thornton she explained: “I think Meghan now is probably in a more powerful position than she has yet been since she joined the royal family.
“She’s married to Harry he clearly dotes on her and adores her. She clearly has a great deal of influence over him.
“She’s now the most sort of media darling royal and she has a baby as well and so she holds all the cards actually.”
She added that the royal family should be aware of the influence that Meghan has.
Anna said: “I think she’s incredibly powerful and I think the royal family know that or if they don’t know that they should take due order of that.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their first baby together last week and have been settling into life as new parents since.
Meghan and Harry don’t have any staff at Frogmore Cottage and are relying on new grandma Doria for help, according to an expert.
They are yet to employ a nanny, chef or a team of staff at their Windsor home, says royal author Katie Nicholl.

The new parents are being looked after by “indispensable” Doria, 62, who has been staying with the couple for the past few weeks.
Katie told Grazia that the couple are currently having a “scaled down team”, and it seems they’re keen to maintain some normality away from the public eye.
It is thought the couple will get a nanny in due course, but some reports have claimed she is looking for American candidates – and haven’t ruled out employing a ‘manny’ either.
