A royal author writing a new book about Meghan Markle claims Britain lost the duchess "within a week" of her marriage to Prince Harry when she was reduced to being his "hottie".
Sean Smith spoke on ITV's Lorraine today, November 11, to discuss his new book, Meghan Misunderstood.
He said Meghan, 39, had spent her life as a "very serious person" dedicated to various human rights causes and said the UK hadn't "given her a fair crack of the whip".
Highlighting her personal achievements, the royal biographer explains: "My feeling when I wrote the book was that we lost her within a week, actually.
"She was a very serious person before she met Prince Harry… By then, Meghan had received a standing ovation led by the secretary-general of the United Nations."
Interjecting, Lorraine brings up Meghan’s eye-opening ITV interview and says: "It just seems terribly sad.
"They could have done so much good but it started to unravel in South Africa.
"She was highlighting incredible charities but it got overshadowed by her interview.
"And all the great work they had done, nobody was talking about that."

Meghan famously got emotional in the documentary and claimed that "nobody asks how I am".
Sean revealed the interview sparked his interest in Meghan and he began researching her life and got the idea for his book.
He says: "I thought, what's going on here? Why is she so upset?
"Who has been treated her poorly?
"It was, among other things, a very negative press and the men in grey suits in palace corridors.
"We haven't given her a fair crack of the whip."
He added: "I don't think there is any chance of them being full-time working royals in the future.
"It was only if there was some kind of compromise, and it takes two sides to compromise.
"I think they'd make a great addition coming back as and when. I think everybody would be pleased to see them…they have enormous appeal."
He then argues that the British public treated Meghan as an "other", while Lorraine dismisses this and claims she was welcomed with "open arms" and people were very excited about her and Prince Harry's wedding.
