Meghan Markle has shown she is Princess Diana's "true spiritual heir" after a palace aide who alleged she bullied staff quit, a royal commentator said.

Daniela Elser said the Duchess of Sussex will continue to be argued about for "years, if not decades" with the world "still wholly in her inadvertent thrall".

It comes after it emerged Jason Knauf will leave his post as the chief executive of the Cambridges’ Royal Foundation at the end of the year.

He was the Sussexes’ communications secretary when he reportedly emailed concerns about Meghan’s treatment of staff to William’s then private secretary in October 2018.

Ms Elser said his decision to quit to move abroad with his husband had sparked headlines across the world due to his link with Meghan.

The coverage dwarfed that which every senior royal including Prince William received for their public engagements on Thursday, she said.

Writing in, she said: "Love or her loathe her, what no one seems to be when it comes to the lightning rod Duchess is indifferent. The strength of emotion she generates is such that the Age of Meghan is years, if not decades, away from coming to a close.

"The press and the public are still wholly in her inadvertent thrall. (Yes, I do have a mirror, why do you ask?)

"This is not, in any way, a situation of her own making, in fact I’d wager the pregnant mum-of-one would very much fancy a break from being the relentless focus of the world’s attention. But, sorry, I just don’t see that happening.

"In this the 39-year-old former Suits star has proven herself to be her mother-in-law Diana’s true spiritual heir, a glamorous rule breaker who still casts a very, very long designer shadow over the palace years (if not decades in the princess’ case) after her exit."

Last week Knauf’s “unequivocal” denial that he helped Meghan write a letter to her estranged father helped her win her copyright claim against the Mail on Sunday, which had published parts of the document, a high court judge ruled.

The Mail on Sunday, which printed extracts of the letter, alleged Knauf helped Meghan draft a letter to her estranged father and that he could have joint copyright.

His “unequivocal” denial of this led to Meghan being granted summary judgement in her favour.

Earlier this year the Times reported Knauf had expressed concerns over claims that Meghan had driven out two personal assistants during her time as a working royal.
