Meghan Markle had the “biggest welcome” any royal has ever enjoyed, claimed royal photographer Arthur Edwards.
The 80-year-old snapper appeared on ITV’s documentary The Week That Shook The Royals, that looked at the fallout from Meghan and Prince Harry’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Arthur has been covering the royals from close up for the past 44 years and has questioned whether the Duchess of Sussex was as much as an outsider than she claimed to be during her chat with Oprah.
She had claimed that her and Harry left the UK due to the treatment they had received from the British press and from members of the Royal Family.

He said: “The fact is that Meghan got the biggest welcome to the Royal Family anyone ever got.”
Arthur cited the mass outpouring of love from the public when she married Harry, with thousands lining the streets and millions more tuning in from home to watch them tie the knot.
