While many assumed she was talking about Prince Harry and Archie, royal author Robert Lacey believes she was referring to her relationship with the in-laws.

Speaking to the Express he said: “I have detected, from Meghan and Harry’s side, some signs of softening.

He continued: “I think there is another dimension to that, that she realises the statements both she and Harry have put out there – about the US election, about racism in Britain – will be perceived as controversial.

“And perhaps she ought to row back from that and try to stay away from controversy and I think that’s a hand outstretched”.

Meghan made the comments in her chat with Fortune’s associate editor Emma Hinchliffe, Meghan was asked about whether motherhood had made her more courageous or more cautious.

She said: “I am cautious of putting my family in a position of risk by certain things, and so I try to be rather very clear with what I say and to not make it controversial, but instead to talk about things that seem fairly straight forward – like exercising your right to vote.”

Her comments came after she and Harry faced criticism for becoming “too involved” in US politics following an “anti-Trump plea.”
