Meghan Markle and Prince Harry left the royal fold in 2020.

"Whether there is any truth in it or not, people are quick to blame Meghan for their fractured relationship — making her into a sort of royal Yoko Ono figure," PR expert Luana Ribeira told an outlet.

Harry and Meghan's relocation to California was branded as "Megxit," and critics often accuse the Duchess of Sussex of influencing her husband's behavior.

"For Meghan, it would be a good move for her to take a leading role in helping bring these brothers back together so they can support their father together," Ribeira added.

In Harry & Meghan, the Suits star shared her struggles with royal life and revealed why she didn't bond with the Prince and Princess of Wales.

“I was a hugger and have always been a hugger. I didn’t realize that that was really jarring for a lot of Brits,” Markle said when discussing meeting William and Kate Middleton for the first time. “I guess I started to understand very quickly that the formality on the outside carried through on the inside.”

“There is a forward-facing way of being, and then you close the door and you are like, ‘Oh, great. We can relax now.’ But that formality carries over on both sides. And that was surprising to me," the mom-of-two admitted. "It’s so funny when I look back now because now I know so much, so glad I didn’t then because I could just authentically be myself without so much preparedness."
