A Royal Correspondent claims that the media is purposely being kept away from Meghan Markle at formal events so that they cannot hear what she is saying.
According to Page Six, the move avoids the media catching any comments from the Duchess of Sussex that may breach royal protocol.
London Daily Express reporter, Richard Palmer made the claims in a series of tweets this week.
As for the Duchess of Sussex, I'd like to make a couple of other observations as a reporter who's covered her engagements. Royal rota journalists are being kept further away from her than we were before the wedding. That means we can't hear what she is saying.

"Royal rota journalists are being kept further away from her than we were before the wedding," he tweeted. "That means we can't hear what she is saying."
He continued stating that lack of direct quotes from the Royal family makes for boring stories with limited shelf life.
"If you can't get direct quotes from members of the Royal Family that often makes for dull stories," he said. "You go up afterwards and ask what she said. Mr Bloggs said: 'The Duchess expressed the hope that women would eventually get the same opportunities as men in this profession.' Boring!"
Palmer also believes the move is to help Markle settle into her new role and life, but hopes that this will change in the future.
After reaching out to the Kensington Palace for a response, a rep told Fox News “This is something that we’re not providing any comment on.”
