Palace officials have prepared a “strategy” to shield Camilla but there was no “plan” to protect Meghan Markle, a royal commentator has bizarrely claimed.

The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Charles have faced a backlash since the release of the latest season of The Crown – which delves into their affair during his marriage to Princess Diana.

Their Clarence House Twitter account was forced to restrict comments after a barrage of abuse from trolls.

Meanwhile, others have left a raft of Diana comments on the couple’s Instagram page.

Royal commentator Daniela Elser argues that in her view palace officials have been quick to protect Camilla from “public dislike”.

She claimed in : “It would seem that the courtiers of Buckingham Palace and Clarence House, the official residence of Charmilla, have been quietly beavering away on a counter-strategy."

Ms Elser added: "The palace has proven they are perfectly adept at carefully calibrated PR manoeuvres, all undertaken to protect the image of Camilla from swelling public dislike and online hate."

She points to several respected royal writers who have come out in defence of Camilla and criticised the Netflix show – but offers no evidence that Clarence House and Buckingham Palace have devised a so-called “strategy”.

However, Ms Elser believes that the Duchess of Sussex did not receive the same kind of support.

She added: "No matter who was to blame for which particular publicity catastrophe, surely it would have been in the best interests of the palace machine to try and step in and attempt some sort of calculated fight back.

“While they did push back against a number of erroneous stories, such as a report that Meghan had pressured Harry to not take part in a pheasant shoot; that she and Kate were locked in a feud and one magazine’s claim that they planned to raise their then-unborn child ‘with a fluid approach to gender’, there was never any evidence pointing to some royal master plan to try and protect Meghan from the bombardment of carping and criticism she constantly faced.

"Where exactly was the overarching strategy? Where was the bigger picture plan to shield the palace’s most dazzling new recruit in a generation from the opprobrium being flung her way?”

Clarence House declined to comment when approached by The Daily Star.

Last week, Meghan bravely revealed she suffered a miscarriage after falling ill at home in July.

The Duchess of Sussex was changing babyArchie’snappy at their former home in Los Angeles when she “felt a sharp cramp”.

The tragedy took place on a morning that “began as ordinarily as any other day”.

In a personal piece called The Losses We Share, Meghan wrote in the New York Times: “After changing his diaper, I felt a sharp cramp.

“I dropped to the floor with him in my arms, humming a lullaby to keep us both calm, the cheerful tune a stark contrast to my sense that something was not right.

“I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second.”
