More than half the country think Meghan Markle has been good for the Royal Family.

But two in every five Brits think the Duchess is hypocritical on environmental issues.

A survey conducted by Tatler magazine for 'The Meghan issue' in December shows that 55 per cent of the 2,016 questioned think Meghan has a positive impact for the monarchy.

The former Suits actress has altered the usual course of royal life since marrying Prince Harry in May last year, campaigning for women's empowerment and environmental conservation.

39 per cent of them, however, said they thought Meghan was hypocritical on environmental issues.

The duke and his wife have faced criticism after taking a number of private jet journeys over the summer, apparently at odds with their views on supporting the environment.

The survey also suggests that 44 per cent prefer the Duchess of Cambridge to Meghan, while 23 per cent believe Meghan and Harry would be better off moving to Los Angeles.

And 40 per cent of those polled believe the media treat Meghan unfairly while 27 per cent think that is driven by racism.

High society publication Tatler's 310th anniversary December issue features an archive photo of Meghan, taken by Janick Laurent, on the cover.

It debates "The Meghan issue", with the cover headline asking "Does she conquer or divide" and writers such as Lionel Shriver and Lynn Barber "taking sides".
