The US media is reportedly losing interest in Meghan Markle and turning their attention to another Duchess across the pond, an insider claims.

In a lengthy sit-down interview with The Cut, the Duchess of Sussex continued with accusations against her in-laws in the Royal Family and British press, including that the media had called her children "the N-word".

Despite the fresh claims, however, royal fans across the pond are reportedly growing bored and are now turning their attention to Kate Middleton.

A US TV insider told The Telegraph: "Meghan is sort of regarded as tabloid fodder these days.

"I wouldn’t say her popularity has waned but her star draw has. She was riding on the cusp of being the Duchess, but a lot of their projects have failed and some of the lustre has gone.

"It would be unfair to say she’s not popular but we are doing less on her. We are more likely to do something on William and Kate now."

The interview with Meghan, published on Monday, saw the former Suits star refer to her strained relationship with the Royal Family as well as discussing whether or not she could "forgive" her in-laws.

She also referred to a comparison apparently made between her marriage to Prince Harry and Nelson Mandela's release from prison, sparking widespread backlash including from Nelson Mandela's grandson.

Speaking to the MailOnline, Zwelivelile 'Mandla' Mandela said: "It can never be compared to the celebration of someone's wedding.

"Madiba's celebration was based on overcoming 350 years of colonialism with 60 years of a brutal apartheid regime in South Africa. So it cannot be equated to as the same."

Meghan's most recent interview with Allison P. Davis not only sparked backlash for its content but for its timing too.

The article, which also alleged that Meghan wasn't allowed control over her own photos during her time as a working member of the Firm, dropped just two days before the 25th anniversary of Princess Diana's death.

The interview also comes just days before Harry and Meghan are due to touch down in the UK to attend a series of charity events, leading fans and commentators alike to question why the Duchess had selected that date for the controversial article to be released.

The Daily Star has contacted Meghan's representatives for comment.
