As the royal family determines the future of Harry and Meghan, questions are being asked of what pushed the couple away.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are giving up their HRH titles in order to live a more private lifestyle away from the glare of the public eye. 

Commentators throughout the last weeks have pored over press coverage looking for clues as to why they are leaving. One study has found that 72 per cent of coverage of Meghan was negative, compared to just 31 per cent of her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton. 

Is it the media's fault for their treatment of Harry and Meghan? Andrew Dickens discussed the latest on the royals with Jo McCarroll and Lorna Subritzky.
