Meghan Markle started a "domino effect" by burning bridges long before Prince Harry showed the same level of "vindictiveness", according to an expert.
Royal commentator Kinsey Schofield said it "isn't sexist" to label the Duchess of Sussex the "problem" in the relationship after she "blew off" her own family.
"I think it’s hard for anyone to deny that Meghan started burning bridges first," Schofield told Sky News Australia.

"They say there is this sexism in blaming Meghan for everything that is happening but Meghan seems to be the domino effect, she blew off her family first.
"I don’t think it’s fair to call it sexist to look at Meghan Markle and think, 'Hmm, are you the problem?' when Harry never showed this kind of vindictiveness or revenge before."
Meghan has a famously tense relationship with her dad, Thomas Markle, who didn't attend her wedding to Harry back in 2018 due to health problems.
She is also known to butt heads with her siblings – her half-sister Samantha Markle has even sued the former Suits star over claims made in her 2021 interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Speaking of the lawsuit, Schofield previously told Fox News Digital: "If Samantha can prove that Meghan branded her, on a global scale, a liar and an unfit parent, and it negatively affected her way of life and income, a judge might allow the case to go to a jury.
"It would be embarrassing for Meghan because Samantha would likely make it a circus."
And Schofield more recently appeared on Sky Australia to discuss a recent South Park episode poking fun at the Duke and Duchess.
The episode, entitled The Worldwide Privacy Tour, starred the "Prince and Princess of Canada" who bore a striking resemblance to the couple, holding up placards saying "we want our privacy" and "stop looking at us".
The Prince even had his own memoir, "Waaagh", which looked eerily similar to Harry's own recent release.
Taking to Twitter, viewers showered praise on the controversial cartoon. One wrote: "South Park just obliterated Meghan and Harry," while another chimed in: "#WAAAGH and #SouthPark are trending yet again and Harry and Meghan are now sat at the table of Karma Cafe thanks to their obnoxious behaviour."
Meanwhile others were less impressed – one user wrote: "Even the creators of South Park realise the only way to get attention for their 26-year-old stale and dying show is to mention Meghan and Harry. H&M are the it couple."
And it was thought Meghan and Harry were equally unhappy with the episode after royal commentator Neil Sean said the pair's legal teams were "casting an eye" over the clip.
Speaking to Fox News, Sean said: "According to sources close to the ex-royals, it appears that, like so many things with Meghan and Harry, this may have legal ramifications attached.
"Their legal team are casting an eye over the episode to see what is wrong, and what could be turned into something more sinister."
However, a spokesperson for the ex-royal duo has since rubbished the claims, branding them "boring and baseless" and adding that the couple have no intention of bringing legal action against the show.
