    Meghan Markle has hit an "embarrassing new low" according to one expert who believes a slate of new viewing figures show just how little people are watching.

    The Duchess of Sussex, alongside Prince Harry, have spent considerable time carving out deals with streaming giants Netflix and Spotify.

    But it would appear their viewing figures are less than stellar, and according to one expert, an upcoming event and its projected crowd numbers show how little demand there is for Meghan.

    Citing a Women's Fund of Central Indiana event, expert Daniela Elser highlighted the stark contrast of attendees between an event just four years ago and the upcoming piece.

    Held at Marriott Downtown in Indianapolis, United States, Meghan is set to speak to a crowd of roughly 2,500 people on a "The Power of Women" event.

    Just four years ago however, former First Lady Michelle Obama had drawn crowds of around 13,000.

    Writing for News.com.au, expert Elser wrote: "The Women’s Fund of Central Indiana has quite the pedigree with former First Lady Michelle Obama speaking at their event in 2018, however, here’s the rub.

    "When FLOTUS took to the stage, the Women’s Fund event was held at an indoor arena and to a sold-out audience of 13,000 people. And Meghan? The largest capacity of a conference space at the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown is 2,500 people."

    Hitting back at the Meghan-attended event by noting that "The Water and Sewer Distributors of America will be hosting their get together" at a hotel of the same chain, Elser argued Meghan did not have the "pull" of a big guest.

    She continued: "Clearly the expectations about what sort of crowd Meghan will pull are not even vaguely in the same ballpark, or even indoor arena, as that of Michelle.

    "Unfortunately, as the timeworn cliche goes, numbers don’t lie and for Meghan, it’s been a pretty bumpy week on the numbers front."

    Elser highlighted a recent upload to YouTube from Variety featuring front-page splash Meghan rack up 213k views, with previous front-page star Ana de Armas recording 279k views.
