"There are multiple pages and profiles across mainstream platforms like Facebook, like YouTube, like Twitter, Instagram, all seemingly set up with the single purpose - or the major purpose - of abusing Meghan Markle," News Intelligence director Padraic Ryanhe told Sky News.
He continued: "Meghan Markle is popular - she's box office.
"These people know that other people are going to be searching for Meghan Markle and, if you like, they're getting on board the bandwagon.
"They choose to use abusive terms to perhaps elicit disgust. They know it works and they don't really care whether it's positive or negative."
Despite this, Meghan previously admitted she does not read any of the hurtful comments or articles about her.
"I don't read anything, it's much safer that way, but equally that's just my own personal preference, because I think positive or negative, it can all sort of just feel like noise to a certain extent these days," she said while speaking at the International Women's Day in London.
"It's our responsibility. We make a choice in what we click on, we make a choice in what we read, we make a choice in what we engage in. That is our personal decision, to not feed into negativity."
