‘We need to check Megan Markle for flaws!’ As self-appointed public protectors of Harry. In the post-permanent wake of Diana’s passing.

That young, playful, cheeky, skilled, upstanding young man has taken an international wife and we are there to make sure it’s all OK.

But instead: ‘We need to check ourselves for being so unkind’.

And really we should just butt out.

Journalists reporting on stories about Megan Markle add little digs or twists.  On her hand movements, posture, her previous fame.  Making assumptions.  Basically turning ANYTHING into a negative.

That taxpayers pay for your livelihood so therefore what?  You have to pay the ultimate price.

Seriously it’s never far from Harry’s mind, what happened to his mum.

Media frenzy and environment did contribute to the car crash his mother was in.

Why are women out for blood when an individual woman steps up? Where is the sisterly support?

Megan Markle is a successful woman in her own right.  It was always going to be for the bride of Harry. Damed if you do.  Damed if you don’t. If she takes to the crowds, she’s Media hungry.  If she knew no fame before this life it would be, ‘ What is she doing there?’

Suck it up Princess.

Really, Megan has done no wrong but is presented as though she’s done no right.  How strange.  It’s not her behaviour, it’s our psyche and way of thinking.

Like the Ugly sisters tearing the beautiful dress off Cinderella, before the Fairy Godmother came along. Tearing down beauty. Women tearing down another woman. Yet there’s no Fairy godmother in this story.  The Queen I admire.  But she is married to her duty and an astute figure.  I couldn’t imagine her really asking compassionately how any of them are doing, emotionally.  Not to say she’s not lovely and upstanding, but in those dark palace corners, I can’t imagine she’d be standing there holding a flame,  to light the way for nervous, overwhelmed princesses.

Its a woman’s lot.  To stand alone as a woman.  When so many have gone through the same experiences prior.  Yet there can be that sense of isolation. A lack of soul sister support.

There’s an ugliness there.  And it is trying on the new Royal.

In a recent interview, Meghan has said that not many have asked if she’s OK.

It is in basic terms: sad.

I personally do like her.  The modern edge that she’s African American.  Adding a glow to the pastie-white body- be-jewelled glimmer scattered across the balconies, waving down at the masses wiggling British flags in gleeful hands.

Are We Envious?

But there’s this urgency in media society if someone doesn’t like a famous person to verbalise it, to openly condemn them.  Why? Because there’s a hidden envy?  Something inside a person unfulfilled and in Meghan’s situation, she’s a public figure copping the wrath of all this modern day unrest, unsatisfied, struggling community.

Yes, her position was always going to be under the spotlight. With pressures and agendas. But the amount of negativity is worrying.  We DO need to step back and give the royal couple a break. A mental break.  They don’t owe us their lives – literally.

How do you feel about Duchess Meghan? Tell us in the comments below.



  • The media should be punished for what it falsely publishes about Meghan and Harry, and the royal family in general. How they aren’t imprisoned for the rubbish they print is beyond belief. Leave Harry and Meghan alone and let them enjoy being a family.


  • I think she has been bullied and treated with cruelty
    She hasn’t done anything to deserve it


  • I don’t really follow anything in the media like this because they are just out for blood. I feel sorry for her – it’s a huge price to pay!


  • They seem like a pleasant couple, though I am over hearing about them, they should be left alone.


  • I like Meghan she seems lovely


  • I love Meghan and Harry and I’m so happy to see him happy. The tabloids really do go for the jugular with them. Can’t we just leave them alone?


  • Hey as long as she and Harry are happy isn’t that what counts?


  • Mind your own business mean pple. Just leave the couples alone.


  • She is a beautiful women.


  • I’m not really into the Royal family that much, I don’t mind them but that’s about it. BUT, I love Megan and Harry. They are such a lovely down to earth couple and I hate how the English press give them such grief. They need to give them space and stop giving them a hard time. It’s horrible and damaging.


  • Am not a fan of the former Suits actress but have only read about her after she became the Duchess of Sussex. Am a fan of all the Royals just like a lot of other people.
    I truly believe that Meghan is given some space and am sure she is such a good mother. It’s tough! We all know it. Just because she is a royalty doesn’t mean she’s not meant to feel the same way emotionally as we all did. Postpartum depression is hard. Am so glad she chose to speak the truth and not sugar coat the BS. Sorry please excuse my language here.


  • I feel sorry for her that she has to deal with so much so soon, I wish the media would leave her alone for awhile so she can enjoy Harry and being a new mum without the stress of paparazzi. Did Princess Mary get this treatment? I don’t think so.


  • I think she is a great role model. I think that in a climate where it has become fair game to bring each other down we have learnt nothing. This is their journey. Yes she is a royal but she did not sign up for giving away her soul. She is refreshing and challenges the status quo- bring it I say. She and Harry are using their powers for good. It is not all glitz and glamour. But she is an example of how we do not have to just accept things/ that takes courage – more of what this world needs to make changes for the good. The world is far too critical. I have become a royalist – and a follower as I like what these two people stand for. She is keeping it real to a degree- as much as she can having all that royals have at their disposal. If you listen to her speak- she spreads the message of hope and progressive change. I adore that she and Harry can show each other love and support- cameras or no cameras. She hasn’t tried to fast pace her body back to pre baby. She is in an imperfect perfect and more of what the world needs which some can see as threatening and with that brings the nasty in people. People need to focus less on Meghan and their own baggage. Even the stuff with her family- goes to show a reality but she is overcoming it and spreading love and building her tribe – all ten best to them.


  • I don’t know her personally but I don’t think much of the way they have behaved but I also detest bullying of any kind. Would I dress the way she dresses? No but I really don’t think she would like to dress my way either (trackies and hoodies aren’t very regal), do I like the way they kept everything about their beautiful bub secret, no but this is their baby. I think she went into royal life thinking it was like regular fame and didn’t fully understand what her life would become. She was probably told it would happen but not the extent of the horrible things said about them


  • Maybe they have to stop trying to change the tradition that has been there for many years and live quietly behind it – while they keep kicking up a fuss, it won’t go away. Diana played the media too, and Fergie eventually managed to have quiet time. One has to be quiet and stay out of the spotlight if that is truly what is wanted.
