‘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.



  • I like Megan. I think she is just what Harry needs and his mother would be proud! She carries herself well, she obviously cares about him and his passions. The media and women in general need to lighten up and let them get on with their life.


  • Meghan & Harry look like lovely integer people to me. Why the need to search for flaws and failures ? We all have them.

    • It would be so sad to dull their beautiful sparkle.


  • I would never know what it is like for her always being in the spotlight. I would hate to have people judge my every move. Being famous already and then a royal, I think I’d rather my small town life.


  • Fame is not easy. Being a royal comes with even more obligation, responsibility and subjection to constant scrutiny and bullying. I feel for her. Yes she chose this. Yes she knew what to expect. But one can never truly know how those things will impact them until they’re in the midst of it all. I would not want to trade places. I think Meghan Markle is fabulous and hope she can power through this tough times and grow a thicker skin.


  • 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.
