Meghan Markle just can’t get a break.
Ever since her relationship with Prince Harry went public, people just can’t seem to get enough of criticizing and attacking the young woman and her every move.
Well, this hate has only been fueled further.
And it spurred a whole lot of backlash.
But first, let’s start from the beginning…
Harry and Meghan met back in 2016 when they were set up by a mutual friend who thought the two would hit it off.
Because the pair hit it off, and they immediately arranged to see each other again, eventually going on to have 2 more dates in London.
The pair officially went public with their relationship.
The world quickly became Harry and Meghan obsessed.
And people were delighted to hear the news of their engagement later that year.
The couple officially tied the knot in May 2018.
They were expecting!
On October 15th, 2018, the couple announced their pregnancy.
Archie Mountbatten-Windsor was welcomed into the world.
Harry, Meghan, and baby Archie make for the cutest little family.
But things haven’t been as rosy and smooth-sailing as they have been appearing.
Joining the British royal family was never going to be easy, given that a person has to give up their entire life in order to be a part of the monarchy.
But Meghan’s experience has been especially difficult.
And many attacked the Duchess, slamming her as “fake,” with some going as far as accusing her of breaking up the royal family entirely.
To the point where Kensington Palace was forced to issue a statement, pleading for the press and the public alike to take a step back when it comes to their scathing reporting and bombardment of Meghan.
Because they announced that they would be officially stepping down as senior members of the royal family.
“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen,” the post read.
And they announced that they will be splitting their time between the U.K and North America.
“This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity,” they wrote.
This was huge news.
And, obviously, it ruffled a couple of feathers in Buckingham Palace.
Is how hard this whole experience must have been for Meghan – a new mother.
That includes baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor – You couldn’t make up a more royal-sounding name if you tried.
What a year it has been!
The Queen herself was one of the first to offer her well wishes.
These pictures are too adorable for words.
With another adorable throwback photo.
But, the birthday post that everyone was talking about was filmed by Harry himself.
Harry recorded a video of Meghan reading to Archie who, as most mischievous 1-year-olds do, was excitably squirming and giggling in her lap.
Meghan was also reading as part of the charity campaign, #SaveWithStories, a campaign that brings food and learning resources to children impacted by the pandemic.
The video is insanely cute.
And Meghan looks confident and content in her role as a mother as she enthusiastically reads the story to Archie.
Which is the most recent glimpse at the young royal.
People have been criticizing Meghan for using the video as a way of getting “attention”, and have even slammed her for “reading to the camera” and not her son.
Good lord, people will pick at her for anything these days, won’t they?
In the video, many think that Meghan looks “detached” from her son and that Harry comes across as the primary caregiver.
Even though he isn’t even holding Archie…
It is total madness.
Where you can see clearly that Meghan is an attentive and loving mother.
But the most recent one has spectacularly shut down all the haters.
Jennifer, who is a mom to 3 children herself, posted a lengthy message of encouragement to Meghan on her Instagram account last week.
“Dear Meghan and Harry. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous son with the world and allowing us to join you in celebrating his first birthday.”
She then went to thank them for choosing the Save With Stories charity to commemorate his birthday with, and noted the change they will have made to the lives of thousands of children.
And, instead of criticizing and judging, she thanked and congratulated Meghan on her achievement.
“More than anything – watching you lovingly talk through the pictures while your clever Archie turns the pages – lifts all of us up and reminds us that what may seem like a duck just might turn out to be a rabbit. Thank you for this joyful and meaningful shift in perspective.”
What a truly beautiful message.
