Prince George turned 7 today.
In fact, mom, Kate Middleton, shared some adorable photographs on the Kensington Royal Instagram...
But, as news of the birthday reached social media...
Now, in the last couple of years, Meghan Markle has adorned more headlines than she'd care to count.The California-born Suits actress has had a rollercoaster of a transition into the British Royal Family, and she's had to make an awful lot of changes to her life along the way.
And this week is clearly no exception...Meghan really can't seem to catch a break.
Everything changed for Meghan back in 2016.The world descended into a frenzy when it was announced that the actress had started dating Prince Harry.
They married shortly afterward in May 2018...Ultimately making Meghan an official part of the Royal Family. She relocated to London and was given the title, the Duchess of Sussex.
The couple announced their pregnancy shortly after the wedding...
Even though the little family seemed to radiate with happiness...Things were far from the case behind the scenes as Meghan was relentlessly attacked by the British press and public.
Anything she did or said...The British tabloids had something to say about it. Whether she was being branded as a diva, a control-freak, a "monarchy ruiner," and even a bad mother, Meghan received it all.

Meghan's life was made a living hell for absolutely no reason...
And this sadly goes to show that racism isn't just a problem here in America, but it is apparent worldwide.

Even though Meghan bravely put a smile on her face throughout it all...There was absolutely no doubt that she was struggling.
So for many, it came as no surprise when Meghan and Harry made the bold decision to step down from royal duties earlier this year.
The statement read:
And they vowed to continue with their charitable efforts, despite the step down in role.
Obviously, this decision ruffled a lot of feathers...
And, of course, a large percentage of the public and press alike put most of the blame on Meghan, with some even branding her as a "snake" and a "traitor."
First things first. Queen has the power, not Meghan. MM is highly delusional if she thinks she has power. This is… https://t.co/yPQjVipyTW— 𝓣𝓱𝓮 𝓐𝓾𝓽𝓱𝓮𝓷𝓽𝓲𝓬 𝓓𝓾𝓬𝓱𝓮𝓼𝓼 👸🏽🌟✨ (@𝓣𝓱𝓮 𝓐𝓾𝓽𝓱𝓮𝓷𝓽𝓲𝓬 𝓓𝓾𝓬𝓱𝓮𝓼𝓼 👸🏽🌟✨)1593781367.0
