The world descended into a frenzy when it was announced that the actress had started dating Prince Harry.

Ultimately making Meghan an official part of the Royal Family. She relocated to London and was given the title, the Duchess of Sussex.

Things were far from the case behind the scenes as Meghan was relentlessly attacked by the British press and public.

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.

It seemed that Meghan literally couldn’t do anything right…

And it didn’t take long for people to realize that this hate was a matter of racism.

And no other royal has ever received the volume of hate in which Meghan has – not even Prince Andrew, who was recently accused of being involved in the Jeffrey Epstein sex trafficking scandal.

And this sadly goes to show that racism isn’t just a problem here in America, but it is apparent worldwide.

There was absolutely no doubt that she was struggling.

In a joint statement, the couple said that they wanted “a normal upbringing for their child” and they feel that spending their time between the U.K. and America would be much more appropriate for their family environment.

“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. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honor our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages.”

“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.”

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.”

As promised, Meghan and Harry started their new life by moving to LA, where they have remained with their son throughout the duration of the coronavirus pandemic.

But Meghan has been keeping up momentum when it comes to charity work and speaking out for causes she believes in.

As mentioned before, on Tuesday, the former Suits actress spoke at the Girl Up Global Leadership Summit.

Meghan made the ten- minute pre-recorded video for the event, made at the Beverly Hills mansion they family are currently residing in.

Stating that leaders “don’t listen until they have to,” adding: “Keep challenging, keep pushing, make them a little uncomfortable. Don’t be afraid to do what you know is right even when it’s not popular.”

But it’s what she said next that really divided people, for one huge reason.

advertisement

“Your gut will tell you what’s right and what’s wrong; what’s fair and unfair.”

advertisement

“The hardest part — and it was the hardest part for me — is to chase your convictions with action.”

And many believe the former Duchess was attempting to make a dig at the Queen. According to The Sun, Palace sources said the Royal Family was not made aware of Meghan’s speech as it was a private event.

No matter what she does, she can’t seem to do anything right in some people’s eyes.

Some even called for the Queen to completely strip them of royal status.

And many thought she was the perfect woman to speak at the summit. “Are y’all read for our Meghan? For more than 20 years, since she was 11 years old, Meghan Markle has been advocating for women and girls. She’s not new to this. I can’t think of anyone more qualified and prepared and committed that can address our girls right now. #MeghanXGirlUp.”

Our guess is that she’s simply trying to empower girls to make a change. Either way,  they’ll always be critics out there. For more on Meghan, scroll on to hear about her political plans…
