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.

Meghan has sacrificed a lot to be with Prince Harry...

And one of those things was any kind of unmonitored online presence.

Upon entering the royal family, Meghan was required to deactivate all of her social media accounts...

And use only the royal-approved account, Sussex Royal, from there on in.

Of course, Meghan obliged...

But she had reportedly been interacting with her friends and family through a private account under a fake name.

However, Meghan was later forced to deactivate this fake account...

And the reason is utterly heartbreaking.

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...

And Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born in May of 2019.

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.

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.

Meghan is the first-ever person of color to join the Royal Family...

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.

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.

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.

The statement read:

"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."

And they vowed to continue with their charitable efforts, despite the step down in role.

"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."

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."

But their decision was final.

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.

However, despite their fresh start...

Meghan has still been badgered by the public.

But you'd think, with her being far away in LA and off social media, Meghan wouldn't be affected by these trolls, right?

Well, it turns out that Meghan has actually been online, and she has sadly seen everything.

As stated earlier, Meghan was required to deactivate all forms of social media accounts upon her transition into the royal family...

via: Getty

But, unbeknown to most of us, Meghan had actually been running a private social media account under a different name.

She had reportedly been using this account to interact with her close friends and family...

via: Getty

A source told The Sun at the time: "Since she shut down her public Instagram, she’d had a fake account to follow her friends."

But, of course, this meant that she could gain access to what the headlines and internet trolls were saying about her. 

via: Getty

The source continued: "There was some really vile stuff written by social media trolls and obviously she also saw the headlines about her.

These headlines had a tremendous effect on the young woman...

via: Getty

So much so, that she decided to take action.

According to the source, Meghan made the decision to remove her private account.

via: Getty

"It really got to her and, in the end, she had to shut down that account just before Christmas, too, to protect her mental health."

The headlines and comments were taking their toll...

via: Getty

And the source claimed that "she felt very isolated and alone."

Meghan has always been one to speak out and voice her opinions...

So the thought of her being unable to do so in total isolation is heartbreaking.

Now new reports have surfaced.

As the first excerpt of royal reporter Omid Scobie and royal contributor Carolyn Durand's book Finding Freedom was released tonight in The Times.

It claims she wanted to stay in the Royal Family.

Even going so far as to claim Meghan was willing to do 'whatever it takes' to stay in the family.

But then things turned sour.

With Scobie and Durand claiming the pair struggled to understand 'why so few inside the palace were looking out for their interests'.

They were often outranked by more senior members of the family too.

The excerpt reads:
While they both respected the hierarchy of the institution, it was difficult when they wanted to focus on a project and were told that a more senior ranking family member, be it Prince William or Prince Charles, had an initiative or tour being announced at the same time—so they would just have to wait.

They also claim it was a joint decision to leave the Royals.

And that both Harry and Meghan were equally upset about leaving, but excited to start a new life too. Meghan told a friend back in March:
I gave up my entire life for this family. I was willing to do whatever it takes. But here we are. It’s very sad.

We can only hope that Meghan finds some happiness in her new life in LA...

And that the British tabloids will one day give her the break she so desperately needs. For more on Meghan, keep scrolling to read about her new book that could potentially spill a lot of royal secrets...
