Meghan Markle has landed in hot water this week (what else is new?) for one particularly cringy moment in an upcoming interview...
Meghan Markle can't seem to do anything right.
via: Getty ImagesEvery little decision she makes is subject to huge scrutiny by the media.
But this week, she's really got the internet feeling annoyed.Why, you may ask ...?
Well, she's been interviewed by Gloria Steinem.
via: Getty ImagesAnd people are certainly not happy about it.
Because she unveiled a new feminist slogan.
via: GettyAnd not only is it awkward ...
But many have pointed out, it's also wildly hypocritical.Yikes.
Meghan's royal journey all started with a blind date...
via: GettyThe couple met back in 2016 when they were set up by a mutual friend who thought the two would hit it off.
And their friend's hunch was apparently right...
And, in 2017, after a couple of months of privacy...
Meghan was instantly catapulted into the royal spotlight.
via: GettyThough she was already pretty well known for her role as Rachel Zane in Suits, the California-born actress was thrown into levels of fame that she had never experienced before.
The world quickly became Meghan and Harry obsessed.
via: GettyAnd people were delighted to hear the news of their engagement later that year.
And, not ones to waste any time...
via: GettyThe couple officially tied the knot in May 2018 and shortly after, had their son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
They make for the cutest little family.But things haven't been as rosy and smooth-sailing as they have been appearing.
Meghan hasn't had the easiest time...
via: ShutterstockJoining the British royal family was never going to be an easy transition, 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.
Many dedicated royalists weren't happy to see an American woman of colour in the monarchy...
She has also been relentlessly attacked by the press...
Kensington Palace has issued a statement this morning about the harassment currently being experienced by Meghan Ma… https://t.co/6KgnuDlXOk— The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (@The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge)1478599888.0
But, this year, the couple have seemingly had enough of the harassment and the criticism...
via: GettyBecause they announced that they will be officially stepping down as senior members of the royal family.
They made the announcement on their joint Instagram page, Sussex Royal.
The couple plan on providing a more "normal" upbringing for Archie...
via: InstagramAnd 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...
via: GettyAnd it was bound to have ruffled a couple of feathers in Buckingham Palace.
But what many people have failed to take into consideration...
via: Getty ImagesIs how hard this whole experience must have been for Meghan - a new mother.
Fuel continued to be added to the fire.
Since her and Harry's sudden move to Los Angeles...
But even then, they can't seem to catch a break from the press.
via: Getty ImagesLady Colin Campbell, a notorious anti-Meghan stan, released a book Meghan And Harry: The Real Story in which she describes some first and second-hand observations about the former royals, and in particular, Meghan's ambitions in the political sphere.
But what we need to remember about this is that Campbell may have never even met them before.
via: Getty ImagesThere has been no evidence of the 2 crossing paths, but it seems as though Campbell still loves to discuss their business, so much so that she released an entire book on it. Sounds a little obsessive.
But all these attempts to tarnish Meghan's credibility come out of fear.
via: Getty ImagesDaily Mail's royal expert, Russell Myers, has claimed that the Queen, as well as a number of the other prominent royals, are going to be left "distressed" after hearing some of the claims that Meghan wanted to discuss, including the fact that she felt unprotected by the family when she was pregnant with Archie.
As the couple settles into LA life...
via: Getty ImagesReports have come in that the pair are planning on pitching a TV show that will take a "political stance" on feminism and racial inequality.
Now, of course...
via: Getty ImagesThese issues are something Meghan has spoken up about in the past. Just last month she spoke at the Girl Up Global Leadership Summit, for instance.
But people don't tend to like the fact that she weighs into politics.
Markle only has a platform because she married a prince. The one thing she should know is that Royals do not get in… https://t.co/u3BBGTc5Ek— Susan Hall AM (@Susan Hall AM)1597992153.0
So, we can't imagine the potential show is going to go down well with everyone.
via: Getty ImagesNevertheless, the couple are reported to be attempting to get it onto the small screen.
The show is said to focus on "normal" people.
via: Getty ImagesAnd is alleged to have already been pitched to a number of TV executives, according to The Mirror.
An insider told the publication that the aim of the show will be to empower women.
via: Getty ImagesAs well as to highlight the issue of racism.
No more details on the reported project have been announced.
via: Getty ImagesSo, we guess we'll just have to keep our eyes peeled to see if this does come to our screens.
She has been interviewed by Gloria Steinem.
