The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are one of the most high profile couples in the world. But now it seems after weeks of emotional strain, the couple are planning to take a well-earnt "6-week break."

The news comes just weeks after it was announced that Prince Harry decided to take legal action against the British tabloid newspaper, The Mail on Sunday after it published a private letter that Meghan wrote to her estranged father. Shortly after, a tear-jerking clip of Meghan opening up about her struggles for an upcoming emotional ITV documentary started doing the rounds on Twitter.

But it is apparent that not everyone is sympathetic to the Duchess, including Wendy Williams who publically called out Meghan recently on her show.

Meghan Markle has revolutionized the royal family...

Since she started dating Prince Harry back in 2016, the world has become completely obsessed with the former actress.

The couple wed in May 2018...

Meghan became the Duchess of Sussex, making her the first American, divorced, and black woman to join the royal family.

Since the wedding, Meghan has taken part in many royal tours, and visits all around the world. Having her first child, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, hasn't stopped her from fulfilling her duties.

Naturally, the world fell in love with the new duchess...

Her beautiful looks and elegant demeanor captured hearts all around the world, and her work for feminism and women's charities has set an excellent example within the royal family.

Cracks began to show early, however...

Meghan was quickly criticized upon her entrance into the royal family, and not all complaints were because she "wasn't royal enough." A family feud with her father, Thomas Markle, was quickly made very public and, when he didn't attend the wedding, the heat was turned onto Meghan.

Her dad reportedly hasn't met his grandson yet.

Thomas Markle made claims back in 2018 on British television breakfast show, Good Morning Britain, that Meghan had simply "ghosted" him, and he said: "I’ve still never met my son-in-law. Why couldn’t Prince Harry have got on a plane and flown to see me to ask for her hand?"

Sources claim that Meghan has cut all ties with her dad...

Sources said that "it's a terribly sad situation but Meghan has made the very difficult decision that she doesn't have an active relationship with her father anymore." "It’s obviously heartbreaking for her but she has to protect herself, her husband and her son."

Meghan has also been branded a "diva" since she became royalty.

Reports came through that Meghan was extremely high-maintenance in the palace and servers who worked for her had reportedly even quit their jobs due to her behavior. Of course, none of these reports are reliable, but they certainly made their way through newspapers around the world.

And, of course, there were reports of her supposed feuds with Kate Middleton...

It was reported that Meghan left Kate "in tears" after a strict bridesmaid fitting for Princess Charlotte. But, despite many claims that the sisters-in-law are actually very close, tabloids in both the U.K and the U.S. like to state otherwise, saying that Kate is "fed up" of Meghan's high-maintenance attitude.

Even the Duke and Duchess' habit of flying in private jets caused a stir in the media...

via: Getty Images

Amid current conversations about climate change, many people have noticed that the couple often use a private jet to fly from one part of England to the other, an extremely wasteful method of travel that will ultimately damage the environment. But, of course, Meghan was the one who faced most of the heat for this. The couple also recently made £2.4 million refurbishments to their Windsor home, Frogmore Cottage, which British taxpayers were not happy about - this was obviously all Meghan's fault too *eye roll*.

Meghan's parenting style was also criticized...

She was repeatedly mom-shamed after paparazzi snaps emerged of her awkwardly holding baby Archie - a struggle that any new mom can totally relate to. Shaming a new parent is completely uncalled for, and this made it very obvious that the press were desperate to stir hate.

Meghan's eventful life is something that the papers simply love to pick apart...

via: Getty Images

And it seems that British tabloid paper, The Mail on Sunday, took things a step too far by publishing an intimate and private letter that Meghan wrote to her father.

The Duke and Duchess, therefore, recently decided to take legal action against publishers of the Daily Mail.

This decision came as Prince Harry made a highly personal attack on the British tabloid press over the treatment of his wife, saying that he could "no longer be a silent witness to her private suffering."

It's being taken very seriously...

In a statement on the Sussex's official website, Harry announced that he will be going after the publishers of the Daily Mail for the misuse of private information, infringement of copyright, and the breach of the Data Protection Act 2018.

Harry issued an emotional statement...

"As a couple, we believe in media freedom and objective, truthful reporting. We regard it as a cornerstone of democracy and in the current state of the world – on every level – we have never needed responsible media more," he wrote. "Unfortunately, my wife has become one of the latest victims of a British tabloid press that wages campaigns against individuals with no thought to the consequences – a ruthless campaign that has escalated over the past year, throughout her pregnancy and while raising our newborn son."

"Up to now, we have been unable to correct the continual misrepresentations..."

via: Getty Images

...something that these select media outlets have been aware of and have therefore exploited on a daily and sometimes hourly basis." He went on to say: "It is for this reason we are taking legal action, a process that has been many months in the making. The positive coverage of the past week from these same publications exposes the double standards of this specific press pack that has vilified her almost daily for the past nine months; they have been able to create lie after lie at her expense simply because she has not been visible while on maternity leave. She is the same woman she was a year ago on our wedding day, just as she is the same woman you’ve seen on this Africa tour."

Harry outlined how the press "destroys lives..."

via: Getty Images

"There comes a point when the only thing to do is to stand up to this behavior because it destroys people and destroys lives. Put simply, it is bullying, which scares and silences people. We all know this isn’t acceptable, at any level. We won’t and can’t believe in a world where there is no accountability for this."

He expressed how his deepest fear is "history repeating itself..."

via: Getty Images

"Though this action may not be the safe one, it is the right one. Because my deepest fear is history repeating itself. I’ve seen what happens when someone I love is commoditized to the point that they are no longer treated or seen as a real person. I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces."

The case is about to begin...

Speaking to E!, a spokesperson for The Mail on Sunday said: "The Mail on Sunday stands by the story it published and will be defending this case vigorously. Specifically, we categorically deny that the Duchess' letter was edited in any way that changed its meaning."

And shortly after the case was announced, a heartbreaking clip of Meghan opening up about her struggles surfaced online.

via: Twitter

The Duchess was speaking as part of an upcoming  ITV documentary, airing in the UK tonight, and scheduled to air here in the U.S. on Wednesday.

She opened up about the reality of living under the glare of the media spotlight...

When asked how long she can manage the constant onslaught of attention, lack of privacy and ongoing tabloid rumors, Meghan revealed she just takes “each day as it comes," adding, “I think the grass is always greener. You have no idea. It’s really hard to understand what it’s like. I know what it seems like it should be, but it’s a very different thing," People reports.

The Duchess looked to be holding back the tears.

“I really tried to adopt this British sensibility of a ‘stiff upper lip.’ I really tried, but I think that what that does internally is probably really damaging," she explained.

She also pointed out that she knew life as a royal "wouldn't be easy."

And that an element of scrutiny is to be expected - but only to a certain level. “I never thought that this would be easy, but I thought it would be fair. And that’s the part that’s really hard to reconcile," she said. “If things were fair … If I’d done something wrong, I’d be the first one to go ‘Oh my gosh, I’m so sorry. I would never do that,’ " she added. “But when people are saying things that are just untrue and they are being told they’re untrue but they’re allowed to still say them — I don’t know anybody in the world who would feel like that’s okay."

She also spoke matter-of-factly about the realities of being a new mother.

via: Twitter

“Any woman, especially when they’re pregnant, you’re really vulnerable, and so that was made really challenging. And then when you have a newborn, you know. And especially as a woman, it’s a lot," she explained. “So you add this on top of just trying to be a new mom or trying to be a newlywed. It’s um…yeah. I guess, also thank you for asking because not many people have asked if I’m okay, but it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes."

But then the interview took a heartbreaking turn...

via: Twitter

When asked if it “would be fair" to say that she’s “not really okay, as in it’s really been a struggle," Meghan responded, “Yes." “It’s okay," she said. “The good thing is that I’ve got my baby and I’ve got my husband and they’re the best." Meghan even thanked the presenter for asking how she is coping, saying: "Not many people have asked if I’m OK."

The impact of the clip was huge.

The clip quickly circulated Twitter, with people flocking to support Meghan and slam those who have continually been throwing her abuse.

People said they were "devastated" by the clip...

Others pointed out the sadness in her eyes.

Over the weekend, it was announced that the royal couple will be taking a much-deserved break.

They are reportedly planning a "6-week-break" from royal duties over the festive period.

The break is reportedly for some "much-needed family time."

According to Metro, the couple are looking forward to their first Christmas with baby Archie and are expected to join the Queen and other members of the royal family at Sandringham in Norfolk. It is understood they will fly to Los Angeles next month to spend Thanksgiving with Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland.

But not everyone sees Meghan in this sympathetic light.

And Wendy Williams is one of those people.

Wendy has hosted The Wendy Williams show since 2008.

The show discusses hot and trending topics, with Wendy using her eccentric and confident personality to give her own personal, and often quite harsh, opinions.

And of course, Meghan Markle is this week's hot topic.

A clip from Meghan's recent interview with ITV, in which Meghan claims that she had no idea how bad the British tabloids would treat her, saying mockingly: "What are you talking about! That doesn't make any sense! I'm not in tabloids! I don't get it."

Wendy did not look amused by the clip.

She begins by simply saying: "Yes you did. You knew exactly what you were doing."

Wendy isn't buying Meghan's "act"...

"And I applaud her plot-action on the royal situation. But please, don't try to garner sympathy from us. You knew what you were doing," she went on to say.

Wendy went on to call whoever warned Meghan about marrying the Prince "some hating ass girlfriend," also throwing doubt on her overall story. "Or Meghan's lying to try and get sympathy, for us to give her sympathy," Williams continued, later questioning "if someone, in fact, told her that."

Wendy went on to offer some advice to the Duke and Duchess...

via: Getty Images

"Harry and Meghan have nothing to lose by moving to America. Why not? Move to America and live part-time in Africa like you want to do," she said. "You have to still go back to England. Have a place in all three places. Have a mansion in Malibu, a big hut - I've never been to Africa, I don't know - a big hotel or wherever you're gonna live in Africa and then have your royal palace place in England."

Wendy doesn't believe that Meghan was naive to the whole situation.

via: Getty Images

"Meghan, don't be surprised that the paparazzi are everywhere," she began. "Of course, because you're now a royal! They weren't following you when you were on Suits, we didn't even know who you were! But nobody feels sorry for you - you knew what you were signing up for."

Meghan certainly is no stranger to fame.

via: Getty Images

This is what prompted Wendy to accuse the Duchess of knowing exactly what she was signing up for when entering the royal family.

Watch the clip here...

As a veteran of showbiz, Wendy's theories do make one question the authenticity of Meghan's claims to sympathy, but of course, a newly-wed and first-time mother doesn't deserve to be ridiculed daily in the way Meghan has been for the last year.
