Why Prince William’s Cheating Scandal Has People Defending Meghan Markle

Cheating scandals are nothing new for the British royal family. Prince Charles famously had an affair with his current wife Camilla Shand while married to Princess Diana.

But despite knowing the family history, lot’s of people have been shocked at reports that Prince William has been cheating on his wife Kate Middleton with Middleton’s former friend, Rose Hanbury.

How is Meghan Markle involved?

Usually, when you are accused of cheating on your wife, the issue stays between the two of you. But for some reason, a lot of media is obsessed with blaming Meghan Markle for anything that goes wrong in the royal family.

Life & Style recently published a cover story claiming that Markle told her sister-in-law that it was her own fault that William cheated on her.

Today marks the 70th anniversary of the modern Commonwealth – a family of 53 countries working together to promote democracy, protect human rights, regenerate the environment, and focus not on what makes us different – but rather what we have in ‘common.’ What unites us versus what divides us. Representing nearly one third of the world’s population, 60% of whom are under the age of 30, the Commonwealth also serves as a champion for youth empowerment, which is a key focus of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Her Majesty The Queen serves as patron of the @queenscomtrust, which Their Royal Highnesses proudly serve as President and Vice-President of. The Duke is also Commonwealth Youth Ambassador. Through The Duke and Duchess’ Commonwealth travels, they have worked with and supported young leaders on mobilizing youth engagement, and working towards a more unified future that spearheads progress, sustainability, optimism, and taking action. With that said, Mozambique, a member state of the Commonwealth, is currently enduring Cyclone Kenneth, the most destructive natural disaster the northern coast has ever experienced. On the heels of Cyclone Idai (where over 1000 people lost their lives) this cyclone will leave the people of Mozambique victim to catastrophic flooding, food insecurity, displacement, and obliteration of their homes and villages.

In the story, “Princess’ Worst Nightmare: William Cheats On Kate — With Her Friend,” the outlet claims that they “exclusively learned that rather than offer a shoulder to cry on, Meghan took the opportunity to tell Kate that William’s alleged wandering eye is her fault.”

How do fans feel about Markle being slandered?

Though these claims are probably not true, fans are not happy with the way Markle has been treated in the media. Instead of finding out whether or not William actually cheated on his wife, several outlets have put their focus on Markle’s role in the whole scandal.

And fans are not having it.

Some commented on the fact that Markle was being blamed for everything, while William is getting off scot-free.

The Duchess can’t even do normal tasks without people turning it into news.

One user tweeted, commenting on how the royal family likes to blame everything on Markle.

“The royal family trying to find a way to blame Meghan Markle for Prince William cheating on Kate Middleton,” one user tweeted with a picture of an intricate map.

Is Middleton mad at Markle?

Though certain outlets are determined to make us believe that Middleton and Markle are at odds, Middleton seems to actually be supporting Markle as she nears the end of her pregnancy.

Markle was unable to go to any Easter services as she is taking it easy until the birth of her first child.

After attending Easter services, Middleton and William went to Frogmore Cottage to visit Markle.

“William and Catherine visited because Meghan was unable to attend the service,” a close source told Harper’s Bazaar. “They wanted to be supportive and see how she is doing. It was a lovely afternoon.”

If the women were truly at odds, why would Middleton take the time to go visit Markle?

A few days later, Middleton and Prince Harry went to the services of commemoration and thanksgiving for Anzac Day together, as well. The ceremony honors the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps who died during the Battle of Gallipoli in 1915.

If Middleton was mad at Markle, would she be hanging out with her husband? Probably not.
