Why Some Royal Fans May Be Offended By Meghan Markle’s Recent Comment

Despite finding her prince in shining armor, Meghan Markle has been dealing with her fair share of struggles since joining the royal family. She’s been bullied to no end by Royalist. She’s been trying to find a balance between adhering to royal protocol and sticking to her guns like her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana.

The latest drama- the Duchess of Sussex dropped a bombshell of a comment, one that has undoubtedly ruffled a few feathers. 

While that may come as no surprise given her track record with the media, the exact comment the controversial Duchess said will shock you.

Markle has been making it a point to open up more, sharing her vulnerable side with the world. In line with her new open book strategy, she allowed journalist Bryony Gordon of the Telegraph to tag along on one of her recent outings. The bonafide feminist took a trip to visit the Luminary Bakery, a grassroots organization that focuses on empowering disadvantaged women.

During her visit, the journalist noted that Markle wasn’t the diva everyone makes out her to be. Instead, he noted she was a little “too human,” evident by her lax and loving interactions with the women present.

In the words of Markle, “We all have a story to tell, and I feel honored that I am getting to hear yours.”

These are not the words of an entitled Princess or Hollywood snob; they are the words of a compassionate individual willing to share her shoulder with her fellow woman.

With such a touching appearance, what could Markle have possibly said to garner negative attention?

“If I have learnt anything about Meghan in the time I have known her, it is that she is a doer, not a wallower. She lives in the solution, not the problem. She told me that she didn’t want people to love her — she just wanted them to be able to hear her.” – Bryony Gordon / The Telegraph

You read that correctly. Markle, a member of the royal family, isn’t looking for pubic love. She’s looking for them to listen to what she has to say. While to some this comment may seem sensible, it rubbed some the wrong way, and here’s why.

Why would fans get upset about Markle’s comment? 

First of all, a quick look at Markle’s experiences since joining the British Royal Family shows that people will literally grasp for straws when it comes to finding a reason to dislike the former Suits actress.

Every move she’s made, every photo she’s taken, every outfit she’s worn, and every comment she’s dropped has come under intense scrutiny. Becoming a new mom wasn’t even enough to trigger the haters to get off of their high horse.

That being said, there are definitely fans who will take it upon themselves to be offended by Markle’s comment.

If you really think about the words she shared, they are powerful and make tons of sense. But, for others, it shows her taking a stand against adversity. A move that her fans will love, but haters will despise. Furthermore, it also makes it seem as if Markle genuinely doesn’t care about what the public thinks of her.

This is a strange idea for the royal family as it has thrived off of the British public’s love since its inception. In fact, a lack of love from the public has generally led to trouble for those in powerful positions. 

Markle doesn’t have the public’s love anyway

When you think about it, Markle still hasn’t gained the love of the general public. She’s been doing so much good, but that hasn’t stopped negativity from flowing into her life. Tabloids still take advantage of her controversial nature, and Royalists eat up everything they put out.

That being the case, why should she pour her energy into trying to win over their affections. She doesn’t need them to love her. She just needs them to listen to what she has to say so she can help initiate the change she wishes to see in the world.

Sadly, Markle knew that her life would be torn apart by the public when she married Prince Harry. She loved him so much she took the chance and has been handling her burden ever since.

So it goes without saying that as long as she has her Prince’s love, she’ll be just fine.
