Why the hate?

There have been quite a few theories about why Meghan Markle seems to be receiving more criticisms than other members of the royal family.

For one thing, compared to other royals, Meghan is biracial and American. She also received judgment for being a divorcee. Also, the fact that some of her family members have been vocal about her in a negative light didn't help.

In addition, being a former actress, there were those who see the Duchess of Sussex as a social climber, determined to pretend her way to the top.

She doesn't look the part

Apart from these reasons, a few of Meghan Markle's fans have also opined that she receives a lot of hate from people because she doesn't exactly fit their idea of what a Prince's wife should look like.

In their opinion, it's mostly middle-aged white women that have a problem with Meghan and that's because they feel she is far from the 'Disney' expectation of the appearance of a princess.

The generally urged the haters to simply "let it go" and get over their discrimination of the Duchess.

Meghan isn't unaware of the hate

According to Express, the royal mother of one was overheard speaking to Pharrel Williams when she was at the European premiere of 'The Lion King.'

Pharrel reportedly said he was happy for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and many people are cheering them on.

Oh thank you. They don’t make it easy.

There will always be people determined to spread hate. But the good news is that Meghan's true fans always have her back.
