Difficult duchess, hurricane Megan, selfish, social werewolf - in front of you are some of Markle's most evil nicknames given by Internet users.

Tyrant or Victim? Meghan Markle's actions that infuriated the public

As soon as Meghan Markle appeared in the palace, it became clear that breaking the prohibitions was her favorite pastime. Naturally, the prim and appreciating British tradition did not like this state of affairs. And the more Megan showed herself, the more hatred for her grew.

Today Markle is criticized for another reason: the public now and then convicts her of lies or double standards. We have collected all known cases for you.

Press on pity

We all remember the spring sensational interview of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle with Oprah Winfrey, in which the Duchess told how all these years she suffered from bullying by members of the royal family, emphasizing that she even thought about suicide. Megan told everything: she did not miss such minor conflicts as a quarrel with Kate Middleton on the eve of the wedding.

Markle shed many tears in the 2019 documentary Harry and Megan: An African Journey, when, in an interview with Tom Bradby, when asked if everything was in order, Megan replied that recently, few people are interested in her inner state.

Of course, many on the Web felt sorry for the wife of Prince Harry, and yet the overwhelming majority felt that Megan was just a good actress and all her words should be divided by 10.

Meghan Markle and other stars who hide real names

In Force Majeure, Meghan Markle's character is named Rachel Zane. It is interesting that the future wife of Prince Harry did not have to get used to the new name, because her first name sounds exactly the same. Yes, at birth, the girl was named Rachel Meghan Markle, and with age she gave preference to a middle name.

What do you know about poverty?

On the one hand, Meghan Markle is suing the tabloids when they wash her bones, and on the other, she gives a reason to talk about herself. A few days ago, the Duchess of Sussex recorded a video message for the Vax Live: The Concert to Reunite the World charity concert, raising a serious issue. Her speech focused on women's unemployment and forced poverty in this regard. Megan rightly noted that due to the pandemic, millions of people lost their jobs and were left on the brink of survival - this especially affected women with a different skin color.

Everything would be fine if Megan had not uttered this piercing monologue in Cartier jewelry worth 17.8 thousand pounds (or almost two million rubles). Markle also chose an outfit not cheap - 1, 2 thousand pounds sterling (or 124 thousand rubles). This trick of the prince's wife caused public outrage and discontent. "Talk about poverty in such jewelry ?!" - Internet is replete with comments.

Animal protection VS bag made of genuine leather

Meghan Markle stands for the protection of animals: natural fur - no, meat - no, traditional husband's hunting - no, bags made of genuine leather - no yes! Animal advocates are perplexed and scold the Duchess for the inconsistency of her words and actions.

Commercial title

After Harry and Meghan gave up their royal duties, Elizabeth II made a number of conditions: in particular, she forbade them to use the title for commercial purposes. But it seems that Markle forgot about the instructions and released her debut book "Bench", where on the cover her title "The Duchess of Sussex" is indicated. An interesting twist, considering that Meghan once insisted that the splendor of royal palaces, titles and other privileges did not matter to her.

Users on social networks immediately raised a big discussion, which resulted in Megan's accusations of fake and desire to get profit.


Double standarts

Oops! And the duchess can be seriously caught in double standards. In addition to protecting animals, Markle also supports the preservation of the environment, but … anxiety for flora and fauna recedes for a while when she gets into her one of the most environmentally friendly cars Cadillac Escalade. In 2019, activists lashed out at Meghan and Prince Harry for using private jets and helicopters, which have a carbon footprint.

There was no public apology. Instead, the couple began to appear more and more in clothes made from sustainable materials.

Difficult Duchess

It didn't take long for Meghan Markle after the wedding to feel in her place and start cleaning up the palace at her own discretion. In October 2018, Meghan and Harry's public relations assistant, Jason Knauf, announced the duchess's bullying of employees. It was rumored that Megan did not shy away from insults, humiliation and threats, she could fire her without giving any reason.

By the way, the Duchess's toughness is spoken of not only in Britain, but now in America as well. The conversations began after Archie's nannies did not stay at Meghan and Harry's house for more than two weeks and quit, accusing the prince's wife of excessive control.
