Agreed. They’ve only been married a little more than a year and already the tabloid’s lies and visceral are starting to weigh on them and their marriage. Like others, despite the lawsuit, I don’t think this will deter the media. It will likely get worse before (if that even happens) it gets better.
I also think they might’ve taken on too much too fast, specifically Meghan, which is playing a huge part in her struggles. Marrying into this world that is nothing like what it seems on the outside was no doubt a culture shock and that’s not even considering the vicious tabloids. Taking on all that comes with being a new wife, new royal and the racism within (cause I’m sure there are racist behaviors within the family) and outside of it, on top of becoming pregnant and having a baby, all within the past 18 months, is A LOT.
She really hasn’t had a moment to breathe. And though she (and Harry) are planning to “take off” six weeks, I don’t think that’ll be nearly enough time to decompress, re-center and get her bearings.
I wonder this as well. As been stated there’s no way to truly prepare for what’s in store, but based on Meghan’s interview in the Africa documentary she seemed pretty green about what she was in for. Which is truly shocking considering a) she’s a WOC and WOC are often vilified by the media even in the U.S. and b) how much Harry hates the media and blames them for essentially stalking his mother until they killed her.
She said a friend tried to warn her about what she was in store for, but she kind of blew it off. So what did Harry say? Or did he say anything at all?
So agree with this. She has her mother for support (and perhaps there are other supportive family we aren’t aware of), but then on the other side there’s her father, half-sister and half-brother trying to tear her down every chance they get in the media. Her new life would likely be more tolerable, not easy, but tolerable, if she had all of her family’s full support. Or at the very least , if they weren’t supportive, they weren’t running to the media every chance they got to attack her.
