Meghan Markle’s Enduring Abuse Exposes Validity of Her Concerns about the Royal Family

Meghan Markle's recent experience with online abuse has reignited discussions about her previous claims about the royal family. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's recent appearance in Jamaica was met with mixed reactions from Royal fans. Following her appearance at the Jamaican premiere of Bob Marley's documentary “One Love” on January 23, Meghan Markle faced a surge in online trolling. This increased surveillance comes at a time when it was already facing a higher level of online abuse than usual. Journalist Liz Jones, who initially welcomed Meghan into the royal family in 2016, has come to her defense amid recent backlash.

In a Daily Mail column, Jones expressed shock at the severity of the online abuse directed at Meghan, saying it was unlike anything she had witnessed before. Reflecting on her change in stance, Jones admitted she distanced herself from Meghan when the duchess took a more assertive role, but was appalled by the cruel comments that followed the Sussexes' trip to Jamaica .

Addressing the relentless barrage of criticism online, Jones highlighted the danger this poses and questioned how Meghan would have coped with such abuse. While acknowledging that Meghan, like everyone, is not exempt from making mistakes, Jones stressed that the level of violence of online attacks was unprecedented. Comparing it to the vitriol directed at even more controversial figures, Jones highlighted the need to put an end to this incessant online abuse.

Fans rallied online to support Meghan, arguing that she was initially protected, but when she faced difficulties during her pregnancy, active protection diminished, leading to tragic consequences. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry officially stepped down from their royal duties in January 2020, announcing their engagement two months later. Currently residing in the United States with their two children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibeth, the couple continue to face the challenges of public surveillance and online abuse.
