Because they couldn’t sit and watch the British tabloids shit all over their friend and drag her, Duchess Meghan’s friends have defended her to People Magazine. They give statement after statement about how amazing and kind and fabulous and not at all a huge bitch, she is. The writers at The Daily Mail and The Sun are probably cracking their knuckles and stretching while getting ready to fight back with stories about how Meghan was spotted at a voice coach’s office in London, weeks before People’s cover story came out, which obviously means she was preparing to do the various voices of the “sources” defending her.
Because Meghan can’t defend herself on Twitter, a group of five women who “form an essential part of Meghan’s inner circle” called People up and decided they would “stand up against the global bullying we are seeing and speak the truth about our friend.” What came next was flattering story after flattering story of how authentic and kind Meghan is. Gotta love that Royal Family PR team, they know how to deal with problems.
A former co-star (feel free to Google and guess) laid on the emotional trauma thick, saying:
“Meg has silently sat back and endured the lies and untruths… we worry about what this is doing to her and the baby… It’s wrong to put anyone under this level of emotional trauma, let alone when they’re pregnant.”
While the interviews are said to be “candid” the woman also requested to remain anonymous when setting the record straight to maintain their privacy. A close confidante says that the stories about how Meghan and Prince Harry are spending millions on renovating Frogmore Cottage are blown out of proportion and they’re both really down to earth.
“We’ve all been to their cottage… It’s small and she’s made it cozy, but the perception of their lifestyle and the reality are two different things. Meg cooks for herself and Harry every single day.”
Hear that? Meghan doesn’t have time to be harassing the staff at Kensington Palace because she’s so busy being her own staff! Another friend said:
“In the room she made up for me, there was a candle lit by the bed, slippers and a robe. We were the only two in the house. It was our time. She made the most lovely meals. She made tea every day. It was raining and muddy outside, so the dogs got all dirty, and she’s wiping them off with towels. How much she loves her animals, how much she loves her friends, how much she loves feeding you, taking care of you — none of that has changed.”
But where is the story about that time Meghan helped a blind nun across the road and then paid for her health insurance before bringing her home to the palace and cooking an eleven-course meal for just the two of them and tucking the nun into her bed while Meghan slept on the floor?
The only bit of real tea which is spilled came about her dad Thomas Markle and sister Samantha Markle. Thomas has been spilling tea about his daughter from the jump off, and Meghan has apparently pleaded with him to stop, trying to connect with him before the wedding even sending a car to pick him up for the airport but he didn’t get in. People also says that Meghan sent Thomas a letter after the wedding but he didn’t handle it very well:
“After the wedding she wrote him a letter. She’s like, ‘Dad, I’m so heartbroken. I love you. I have one father. Please stop victimizing me through the media so we can repair our relationship.’ …He writes her a really long letter in return, and he closes it by requesting a photo op with her. And she feels like, ‘That’s the opposite of what I’m saying. I’m telling you I don’t want to communicate through the media, and you’re asking me to communicate through the media. Did you hear anything I said?’ It’s almost like they’re ships passing.”
“They have been made to appear as siblings who had this falling out, and that’s not the truth at all… They were not a part of her life. [Thomas] knows how to get in touch with her… He’s never called; he’s never texted. It’s super-painful.”
Cue Samantha bursting into flames. Can’t wait for her familial rebuttal: “Me and my six friends hate that bitch and here’s reasons she’s mean! Number one: she doesn’t give me any money.”
