Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, cannot, should not, and must not conform to some traditional, stereotypical and malleable standard of behavior to assuage her critics.
I totally support this law suit, and whilst we cannot predict its outcome, that should not matter. Prince Harry and his wife have been held to ransom for too long and it has to stop.
The Duchess we saw last Thursday did not appear to be someone who is worried about the continuous bullying and harassment by the media.
Fortunately, for Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry, they are a couple, not a trouple, so Ms. Vine, despite her bloated sense of self-importance and hypocrisy, does not get a say in how the Sussexes raise their child.
Every project or initiative presented by the Duke or Duchess of Sussex is subjected to sabotage, smear, and definitely vilified by the sanctioned royal gossipers, also known as royal reporters.
The couple, undeterred by the relentless attacks and driven by a real passion to make a difference, continue to use their platform to address issues that are pertinent to the lives of people in a substantive and value-based way.
Duchess Meghan did not grow up with Samantha Grant or Thomas Markle, Jr. Samantha Grant knows nothing about Duchess Meghan. All she has are a handful of old baby photographs and a graduation picture.
Grant is not only an enabler and facilitator of the British tabloids, but she is also the darling of internet trolls and Megxiters who are engaged in a sustained, cynical and dark campaign of hate, humiliation and “othering” of Duchess Meghan.
And, even as he wallowed in self-pity in interview after interview, not once did Mr. Markle mention that his daughter had begged him to stop speaking to the media so that they could repair their relationship in private.
