This opinion piece makes the case for why its author is making a considered opinion that the media have likely been handed their orders by the Cambridge court, to hurt the image of house Sussex
The specific purposes of the daily and persistent vilification of Duchess Meghan appears to be twofold. First, to convince the British public that, as a woman of color, Duchess Meghan does not belong in the royal family and second, to break her spirit.
Whether or not the British media like it, whether or not they are accepting of it, Duchess Meghan is a positive Force for Change, not just in the United Kingdom, but globally.
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.
The Duchess we saw last Thursday did not appear to be someone who is worried about the continuous bullying and harassment by the media.
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.
Thomas Markle, Sr. joined forces with his oldest daughter, Samantha Grant, against his youngest daughter, now a Duchess, in a cold, calculated, relentless and terrifying public campaign of emotional and psychological bullying.
