Meghan Markle stepped into a fairy tale when
she wed Prince Harry, but after the romantic
nuptials, rumors about the unhappy state of
their union began to dominate headlines.
Take all that gossip with a grain of salt,
but there are some things about Markle’s marriage
that seem a little sad.
When the Duchess of Sussex attended the European
premiere of The Lion King in July 2019, reporters
paid close attention to her conversations.
One such convo reportedly involved music producer
According to ITV News, Williams said,
“So happy for your union.
Love is amazing.
Don’t ever take that for granted, but what
it means in today’s climate, I just wanted
to tell you, it’s so significant for so many
We cheer you guys on.”
Markle thanked him, of course, but she didn’t
end the chat there.
“They don’t make it easy.”
Her comment may have been a reference to the
press and the public scrutinizing her every
One Twitter user summed up the Duchess of
Sussex’s challenges in one tweet:
“She’s referring to the press and tabloids.
The dog whistling, Piers Morgan verbally attacking
her, and the nitpicking from commentators
talking about ‘breaking royal protocol’ and
let’s not forget having to deal with threats
and racist comments from trolls towards the
Let’s hope things get a little easier for
the royal rookie soon.
Markle has been inundated with reports detailing
her husband’s alleged unhappiness since their
A source told People in December 2018,
“Something has changed, and no one can quite
put their finger on it.
[Prince Harry] looks cross with the world.”
The report was published seven months after
he wed Markle.
The public has also scrutinized the couple’s
interactions at every event.
The author of a February 2019 piece in Woman’s
Day about Harry’s behavior at the Natural
History Museum observed,
“[Prince Harry] was there in body but not
He wasn’t as tactile as he usually is with
Meghan, which was a surprise given they’re
usually hand-in-hand at all times.
He’s even stopped laughing and joking with
photographers like he used to as well.
Harry seems distant, like he has a lot on
Not only does Markle have to deal with unfortunate
rumors about her and her husband, but she’s
also subjected to stories detailing her supposed
feuds with other members of the royal family.
A June 2019 article in The Sunday Times accused
Prince Philip of trying to talk Prince Harry
out of marrying Markle in May 2018.
The Duke of Sussex’s grandfather allegedly
“One steps out with actresses, one doesn’t
This may have been a reference to her time
starring on Suits.
Then there’s the case of Kate Middleton, Prince
William’s wife and Markle’s alleged nemesis.
Numerous reports have surfaced about animosity
between the pair.
One report even claimed that Markle flipped
out on the Duchess of Cambridge during Archie’s
July 2019 christening.
According to New Idea, a source alleged,
“Kate was very upset after and was visibly
She knows Meghan is emotional at the moment
and was taking everything out on her at the
rehearsal, but it didn’t make it any easier
In an especially unfair twist, Markle is seemingly
blamed for everything, even when it comes
to her husband’s friendships.
For proof, look no further than the accusation
that Markle is responsible for, quote, “pushing
out” Prince Harry’s pals.
“One thing I have heard is, because I’m friends
with a lot of Prince Harry’s friends – one
is a very close friend – is that she has pushed
them all out.”
Television personality Lizzy Cundy claims
that the duchess is, quote, “ruling the roost,”
and that she even pushed out one of Harry’s
It’s probably best to take her report with
a grain of salt, but if this story has any
truth to it, it’s safe to assume Prince Harry
had a say in it.
It’s likely Markle couldn’t have anticipated
just how different life would be across the
According to one source, the Duchess of Sussex
is “miserable” with her new life.
The source told Us Weekly,
“Meghan made a huge sacrifice by moving across
the pond, away from her mom and friends.
Marrying into the royal family isn’t anywhere
near as glamorous as it seems, so in a lot
of ways Harry feels responsible for Meghan
being so miserable.”
Apparently, Markle’s so-called struggle revolves
around her inability to speak out or clap
back when things get rough.
As an insider told Us Weekly,
“She’s always relied on her own voice to stand
up for others, and for herself.
So not being able to say anything is a debilitating
She’s always been so independent, her entire
life, and that’s all been taken away from
