It can’t be easy transitioning from a commoner to a member of the royal family. And even though Meghan Markle was less of a commoner than most of us before she married Prince Harry last May, the road to being a Duchess has been a bumpy one for the former Hollywood actress.
Harry is hugely supportive of his wife, even while she bucks protocol left and right, but according to a royal insider, Harry has recommended that Meghan “move with ease.”
“It’s hard for Meghan in London because the press is so vicious to her there,” the insider told US Weekly. “This is her life. But her mentality is like, ‘Well, if this is what it’s going to be like, I’m going to do what I want to do. I won’t play by these rules.’”
Meghan has been embroiled in judgment since she started dating Harry. Most recently, she was mom-shamed for the way she carried her baby at a charity polo match, how she dressed at Wimbledon, and how she can’t seem to keep a nanny because of “control issues.”
Fortunately, she does get to revisit her entertainment roots every now and then, which must help her feel a little more “normal.” Recently, she attended the London premier of “The Lion King” and got to hang a bit with Beyoncé and Jay-Z, who told her and Harry to “always make time for yourself.” Whether he was talking about individually or as a couple, we think it’s sound advice. And timely.
