Meghan Markle’s best friends speak out on several rumors about the Duchess of Sussex

Meghan Markle’s closest friends are speaking up in a rare interview to defend the Duchess of Sussex and stand up to what they call “global bullying.”

Since announcing their engagement, Prince Harry‘s relationship with former actress and American TV star has had its share of scrutiny in the media.

Meghan Markle has also been plagued with a number of rumors about her – from her father being in the media constantly to stories about her staff.
Meghan has been dubbed “Duchess Difficult” by the British tabloids since marrying Prince Harry last May.

The friends of Meghan spoke to People magazine anonymously. They include a former colleague in addition to the former costar, according to the magazine.

The five friends spoke in a bid to clear the air about some things that have spread about her personality and her relationship with her family.

“Meghan's friends say she's not like she's been portrayed in the British press and that she is a really kind and selfless and caring individual, the sort of person who puts other people first all of the time,” Dan Wakeford, deputy editor of People, told “Good Morning America." “They feel she had been portrayed as an uncaring daughter, as somebody who was a demanding bride."
One rumor circulated by the British press was that Meghan made her sister-in-law, Duchess Kate, cry at a bridesmaid's fitting for Kate's daughter, Princess Charlotte. Rumors have continued to swirl about a feud between Meghan and Kate, who is married to Prince William.

"What Meghan's friends are saying about the so-called feud with Duchess Kate is of course it's completely untrue," said ABC News royal contributor Omid Scobie. "In fact, these stories of really upset Meghan and have been quite difficult for her to sit back and watch play out in the public eye."

Meghan's friends also opened up to People about her very public feud with her father, Thomas Markle, who infamously staged a photo shoot with paparazzi just days before her wedding. He later had a heart attack and missed Meghan and Harry's wedding.

Meghan's father-in-law, Prince Charles, walked her down the aisle of St. George's Chapel instead.
The friends say Meghan, who remains close to her mom, Doria Ragland, wrote Markle a letter after the wedding, writing, "I'm so heartbroken. I love you. I have one father. Please stop victimizing me through the media so we can repair our relationship."

In Markle’s reply to his daughter, he asked for a photo op with her, according to Meghan’s friends.

"I think she will always feel genuinely devastated by what he's done," said one friend.
The friends also give a glimpse of Meghan's life today as a member of Britain's royal family. They say she "cooks for herself and Harry every single day.”

One friend described visiting Meghan in London and seeing her make tea and use towels to wipe down her dogs after they got muddy outside.

See some of the excerpts from the interview below.

A friend on the things that have been said about Meghan: 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.

A friend on how Meghan hasn’t changed one bit since becoming a Duchess: We’ve all been to their cottage. It’s small and she’s made it cozy, but the perception of their lifestyle and reality are two different things. Meg cooks for herself and Harry every single day.
A friend on how Meghan hasn’t changed one bit since becoming a Duchess: We had a couple of days together recently. Her husband was out of town on work. In the room she made up for me, there was 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.
A friend on Meghan’s relationship with her half-sister Samantha: 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.

A friend on Meghan’s love for children: When you see her at walkabouts when she crouches down to talk to the kids and genuinely has real conversations with people, that’s Meg. That’s how she crouches down with our kids at home. That’s how she plays with them. That’s how she engages with people and how she always has.
