Meghan Markle’s Vogue issue just started an ugly and a bit over the top war between Piers Morgan and Jameela Jamil. The Duchess of Sussex didn’t do anything out of the ordinary: she guest-edited a magazine, did an interview with Michelle Obama and that’s all it takes for people to go insane.
Let’s start with fans and haters. The Duchess has her squad, and they call everyone haters and trolls. Those who dislike her call her fans sugars. So we have trolls and sugars. Common sense is lost in both of these groups because she is a wife of Prince Harry, a nice looking lady, who is now part of the British Royal Family. She is not Jesus’ second coming, does not walk on water, but she also doesn’t deserve to be hated.
Meghan Markle’s Mistakes
Meghan did have some public mishaps. Writing inspirational quotes on bananas for sex workers was not a great idea. Having that baby shower in New York wasn’t necessary. And of course, her spending is… Well, she loves her Givenchy.
The biracial former actress represents modern monarchy, woke and well-spoken. But she is no longer a rising star, she is working for the Firm and the only thing she needs is a smaller budget.
Meghan Before Harry
Markle’s resume before becoming Princess Henry is impressive. She is highly educated, hard-working woman, who knew how to take care of herself. She was a girlboss. Meghan spoke to the UN, had her successful blog and she was sort of a fashionista. Her old life included friends, fun, traveling, working and dating. Now, the sugars think she is the future Queen, while the trolls think she’s the Devil.
How do Morgan and Jamil fit?
Pierse Morgan met Markle before she met Harry. No one knows why is this guy obsessed with her, but his Daily Mail columns are amusing. They just make you want to protect the Duchess of Sussex. He attacked her Vogue project and went to Twitter to call out one of the cover girls, Jameela Jamil. Of course, she responded and we have another Twitter explosion.
But the story goes back to March. The actress hit out at Piers after he attacked singer Sam Smith for coming out as gender non-binary. They went back and forth for hours.
It’s Just a Magazine Cover
Clearly, The Duchess made this mess, just by breathing. Yes, Vogue and Markle herself are promoting the issue and saying a lot of nice things, but they won’t save the world. She tried to do something different, so more power to her. It won’t stop racist attacks on her just as it won’t stop people worshiping her.
The cover represents women who are forces of nature, trailblazers, changemakers. Somehow, the September issue of the fashion bible has the world divided, and something tells us that’s not what Duchess of Sussex had in mind. Meghan isn’t going anywhere, but if you were in her position, wouldn’t you want your old life back? How many articles about Meghan Markle’s Vogue can you find where the Duchess isn’t being attacked for no reason or turned into Mother Theresa?
