Celebrities Are Rallying Around And Publicly Defending Meghan Markle Following Bullying Allegations

"Meg’s M.O. has always been kindness; goodwill runs in her bones"

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s tell-all special with Oprah aired on March 8, and throughout the interview, the couple revealed many damning revelations about the royal family—of which, included claims that the royal family allegedly had concerns over Archie’s skin colour, and that Meghan reached an extreme “breaking point” with her mental health. 

Just a day prior to the interview release, the U.K. Times reported that Buckingham Palace had launched an investigation into claims from former staff that the Duchess of Sussex had “bullied” members of its staff.

The Sussexes themselves have blamed the Palace on the report, with their lawyers saying that they are “using” the publication to “peddle a wholly false narrative”, and that it was a “calculated smear campaign. 

Of course, plenty of high profile names took to social media to express their support for the couple. Below, the celebrity reactions to the Oprah interview

“I don’t know that anyone has ever had to deal with the pressure, the politics and the press like this woman,” she wrote. “In the face of it all, I have never seen her waver from kindness, empathy and love.”
