The Duchess of Sussex, aka Meghan Markle, appeared to step into a real-life fairy tale when she wed Prince Harry in May 2018. From the televised ceremony at Windsor Castle to the glamorous reception, it was an affair to remember, but shortly after the glitzy nuptials, public opinion began to shift against Markle, with many spreading rumors about the supposedly unhappy state of her union. It’s safe to say much of the gossip is simply that — gossip, which makes the whole situation even more depressing. Imagine how it must feel to battle relationship rumors as newlyweds!
That said, there could be some truth to some of the speculation surrounding the royal power couple. Just one example? Look no further than a telling conversation Markle had with musician Pharrell Williams at the European premiere of the live-action Lion King in July 2019. We won’t reveal the details of the convo just yet, but let’s just say her comments about married life were a bit forlorn.

Seriously. It’s significant. We cheer you guys on,” he said, per ITV News. Markle thanked Pharrell, of course, but she didn’t end the chat there. “They don’t make it easy,” she told him — a possible reference to the press and the public scrutinizing her every move.
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 couple.” Let’s hope things get a little easier for the royal rookie soon…Continue Reading
