How I was bullied on social media during pregnancy - Meghan Markle


Meghan Markle

Britain’s Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, has recounted how she was bullied on social media during her pregnancy.

Meghan currently has two children with her partner Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex. They are Archie and Lilibet.

BBC reports that Meghan spoke at an event celebrating International Women’s Day in Austin, Texas.

The former actress criticised the “seemingly endless toxicity” of social media, arguing that people have “forgotten” how to be humane.

She said she found it “disturbing” that women were “spewing hatred” at each other online.

Meghan said she now keeps her distance from such comments for her wellbeing.

“The bulk of the bullying and abuse that I was experiencing on social media and online was when I was pregnant with Archie and with Lili”, she said.

“You just think about that and wrap your head around why people would be so hateful. It is not catty, it is cruel.

“If you are reading something terrible about a woman, why are you sharing it with your friends?

“If it was your friend, or your mum or your daughter, you would not do it.

“I think that is the piece that is so lost right now (with) what is happening in the digital space and certain sections of the media.

“We have forgotten about our humanity and that has got to change.”

Harry and Meghan tied the knot in 2018.

In May 2019, the couple welcomed Archie, their first child. They had their second child, Lilibet, in June 2021.

The couple relocated to the US after stepping down as working royals in 2020.
