Meghan Markle and Prince Harry make headlines almost every day. Now, the latest report suggests that she never predicted the level of the limelight she will be getting after being a member of the British royal family. A source close to the royals told People magazine, “Meghan has struggled with the intensity of the spotlight. Although she is a former actress, this is on a different level.”
The media scrutiny has been at its peak for her when she announced that she is pregnant. Since then, the royal couple has tightened their privacy especially to protect their baby’s privacy. For instance, the Duke and Duchess also kept the christening ceremony a private one. They released just photos from the event and till date, they didn’t reveal the godparents as well.
The source added, “It is an isolated existence. (It can be)lonely at times, and you do feel quite isolated. But so many other mothers are going through exactly what you are going through.”
As per the same report, Meghan and Kate now share a closer bond post Archie’s birth. Royal commenter Victoria Arbiter said it is not surprising that the two Duchess are connecting over motherhood despite rumours of their alleged cold war. Arbiter said, “Babies are a great leveler. The minute you’re bonding over your stories and sleepless nights, suddenly all the stuff that mattered before doesn’t matter anymore.”
After getting married to Harry last year, Meghan’s every move is scrutinized and criticized by people across the world. She recently received a lot of flak from netizens over the way she was holding her baby Archie at the polo event. Before that, she was bashed for avoiding attention from other audience members while she attended Wimbledon.
