Meghan Markle ‘Doesn’t Want People To Love Her’, Wants Them To ‘Hear Her’

While Duchess Meghan Markle opened up about her struggle as a royal in the spotlight recently, she has now said she’s not concerned about what people think of her.

According to the Telegraph, one reporter said she

 “doesn’t want people to love her — she just wants them to be able to hear her.”

Interestingly enough, she also reportedly wants to take a step back from all the rules and regulations of the royal family, even when she’s making appearances.

She said during a pop-up at a bakery that employs disadvantaged women last week,

“One of the things I have realized since being here is that people have an expectation when I’m coming somewhere, so I’m like, let’s just be really relaxed, keep everyone nice and chilled, because at the end of the day we’re all just women. We all have a story to tell, and I feel honored that I am getting to hear yours.”

And that’s not all. She traded her curtsy for a hug at a different event.

Myka Meier, author of Modern Etiquette Made Easy said,

“While although Meghan was initially greeted with a curtsy, which would have been a respectful way to greet a member of the royal family in this situation, it’s clear Meghan was trying to show warmth through her offer to hug as a greeting.”

Meghan’s alleged remarks come just weeks after her and Prince Harry’s documentary, Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, aired.

Meghan revealed in the documentary,

“Any woman, especially when they’re pregnant, you’re really vulnerable, and so that was made really challenging. And then when you have a newborn, you know. And especially as a woman, it’s a lot. So you add this on top of just trying to be a new mom or trying to be a newlywed. It’s um…yeah. I guess, also thank you for asking because not many people have asked if I’m okay, but it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes.”

While she’s being criticized in British tabloids, she said her friends warned her of the brutal media and even encouraged her not to marry her royal husband.

“My British friends said to me, ‘I’m sure he’s great but you shouldn’t do it because the British tabloids will destroy your life.’ And I very naively — I’m an American we don’t have that there — said, ‘What are you talking about? That doesn’t make any sense! I’m not in tabloids!’ I didn’t get it. So, it’s been… yeah, it’s been complicated.”

Fortunately, Prince Harry has been defending her every step of the way. He released a lengthy statement as Meghan took legal action against a British tabloid.

“Unfortunately, my wife has become one of the latest victims of a British tabloid press that wages campaigns against individuals with no thought to the consequences – a ruthless campaign that has escalated over the past year, throughout her pregnancy and while raising our newborn son.”

“There is a human cost to this relentless propaganda, specifically when it is knowingly false and malicious, and though we have continued to put on a brave face – as so many of you can relate to – I cannot begin to describe how painful it has been. Because in today’s digital age, press fabrications are repurposed as truth across the globe. One day’s coverage is no longer tomorrow’s chip-paper.”
