Meghan Markle — Journalist Says: “Many People Consider Her 5 Clicks Away From Trailer Trash” [WATCH]

Meghan Markle can’t seem to catch a break.

Many on this side of the pond got a look firsthand at what the British media thinks about the wife of Prince Harry, and the mother of his son, Archie. 

Victoria Mather, a member of the British media, insulted Meghan Markle during an interview with MSNBC.

She said,

“I think what has really, really upset the British public is that Meghan Markle, who many people consider as only, you know, five clicks up from trailer trash, has actually tried to disrespect the queen.”

She added,

“And the queen is the most respected person, most respected woman in the world.”

Her remarks come after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry decided to step down from their royal duties as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. They also stated they wanted to be financially independent.

Shortly after, they reportedly relocated to Meghan Markle’s home country Canada.

Prince Harry has also called out the British media amid Meghan’s lawsuit.

He said in a lengthy statement,

“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.

This particular legal action hinges on one incident in a long and disturbing pattern of behaviour by British tabloid media. The contents of a private letter were published unlawfully in an intentionally destructive manner to manipulate you, the reader, and further the divisive agenda of the media group in question. In addition to their unlawful publication of this private document, they purposely misled you by strategically omitting select paragraphs, specific sentences, and even singular words to mask the lies they had perpetuated for over a year.

There comes a point when the only thing to do is to stand up to this behaviour, because it destroys people and destroys lives. Put simply, it is bullying, which scares and silences people. We all know this isn’t acceptable, at any level. We won’t and can’t believe in a world where there is no accountability for this.”
