She has no brains to understand that her hypocrisy does not fit in with her anger and envy of the royal family. She has lost all confidence,” the fourth one added.

However, there were people who supported the former 'Suits' actress too. A person tweeted, “Meghan Markle wore a black version of the cape dress she wore to the Queen’s birthday, a black version of the hat she wore to The Queen's Jubilee, and the Pearl and Diamond studs was a gift from the Queen . Her whole look was about the Queen today. Talk about being thoughtful.” Another person added, “I really feel for Meghan Markle, I can’t imagine how hard it must be for her to be there for her husband while also dealing with her own trauma being back in that toxic environment. Like she seems to be handling everything with class and dignity but still I want her out of there.”
