Consider yourself Meghan Markled if you've been ruthlessly dumped, says Urban Dictionary
Being verbed is a low-key dream most people nurture secretly, but one can only hope when that does happen, it does not translate to anything as drastic as getting royally dumped.
Unfortunately for Meghan Markle, Urban Dictionary has made a verb out of her name and suffice to say, the Duchess of Sussex going to be less than happy to learn what it stands for.
According to the online lexicon, ‘Meghan Markle’ is listed as "a verb for ghosting or disposing [of] people once you have no use or benefit from them anymore without any regard to genuine human relationships." It even lists the following sentences as to elaborate on the verb for good measure: "Do not Meghan Markle me when your movie comes out!" "She did a Meghan Markle on her friends as soon as she became famous." "Mary did a Meghan Markle on her poor husband as soon as she became famous." "She Meghan Markled her sisters from the Bronx."
Markle has earned a reputation of leaving her old friends and family members behind after becoming a member of the British royal family. Ninaki Priddy her childhood friend who she was once close to, but now has no contacts with, is one of them, while controversial talk show host Piers Morgan is another person to have been "Meghan Markled."
Her step-sister Samantha Markle and father Thomas Markle have also made similar allegations against her, and while the jury is still out on which side is to be trusted in the Markle family drama, we cannot deny that the Duchess has virtually distanced herself from everyone from her life after getting married to Prince Harry.
'Made In Chelsea' star Millie Mackintosh, for example, who was once a close friend of Markle's and was even expected to be a bridesmaid at her wedding to Harry, but she was not even a guest at the royal wedding. Rumors mills suggest that Markle dropped her just like she did Priddy, who according to Daily Mail, was critical of how Meghan ended her marriage to her first husband Trevor Engelson.
Mail on Sunday columnist Morgan explains his stance on the Markle's Meghan Markling habit: "As someone who has actually been Meghan Markled by Meghan Markle, I feel great empathy with anyone who gets Markled in life. There’s never any need for it. You should always at least have the basic good manners to tell someone why they are no longer of any use to you as you crawl ruthlessly up the social ladder."
According to reports, she is leading by example with her husband Harry also following in the same footsteps. His once-wingman Tom Inskip no longer has any spot in his life, much like most of his other friends who have also been Meghan Markled out of his life at his wife's instructions.
